The passing of Prop 8, which bans gay marriage in the State of California, has been causing a riot on The Frisky, but that’s nothing compared to what been going on in the streets and in the gay community. Borrowing chants from the Civil Rights movement, homosexuals have rallied together this week to fight for their rights to have families.

Oh, and don’t forget — Amelia will be liveblogging “True Blood” again on Sunday at 9pm EST! Keep reading »
The Urban Dictionary word of the day for Nov. 5 was “Obama baby.” Definition: “A child conceived after Obama was proclaimed President by way of celebratory sex, or any baby born under Barack Obama’s term(s).” Yesterday’s was “election erection.” Participating in the electoral process this week really turned some people on! A quick glance at Craigslist’s missed connections listings showed that a bunch of people narrowly missed the possible loves of their lives on Tuesday night (keep reading to see a few). Did you get lucky or have a sexless night because of the election results? Keep reading »
Last night on “Grey’s Anatomy” we finally got to see how ABC execs decided to cut out Erica Hahn (Brooke Smith) and her lesbian love storyline. There was much backlash and gossip regarding the unfair decision to give Erica the boot because people and network execurives seemed “uncomfortable” with her same sex relationship. The news leaked that she was getting the ax right before the episode aired. So how did they do it? More details after the jump. Keep reading »
In his election night speech, President-elect Barack Obama told his daughters they had earned a puppy, and speculation over what type of dog the family should get began. Michelle has said they will be getting a shelter dog, but with Malia’s allergies, it needs to be hypoallergenic one.
No matter where the Obamas’ dog comes from — the pound or a breeder — it has to be photogenic, for sure. We bet your dogs are awfully attractive, so we want you to send canine photos and videos to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with the reason your dog would be the perfect presidential pet. Next week, we’ll post the cutest dogs and award one the title of First Dog.
UPDATE: Barack Obama responded to the question at a press conference today… Keep reading »

One of the biggest defenses used by people who are not in favor of gay marriage — even from those who don’t oppose civil unions or other gay rights issues — is that marriage is an institution that’s founded on connecting mothers and fathers to their children. Writes Jennifer Roback Morse for the National Review, in her article “8 Is Not Hate”:
“I view marriage as a gender-based institution that attaches mothers and fathers to each other and to their children. Those of us who support Proposition 8 believe that children deserve at least the chance to have a relationship with a mom and a dad. That isn’t hateful toward anyone.”
Righty-o! Using “the children” as a shield for bigotry seems like shifty parenting to me, but whatevs. When the divorce rate is at 50% in this country, marriage is already under attack — by straight people! Keep reading »
