Some Clergy Refuse To Sign Straight Couples’ Marriage Certificates

If gays can’t marry, no one will. That’s the point of view of some clergy in the Refuse To Sign movement, who believe that gay marriage should be legal everywhere, but individual churches should be allowed to choose whether or not to perform the unions.

While some clergy won’t perform any weddings or sign marriage certificates to straight couples, other clergy members will still announce, “I now pronounce you husband and wife” but will request the straight couples have a judge sign their marriage certificates instead. Keep reading »

The It Sunglasses For Summer 2009

Keep the paparazzi away — or you know, avoid running into certain people on the street — with these chic, vintage-style Balenciaga sunglasses. The design was inspired by Cristobal’s archived sketches from the 1960s, the oversized panels are right on trend, and the gradating color makes them like, beyond. They’re available in lots of color combinations, but my fave is this orange, purple and grey combo, (oooh wait I also love the red, fuchsia, and brown!). The subtle yet poppy look makes them so perfect for summer, and they’ll totally work well into fall. Find them online for $330 at Balenciaga.

Hands-On “Sex Academy” In Berlin

People looking to set off fireworks with a new sex technique and those who might have missed out on sex ed when they were younger can get a refresher course at the “Amora Sex Academy,” an interactive exhibition that recently opened in Berlin.

When one female model’s G-spot is accurately located, she lights up and shrieks, “That’s it!” Keep reading »

Crave: In God We Trust Best F**king Friends Necklace

There are several different types of love. There’s the sweet, calm love you feel for a pet, or the fire-in-your-pants love you feel for a romantic interest. And of course there’s friend love, which can sometimes be so consuming that the only way to express it is in a slightly aggro, clench-jawed way that says, “I love you, man. Okay? I f***in’ love you. There. I said it.” If that’s how you feel about your bestie, check out these cracked heart Best Friends necklaces by In God We Trust, which bring back the old-school charm without the sugarcoat. Now all you need to do is get drunk together, have a heart-to-heart, and hug it out. [$220 for set of two, Refinery29Shops.com] Keep reading »

Critic Says Emma Watson Is Too Pretty To Play Hermione In “Harry Potter”

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” will hit theaters this Wednesday, July 15, and we can barely contain our excitement. We haven’t seen the film yet, but New York magazine reviewed it, saying some pretty nice things. One aspect that writer David Edelstein took issue with was how good-looking Emma Watson has become. While he says all three main protagonists have all grown up and matured, Edelstein doesn’t think Emma fits as Hermione anymore — she’s not nerdy and awkward enough. Keep reading »

Ryan Reynolds Becomes Our “Green Lantern” In A World Of Darkness

I know it seems futile to get excited about a movie opening two years from now. But Ryan Reynolds has been given the part of DC comics hero “Green Lantern” (not to be confused with “Green Hornet” starring Seth Rogen) over Bradley Cooper, Jared Leto, and Justin Timberlake. The character the Green Lantern is a test pilot who’s gifted a “power ring and battery lantern” by a dying alien, and is left to fight crime in the alien’s stead. The casting took forever because the director and producers each had their own favorite. Thank goodness Ryan won, ’cause that boy is gorgeous sans shirt. Sure, we have to wait 734 days to see him (fingers crossed) half-nakedly beating up bad guys, but a girl can still get excited, can’t she? [TheMoneyTimes] Keep reading »

Viewing The Burqa Through The Lens Of Fashion Week

The debate over burqas in France continues, and this time, it’s within the context of Paris Fashion Week. It’s been a few months since President Nicolas Sarkozy has made it clear that “burqas are not welcome,” and that he may move to ban them from the country. Yet when the couture shows began opening this year, contradictions came to light when some designers, like Adam Jones, showcased haute couture abayas and burqas. The idea of the burqa being a fashion item hasn’t been considered in the debate, which takes a more political stance. But apparently, there is a demand for such items, and France is one of the prime exporter of such designer headgear. Another couturier, Stephane Rolland said, “If someone tells me, ‘design an abaya,’ why not, I’m proud of that. It’s just a garment.” Just a garment might be a light way of putting things, but it does put the product in perspective as a commodity, exemplified by the existing boutiques that sell large quantities of high-fashion head scarves.
