Legalizing Gay Sex Makes Alabamans “Less Protected” From Sexual Assault, Claims Attorney General

gay-flag-rainbow

This week, Alabama shook off a long overdue, ridiculous law criminalizing oral and anal sex between unmarried partners. The anti-sodomy law was mostly used to criminalize homosexual behavior, even between consenting unmarried partners (I probably don’t need to tell you gay marriage is not legal in AL). An appeals court overturned the law, citing the Supreme Court’s 2003 Lawrence vs. Texas decision that found criminalizing same-sex behavior was unconstitutional.

Now Alabama’s Attorney General (and owner of a perfect movie villain name) Luther Strange wants the appeals court to reconsider — and he may kinda, sorta have a point. Bear with me … Keep reading »

Welcome to the 21st century, Alabama!

On Friday, an appeals court in the state overturned the anti-sodomy law, which criminalized consensual oral and anal sex between unmarried partners. The great state of AL punished “any act of sexual gratification between persons not married to each other involving the sex organs of one and the mouth or anus of another” with a year in prison or hard labor or up to a $2,000 fine. The law was meant to harass and intimidate gays in particular — I mean, you know they weren’t going after teen boys getting BJs from their girlfriends in the backseat of their pickup trucks.  Keep reading »

The Texas Republican Convention recently endorsed in its platform so-called “gay reparative therapy,” widely considered to be junk science by the medical community. While speaking in San Francisco last night, Texas Governor Rick Perry, a Republican, is doubling down on statements that being gay is a “lifestyle choice” and compared being actively gay to being an alcoholic.

It’s not the most batshit crazy comparison to make, actually, but it is predicated on the batshit crazy belief that homosexuality is something a person should just, like, suppress Keep reading »

Why Being Gay Makes Me Appreciate Women

Being a gay man does not make me feel less manly or more feminine. All it does it make me more appreciative of what it means to be a woman in our society.

Granted, I have three very important women in my life — my ex-wife and two daughters — who provide me with a road map for understanding women and appreciating the connection that women and gay men share. But ever since I came out as a gay man, I discovered I had more in common with women than I ever thought possible and my respect for women has intensified. Read more on Your Tango…

Straight People Need To See More Gay Kisses

Michael Sam Becomes The First Out Gay Player Drafted By The NFL, Kisses Boyfriend Live On ESPN

There was a distinct outpouring of disgust when Michael Sam kissed his boyfriend after being drafted on Saturday night. Some of it was just outright bigotry, but Mark Joseph Stern at Slate was interested to see many people saying they supported Sam in theory, but were nonetheless uncomfortable with the display. “Is it possible to support gay rights, but still be grossed out by gay people?” Stern asks.
