California just legalized gay marriage, but they might need to explicitly legalize gay slogan t-shirts too. Lapriss Gilbert, 31, was booted from the Social Security office in Van Nuys by a security guard who claimed he wasn’t allowed to let her in the government building because of her “Lesbian.com” t-shirt. Gilbert, who was simply there to pick up her son’s card, was threatened with arrest if she didn’t leave the premises. While Gilbert may have walked away quietly, she is speaking up for herself! “As an African-American and a lesbian, I haven’t been through one day without facing some sort of discrimination … but this is just shocking,” she told reporters. So, after the incident, she immediately did what any woman would do — she called her mom. Tanya Gilbert, a long time gay rights activist, got so upset by her daughter’s story, she immediately phoned in the LAPD on the “rent-a-cop” guard from the private company, Paragon, hired by Homeland Security. Luckily, before the four city police officers and a federal agent arrived, a fellow Paragon security guard saw the error of their ways and the officer escorted Lapriss Gilbert in. Even the ACLU is surprised — Peter Eliasberg, an attorney for the organization, said, “I haven’t seen this type of blatant discrimination in a federal office building before.” Guess that’s the good news. But the Gilberts are planning on filing a lawsuit against Paragon Security for their discrimination so this doesn’t ever happen again. [Daily News]

In the latest issue of Out magazine, Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz admitted to making out with dudes as “sexual rebellion”, but we’re not buying the rebel without a cause routine. We blame it on his low self-esteem: Wentz claims he doesn’t even like his own genital junk (a classic sign that he’s afraid to go gay). When asked if he’s gone down on a dude, he said he wasn’t interested because, “It’s really about the equipment. I really don’t think it’s an attractive quality. That’s what it comes down to. I don’t even like my own. Like, I really don’t like it. I don’t like anything about it.” So sad. If only some guy could wave his magic wand and finally make Wentz d*ckmatized.

We’ve all heard sexuality is a spectrum and that there is a sliding scale of gay and straight. While this has been the accepted perception, new evidence has come out that all women are gay. According to Dr. Meredith Chivers’ documentary entitled Bi the Way (trailer is above), pictures of naked men do nothing for the blood flow to women’s crotches. While we could argue with that those kinds of photos inspire the manual stimulation that gets the blood flowing, Dr. Chivers found that just the sight of naked chicks in action worked on both straight men and women. This may explain the glut of girl-on-girl action from college co-eds on LastNightsParty.com to Angelina Jolie and Clint Eastwood’s wife. Faux-lesbos are for real! [New York Times] Keep reading »
They’re here, they’re queer, and even the Govenator won’t stop them! In a landmark ruling for gay rights, the California Supreme Court has just overturned the Defense of Marriage Act, which prevented homosexuals from being able to legally marry their partners. Back in 2004, following Massachusetts’ lead, San Francisco allowed gays to wed and gave the first license to a couple of 80-year old women who had been together for 50 years. (Aww, old people in love are so cute!) However, after a month of being barraged by happy same sex pairs, the court stopped letting gays make it legal when voters seemed against it. So, the City of San Francisco along with a dozen gay activist groups sued the State of California and today, finally, they successfully sealed the deal to allow same sex marriage! Hooray! [MSNBC]

Soap operas love drama with a cheesy soundtrack, but unfortunately, thereâ€™s a small chorus of haters for As The World Turns. This season the show has broken ground with their two new characters, Luke and Noah, a committed gay couple. Okay, so theyâ€™ve kissed three times on screen and theyâ€™re already moving in together, but theyâ€™re so cuteâ€¦and so controversial. The American Family Association wants people to protest all Proctor & Gamble products (Tide, Crest, and Pampers are among them) because they say the company, which produces ATWT, “promotes the homosexual agenda”. To see where America really stands, P&G, who included the gay love story on the show in an effort to show diversity, has set up a hotline. If you want to see more of these two hunks kissing, you can call the number to support Luke & Noah. You donâ€™t have to give your name or any information, just a push of a button so they can keep pushing each otherâ€™s.
