“Don’t be a dick”? Sometimes we need to…



I have no idea what Bad Astronomer Phil Plait said at TAM 8, I was not there, in fact I am on the other side of the world right now. But the news I got is that Phil was trying to put forward the position that being overtly aggressive when addressing any kind of wrongly… Continue

Please Support Marriage Equality in CA

While the battle to overturn Proposition 8 in California rages, Pres. Obama has remained silent on this obvious violation of human rights. His voice could hold tremendous sway in tipping the balance in our favor so it is of the utmost importance that we make our voices heard and demand true change. Please sign this petition, it will be delivered directly to the White House with all of your signatures. Even if you don't believe in internet petitions, it can't hurt to add your name.

Thank… Continue

Maine, Marriage Equality, and Lessons

Several friends and a number of my YouTube subscribers have asked me to weigh in on the electoral success of Proposition 1 in Maine, which repealed a statute enacted by the Maine legislature and signed into law by its governor that extended the legal right to marry to same-sex couples in the state. 53% voted to repeal the statute, 47% voted to retain it – a result similar to the 2008 vote for Proposition 8 in California (52% in favor, 48% against), but well short of the trouncing same-sex… Continue

Why is homosexuality considered immoral?

You’ve heard it before, didn’t you? Homosexuality is considered immoral, awful and the biggest sin ever. All gay people are instantaneously condemned to hell. News of violence towards gays is seen every day and homophobia is almost a job description for some people. California prohibited future same-sex marriages and only nine countries on this planet allow them at all. And if that is not enough, we often hear that homosexuality is a disease…



I support gay people. Why would they be… Continue

The Hypocrisy of Prop 8

I was just thinking today about Prop 8. I'm in Iowa but I was raised in Southern California. I was bewildered. I live in a state where gay marriage has been ok'd, by courts, mind you, not the people. Oh no! The people of Iowa are mostly furious. Or should I say, the RELIGIOUS people of Iowa are furious. What a crock of… Continue

Today, I am ashamed to be a Californian. Tomorrow, I get even.



Today, I am ashamed to be a Californian.

Today, our courts did not have the bravery to ensure equality for all citizens.

Today, the court made me complacent in a crime to which we will be held accountable by the next generation.

Today, the California Supreme Court returned the institution of marriage back to its stone-aged meaning, turning straight women into heifers.

Today, the court tore apart all Californian’s First… Continue

Figured I'd might as well continue my recent trend of posting articles about the fight for equal rights for gay couples in the United States. Well, it's time to update the tally - 4 down, 46 to go.
