!! OMG, Bigot Special: Queer protesters take Target by storm !!


Now this is my kind of activism! In punishment for Target’s pokerfaced financial support of evil secessionist homophobes, a bunch of wacky queer radicals by the name of Queer Rising rampaged through the cheery red and white superstore handing out cheeky coupons and repeatedly making the following announcement on a secret intercom thingy:

Good afternoon Target shoppers. When shopping at Target, know that your money is fueling hate and discrimination. Today’s bigot special is two ply toilet paper. Because when you’re so full of shit like Target is, you need something to wipe the shame with. Have a great day and thank you for not shopping at Target.

As someone who for years knew the boredom of working at a big corporate retail box, (the Gap!) I can tell you for sure that this was the most fun these Target employees have had in months. I especially enjoy watching the managers get all worked into a dull-eyed lather.
And while the cries of homophobia are in my opinion somewhat overblown– because huge corporations would probably give money to Nazis if they thought it would score them a tax break– I think it’s great anytime any big company gets even the tiniest comeuppance for their shameless manipulation of the political system.
Also this is just funny. So yay!

!! OMG, Just Because: Out of This World’s Evie covers Belinda Carlisle !!


Do you remember the show Out of This World? To refresh your memory, it was a syndicated sitcom, airing from 1987-1991, about girl named Evie who happens to be half-alien and half-earthling 80’s teen. She communicates with her alien father via a funny little cube that she keeps on her bedside table, and has “Out of This World” powers, most notably being able to freeze time by holding her index fingers about a centimeter apart. I used to be obsessed with this show, mostly because it was syndicated and only aired at really weird times on really weird channels that barely seemed like they existed. You never really knew when it was going to be on; basically you had to get lucky and stumble across it at 4 in the afternoon on a Sunday or something. But then you’d try to watch it again at 4 in the afternoon the following Sunday and it would have been replaced by Women’s Wrestling or lizards playing guitars and it was like it never existed. I don’t think it was ever that great of a show, but it always felt very special when you managed to find it– like the El Dorado of trashy television.
Anyway, that’s why I was both delighted and a little sad to discover the wealth of Out of this World clips on YouTube, including my favorite one, above, in which Evie inexplicably gives a rousing performance of Leave the Light by Belinda Carlisle. Girl should have frozen time and gotten some more dancing lessons! (Love the fringed gloves though.)

!! OMG, Hurry Up: California Gay Marriage Now Temporarily Legal! (In a few days.) !!

californiamarriage.jpg
Gay brides in California lace up your Nikes and get ready to race over to the chapel to put a ring on it! Judgey Godmother Vaughn Walker has taken out his sparkly gavel and banged out a big pink DENIAL on the motion to stay his judgment. Which means that starting August 18, you’ll be allowed to get married in California again. Of course, this will probably last all of two seconds before you can’t again, so try to be the first one in line, okay?
