!! OMG, get it: Miss New York for gay rights !!

The last time a pageant queen took to the stage for gay rights, she was Miss New York and she wasn’t real. Oh, you remember — the character in Miss Congeniality who declared her lesbian love onstage in front of the entire audience.
Come Jan. 15, a real Miss New York will make her case for LGBT equality, the first contestant to do so in the pageant’s 90-year history. Claire Buffie says she’s fighting for her Straight for Equality: Let’s Talk platform because her gay sister and gay friends are “people that I care about so much and that I never want to see treated as second-class citizens.” Meanwhile, who’s that tall cutie in the middle?

!! OMG, social: Facebook for military gays !!

It’s hard to remember the early days when Facebook only had 50 members. Was there even a poke feature?! With the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell nearing implementation, a new social networking site for gays in the military is now in its infancy. Reuters reported that Out Military currently has 53 users, but membership is expected to increase as DADT becomes obsolete.
The site allows gay service members to be as out or anonymous as they choose and includes pages for events, news and videos. The hottest topic currently being discussed on the site is when and how to come out. And after users find that answer, the biggest question will be: sexy fatigues profile picture or sexy uniform profile picture?

!! OMG, sinful: International Draw Jesus Day !!

sexy_jesus.jpg
Mmmm, Jesus, have you been working out? It’s a good thing he’s got perma-abs, because on Dec. 26, Jesus will be posing for countless contributions to International Draw Jesus Day. The team at Hyperallergic — an art blogazine — devised the event in response to the Smithsonian’s much-publicized removal of David Wojnarowicz‘s video from its Hide/Seek exhibit earlier this month.
The video shows insects crawling over a crucifix, which the Republican party found offensive and pressured the institute to remove. But don’t just stop at bugs for Jesus’ big portrait. Hyperallergic says, “Bring it artists, we will show whatever you send us and NSFW is perfectly fine. Forget the people who want to censor our lives and art and long live freedom of expression!”

!! OMG, worse than Fox News? The BBC !!


Activist blogger Jody McIntyre was recently pulled from his wheelchair (he suffers from cerebral palsy) and dragged through the streets by police officers while protesting tuition fee hikes in London.
Watch him totally own this overtly-biased douchebag BBC anchor in the interview segment above. The BBC should be embarrassed to employ a man like this. He actually asks Jody, who requires assistance to even move his wheelchair, whether he was “throwing things” at the police. (Thanks to Peter for the tip)

!! OMG, how scary: Abstinence lessons !!


Listen to these cute animated bears give you a frightening reminder of things that are actually being taught to American children in classrooms as we speak. Abstinence-only lessons shouldn’t be allowed, plain and simple. This isn’t education: It’s psychologically damaging, and physically dangerous as children learn to feel guilty about using contraception.
Take action here to end all funding for abstinence-only programs. (Thanks Christian!)
