!! OMG, fight for your rights: Madonna shares the stage with Pussy Riot for Amnesty International Human Rights Concert !!

Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, right, and Maria Alyokhina, center, of Pussy Riot appeared Wednesday at Amesty International‘s concert for human rights at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
The pair were introduced by key supporter, Madonna, who said she wanted to thank the two women “for making pussy a ‘sayable’ word in my household. Now, my 8-year-olds say it all the time.” Classy! Madonna also talked about the death threats she received during her Russian tour, while Pussy Riot were on trial.

“Eighty-seven of my fans were arrested for gay behavior — whatever that is,” she said.

Nadezhda and Maria chose to speak in Russian with aggression and passion. A translator related the women’s speech.

“Freedom is not a given,” she translated. “It is something we have to fight for every day. It is our duty to speak for those who are still behind bars.”

Others involved in the night included Blondie‘s Deborah Harry who performed, Yoko Ono, who spoke, and Susan Sarandon, who was the evening’s co-host.

!! OMG, time to break out the kilts and the bagpipes! Scotland becomes 17th country to approve same-sex marriage !!

Big-ups and a big congrats to Scotland who became the 17th country to approve same-sex marriage yesterday! Very exciting news.

“Today will be remembered in history as the day that lesbian, gay and bisexual people were finally granted full legal equality in Scotland, and given an equal right to marry the person they love,” said Tom French, Policy Coordinator for the Equality Network, a Scottish LGBT advocacy group.
“This is a profoundly emotional moment for many people who grew up in a country where being gay was still a criminal offense until 1980. Scotland can be proud that we now have one of the most progressive equal marriage bills in the world, and that we’ve sent out a strong message about the kind of country we are,” said French.

Now that I think about it, the kilt was kind of made for the gay wedding!

!! OMG, the times, they are a changin’: The Disney Channel’s ‘Good Luck Charlie’ Debuts Episode That Features 2 Lesbian Moms !!

Sunday’s episode of The Disney Channel‘s “Good Luck Charlie” emphasized a diverse addition to the neighbourhood. The episode, “Taylor Has Two Moms” features a pair of lesbian moms and according to TheBlaze:

A Disney Channel spokesperson told the publication that the episode was “developed to be relevant to kids and families around the world and to reflect themes of diversity and inclusiveness.”
When Amy told Bob that Taylor’s parents would also be joining them while the girls played, the two began debating Taylor’s mother’s name. Both said they had individually met the woman, but while Amy said her name was Susan, Bob remembered meeting a parent named Cheryl.
Since they weren’t together at the time of the interactions, the two remained at odds.
When the doorbell finally rang and Taylor arrived with her mothers, Charlie’s parents realized that they were both right: Susan and Bob were, indeed, speaking about two separate women.
“Taylor has two moms,” Bob said after answering the door.
“Nothing gets past you, Bob,” Amy said.

Of course, One Million Moms (AKA One Million Muffin Tops), the same group who famously stage a failed boycott against JC Penney after they chose Ellen as their spokesperson — are pissed about this! They’re already making a stink about the couple appearing on the show and say:

“Just because something may be legal or because some are choosing a lifestyle doesn’t make it morally correct. Disney should stick to entertaining instead of pushing an agenda. Disney decided to be politically correct versus providing family-friendly programming.”

We think this is awesome and a total step in the right direction! A great example of acceptance to set for such young viewers! Nice one, Disney! Check out the clip below:

!! OMG, dat chew Camilla?: Transvestite Artist Grayson Perry honoured by Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace !!


“The idea that rebellion is at the margins of society – that’s false, it’s far more interesting to be mischievous from the centre.” – Grayson Perry

Turner Prize-winning artist, Grayson Perry, known for his ceramic vases and cross-dressing (those two always go hand-in-hand), was honoured by Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace this past week for “30 years of hard graft” (that means 30 years of hard work in British speak, y’all!).
Perry worked a very Camilla Parker Bowles-esque look in a midnight blue dress and matching fitted jacket with a wide brimmed black-hat with some ostrich feathers for flare! Perry himself called the outfit very “Italian mother-of-the-bride”.

!! OMG, life’s a game: HabitRPG !!

If you ask anyone who has spent countless hours leveling up and doing side quests in RPG games like Final Fantasy and World of Warcraft whether the time was well-spent, at best you would probably get a shrug of the shoulders. The impulse to play these games is often so embedded that the only conscious decision RPG gamers really get to make is when to stop.
What if you could channel your RPG compulsion into organizing something other than your character’s equipment and stats? HabitRPG has set out to apply everything you love about these games (leveling, quests, character building, character classes, pets, guilds, boss fights, etc.) to real life. Gain experience for positive tasks like exercising or finishing a work project. Lose health for bad habits like eating too much pizza.
People are using HabitRPG to quit smoking, be more creative, exercise more, call their mom more often, and generally be better. Give it a try and level up your real self a bit.
