!! OMG, “my family is just as real as yours:” Zach Wahls’ DNC speech !!


Zach Wahls — the Iowan who made his two mothers proud in January 2011 by addressing a public hearing against a proposed constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage — is going to make someone a very good husband someday. Any of the eligible bachelorettes watching last night as he delivered a speech at the Democratic National Convention certainly agree.

!! OMG, when hot guys speak, we listen: David Pocock on marriage equality !!

“The biggest thing in this debate is that we’re dealing with people here. And how can you blame someone for what they are? People don’t choose their sexuality and we marginalize the LGBTI community for what they are. I think that this is a conversation that needs to be had and that needs to be discussed compassionately and actually come to something that’s reasonable. And in my mind, that’s marriage for everyone. We’ve moved forward on so many issues and this is the next progression.”

— Australian rugby player David Pocock (oh, what a name) speaking out on marriage equality in response to the views of Minister of Parliament John Alexander

!! OMG, “a fight for all of our rights”: Hugh Hefner on gay marriage !!

“The fight for gay marriage is, in reality, a fight for all of our rights. Without it, we will turn back the sexual revolution and return to an earlier, puritanical time. Today, in every instance of sexual rights falling under attack, you’ll find legislation forced into place by people who practice discrimination disguised as religious freedom. Their goal is to dehumanize everyone’s sexuality and reduce us to using sex for the sole purpose of perpetuating our species. To that end, they will criminalize your entire sex life.”

!! OMG, no, not from IKEA: Two Swedes reinvent the helmet !!

This is one of those moments when you realize you’re looking at the future. Anna Haupt and Terese Alstin are the two Swedish design students who invited Hovding (the Swedish word for chiefdom), which is an inflatable helmet worn around the neck. And while it’s only in development as a bike helmet now, the implications for this kind of technology are exponential. Not bad news for Haupt and Alstin’s bank accounts. Or as their professor put it, “You’re going to be millionaires.” Check out the video below for more.

(Thanks, Kevin!)
