!! OMG, How Precocious: 10-year-old sits for gay marriage !!


Arkansan schoolboy Will Phillips explains why he won’t stand for the pledge of allegiance– and why he told his substitute teacher to go jump off a bridge. OMG readers, control yourselves with the marriage proposals. I know he’s a hero, but he’s only ten.
(Thanks to former OMG maestro Graydon for the tip!)

!! OMG, sabre-tooth tigers are the new cougars! !!


Although I’m completely sick of hearing about “Cougars,” the world’s fakest and most annoying trend, I am quite intrigued at the notion of Sabre-tooth Tigers. They’re cougars, but, you know, older. And what octogenarian could be more sexually desirable than the luscious Cloris Leachman? I have wanted this woman to teach me The Facts of Life ever since she played Mrs. Garrett’s hot-to-trot sister (?) Beverly Ann Stickle. Dear Cloris: let’s get in over our heads!

!! OMG, How Fabulous: Super Xuxa !!

Hey, remember XUXA, the star of the eponymous and totally weird Brazilian children’s show? Obvs! Who doesn’t! But did you know she was also the star of Super Xuxa, the most popular movie in Brazil for several years!? I don’t know about you, but after watching these clips, I’m ready for a sequel.
See Xuxa frolicking with a pink dolphin after the jump.
Via Everything is Terrible.

[[ OMG, there’s more: JUMP IN to read the rest ]]

!! OMG, How Generous: Bea Arthur !!


I knew there was a reason to love Dorothy Zbornak besides her colorful choice of outfits and husky-voiced joie de vivre. The Golden Girls matriarch, who passed away earlier this year, was also a friend of gay teenagers:

Bea Arthur, the former Golden Girls star who died earlier this year, has left $300,000 to a shelter for gay homeless teenagers.

For years, she had been a generous benefactor to the Ali Forney Centre, which is a New York-based homeless LGBT charity.

Four years ago, the Tony Award-winning actress flew to New York for a benefit performance for the centre, raising more than $40,000. She told Next magazine the centre was saving lives.

The charity announced in August it would purchase a building with space for 12 teenagers and name it after her.

As if I could possibly love this woman more! Thank you for bein’ a friend.

!! OMG, finally: Federal hate crimes law !!

matthewshepard-portrait.jpg
Today President Obama will sign the Byrd-Shepard Hate Crimes Act into law, making it a federal offense to perpetrate violent acts based on bias against a group of people, including gays.

The act is named for Matthew Shepard, a young gay Wyoming man who was kidnapped, beaten, and left tied to a fence post in 1998, and James Byrd Jr., a black man who was dragged for three miles behind a pick-up truck in Texas the same year. Both men died from their injuries.
