Today on Autostraddle: Reading is AUTOFUNDAMENTAL so Riese & Laneia are plowing through the lesbionic young adult cannon, recap style part two!!! Carly tackles a week of finales and surprises in her Tuesday Televisionary (my fave so far), and our Sunday Gay-Day piece rolls on, now with transcripts from all our interviews. Our video is in the top 100 (News & Politics) on YouTube!
+ A gay woman is attacked outside a Seattle club where Samantha Ronson was DJ’ing. Samantha is, quite understandably, not happy about this at all: “It’s 2009 people, why are we still fighting each other?” (@ohnotheydidnt)
+Did you watch GLEE last night? Did you LOVE IT? I actually maybe liked the preview just as much as the show itself, but regardless I’d rather watch Glee than anything else on the teevee, and they got me at the end with the Journey! Here’s 12 other TV musicals. You can watch Glee on Fox’s webpage. (@the daily beast)
+ Also, Jane Lynch‘s other show, Party Down, which we love, has been picked up for 10 more episodes.
+ Part two of the Judge Judy vs. Feminism also delivers. Really, this stuff is ace.

That’s not the way I used it. I apologized and put it behind me.” (@Yahoo Sports)

+ Nashville schools sued over gay-themed sites block: The American Civil Liberties Union sued Knox County and Nashville schools for blocking non-pornographic gay-oriented websites but allowing websites that condemn homosexuality and promote programs that aim to alter one’s sexuality to heterosexual.

+ Gender Identity Disorder: Has Accepted Practice Caused Harm?: “We got homosexuality out of the DSM because of protests at the APA, now it’s time to do the same with GID (Gender Identity Disorderswp_posts(@ Psychiatric Times)

+ Lady GaGa on Dancing with the Stars last night:
I don’t think this is breaking news, but Sky News ran an interesting article about how scientists believe they’ve finally discovered the missing link. It also mentions a 50-ft marine monster named ‘Predator X’, which is fascinating. I love evolution. You can read more here.
