GAY FAMILY INVASION: Gay Couples, A Close Look at This Modern Family, Parenting: Someone at The USA Today has seen the sitcom on the television about the gays with the gayby and has seen the light and realized the magic stone at the heart of the American dream: the homosexuals. She has even interviewed someone named Goldberg about it, there has been an official study proving that we are not monsters OR aliens! Let’s take a gander:
“Gay households have more in common than not with their heterosexual counterparts who are also raising kids, the research shows. “The sexual orientation of a parent has really little to do with their parenting,” Goldberg says.”
If you read the whole article you might be left with the impression that we are all very special snowflakes or monkeys, which is true! But you know, that’s fine actually. We should all talk to people simply about monkeys. Not everyone is an enlightened smug asshat like I am, reading the news every day as I do now, and so, bravo, USA Today, I am glad that you will be delivered to the ‘doormat’ of everyone at the Holiday Inn Express and sold at McDonalds and read all over the world. Let’s get this information out there, however we can.
Do you think it’s weird that the “LIFE” section of the USA Today is about movies and teevee shows? Like it’s not about LIFE at all. In our LIFE section you can make your own magnets. FYI. That’s real you can’t do that shit in the wild.
TAXICAB HOMOPHOBIA: A partnered gay couple was kicked out of a taxi –for hugging– en route home to East Harlem. According to one of the men (27 years old), the driver yelled: “You guys have to get out of the taxi! Hugging is not allowed in here!” (@nypost) [Sidenote; this never happened to me when I used to make out with my then-roommate in the backseat of taxi cabs to Brooklyn? SEXISM!]
BREASTS: A woman has invented a cupless bra designed for women who fear wrinkles between their breasts, by holding the chest in place while sleeping. The bra is being referred to as the “La Decollette Anti-Wrinkle Night Bra.” Is it weird that I kinda want one? (@dailyexpressuk)

SEX CRIMES: If you’ve ever seen To Catch a Predator or any of the other shows that catch people online into arranging to have sex with children, it’s probably crossed your mind that the line between entrapment and pre-medidated criminal behavior gets a little blurry. We forget this of course because who really has sympathy for anyone willing to entertain pedophilia, even if it wasn’t exactly their idea. Vanity Fair brings you both sides of one man’s story: “Both the policewoman and her target give the author their versions of the truth, in a case that challenges the conventional wisdom about online sexual predators, and blurs the lines among crime, “intent,” and enticement.”
Jezebel notes: “… law enforcement energy might be better spent elsewhere, and perhaps we as a society should redirect our attention to problems that actually harm actual children — not men who solicit made-up girls.
