KISS-IN: The Utah-based Mormon Church’s vigorous, well-heeled support for Proposition 8 has sparked nationwide annoyance and frustration towards the Mormons from the gays, culminating in a Nationwide Kiss-in this Saturday — a grassroots project organized by two gay bloggers with a lot of feelings about equality. Team Autostraddle missed the NYC Kiss-In because we were in the park eating french fries from a giant paper sack with our interns, but there’s already so many cute photos.
Despite all the nationwide kissing, gays are sill not allowed to get married.
However, the Associated Press reports that the Mormon church’s fight against gay marriage and support of Prop 8 has put it add odds with many of its own members.
You already know how Autostraddle feels about the Mormons.
[This will be an evolving daily fix … more links will be added Sunday afternoon! and the autostraddler and NSFW Sunday and etc!]
LEXAPRO FIXES EVERYTHING: You’re All Crazy, says new UCLA Study: 48.5% of queers sought mental health treatment, opposed to just 22.5 percent of heteros. (@queerty) That’s ’cause gays: have feelings, get sent to ex-gay therapy, are bullied/ostracized by their peers/communities, have no one to talk to their feelings about and are all totally crazy.

NOSTALGIA: The August of Our Nostalgia:“We are swimming in an August of nostalgia: Woodstock is being celebrated yet again during its 40th anniversary, and G.I. Joe is currently kicking the shit out of someone or blowing something up or some such at the movie theater.” (@jezebel)
ROSIE: We love ohnotheydidnt’s weekly compilations of the best of Ask Ro. Like this one:
BRITNEY: Some people think Britney doesn’t deserve a prestigious MTV VMA Award this year for “her one and only music video this year, Womanizer, in which she suggestively caresses her seemingly naked body, photocopies her bottom after stomping around a corporate office in a black wig and gets raunchy in the back of a car in her secret-service inspired get-up.” (@fox)
ART: Masculinities: photos of men talking about how they feel about being men and actually it’s kinda fascinating/cool. (@chadstates)
GLEE: New GLEE Promo!(@ohnotheydidnt)
Grant Stoddard did it for science: he had sex with himself! He made a mold of his penis, turned said mold into a dildo, bent over and took it from his girlfriend: “Now, there’s no delicate way to put this, so I’m just going to come out and say it. Taking a foreign object in your ass is like shitting in rewind.” (@nerve.com)
Some of us are morning people, but some of us need more than an alarm clock to get us out of bed. For those of us who are difficult to rouse, red hot lesbian action always does the trick. (@fleshbot)
