  • Phone Makers Give Nod To "Kill Switch"

    After years of pleas from law enforcement, a coalition of the largest mobile handset makers in the world have agreed to install kill switches on devices manufactured after July 2015. The kill switch feature will allow the phone's owner to wipe all data and disable the phone.  Apple, Google, Samsung and Microsoft, along with the five biggest cellular carriers in the United States, are among those that have signed on to a voluntary program announced Tuesday by the industry's largest trade group. All smartphones manufactured for sale in the United States after July 2015 must have the technology, according to the program from CTIA-The Wireless Association. Advocates say the feature would deter thieves from taking mobile devices by rendering phones[…]

  • The Shopping Trip

    Tucked in the front pocket of my jeans was the list handwritten in purple ink, the color chosen specifically because it always made me feel better. A completely mundane list by anyone's standards -- the kind most shoppers entering Target that day might be carrying.But mine was different for a reason no one would have ever guessed, and only a few people -- mostly those who had walked in my shoes -- might truly understand. Toothpaste. Shampoo. Cat litter. Storage containers. Paper towels. Laundry detergent. The most basic of items, but in reality, five of these were decoys. Diversions in the form of innocuous sundries, to convince me this excursion was not out of the ordinary; that what I was[…]

  • Bloomberg To Spend $50M To Fight NRA

    Bloomberg To Spend $50M To Fight NRA Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has announced that he will spend $50M to back candidates that support gun control. Mr. Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York, said gun control advocates need to learn from the N.R.A. and punish those politicians who fail to support their agenda — even Democrats whose positions otherwise align with his own. “They say, ‘We don’t care. We’re going to go after you,’ ” he said of the N.R.A." ‘If you don’t vote with us we’re going to go after your kids and your grandkids and your great-grandkids. And we’re never going to stop.’" He added: “We’ve got to make them afraid of us.” The considerable advantages that gun rights advocates enjoy —[…]

He talked about the importance of dialogue and respect. And then he said there was no scientific evidence that homosexuality is not a choice. He reminded us that the hypocritical left, in silencing voices like his, is really the party guilty of intolerance.And that was our cue to leave.We stood, without a word, and walked out.

  • Louisiana votes to keep unconstitutional sodomy ban

    Louisiana votes to keep unconstitutional sodomy ban From Yahoo News:The Louisiana House of Representatives voted not to remove the state's sodomy ban today, even though it was declared unconstitutional by the U.S Supreme Court in 2003 and cannot be used to arrest people. The 66-27 vote was overwhelmingly against getting rid of the ban. The New Orleans Times-Picayune explains that a conservative religious lobbying group led the charge to keep the "crime against nature" law -- which, again, isn't even a real law anymore -- on the books, sending letters to all members of the House saying the unenforceable law is somehow protecting young people from sexual predators and public health risks."Louisiana's anti-sodomy statute is consistent with the values of Louisiana residents who consider this behavior to[…]

  • Linda Harvey Is Sick Of Talking About You

    Linda Harvey Is Sick Of Talking About You "Enough is enough. Have you noticed that the promotion of homosexuality seems to be almost everywhere you look these days? From movies and TV shows to commercials, mass-market paperback novels and even children’s media. As you’ve heard me say many times, the topic of sexual deviance has sadly permeated the climate of our public schools. The mainstream media breathlessly covers homosexual so-called rights as an issue way out of proportion to its relative importance. When the Supreme Court struck down portions of state and national marriage laws last summer, you’d think the first person had landed on Mars. Meanwhile, much more important issues like human trafficking, child abuse or the daily slaughter of unborn babies in this country get little[…]

  • Louisiana House Votes To Keep Unconstitutional Anti-Sodomy Law

    The Louisiana House voted 66-27 on Tuesday to keep the state's unconstitutional sodomy ban under Louisiana’s crimes against nature law.The Supreme Court's 2003 Lawrence v. Texas decision invalidated all state bans on gay sex, declaring them unconstitutional. But Louisiana, along with several other states, has refused to strike the provision from state law. On Tuesday, the House rejected a bill, sponsored by state Rep. Patricia Haynes Smith (D), that would have done just that.The statute that bans sodomy cannot be used as a cause for arrest, but Smith told The Times-Picayune that she introduced the legislation after East Baton Rouge Parish sheriffs' deputies arrested more than a dozen men suspected of “attempted crimes against nature.” "We want to be fair[…]

  • Monica Jones, Transgender Woman, Convicted Of 'Manifesting Prostitution'

    Apparently you can be arrested and convicted for "walking while trans" in some parts of the country.Monica Jones, a transgender woman and activist, was found guilty of "manifesting prostitution" by a Phoenix, Arizona judge on Friday following her arrest by undercover police officers in 2013. The kicker? Jones did not actually engage in prostitution the night of her arrest. Rather, she accepted a ride to a bar in her neighborhood by two undercover cops.Jones' conviction stems from a law defining prostitution as act or action that "manifests an intent to commit or solicit an act of prostitution" -- with the keyword being "intent." This ambiguity puts the power within the hands of the state, who can define intent within their[…]

  • The Real Story Of Piper And Alex From 'Orange Is The New Black' Will Surprise You

    The Real Story Of Piper And Alex From 'Orange Is The New Black' Will Surprise You Don't deny it, one of the best parts of "Orange Is the New Black" is the rising sexual tension and relationship drama between Piper and Alex.It was a huge moment in the Netflix series when the two exes finally hooked up in prison -- one, because everyone loves a lil romance, and two, because it's prison and that's just crazy. But apparently that storyline was a little too crazy to be real (we should've figured).Jenji Kohan's hit Netflix show may be based on the real life experiences of Piper Kerman, as told in her memoir, but that doesn't mean the show reflects what actually happened. In her first time talking to the press, Catherine Clearly Wolters, the real-life Alex Vause,[…]

  • Spring Queening!

    Ah, springtime, the season of pansies!After a long, cold, dark winter, spring is finally arriving. Mother Gaia warms, the birds chirp and I begin to panic about love handles. (I tried Adderall to lose weight, but that just made me eat more food, faster). I know springtime is here because the light of sunrise had begun to annoy me earlier than it has in months. Not being domesticated or skilled enough to hang blinds or curtains, I simply flung a navy blue sarong (purchased 25 pounds ago on Fire Island) over the window. It's held in place with a ream of typing paper resting on the top sill. (My DNA lacks the gay gene that imparts style and design skills;[…]
