(Link) A spokesperson for the ex-gay group claims "It's repugnant for a faith based institution, a Christian ministry to come under the regulation of the state." Treating the mentally ill and controlling access to their meds without being licensed to do so is also repugnant -- and illegal.
(Link) After all these years of smooching GOP hiney, the group's president finally gets his own slice of the pie -- right in the kisser before a live audience.

(Link) The American Family Association still considers Girls, Inc a "pro-abortion, pro-lesbian advocacy group", but doesn't fault Harriet Miers for having worked with the Dallas chapter. Just another case of "love the sinner, hate the social progress they attempt to spread."
(Link) While civil unions do offer same-sex couples many of the same state-level benefits as straights, Social Security and military pensions are not among them. Vermont's legislators are pushing Congress for equality on the federal-level.

(Link) Former fave of Christian fundie homeschoolers, a doll-making company is now underfire for donating to "a pro-abortion, pro-lesbian advocacy group." In other news, Barbie still okay for advocating eating disorders and shameless consumerism.

(Link) After "appearance", being queer or perceived as queer is the second most common reason kids harass each other. Would reporting that bullying to a teacher make a difference? Fifty-seven percent of the teens polled said they wouldn't even bother trying.
(Link) After 30 years of anti-gay recruiting and "no lesbians" policy, a student player finally demands some action be taken against the basketball coach. "Coach Portland’s behavior not only violates the school’s anti-discrimination policy, it is illegal."

(Link) Hoosier state toys with reserving medically-assisted parenthood for straight, married churchgoing women who've had their "lifestyle" examined by a team of reviewers. Irresponsible, abusive drug addicts still allowed to breed at will.

(Link) In order to appear "exclusive and special", some dating sites are banning queer members or those whose appearance doesn't match "certain standards of beauty". But others are coming up with equally snooty versions just for the LGBT crowd. Lucky us.
(Link) In the only US state that allows same-sex marriage, a law on the books since 1913 bars Massachusetts from issuing licenses to out-of-state couples. If overturned, it could allow couples to marry there, then return home to raise heck until they get equal rights in their home states.

(Link) Bush's latest pick for the big court is Harriet Miers, who's on the record as being pro on gay civil rights but against making same-sex nookie legal in the privacy of ones home (aka "Lawrence vs Texas"). She's also 60-ish, never married and has no kids. Could she be family? Let the speculation begin!

(Link) Blue Cross drops coverage for unmarried partners in "small group" plans and claims it's not discrimination, just "legal decisions." Others, like Montana's Human Rights Group -- whose employees were insured by Blue Cross, calls it "queer baiting."
