American Idiot? Comments (0)

Raven

Raven-Symoné tells Oprah she's tired of being labeled as gay...or even as African-American. She's cool with being labeled an American, though.

No word on if she is fine being labeled a woman and/or a human being.

It's nice to think we have the power to live outside our societal labels, but we do not. Until it was legal, she would have been disallowed from marrying her female partner because they are gay. In many places in the country, her blackness could lead her into a lot of situations my whiteness would not. The list goes on.

I think it comes off as arrogant, like when white people claim to be color-blind. Maybe it's coming from a good place, but maybe it's also coming from a very sheltered place, a place most people never get close enough to in order to be able to make the same proclamations.

 
Marriage Equality Comes To 5 More States Comments (0)

Gay-panic-defense-0013587749865

In denying to review seven cases, the Supreme Court just brought marriage equality to Virginia, Indiana, Wisconsin, Oklahoma and Utah.

Gotta love that some of those states are among the last one would ever have expected to have marriage equality:

“It also will bring along six other states located in the judicial circuits overseen by those appellate courts: North Carolina, South Carolina, West Virginia, Colorado, Kansas and Wyoming. The action will bring to 30 the number of states where gays and lesbians can marry. Appeals courts in Cincinnati and San Francisco are considering cases that could expand that number further, presuming the Supreme Court remains outside the legal fray.”

Good luck stopping marriage equality, Neanderthals.

Carl-demaio

Carl DeMaio, a ridiculously sleazy politician who may or may not have faked a break-in at his campaign HQ to garner sympathy, is nonetheless tied in his race to represent a district in San Diego in the House. It's incredible to me that such a non-credible candidate could poll this well, even if it actually represents a big drop from the 7% lead he had three months ago.

Wake up and smell the gay Tea Partier, San Diego.

All Or Nothing: DEADLINE's Cynical Beverly Hills Hotel Boycott Take-Down Targets The Wrong Enemy Comments (0)

Sultan-of-bruneiThe Sultan of Brunei is far right...literally and figuratively.

Daphne Richards, once a full-time manager at Chik-fil-A, was demoted and took a pay cut after a leave for a double mastectomy. The company defended its decision by saying they actually punished her for “poor performance and out of concern she wouldn't be able to handle the work load.”

Maybe not necessarily in that order, huh?

So if you didn't already hate patronizing Chik-fil-A for its corporate anti-gay stance or its ultra-conservative deference to the Bible, you might be forgiven if you decided not to eat there after hearing about this unfair action.

But you wouldn't be forgiven by Deadline. According to the popular movie-biz site, you'd just be a wide-eyed optimist at best or a hypocritical “shillbilly” at worst if you boycotted Chik-fil-A but still ate at a restaurant that has also potentially or demonstrably done something with which you disagree: Deadline has taken the stance that boycotting the Beverly Hills Hotel due to its ownership by the Sultan of Brunei—who has announced the death penalty for homosexuality in his country beginning in 2016—is logically indefensible, and rather than stopping there, an article on the site goes on to personally attack some of the boycott's most high-profile proponents as hypocrites.

OsbourneThe Osbournes do Dubai

In the piece by David L. Robb, entitled “Beverly Shillbillies: Hollywood Hypocrites Shun Hotels While Hawking Wares To Rights Abusers,” a laundry list of instances is provided to show how some of the famous faces involved in the boycott of the hotel are happily doing business with other, similarly despicable entities:
