This documentary is the perfect way to fully educate Americans on one of the landmark political shifts of the 20th century.

The two women, Kris Perry and Sandra Stier, and the two men, Paul Katami and Jeff Zarrillo, endure experiences that would tear many marriages limb from limb as their quest to wed proceeds for over five years.

The universe gives us great news, Firefox lovers and LGBTQIA members and supporters: Brendan Eich, Mozilla CEO and gross homophobe, is stepping down from his position as chief executive after only two weeks. After his promotion, three board members and several employees quit because Eich donated $1,000 to Proposition 8, which dictates, “only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.” Even dating website, OkCupid, weighed in and released a pop-up letter to its Firefox users, urging these members to use another browser.

Prop 8, which made marriage in the state legal only between a man and a woman, was passed in California in 2008 by 52% of voters. Read More

That building would be the Catholic Church.
Rice was never exactly the follower the Catholic Church dreams of. She’s known primarily for either the seriously sexual Vampire Chronicles (the first of which was written the year Stephanie Meyer was born), or the seriously soporific Sleeping Beauty Trilogy (a BDSM series that never gets any more BDSMish than repetitive spankings). Then there’s also that series on witches in there somewhere. Read More
