...trouble with technology...

I was going to launch our new Ameriqueer tongue-in-cheek video news roundup today... except that every piece of technology I have is working against me. The entire thing is filmed, but I can't put it all together, and I think I caused a major error on my computer, which isn't too cool. So, I think I'm going to give up on this for tonight. The sketch turned out quite hilarious--although Michael Savage sounds a little too much like Russell Weiner (perhaps because they are both being voiced by the same artist). For that matter, the narrator and Janet Weiner sounds suspiciously like Mr. Gay and the guy that introduces the whole video...

Anyway, moral of the story is, I'm not getting paid for this, and as much as I love informing y'all and having fun with the news; my boyfriend is waiting patiently for me, and I need to go relax and live life a little!

That said, please enjoy my post earlier today about the Military Readiness Enhancement Act and ending Don't Ask Don't Tell. Also please read, comment on, and enjoy Jenny Suidan's afternoon Guest Post "Screaming Internal Activist."

Check out this post at Queerty and tell me what you think. Mine is comment #25. I bet you Bilerico and Change.org know how HRC feels today--check out the comments! Bil Browning's new pic is downright adorable, though! Glad he settled on a smiley one! Its a lot better than the dour one!

Do you think Bil Browning and the Bilerico Project staff sold out by accepting this peace offering from Rockstar? In my experience, once a company comes out for the gays, they rarely go back. Its a great first step--while we'd like to see them become bastions of LGBT progress, as long as Rockstar sticks to this track, we should be fine. Sure his father is a bigot, but my father listens to him, please don't judge me on a guilt-by-association basis, or else we're all screwed. It was totally one thing when he was doing nothing to differentiate his company from his father's bigotry, but now that he's distanced himself, we need to be fair. Speaking of fair, Bilerico and Change.org, along with all of the brave Facebook users that started the boycott, deserve our fair praise for sticking it out, despite lawsuit threats from Rockstar. Noone with a firm grip on reality can criticize how they've handled this whole thing.

I'm proud to have contributed to the Bilerico Project earlier this week, and I hope I get the chance to again soon! I think that the Bilerico bloggers--along with LawDork, Pam's House Blend, Joe.My.God, and Box Turtle Bulletin--are among the finest LGBT bloggers on the internet.

And now, time for bed. G'night Ameriqueers!

Chris Geidner: In Iowa, judges are ousted.

Via Chris Geidner's Poliglot blog at Metro Weekly:

"

In Iowa, which declared Iowa's marriage ban unconstitutional under the state's constitution in 2009, the National Organization for Marriage got one of its first electoral victories this year. The judicial retention elections appear to have resulted in the replacement of all three justices up for a vote this year.

Here, as of 3:35 a.m. and with 1767 out of 1774 precincts reporting, are the Iowa Secretary of State's election results:

Supreme Court Justice David L. Baker
Yes 443437 45.75%
No 525865 54.25%

Supreme Court Justice Michael J. Streit
Yes 442459 45.6%
No 527921 54.4%

Supreme Court Chief Justice Marsha Ternus
Yes 437118 44.99%
No 534486 55.01%

The court was unanimous in its 2009 ruling that Iowa's constitution required marriage equality."

HEY #p2!--CALLING ALL PROGRESSIVE ALLIES!

-HEY #p2! (Progressives).

We can't do this alone.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans have been fighting for over half a Century to have basic Civil Rights. We have so much to do, and we are such a small group. Without an army of Progressive allies, we can't win. Our rights as American citizens are constantly being compromised, despite life-time service to our nation as good, contributing citizens. We can't wait any longer. We need our Progressive allies to step up and go to bat for us TODAY.

We must demand Progressives have got to make LGBT rights a top priority in 2010, or we will keep being put on the back-burner.

There will ALWAYS be something more important than LGBT equality affecting America--issues like Health Care Reform and the Economy effect LGBT people too! However, when we are discriminated against under the law every single day, we can't give our all to fixing these problems. We are long overdue to be counted as equal citizens. That&#…

WHAT. THE. HELL? NEW HAMPSHIRE??? (and a prop 8 update)

Okay, first let me just say CALIFORNIA can breathe easy for a few more days as San Francisco mayor Gavin Newsome convinced the Supreme Court to hold of on releasing their decision on Prop 8 a few more days until the 30th anniversary of the White Night Riots is passed.  We're probably going to see it Tuesday, the following Thursday or THAT following Monday.  
NOW:  WHAT THE HELL, NEW HAMPSHIRE HOUSE?!?!?!?!???!?!?!?!????!
The NEW HAMPSHIRE House, which on May 6 APPROVED Marriage Equality by a vote of 178-167, has now stalled the REWRITTEN BY GOVERNOR JOHN LYNCH bill 188-186--That's right, folks, two votes.  25 members did not vote at all, and opponents of the bill failed to kill it in a 173-202 vote, but this STILL means we're waiting on NEW HAMPSHIRE to GET ITS SHIT TOGETHER!  The House passed a resolution to continue negotiating with the Senate by a vote of 207-168.  If that same number votes for the 're-re-renegotiated' bill in the next two weeks it will pass, but …
