Movie Bears’ Boycott Is Small Growl in Larger Gay Roar | NYT

Barbary Coast - Movie Bears’ Boycott Is Small Growl in Larger Gay Roar -
"The Bears are social, not political, and with a mailing list of 1,500 names can amass a jovial group of hundreds for a single screening. But when Alan Stock, the Cinemark chief executive, gave $9,999 before last year’s referendum election in support of stripping gay couples of the right to wed, the claws came out.

Since then, the members have adopted an ABC approach to moviegoing: Anywhere But Cinemark. Which explains why the Bears were at AMC Theaters to watch “Wild Things,” instead of across the street at the rival Century Theaters, which are owned by Cinemark."

If you're in San Francisco, please join the Bears and give them your support!

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."

Can we trust Rasmussen anymore?
