What is the Gay Community? [jaysays]

What is the Gay Community? | jaysays.com |:
"One common thing that happens to most of us upon coming out is we lose the community we are part of – or at least lose the standing we had in that community. We fall a bit from the social ladder. Perhaps this is particularly true with white gay men who, until coming out, are at the top of the social food chain. But none of this tells me what the gay community is.

Is the gay community the club kids at the bars looking gorgeous and dancing until dawn? Is it the activists whose feet are swollen from walking the neighborhoods asking for people to consent to our marriages? Is it a singles’ group, a couples’ group, an HIV/AIDS prevention network, a circle jerk, a crafts store, a bookstore, a local church? No, those are all just aspects of the LGBTQ community."

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?
