It’s finally happened!

First Ireland, through kick-ass popular vote.

Now the US, through a Supreme Court decision.

May the rest of humanity soon follow suit.

Hell, yes--sing it, sister!

As someone who does not have a tv or cable service (by choice), I know very little about Ms Washington–but I know Karen is quite the fan. So it’s with great, great pleasure, that I post video of an absolutely amazing speech that she gave when she accepted the Vanguard Award as an ally at the #glaadawards:



Remember Fred Phelps and the rest of the Westboro assholes? Weeeeeeelllllll.....

(This made me smile so hard!)

So you know how Fred Phelps and his tribe of lawsuit-happy, homophobic crazies love to picket funerals and other functions with their hate-mongering signs and chants, which are often carried by young children?

Well, it does seem that they have a little bit of trouble being on the receiving end.

Behold, Equality House, a space and resource center for equality and anti-bullying initiatives, for volunteer members of Planting Peace (go here for more)

Equality House in Topeka
To get the full effect, keep in mind that this house? with this specific purpose? is located right across the street from the Phelps so-called “church.”

And if this alone weren’t enough to make you hit the donate button…

A 5-year old girl set up a lemonade stand in front of Equality House, to raise funds for–get this–

For Peace - Pink Lemonade
(click the image if you want to help her–and spit in the assholes eyes at the same time)

There you go, assholes, suck on that a bit.

The cherry on top:  it touched a nerve; according to this, someone connected to Phelps/Westboro twitted this:

“*WHO* let nasty fucks get hands on this poor child? #danger.”

(The irony, it slays)

And according to this, they have come out to scream obscenities at the girl, her father, and those who stop by to get some lemonade.

Well done, Jayden–you scored in all fronts!

Update: Jesus is not a homophobe!

Remember this? Well, a student in Ohio won the legal case and can now wear the t-shit proclaiming so!

Here’s the finger to assholes:

Today is the day where we spread awareness of the fact that the people we love–and who love us–are the same no matter what their sexual orientation.

Our brother, daughter, best friend from childhood, next door neighbor, coworker… our feelings for them, and how we feel about them, shouldn’t hinge on who they love.

Let us celebrate our diversity and rejoice in our individuality.
