'Shoddy reporting from conservative media harming transgender youth' & other Friday midday news briefs

Breaking: Arizona makes 31 and there will be no stay:
For more details - Arizona Is Now A Marriage Equality State 

 In other news: 

 Purple Penguins: How Conservative Media Make It Harder For Schools To Protect Transgender Youth - False accusations, hysterical claims, not even bothering to get the side of the story from advocates for protecting transgender children, the list goes on and on. There is some relative desensitization about how the conservative media will distort stories and such but this isn't the time for that. This junk is hurting our transgender kids. 

 Second N.C. magistrate resigns: ‘I know what the Bible says’ - I respect you for standing up for your beliefs. Now, let the doorknob hit ya where the good Lord split ya.  

Anti-Gay Groups Turn Spirit Day Into 'Bring Your Bible To School Day' - That didn't work out as well as OUR Spirit Day events.

SECOND NC Magistrate Resigns?? He knows what the Bible says? Well great!

He can stop infecting the law with his Bible and asking his Bible to be the Law - he will probably get more out of both. Good day indeed!

The funny thing is he seems to imply that we're all going to jump up and shout "NO no no don't go... we NEED you and yur Bible!"

Only downside I see here is that 2 fools now have free time.

I can't take my skin off as you can change your mannerisms or effeminate clothing. No one would know you were gay unless you show and/or tell. My race is on display 24/7. THAT 's WHY YOU CANNOT COMPARE YOUR GAY STRUGGLE TO THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT.

Well I am sorry to hear how ashamed you are of your racial color, however I fail to see how that has anything to do with whether or not folks should be deprived of equality under the law. Also, get yourself off of the pedestal. The African-American Civil Rights Movement is merely one movement in a continuum of situations in which folks deprived of equality stood up for themselves. And yes, we can compare the gay equality movement to the African-American Civil Rights Movement because they are similar when one looks past the nuances.

Lastly, please pull your head out of your ass and stop with the stereotypes regarding gay men. That's part of your problem.
