'Inane ideas of masculinity are damaging to us all' & other Wed midday news briefs

 Twitter Hashtag Reveals Just How Damaging Expectations Of Masculinity Can Be - Interesting piece which resonated with me. There were and still are certain expectations of me as as male which are a drag. What am I? An uncaring, unfeeling commodity for someone's idea of bliss? Some uber masculine black "stud" reject from a 1970s blaxploitation movie?

 Why Russia’s Persecution of its LGBT Community Matters - Wonderful piece which speaks directly to why we should all be concerned about the gay purge in Chechnya.  
2nd Circuit (again) finds anti-gay discrimination legal under Title VII - We win again. I am seriously loving these under-the-radar but very crucial wins.  

Human rights groups slam NCAA for bringing tournament back to North Carolina - Oh for crying out loud, NCAA!  

Alabama Governor urged to reject bill protecting anti-LGBT adoption agencies - We can only hope . . .

I'm not sure what you mean by a "win" in the 2nd Circuit decision. It stated that discrimination is legal, that LGBT discrimination is not covered under law.. Now they can go to an en banc decision, but it's really a set back
