Ben Carson puts his entire foot in his mouth, heel and all

Dear Ben Carson,

Please stop talking. It just destroys me that your ridiculous run for president is ruining your legacy as a top-notch surgeon. But if you keep talking about the lgbt community like this, I swear you are going to start making Sarah Palin seem like Einstein:

No,no, no! This is not what an intelligent black man of any political affiliation is supposed to sound like on television. It just makes you want to take up pimping.

Hat tip to Right Wing Watch.

'LGBT community pays tribute to David Bowie' & other Mon. midday news briefs

Tributes are pouring in for David  Bowi

How David Bowie Undeniably Changed The Way We Think About Gender And Sexuality - I never really heard of David Bowie before his "Let's Dance" album but because of it, I sought to learn a lot about him. He was definitely a trendsetter. 

 LGBT People Reveal Why David Bowie Was So Important To Them - Yes he was . . .  

Redefining What It Means to Be a Gay Black Man -  Wonderful post. Goodness KNOWS we need redefinition. Might I recommend that first we receive more visibility for our diverse talents.

 Va. bill would block local anti-LGBT discrimination ordinances - Ugh! And if it's successful, welcome to the new war on lgbt equality.  

Santorum: Allowing Gay Marriage Like Changing 'The Chemical Equation For Water' - It's depressing to realize how much attention people like Rick Santorum gets from the regular press. That's why we have to cover him. 

 Roy Moore Can't Be Impeached And He Can't Be Re-Elected, So Guess Why He's Attacking Gays Again? - Cause he wants to be governor of Alabama. Whoops! I ruined the surprise. Well it really wasn't one.

David Bowie dies at 69 of cancer

Well this is crappy news to begin a week with. From David Bowie's webpage:

David Bowie died peacefully today surrounded by his family after a courageous 18 month battle with cancer. While many of you will share in this loss, we ask that you respect the family’s privacy during their time of grief.

He may not have been gay, but he was a hero to many of us with his outrageously public embrace of flamboyance and androgyny. Of course that didn't cover up the fact of how talented he was as an artist or the various styles of music he mastered.

R.I.P. David Bowie
