Everyone Should Get Their Own Bathroom

Is that the solution to the pressing problem of transsexuals using public bathrooms? Perhaps first we should ask whether there is a problem. Many of the "religious freedom" bills being pushed through in several states address this very issue, whether needed or not. Mississippi's HB 1523 does indeed preserve the right of religious organizations and... Continue Reading →

Marriage Equality at Last

Just a note to express how happy I am that the Supreme Court (in a five-four decision) made the right choice.
