The NFL is Watching Arizona

As we look towards the upcoming draft and what will happen with Michael Sam, we now see the NFL as well as their Arizona franchise speak out against the AZ anti-gay discrimination law.

Wagner also strikes me as an out-dated type of politician who would serve the people of the commonwealth best by simply staying out of politics. As recently as his race for Pittsburgh mayor, he labeled himself as a pro-life democrat, and while his stance on LGBTQ issues has improved immensely from his days on Pittsburgh City Council, he is far from being a progressive.

We must never stop demanding our legal rights and full equality, yet we must also continue to strive for full acceptance culturally, in our neighborhoods, in the cities and towns where we live, our, our schools, our places of employment and everywhere we go. There are no places where bigotry can be acceptable if real equality is to be ours.

What racism looks like in 2014.

What racism looks like in 2014.

Racism, homophobia, misogyny, and a host of other examples where a group treats another group as if they are less than are all aspects of the same sense of privilege. When violence, threats and intimidation get connected, it is bullying an aggression, and we must all speak up and stop this type of aggressions.

LGBTQ youth face some of the greatest difficulties and too often we only hear about trans youth- or adults for that matter- who are victims. Thanks to GLAAD for pointing out this amazing young person.

Facebook gives voice to trans persons and spearheads awareness.

Facebook is the third largest “country on the planet. How much good can come when a country of over one billion residents begin to become aware of Gender Identity in new and meaningful ways?

But bloggers and writers have no excuses. We have a responsibility to make sure that what we write is accurate and helps rather than harm. We don’t get to plead for more time.

Homophobia in the locker room is irrational.

Homophobia in the locker room is irrational.

The other story sitting just out of sight, is that there are already gay and bi players in the NFL. Could be one or it could be dozens, but they are there. What will they do because of Sam’s announcement as well as with the whatever the NFL puts forward like the about garbage regarding homophobia, locker rooms and chemical balance? Will they continue to live and play football in the closet and acquiesce to the homophobia? Time will tell.

Do Olson and Boies belong in other same-sex marriage battles?

Do Olson and Boies belong in other same-sex marriage battles?

The arguments against same-sex marriage are feeble and unjustifiable. A talented legal team is very needed, but it would be a mistake to believe that only these two can make a US Supreme Court win possible.

Mertens and Whitney display a whole other level of integrity, honesty and meaning which is at the same time refreshing, inspiring and revolutionary.
