In the Holiday Spirit

Today, July 31, is National Orgasm Day.  Yesterday was National Cheesecake Day.  If you combine them into one big celebration you might not live to see August.

He Does Love Wings

While sermonizing in a Georgia Baptist church on Sunday against the Supreme Court's same-sex marriage ruling, Fox News radio host Todd Starnes noted that Chick-fil-A is "the official chicken of Jesus."

Starnes was making a joke.  I'll say he was.  Everyone knows Jesus is a Bojangles' man.

Tangy Titles

I wonder if I'm the only lesbian with this problem.  When I think about "Orange Is the New Black," the Netflix series about women in prison, I conflate it with Jeanette Winterson's novel "Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit."  The result?  "Oranges Are Not Black."

Please, no more lesbian touchstones with citrusy titles.

Miss Prism:  Your German grammar is on the table.  Pray open it at page fifteen.  We will repeat yesterday's lesson.
Cecily:   But I don't like German.  It isn't at all a becoming language.  I know perfectly well that I look quite plain after my German lesson.

"The Kiss Heard Round the World"

American soccer star Abby Wambach's post-victory kiss yesterday with her wife Sarah Huffman  was all over Facebook today.  "Wambach kissing her wife after winning the World Cup will warm your heart," announced Time.  A "touching moment" proclaimed US Weekly.  Cosmopolitan declared, "Wambach melted everyone's hearts when she rushed the stands to kiss her wife."

So soon after the Supreme Court's legalizing of same-sex marriage, that kiss is making Americans' hearts mushy.

Except Antonin Scalia's.  His remains harder than the Washington Monument.

Hurtling Forward with the Agenda

My friends Louisa and Virginia have been legally married in the state of Washington for going on two years.  Immediately after the U.S. Supreme Court released its decision allowing same-sex couples all over the country to marry, Louisa posted an announcement on her Facebook page.  

"Let's get going on the Nefarious Homosexual Agenda right away!" she wrote. "Virginia and I are proud to announce that we are going to marry our dog, as we've been secretly planning all along."

Mind you, that Sophie is one cute dog.

It's hard to believe that gay Americans achieved full Constitutional personhood just five years after corporations did.
