Mark Regnerus gets kinky, the states make a mess on marriage and discrimination, and Chris Christie gets a new tool, as your AggreGAYtor gets happy.

The Good

In Kentucky, marriage equality is a dish best served cold. Eat it, Scalia.

Oregon won’t defend its marriage ban in court.

Grab the popcorn; it’s easier than ever to track the Christie fiasco.

Virginia may have fumbled a bit on trans student rights, but they’re making progress.

The Bad

Homophobia is bad for everyone’s health, including the homophobe’s.

In Arizona, now they can get you for wearing red shoes on a Thursday, but not in four other states (yet). Mother Jones tells us why.

Alabama’s got us so upset. Tennessee made us lose our rest. And everybody knows about Mississippi, goddam.

The Fugly

Mark Regnerus blames homosexuality for the straight guy's interest in “dabutt.” He also still works at UT.

A chaplain refused last rites for a gay Catholic.

A New Mexico county is providing an example of why marriage equality shouldn’t just be ignored in law.

Bigots still use “tranny” as a weapon, so we need to stop using it altogether.

Chinese officials believe homosexuality goes against national and ideological progress.
