Rihanna tries out gay porn, Jim DeMint tries a new position, and Roger Goodell tries to regain composure. Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve today’s AggreGAYtor.

A marriage equality decision could come today as the Supremes meet again behind closed door. I still wouldn’t get my hopes up. John Roberts just got his copy of Call of Duty: Black Ops.

Chirlane McCray, the wife of New York mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio, admits she was once a lesbian but now she’s strictly dickly. All those photos of Beyoncé on her computer are there because she likes her style. Yeah, that’s it.

• Tea-stained raisinette Jim DeMint resigns from Senate to run anti-gay think tank the Heritage Foundation.

• Two thirds of respondents in a new national poll think that anti-LGBT discrimination is a big deal.

• In a stunning dramatic reenactment of Morrissey’s “Hairdresser on Fire,” London stylist Lee Howett stabs a homophobic train passenger with his scissors.

• If the National Organization for Marriage doesn’t want to be seen as a rabid militia who time traveled from the Antebellum south, perhaps returning money from white supremacists would be a good start.

• Hahaha. The Liberty Council is trying to start a meme. Can’t wait to see this one on Buzzfeed.

• The members of Sweden’s Sörskogens IF football club have all been fired for hurling homophobic slurs at opposing team. Reportedly sales of Ikea’s Sörskogens planter are also slumping.

• Today in heartwarming, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell tears up as bullied gay brother describes him as his hero.

• New LDS website tries to convince gay Mormons to stay with the church.

• A senate panel has approved the nomination of openly lesbian judge Pamela Chen to the federal bench.

• Meanwhile, Tulane’s student government body rejects LGBT liaison while snockered on jello shots.

• According to new research, bisexuals are more likely to report sexual orientation to doctors than their gay and lesbian counterparts.

Sex is in the air and Rihanna likes the smell of it.

• Pop star Ke&ha Ke@ha Kesh$a, a stick of Fruit Stripe gum dipped in melted crayon and rolled in glitter, really wants to be a gay man.

• Ugandan rag Red Pepper publishes photos of football manager Chris Mubiru engaged in alleged gay sex.
