The Winter Olympics heat up, Eric Holder levels off, and Rob Ford does what Rob Ford does best, as your AggreGAYtor hates hir crimp.

The Good

The federal government now recognizes marriage equality in every state.

In the Sochi fishbowl, life goes on for the locals, even the gay ones.

McDonald's has issued a predictably McMilquetoast response to its #cheerstosochi debacle.

Some see playing the Village People at the Olympics as hypocrisy, but you can’t stop the music, man.

The Bad

NBC removed portions of the IOC speech that referred to Russia’s anti-gay laws.

The Fugly

If you’re an American, Meme Roth probably thinks you’re disgusting.

Rob Ford, laughable bumblefuck and mayor of Toronto, tried and failed to remove a rainbow flag from city hall.

Whomever Texas' next attorney general may be, they’re likely to continue fighting marriage equality.
