A little blueberry juice and room odorizers and the next thing you know...

Queen Latifah drops another hint, OITNB isn't just on the Internet, and the military plays word games, as your AggreGAYtor sneaks off with Brainy.

The Good

An ex-ex-gay speaks out against quackery.

Tom of Smurfland. Smurfette figure not included.

Queen Latifah throws us a bone, soon to play Bessie Smith.

The Bad

Effing with trans inmates’ hormone treatments is more than a Netflix plot device.

The Pentagon isn’t being very helpful when asked about its trans servicemembers.

The Fugly

The Family Research Council put in an  all-out effort to block a candidate even the Senate couldn’t reject.

Maryland is trying to use bathroom panic to repeal its trans protections.

Wow, these British hate crime perpetrators were incredibly stupid.
