Two items of interest

TN State Supreme Court gives tacit approval to anti-choice car tags

The Xtian soldiers are "marching as to war" in Tennessee. Soon the people who advocate the colonization of women's bodies will be able to proclaim their beliefs on state-sanctioned license plates. This is just a taste of what the Xtian Nationalists have in store for women in the days ahead. Denying women readily-available medical care that enhances their reproductive freedom is definitely in the crosshairs of the megachurch and their zealots and have been for a while.

I am appalled and embarrassed that Tennessee is allowing the fundamentalists to have their way with state sanction. There is no alternative tag for people who believe that women are full citizens in our society and should be allowed full bodily integrity.

My feeling that I am living in hostile territory is increasing daily as the Xtian stalwarts take each governmental body, one by one, and create nothing more than a big rubber stamp for right wing extremists who want this country to be *all* red.

What happened to red, white, and blue?

One more time for emphasis - GAY=MALE

Those who know me well, know that I never use the word "gay" to describe myself. My rationale for doing so is a firm opinion that gay=male.

Here's a scientific study described in an article on 365gay.com that shows, once again, that I am entirely correct.

Gay Biology
by The Canadian Press

(Toronto, Ontario) A new study suggests a male's sexual orientation is not the product of his environment but rather is influenced by biological factors present before birth.

Researchers at Brock University in St. Catharines, Ont., have found evidence that ``a prenatal mechanism(s) . . . affect men's sexual orientation development.''
