Symantec no longer thinks non-explicit LGBTQ content needs to be filtered.
Symantec no longer thinks non-explicit LGBTQ content needs to be filtered.

I can remember, not too long ago in high school during the surge of computer availability, one of the near impossible things to do was get past the school imposed internet security filters.  So anytime you wanted to get an answer or research LBGT life, you were blocked because the filter wasn’t set to separate porn from safe sites such as the HRC, Gladd, or Glsen.  According to an AP article, Symantec isn’t the first internet security company to do this, but jumping on board is still a welcomed move.  Here’s a statement from Symantec after the jump.

Never before has the legal case for nationwide marriage equality seemed stronger than at the recent Federal Court of Appeal’s argument in the Indiana and Wisconsin marriage cases. For nearly two hours, the Seventh Circuit panel of three judges, appointed by Presidents Reagan, Clinton, and Obama, tore gaping holes in every argument the states’ attorneys defending Indiana and Wisconsin’s marriage bans offered.

So I came across this post yesterday and I’ve been taking my time reading it.  It’s a list of 20 celebrities, who their own admission, swing both ways.  Some I knew about, some I suspected might be a secret superhero (like Josh Hutcherson) and some I literally had no idea about!  This is a great article and while I’ve been pretty aware that bisexuality is getting a little better press and coverage these days I was reminded what a positive impact people coming out and being open about who they are.

Hey everyone, a bit of a different post today! There is a place in Thailand I recently came across in my studies for art class.

GOP bails on the country

Just when you think House Republicans couldn’t stoop any lower:  they do.  In yet another despicable move that should insult every hard-working American in the country, the do-nothing GOP voted yesterday to give themselves another eight weeks off.  Immediately after they skipped town to hit the campaign trails in their respective districts and won’t reconvene in Washington until after the midterms in November.
