+Leathur Rokk To be fair, a huge portion of the Tumblr community is "hetrophobic," and there are a LOT of people who actually pretend to be trans just to fit in. It's starting to piss off the legitimate gay community, and some are starting to organize gay-only groups that exclude trans people as a way to keep out these nutcases who fake being different for attention, and just to be victims. All they do is whine about being hated for issues they don't even have, and they can and will spin anything and everything into BS drama, demonizing anyone who won't walk on eggshells.

They are exactly like the people who pretend to have "headmates," like its just one big party to have a voice in your head, never mind the fact that the suicide rates for people who actually have problems like that, are up to 50%. They discredit people who have real problems and they are a social disease of the worst possible kind.

equaldex.com article on +SameSame.com.au!

Great article! "A new website aims to feature every LGBT-related law in every country and region in the world, showing which countries are the most inclusive and welcoming to queer people, and which are the most homophobic."

Arkansas blows my mind, you'd think they would learn from their own history

You would think so, but no. A School just south of Little Rock Arkansas refuses to publish a gay students bio in the high school year book. I find it really funny that a place that's so heavily associated with black history in America and blacks having equal rights that they would have learned from their own history. 

But no, after everything the Little Rock 0 went through and how negative it was for them and how bad it looked for the area at the time that people living there would be much more tolerant of diversity but clearly not. JFC

you know, I just love that one pizza shop that said, "We reserve the right to refuse service to Arizona legislators" after they made that law about refusing service to gay couples based on religion. Quite frankly, whoever did this is a shallow #^$(#&$*.

Lambda Legal Sues Doctor and Clinic for Denying Medical Care to Transgender Woman

"Yesterday, in the United States District Court for the Central District of Illinois, Urbana Division, Lambda Legal filed a lawsuit on behalf of Naya Taylor, a transgender woman denied medical care after she requested hormone replacement therapy. The lawsuit alleges a violation of the ACA’s non-discrimination provisions prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sex,(which includes gender identity), and requires that clinics receiving federal funds treat transgender patients in the same manner as they would any patient under their care."

Brendan Eich Steps Down as Mozilla CEO

"Brendan Eich has chosen to step down from his role as CEO. He’s made this decision for Mozilla and our community.

Mozilla believes both in equality and freedom of speech. Equality is necessary for meaningful speech. And you need free speech to fight for equality. Figuring out how to stand for both at the same time can be hard."

I'm curious to know who you're calling militant activists here. Last I checked, the biggest negative reactions came first from Mozilla's employees, then Mozilla's target audience. Will you argue that these two groups have no say in how the company should run? I mean, the only outside group I've heard taking sides is a _dating site._

um, that was an April Fools joke, right?  You can tell because it refers to "internet exploder" at the bottom of the page.

A collaborative knowledge base for the LGBT movement.
Introduction
Equaldex (originally Equalitopia) is a collaborative web application that will analyze and organize data about the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) movement. There’s a vast amount of information on the web and in the news about laws, views and attitudes towards the LGBT movement. Equaldex will be a platform to document, organize and analyze that data.

The goal of the application is to give people a better understanding of the LGBT movement.

Equaldex Blog, a sister project of Equaldex, is a blog covering LGBT equality issues.
