Just a human who falls in love with other humans. Am I any different?
Send me asks with app ideas. I’m trying to challenge myself over christmas break, but my ideas for apps are either too complex or not really worth making.
you should ALWAYS use a condom unless it’s been explicitly discussed and you have decided otherwise as a couple! always!!!!!!!!!!
even if you’re lesbians???????
especially if you’re lesbians! if both of you get pregnant that’s twice as bad
How does that even work?
Wait, I don’t want to know…
While 2013 will be remembered for the work of hundreds in advancing marriage equality, it will also be remembered for the example of one man.
When deciding who was the single most influential person of 2013 on the lives of LGBT people, there are obvious choices. At least, they seem so at first.
While Edie Windsor, for example, is among the list of finalists, she is not Person of the Year. Windsor is a hero to LGBT Americans for taking the final punch in the fight against the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act, and section 3 is no more. When she stepped out from the Supreme Court hearing, applause erupted. At the Out 100 awards, where she was given an award for Lifetime Achievement, chants of “Edie! Edie!” greeted her on stage. On the magazine’s November cover, she beamed while holding a white dove — a symbol.
But even Windsor herself is a powerful symbol for the many others behind the scenes. Also at the Supreme Court that day, for example, were the four plaintiffs in the related Proposition 8 case from California, and they should be lauded. Or, any of their lawyers. There’s the straight team of David Boies and Ted Olson, who frequently became the public champions for marriage equality’s advance through the justice system via television interviews and in news reports. Then there’s attorney Roberta Kaplan, one of us, who eloquently refuted Chief Justice John Roberts when he suggested times have changed and LGBT people are no longer an oppressed minority.
It doesn’t stop there. A handful of other cases could have gone to the Supreme Court this year and weren’t chosen. There are plaintiffs and lawyers in all of those. They come from states ranging from Michigan to Massachusetts. Oftentimes backing the cases are the resources of LGBT rights organizations such as Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders or Lambda Legal, or more mainstream allies such as the American Civil Liberties Union. Hundreds of people work at those organizations and have been fighting the Defense of Marriage Act in court — for years. Take, for example, Gill v. Office of Personnel Management, which was first filed in 2009 and originally represented 19 people.
Edie Windsor is a hero, one well worth recording in history books that retell the story of DOMA’s demise. But she is not the Person of the Year. She couldn’t possibly be, not for The Advocate,where we celebrate the work of so many who contributed to that landmark Supreme Court victory.
When Windsor came in third for Time magazine’s annual list of people of the year, she accepted graciously, as always. “I am honored that Time chose me,” she wrote in a statement, “but I am just one person who was part of the extraordinary and on-going fight for marriage equality for all our families. There are thousands of people who helped us come this far and we still have a lot more work to do.”

The most influential person of 2013 doesn’t come from our ongoing legal conflict but instead from our spiritual one — successes from which are harder to define. There has not been any vote cast or ruling issued, and still a significant and unprecedented shift took place this year in how LGBT people are considered by one of the world’s largest faith communities.
Pope Francis is leader of 1.2 billion Roman Catholics all over the world. There are three times as many Catholics in the world than there are citizens in the United States. Like it or not, what he says makes a difference.
