    It looks like California is back to normal … at the forefront of the GLBTQAI civil rights movement in the US.

    After the humiliating failure to block Proposition H8, that’s a very good thing to see.

    Unfortunately, it’s also a facet of the civil rights movement that will have ol’ Slaggie the Gila Monster and Co. screaming to the high heavens that all we want kids for is to accessorize our purses (!!), and/or to have easy access to molest them. The fact that that’s as old and tired as “Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve” doesn’t seem to bother them at all.

    I wish that JoeMyGod would bring back his weekly digest of reich (sic) wing leaders who have been caught with their pants down: church youth leaders, pastors, bishops, etc. THEY may not be embarrassed, but they SHOULD be.

    I am very surprised that this law took so long to pass. In fact it was last year in California and Washington State the recognition of parentage was established for the first time. Under those laws any child that was born through IVF that have two mothers will be both recognized as parents. It is currently strange that you can be recognized as parents but unmarried and lesbians are still banned from IVF. In South Australia the same law applies, IVF parentage is recognized, but single women and lesbians are still banned from IVF. Strange laws indeed!
