food for thought... In his new book "The Food Matters Cookbook: 500 Revolutionary Recipes for Better Living," New York Times food writer Mark Bittman urges Americans toward a more plant-based diet. Bittman takes on factory farming and the health impacts of a diet too heavy on meat and processed foods, but where others leave us to figure out how to change our habits, Bittman provides recipes for a healthy and environmentally sustainable diet. via Continue reading

No matter what happens, San Francisco, embrace it. This is why we like sports. Because they are ridiculous, and they make people really happy when we’d usually just bide the time complaining about what we don’t like about each other. Embrace it, San Francisco. This is why we like each other. Right now. Fear the goddamn beard. via Continue reading

KETK-NBC news anchors ask: “Will the acceptance of homosexuality in this society be the downfall of America?” Yes, that was a question actually posed to viewers by a Texas-based NBC affiliate TV station, both on the air and online. But it didn’t end there. The station then went on to broadcast responses from viewers -- some of the most vitriolic attacks on LGBT people that you will ever hear on a network affiliate. via Continue reading

Welcome, Texas people! We are happy to have you in our Fair City. Please allow me to give you a few tips that will enhance your stay here: 1. Remember - gay people always want to have sex with you and will pursue you relentlessly. Also, they are everywhere. 9 out of 10 men in San Francisco are gay. How can you spot a gay person? They are wearing ascots and carrying small dogs in Vuitton carriers. They also lisp and faint if startled. BE CAREFUL. 2. We're all stoned out on The Pot 24/7. That's because we're all hippies,...

This makes my stomach turn and my blood boil. The Human Rights Campaign discovered that Midland School Board member Clint McCance went into a bigoted Jeremiad on Facebook, bashing the very LGBT teens he has a duty to protect. He MUST be fired for his reckless and irresponsible hate speech. McCance was reacting on Facebook to Spirit Day that urged people to wear purple in honor of young LGBT teens who committed suicide after being bullied by peers. On his page McCance wrote: “Seriously they want me to wear purple because five queers committed suicide. The only way im wearin... Continue reading

That is not a vision of social progress; it is, in fact, a complete failure to imagine how technology might change society in the future. Though it's easy to parody the poor guy who talked about potato chips after the Singularity, his faith is emblematic of Singulatarian beliefs. Many scientifically-minded people believe the Singularity is a time in the future when human civilization will be completely transformed by technologies, specifically A.I. and machines that can control matter at an atomic level (for a full definition of what I mean by the Singularity, read my backgrounder on it). The problem with... Continue reading

And while you can only attack gays and lesbians at the ballot box, nice and impersonally, your children have the option of attacking actual gays and lesbians, in person, in real time. Real gay and lesbian children. Not political abstractions, not “sinners.” Gay and lesbian children. Try to keep up: The dehumanizing bigotries that fall from the lips of “faithful Christians,” and the lies about us that vomit out from the pulpits of churches that “faithful Christians” drag their kids to on Sundays, give your children license to verbally abuse, humiliate, and condemn the gay children they encounter at school....

When I heard about the death of 15-year-old Billy Lucas early in September, I was terribly saddened. It is a tragedy when a young person completes suicide in the aftermath of daily torment and harassment. After this, I sat in stunned silence in front of my computer screen as news stories continued to appear about the suicides of 13-year-old Asher Brown, 18-year-old Tyler Clementi, 13-year-old Seth Walsh, and 19-year-old Raymond Chase. Today, it is very clear to me that profound sadness and stunned silence is no longer a suitable, appropriate or adequate response. via Continue reading
