Trump’s Energy Secretary Rick Perry Is Obsessed with Texas A&M’s Gay Student Body President
Rick Perry, former governor of Texas and Trump’s Secretary of Energy, is weirdly angry and obsessed about Texas A&M getting a gay student body president.
In a column for the Houston Chronicle, Perry wrote that he was “deeply troubled” to learn that openly gay Bobby Brooks was now the university’s student body president.
Perry suggested that Brooks had won unfairly, and that his success was the result of “diversity” over “due process.”
Brooks did not win the popular vote in the election. Instead, the student became president because the ...

Japan Will Finally Start Protecting Its LGBTQ Students from Bullying
Last week, Japan’s Education Ministry updated its bullying prevention policy to include LGBTQ students.
The updated Basic Policy for the Prevention of Bullying now calls for teachers to be trained to handle LGBTQ issues.
The policy, quoted in Gay Star News, now suggests that schools “promote proper understanding of teachers on… sexual orientation/gender identity as well as make sure to inform on the school’s necessary measures regarding this matter.”
It’s a big step in the right direction. Formerly, Japan had a huge problem with anti-LGBTQ bullying. A recent survey found that ...

Taiwan’s High Court Today Considers Same-Sex Marriage for Its Citizens
Judges in Taipei are today considering a court case that could make Taiwan the first place in Southeast Asia to legalize same-sex marriage.
Taiwan has been considering legalizing same-sex marriage for some time now. The president and much of the public favor the change, though conservatives, particularly Christians, staunchly oppose the move.
The BBC writes:
A panel of 14 justices are hearing arguments and will debate whether a line in Taiwan’s civil code, which states that marriage is between a man and a woman, is unconstitutional.

Today Donald Trump Uttered the Words ‘Because I’m President, And You’re Not’
It’s official: the man who “has the best words” has become a fed-up mother scolding the country as if we were his nagging child.
Of course, what he forgets is that as president of the United States, he works for us, the American people — not the other way around.
The statement came during an interview with Time magazine. Trump was asked whether he would believe the intelligence community if it told him his tweet about being wiretapped by Obama was false. Instead of answering the question, he dodged it by ...
Let’s Talk About Utah’s Unacceptable Spike in LGBTQ Suicides
When we read this, our jaws dropped: There was a week last year, in the summer of 2016, when in less than a 50-mile radius of central Utah, eight LGBTQ youths committed suicide. EIGHT. Those numbers come from Mama Dragons, an organization that acts as a support group for LGBTQ-accepting Mormon mothers. What is causing this completely insane spike in queer suicides? Well, unsurprisingly, many are pointing fingers at the Mormon Church.
This exposé of sorts from Vox.com opens with one suicide in particular: that of a teenage boy named Stockton — a kid ...

Sure, there are probably worse places our mind could go than thinking about Wolverine’s penis, but there are no doubt more productive places, too.
