for those interested

* Latest developments on Fred Phelps and the laws being passed in various states re. protesting outside funerals

* A piece that really impressed me on the queer response to Brokeback and Brokeback's Oscar loss

I don't agree with everything he says, and the ending is a little weird (seems like he had to use his last breath to appease the white gays who want to make this all about US and THEM--did anyone see Brendan Lemon's embarrassing hissy earlier this week?), but I was glad to see someone address publicly some of the way the film has been talked about.

Yeah, I signed up for some Advocate news headline thingy, hence the links. Since basically my inbox has been a flood of enraged white gay guys throwing plastic vodka bottles at their TVs.
