I HAVE to say this: A lot of people wanted Callie to be angry and lash out at Arizona. And thought her reaction wasn’t big enough. But since this moment in 9x01, Callie has fought like hell to get her wife back and get their life back. She’s played the bad guy. She’s cried and screamed with Arizona and she’s also kept quiet and took it. She’s given all she can give. Put all her energy into this woman and this marriage only to lose Arizona anyway, along the way. She is exhausted and right there she just gives up. She’s defeated and she’s got nothing left to give.
Here is the thing I can’t stop thinking about with what’s happened here in Minnesota over the course of the past week: the display of support in the Twin Cities was staggering. The level of f*cks not given to those who might be offended by this acknowledgement of equal rights under the law was amazing.
But mostly, mostly. I think about a queer kid, riding in the back of her parents’ car seeing the city lit up like this. Maybe she hasn’t come out yet, maybe she’s been bullied, at home, at school, for being who she is. I can only imagine what seeing this would mean. And then I get teary and proud all over again.
Way to go, Minnesota. Who’s next?
Proud of you Minnesota!
Don’t forget we had the first lawful same-sex marriage in the United States! Jack Baker (under the name Pat Lyn McConnell) and Michael McConnell were given a marriage license is Blue Earth County in August of 1971. They were married by Methodist minister Reverend Roger Lynn on September 3rd, 1971.
September 3rd, 1971, people. That was the first same-sex marriage in the United States. 41 years and 8 months ago. And guess what? They’re still together. Forty one years.
Fuck all the arguments about how it ruins the sanctity of marriage. Fuck all of them.
so i was watching the news and this 2nd grader wrote this to the president, vice president, and a congressman. biden was the only one to respond yet. LITERALLY.

Unfortunately, this is a real restaurant and that is a real response. Their page was not hacked and thus trolled (that I know of). The owners are just really crazy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G6LY7TJ16pg

HOLY BALLS, I SAW THE FULL EPISODE ABOUT THIS TRAIN-WRECK OF A RESTAURANT.
GORDON RAMSAY LEFT THE RESTAURANT WITHOUT CHANGING IT BECAUSE HE SAID HE WAS SCARED AND DISTURBED BY THE PLACE AND IT’S OWNERS.
LET ME REPEAT THAT.
GORDON FUCKING RAMSAY SAID HE WAS SCARED AND DISTURBED BY HOW VICIOUS THE OWNERS ARE.
“OK. I’ll lick you until you’re not sad.”
Pride not prejudice #rctid
I’m too amused by the fact that they used the pic of Gaz kissing Scholesy after he scored against City. LOL. One of my favorite United moments.

Faith in humanity is momentarily restored.
