Nepal’s Version of a Gay Rights Rally

NEPAL GAY PRIDE DANCE X560 (GETTY) | ADVOCATE.COMGay rights proponents gathered in Nepal this weekend to call for their inclusion in a new constitution being drafted for the country, the Associated Press reports.  The constitution could include equal rights for sexual minorities. And supporters used the occasion of the traditional festival of Gaijatra, which honors the dead, to bring their campaign to Narayanghat. The rally couldn’t be missed in the rural town, with the march reportedly led by two decorated elephants. And bands played music to help draw people into the streets.  The Associated Press reports that LGBT people have felt more comfortable being open about their sexuality in the cities than in rural areas like Narayanghat, so the event marked a milestone in acceptance.

Why Bachmann Won’t Be Able To Reinstate Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell

Turns out that it wouldn’t be hard to do, legal experts say. That’s because the law repealing the ban that President Obama signed last December did not expressly order the Pentagon to allow openly gay or lesbian troops in the armed forces. Congress merely laid out a process under which the ban could be lifted. Under that process, the president, secretary of defense and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff had to certify that repeal would not undermine recruiting, retention, morale and other indicators of what is commonly called military readiness.

 

Kathy Griffin Talks Michele Bachmann ‘Bigot’ Meeting On Conan (VIDEO)

Kathy Griffin has, over the past few years, been a persistent thorn in the side of the Palin family, pulling public stunts, taking out Levi Johnston to events and making jokesBachman Griffin about Sarah and Bristol a regular part of her stand-up repertoire. Now, with a new religious ultraconservative woman taking the spotlight, the comedienne has a new target in her sights. Appearing on “Conan” Monday night, Griffin recalled the time she met Bachmann in Washington while researching for her rally to repeal Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.

Woodridge man allegedly kills dad with weed trimmer

Story ImageA Woodridge man accused of beating his father to death with a weed trimmer will undergo a psychological evaluation after he blurted out bizarre, nonsensical answers Monday during his first court hearing. “When did you last work?” DuPage County Judge John Demling asked 21-year-old Yashesh Desai at one point during his bond hearing. “The beginning of time, maybe,” answered Desai, who appeared via a video link from the DuPage County Jail.

 

Why Cleaned Wastewater Stays Dirty In Our Minds

A boom sweeps around a tank at a sewage treatment plant in Coos Bay, Ore. Even though sewage water can be treated and cleaned, psychologists say getting the "cognitive sewage" out of the water is much more difficult.

 Brent Haddad studies water in a place where water is often in short supply: California. Haddad is a professor of environmental studies at the University of California, Santa Cruz. About 14 years ago, he became very interested in the issue of water reuse. At the time, a number of California’s local water agencies were proposing a different approach to the state’s perennial water problems. They wanted to build plants that would clean local wastewater — aka sewage water — and after that cleaning, make it available as drinking water. But, says Haddad, these proposals were consistently shot down by an unwilling public.
 
Every hour of TV watching shortens life by 22 minutesAnyone who spends six hours a day in front of the box is at risk of dying five years sooner than those who enjoy more active pastimes, it is claimed. Researchers say that watching too much TV is as dangerous as smoking or being overweight, and that the “ubiquitous sedentary behaviour” should be seen as a “public health problem”. Experts from the University of Queensland, Australia, write: “TV viewing time may have adverse health consequences that rival those of lack of physical activity, obesity and smoking; every single hour of TV viewed may shorten life by as much as 22 minutes.”

Palin Say’s some fighting words about kathy Griffin

by Accidental Bear

If it came down to a claws scratching fist throwing street fight I think Palin would tear apart Kathy. Kathy sharp like a knife with a tongue would have to call on her enormous (love that word) gay Bear following to steam roll her. As far as Palin calling Kathy a has been, although she may be a ripe ole age of 50 “our”  Kathy (I claim the good ones) is just peaking!!

Fox News host Jeanine Pirro asked Sarah Palin how she feels about comedienne Kathy Griffin playing a “Tea Party candidate,” one some say resembles Palin, on an upcoming episode of Glee.

Clearly Palin’s not too pleased about the casting, or Griffin, whom she calls a “50-year old bully” and a “has-been.”

You know, Kathy Griffin can do anything to me or say anything about me, because you know, she’s kind of this – she’s a 50-year-old adult bully is really what she is…

She’s kind of a has-been comedian and she can do those things to me. I would just ask for respect of my children. As she had stated on CNN that her New Year’s resolution was to destroy my 16-year-old daughter, that takes it a little too far.

Kathy, pick on me, come up to Alaska and pick on me, but leave my kids alone.

If Griffin were indeed to fly up to Alaska, and the two women came to blows, my money would be on Mama Grizzly Palin. Something tells me she knows how to handle herself in such a situation.

Griffin To Play Palin Type on Glee

KATHY GRIFFIN X390 (GETTY) | ADVOCATE.COM

Kathy Griffin is set to make a guest appearance on Glee as what the casting notice describes as a “recent Tea Party candidate and home schooler — a Sarah Palin type,” reports Huffington Post.

Griffin has been one of the most outspoken critics of the former Vice Presidential candidate. After dating Levi Johnston, father of Palin’s grandson, for publicity, the comedian has continued to use the Palin family for fodder in her stand up act.

This won’t be the first time the Fox hit has referenced Palin. Last year Sue Sylvester (played by Jane Lynch) reprimanded sexually ambiguous cheerleading duo Santana and Brittany, with, “You may be two of the stupidest teens I’ve ever encountered — and that’s saying something. I once taught a cheerleading seminar to Sarah Palin.”
