The rules have changed yet again this week in Colorado, with new rulings on marriage from multiple courts. New polls show growing support for equality in western states, but multiple Attorneys General have filed new briefs to stop gay and lesbian couples from marrying. And another Republican member of Congress has come out in favor of the freedom to marry.

(MNW) Politician Says Marriage Equality is Murder!

Anti-gay groups are getting desperate, with one candidate for governor comparing marriage equality to murder. An Alabama scheme to slip a marriage ban into the US Constitution is moving forward but is pretty much guaranteed to fail. A judge in Ohio rules that marriage equality isn't only for dead people anymore. Plus, a major marriage victory in Utah gets put to the test on appeal this Thursday. We'll have all the details.

TRANS-LATE: Girl Scout Calls for Boycott of Cookies Because Organization Welcomes Transgender Kids!


Girlscout
A 14-year-old Girl Scout named Taylor is calling for a boycott of Girl Scout Cookies because the organization welcomes transgender children, World Net Daily reports.

Says Taylor, in a YouTube video: “The real question is, why is GSUSA willing to break their own safety rules and go against its own research institute findings to accommodate transgender boys? Unfortunately, I think it is because GSUSA cares more about promoting the desires of a small handful of people than it does for my safety and the safety of my friends and sister Girl Scouts, and they are doing it with money we earned for them from Girl Scout cookies.”

The Girl Scouts of America's inclusive policy made headlines last fall when a Colorado troop refused (and later reversed) admittance to Bobby Montoya, a transgender 7-year-old.

CAUGHT: Chaz hits the slopes!


 


A newly-single Chaz Bono tweeted this photo of himself on the ski slopes in Colorado.

The Dancing With the Stars alum writes: Skiing for the first time in 20 years. Man am I going to be sore tomorrow.

Chaz had tweeted earlier in the week that he was heading to Colorado with stepmom Mary Bono, her husband and Chaz’s brother Chesare.
In January, it will be 14 years that Chaz’s dad, Sonny Bono, was killed in a tragic skiing accident near Lake Tahoe.

CENSORED? Denver Arts Center Does Not Display the Word 'Gay' on its Marquee!

Denver
A tipster sent this in to us over the weekend.
The Denver Gay Men's Chorus had a concert at the L2 Arts and Culture Center in Denver over the weekend, but you wouldn't know by looking at the marquee.

The word "gay" in the choir's name, deemed too inappropriate to be broadcast in bright lights, was instead replaced with three asterisks.

UPDATE:The person at L2 who programmed the sign left without realizing that the 'nanny' software blocked GAY as an inappropriate word. Once people at L2 realized what had happened they scrabbled to override the software and did fix it. Sounds like the L2 staff were as upset that this happened as the chorus members were.

Bobby Montoya is a 7-year-old who identifies as a girl. Her family accepts Bobby's gender identity but the local Girl Scout troop turned down the family's request that Bobby be able to join, despite the inclusive policy of the Girl Scouts of Colorado, 9 News reports: "It's hurting my heart," Bobby said. "It hurts me and my mom both."

Recently, Archuleta wanted to sign Bobby up for Girl Scouts. His older sister did it, and Bobby really wanted to join. Archuleta told 9NEWS when she brought Bobby to register, a troop leader told her Bobby couldn't join.
