Gay people in the U.S. can find comfort in knowing we are fast approaching equal rights in our country. The danger that international gay people face, however, is that our anti-gay activist losers are providing the rhetorical fuel to ignite more animus toward the LGBT community.

Today, with Hawaii on the verge of becoming the 16th state to pass marriage equality, and with gays much more visible, conservative ideologues are having a harder time raising money around the marriage issue. Enter transgender rights, the newest potential cash cow for the extremist right.

I was able to spot two small, simple signs: "Stop Co-Ed Showers in Schools" and "No Opposite Sex in School Bathrooms." I realized that the hordes of tourists were waiting for their chance to add signatures to the growing petition to topple California's new law protecting transgender students.

Although the religious right is a determined group, at some point they must show actual human beings who succeeded through "self-determination" at becoming heterosexual. Until then, they might as well be defending the right of a goat to become a unicorn.

In 2007 and 2008, its first two years of existence, NOM never bothered to file any tax returns with the IRS. Each subsequent year, NOM has either been late or filed at least two extensions on its tax returns. This is illegal if you are a 501(c)(3) or a 501(c)(4) tax-exempt organization like NOM.
