Today In The Fight For Marriage Equality: Hairdressers and Corpse-Fucking (VIDEO)

Via Unicorn Booty Blog: “New Mexico Governor’s Hairstylist Refuses to Do Her Hair Over Anti-Gay Politics”:

Antonio Darden, a popular stylist who runs Antonio’s Hair Studio in Santa Fe, said he cut Martinez’ hair three times, but that’s it – unless she changes her mind about gay marriage.

“The governor’s aides called not too long ago, wanting another appointment to come in,” Darden said. “Because of her stances and her views on this I told her aides no. They called the next day, asking if I’d changed my mind about taking the governor in and I said no again.”

Via Joe.My.God: “Concerned Women Are Concernstipated About Gay Rights And Corpse-Fucking”:

The Georgia House Judiciary Committee has tabled a version of ENDA for state employees after testimony from the Concerned Women for America, who claimed that the bill would also grant employment protections to people into corpse-fucking and dog-fucking. Which apparently is a HUGE problem in Georgia, judging by the testimony of Tanya Ditty.

And today’s best news….

Via MetroWeekly: “BREAKING: DOMA’s Federal Definition of Marriage Unconstitutional, Judge Rules in Golinski Case”

Today, the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California issued its order finding that Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act — the federal definition of marriage — is unconstitutional in Golinski v. Office of Personnel Management, Karen Golinski’s challenge to the denial of her request for equal health insurance benefits for her wife.

Golinski, a federal court employee, brought suit after her request was denied. She is represented by Lambda Legal Defense and Education Fund. Because President Obama and the Department of Justice have stopped defending Section 3 of DOMA in court challenges, the Bipartisan Legal Advisory Group — led by House Republican leadership — had opposed Golinski’s request in court.

The judge making the decision was appointed by George W. Bush. How’s ‘dem apples?
