Obama Orders End to Defense of DOMA

Described as "unconstitutional"

Today the United States Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. sent a letter to Congress indicating that the Justice Department has changed its position on DOMA, the Defense of Marriage Act. The Justice department beginning today will take the position in court, including in two pending cases, that the Defense of Marriage Act should be struck down as a violation of gay couples' rights to equal protection under the law.

M/M Erotica

It's not what you think

A post by a fellow writer here, has me mildly annoyed. The poster was ostensibly writing about what he thought of as "gay fiction."

Except it wasn't gay fiction, or even queer fiction, that is, fiction featuring same-sex attracted characters (whether gay males or lesbians or bisexual). The post was about fiction written by straight-identifying women for other straight-identifying women. It was M/M erotic fiction.
