Something tells me neither the Later-day or the Former-day Saints are going to be Wild about that.

I'm sure that the Bono-day Saints will be happy to welcome him.

We hear a lot about "higher education." I call this an example of lower education:

Kentucky principal who tried to ban LGBT books arrested for possessing and distributing child pornography

But it was straight child porn, so it's ok.

The mayor is now turning his attention to Northstar, Batwoman, Karma, Maggie Sawyer, Renee Montoya and Kevin Keller.

Rio's mayor tried to ban Avengers comic book featuring kiss between two male superheroes. Now it's sold out.

He's over compensating.

Something tells me that he spends a little more time checking out the Speedo's on the beaches than he wants to admit.

On July 24 – Go look! – I posted this story:


Here we go again. An American-born girl can't be an American citizen because she was "born out of wedlock." When did "wedlock" become a condition for citizenship?

It's not, when the parents are biological. But there's surrogacy and donor parents thrown in here, so it's more complicated. Which allows them to legally be jerks about this.

Our own guv'mint says "To become a citizen at birth, you must: have been born in the United States or certain territories or outlying possessions of the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction of the United States; OR had a parent or parents who were citizens at the time of your birth (if you were born abroad) and meet other requirements." That sounds pretty clear. Nothing about surrogates or sperm donors.


Fortunately for me, California became a state just a few years before I was born. :D

Yes, but again, none of this applies when the birth parents are not identifiable within that definition.

So if a woman who is a US citizen gives birth and her child is given to two other people to raise, the child is no longer considered to be a citizen? That makes no sense. By that standard, no children put up for adoption would be citizens. Do we have an official DRC legal expert?

No. You can't seem to acknowledge that embryonic conception and surrogacy are different than all these standard scenarios.

I acknowledge that they're different – but I don't see why "embryonic conception and surrogacy" should have any bearing on whether a child is a United States citizen. The law says anyone born in the United States is a citizen. If there are exceptions, I haven't found them. See the third page at

Because some people will take every loophole and technicality they can find to disqualify a person, so that they can appease their homophobic base.
