Funny, Loren, that's exactly what McEnroe thought.

So professional women's tennis is "full of Lesbians."  Pardon my channeling Stephen Fry, but "SO FUCKING WHAT?!?"

The John McEnroe video didn't work for me; here's a related article:

‘Hold on, she lost to Bobby Riggs and then Billie Jean King beat the sh*t out of Bobby. Now I think I know where that hatred comes from.’

I'm not a tennis fan either, but this guy is a class act.

I love that John McEnroe video.  I don't follow tennis, so I'm not too familiar with the personal side of John McEnroe, so that was fun to see.

Now that we're in June, Pride Month, leave it to The Onion for a serious report on the subject...

John McEnroe comes back beautifully on Margaret Court's complaint that tennis is "full of lesbians.."

Daniel, I'm not familiar with the details of the Taiwan marriage ruling.  You may be correct about their legislative process.  Of course our ruling came via a court decision.  I'm not sure what events led up to the ruling in Taiwan.

I'm sure most of you have heard this news, but I didn't want this great achievement to go unrecognized in this forum.  This is a historic event for an Asian country.

Andrew, I think you've pinpointed a genuine dilemma here. On the one hand, people do have the right to their own beliefs, and (I guess . . . here's where the dilemma comes in) pass those beliefs to their children. At the same time, to poison young people's minds with such utterly vicious, superstitious, life-negative bullshit seems in some objective sense to be a repugnant violation of any sane values. A dilemma with goring horns and sharp teeth.

I'm not a history scholar, but the only times I'm aware of religion being officially outlawed, it was done by repressive, totalitarian regimes, much to the detriment of religious practitioners or anyone else seen as being subversive or dissident. Banning any widely accepted way of life is usually tyrannical, including even restricting dogma that we see as harmful, regressive, and self defeating. I agree that force cannot prevail, but that hearts and minds must change. I just don't have much confidence that we'll see that anytime in the foreseeable future.
