13 transgender women killed in US this year.  advocate.com

I don't know the significance that all but a couple are black, and those are hispanic.  

This year transgender day of remembrance honors 265 trans people murdered worldwide.

Two steps forward, one step .... well, we know how life works. This is a powerful victory, kind of like a sound horn in fog, leading one to home port. I celebrate with you. 
Sentient, you have a powerful voice with well chosen words to be our inspiration and guide.

Catholics direct $2 million to oppose equality.  Also advocate.com  I guess they're afraid orphans and miscellaneous poor people would misuse the money on stuff like food and shelter.  And maybe condoms and recreational abortions.

Did LGBT vote decide the recent presidential election?  Depends on how you calculate it. Advocate.com

I wonder if the same type of calculation could be done with the atheist vote, and how it would come out?

wow.  washington post editorial - "voters got it right even if the church gets it wrong"  The argument is in the context of christianity, but even so, it's a strongly supportive editorial.

Same-sex marriage is creating a new divide in the U.S.:

Yeah, it was great. Just got home and my friend Kari had sent it to me. I laughed out loud. Good one, SB.

Now that the election is over, time to take a little break from US political topics..   this is what I'm telling myself.  There's a lot more to the world.

 

Meanwhile, this video was fun.

Sentient, I am truly happy for you and happy to see sanity regarding this in Washington state legalization; There aren't many states, but at least legalization is moving in the right direction.

Laws regarding same-sex partnerships in the United States

  Same-sex marriage1
  Unions granting rights similar to marriage1,2
  Legislation granting limited/enumerated rights1
  Same-sex marriages performed elsewhere recognized1
  No specific prohibition or recognition of same-sex marriages or unions
  State statute bans same-sex marriage
  State constitution bans same-sex marriage2
  State constitution bans same-sex marriage andsome or all other kinds of same-sex unions
You will have to go to the site to see color code. 

1May include recent laws or court decisions which have created legal recognition of same-sex relationships, but which have not entered into effect yet.
2See the article on same-sex marriage in California for the status in California. .

KW, you got it!  That's exactly the unspoken threat.  NOM is evil.  Although, I do think they will know Starbucks is not the US.  But your point is well taken.
