"This is how it really is, abortion: You do things you regret or don’t understand and then you make other choices because life keeps going forward. Or you do something out of love and then, through biology or accident, it goes inexplicably wrong, and you do what you can to cope.
The best thing you can do if you support reproductive rights is to force people to realize that abortion is common, and the most common abortion is a five-to-15-minute procedure elected early in the first trimester by someone who doesn’t want to be pregnant or have a child."

"It’s a survival thing. In America, we lose six queer kids a day to the street. That’s every four hours a queer kid dies, whether it be from freezing to death or getting the shit beat out of them or a drug overdose. This is our next real plague."

Vivian and Alice tied the knot after 72 years together — but tell us again why gay people shouldn’t marry?
If you need a reminder of what true love looks like, look no further than the picture above.
Last Saturday, Vivian Boyack, 91, and Alice Dubes, 90, did something new after 72 years together: tie the knot. The lifelong Iowa couple, who had met in college in the ’40s, were wed at the First Christian Church in Davenport, Iowa, where they lived together since 1947.
"It just hit us immediately – if you can understand that," Dubes told the Guardian of the first time they met. "Kind of like a regular marriage, the boy and girl meet … well, that was just the way we were."
