First, speaking of same-sex couples, we’re wondering which Democratic challenger for president had the best “officiating a gay wedding tweet” today: John Hickenlooper or Seth Moulton?
We’ll start with Hickenlooper, since he beat Moulton by one hour. Is he really suggesting the Supreme Court is going to roll back same-sex marriage?
Last year, I had the privilege of officiating Rick and Graham's wedding. With all the progress we’ve made, we can’t afford to see it rolled back—least of all by the two Trump appointees now on the Supreme Court.

Moulton’s tweet was later, but the ceremony was fresher:
Congratulations, Brad and Michael. I'm honored to have been a part of your celebration. pic.twitter.com/sb57EwxJ2f

Too bad you won’t be honored with a spot on the Democratic debate stage. Tough break.
But anyway, you’ll remember that, as TIME reported it, the Internet was “overjoyed” that the teacher on PBS Kids show “Arthur” kicked off the new season in May by marrying his partner, which is kind of odd, because he apparently invited his students to the wedding even though he’s been in the closet for 21 seasons.
“Arthur” is still a kids’ show (although you could argue that), but the revival of “My Little Pony” has attracted a herd of “bronies,” adult men who love the show. They’ll probably be glad to see that Equestria is finally getting a same-sex couple.

The writers of “My Little Pony” have confirmed that the latest season of the show will see two new characters – Aunt Holiday and Aunt Lofty. The first episode that includes the same-sex couple will air on June 15, right in the middle of Pride month.
When a photo of the characters was tweeted by a fan account, “My Little Pony” writer Michael Vogel commented on the image: “What a cute couple!!!!!”
A fan then raised the question — are the two rainbow ponies in the photo romantically involved? “Well they aren’t sisters so….” Vogel responded. When the fan asked for clarification, Vogel explained, “When I say ‘cute couple’ I’m saying that Aunt Holiday and Auntie Lofty are a cute couple. Yes.”

I do not know what is more absurd: saying people should not say their sexual orientation, or seeing how absurd it is that people should say their sexual orientation.

How early are we going to teach the young about that? Seems to me it ought to be later, like when they learn about puberty and sex.

Yes because kids care about who has sex with whom. It’s very important for children to think about having sex.
