Apocalpyse Baby Shower Now

Barbin MD has a great Kos diary up about how the GOP is doubling down on their anti-gay marriage rhetoric. Meanwhile, in the real world, the suburban mom favorite magazine "Real Simple"--home of great quickie meal ideas, wonderful home craft projects, advice on what to do about toxic friends and all around cozy mommy world runs a straight up, no comment, picture rich photo essay and journal about the double pregnancy and happy delivery of "twins" by a sweet young lesbian couple. Its not available yet online--its the May 2009 issue--but nothing could be more ordinary, heartwarming, aesthetically pleasing and utterly non threatening than the text and images in this article celebrating the arrival of the "twins" born three weeks apart to these young women. The ship in homophobia has sailed, and as far as I can see it is sinking with all hands on deck just over the horizon.
