no title

She is absolutely going to slay this role!

Kerry Washington has been portraying Olivia Pope on Scandal for a little over three years now, and it looks like her commitment to the ABC drama is about to really benefit her upcoming role.

That's because Kerry's next high profile project is the HBO movie Confirmation, about the 1991 court case of Anita Hill accusing her boss, Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas, of sexual harassment.

The premium cable network revealed the first look of Kerry in her historical drama on Tuesday, and Kerry even thanked the company for making the movie, saying:

How did no one notice this??

Though Mexico didn't officially make a federal law stating that same sex marriage was legal, its Supreme Court seems to have done the job for them.

While the U.S. Supreme Court is still deciding on the issue, Mexico's ruled way back on June 3 that all laws banning the marriage of same-sex couples are discriminatory.

The new ruling states with perfect elegance and common sense:

Supreme Court Rules Against Abercrombie & Fitch In Religious Discrimination Case!

Supreme Court rules against Abercrombie in religious case.

Victory!!!

In 2008, then 17-year-old Samantha Elauf (pictured above in February 2015) was denied a job at Abercrombie & Fitch, which she felt was a result of her wearing a hijab, and thus identifying herself as Muslim, during the interview process.

On Monday, the Supreme Court, in a near unanimous 8-1 decision, ruled that companies cannot discriminate against employees, or deny employment to job applicants, for religious reasons.

The justices ruling against Abercrombie argued that even if the retailer did not know for a fact that Elauf was Muslim, their suspicions had nevertheless influenced their decision not to hire her.

Justice Antonin Scalia wrote:

"The rule for disparate-treatment claims based on a failure to accommodate a religious practice is straightforward. An employer may not make an applicant's religious practice, confirmed or otherwise, a factor in employment decisions."

This decision will obviously have major implications in the future for other companies who raise suspicions of discriminating for religious reasons.

It should be noted, however, that Abercrombie has changed its "looks policy" recently after backlash that the company only hired employees that fit a very narrow, mainstream ideal.

Better late than never, we guess!

It's official! The highest court in the land has announced it will make a decision in what will probably be one of the biggest cases for a long time to come.

The U.S. Supreme Court will rule on whether the right to marry is a constitutional right for same-sex couples, or whether states are allowed to ban same-sex marriages.

It's expected that the nine justices will begin hearing oral arguments from both sides in April before delivering a ruling by June.

Back in June of 2013, the court overturned the Defense of Marriage Act, a ruling that finally allowed married same-sex couples the same federal benefits as straight married couples.

​Supreme Court Is Likely To Review Same-Sex Marriage Bans After It's Approved In Four More States!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayLGBT

no title

Part of this is exciting… but for now it's mostly very disappointing.

The Supreme Court is likely going to review the country's laws regarding same-sex marriage, which is a good thing! But, we mean, it has to happen because the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit reversed ruling that struck down the ban on same-sex marriage in Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, and Tennessee. And that sucks.

Circuit Judge Jeffrey Sutton gave a 42-page opinion, basically stating that marriage is a state issue, not a federal issue. He added that in 1972, the Supreme Court ruled, "[it's the] right of the people of a state to define marriage as they see it."

Say It Ain't So, Idaho & Nevada! Supreme Court Does A 180 On Tuesday's Ruling & Puts Hold On Same-Sex Marriage!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayLegal MattersLove LineLGBT

no title

What a disappointment!

On Tuesday morning, the ban against same-sex marriage in Idaho was struck down, which was obviously GREAT news for many same-sex couples. Unfortunately, this morning, an emergency court order against same-sex marriage was granted in Idaho which means gay marriage will temporarily blocked. Nevada is involved in the whole ordeal because the appeals court decided to consolidate the two appeal cases.

President Barack Obama & Ellen DeGeneres Tweet Some Love For The Supreme Court's Same-Sex Marriage Decision! See More Twitter Support HERE!

no title

As you've probably heard by now (in the form of hundreds of wedding bells), the Supreme Court has come down on the side of marriage equality.

After months of appeals, the United States' highest court has brushed away any more stays and said that if same-sex marriage has been ruled legal in lower courts, they will NOT be overturning it.

[ Related: Target Is Fighting For Marriage Equality ]

That means same-sex weddings in Virginia, Oklahoma, Utah, Wisconsin, and Indiana are officially legal RIGHT NOW!

President Barack Obama led the nation to the right side of history, tweeting:

Love is love. Sounds good to us!
