Texas Anti-Abortion Bill Shot Down After Marathon Filibuster Falls Short!

Filed under: Legal MattersPolitik

wendy davis filibuster falls short but texas anti abortion bill shot down

A bill that would have put heavy restrictions on abortions in the state of Texas was declared dead early this morning, but it wasn't without its fair share of drama!

Senator Wendy Davis was at the center of it all yesterday when she attempted a 13-hour filibuster to block any voting on the bill. However, her effort fell three hours short after she was given third strike for violating rules when it was determined she had gone off topic!

A packed gallery full of protestors broke into boos chants of "Shame! Shame! Shame!" as the people took over where Wendy left off, and the room erupted into applause when the clock struck midnight and it looked as though the bill was officially dead!

See the controversial and INSANE final 10 minutes of the special session AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Madonna Dons Cub Scout Uniform And Presents Anderson Cooper With The Vito Russo Award At The 2013 GLAAD Media Awards!

This was EVERYTHING we could have wanted her to say at such an important event - and so much more!

At last night's 24th Annual GLAAD Media Awards, held in New York, Anderson Cooper was the recipient of the "Vito Russo Award," which is given to an "openly lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender media professional who has made a significant difference in promoting equality!"

While that itself is incredible and exciting news, Madonna was on hand to present her longtime friend with his honor, and donned a complete Cub Scout uniform for the occasion!

Ch-ch-check out her rousing, articulate and thoughtful speech, during which she called on the Boy Scouts of America to end its ban on gay scouts and scout leaders, criticized the Russian government for its imprisonment of Pussy Riot, and called for a much-needed social revolution here in the US of A (above)!

INCREDIBLE!

All we have to say is that Anderson is one lucky silver fox!

Her words have so much fire, passion, and most important of all, TRUTH, behind them, and we couldn't be more proud to have such a powerful ally in the fight for equal rights and a better tomorrow!

You can find the full list of awards and recipients from the ceremony…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Stevie Nicks Wants To Know Where All Of Women's Rights Have Gone! Quote Of The Day!

Filed under: Music MinutePolitikSad SadStevie Nicks

"We fought very hard for feminism, for women's rights. What I'm seeing today is a very opposite thing. I don't know why, but I see women being put back in their place. And I hate it. We're losing all we worked so hard for, and it really bums me out."

Chris Brown Is Not Welcome In Guyana!

Filed under: RihannaChris Brown

Chris Brown may have settled his club issues, but he’s got some others that aren't as easy to solve.

The Don’t Judge Me singer seems to have been judged by the women of Guyana and found wanting. He was supposed to perform on December 26th, but the gig has been cancelled after protests by women’s rights groups and lawmakers.

Even though Rihanna has clearly forgiven him for beating her, Breezy is still unwelcome in Guyana, so he backed out of the performance.

He’s gained back a lot of his public appeal, but it will probably be awhile before everyone feels good about him.

At least the back-on-again couple can spend more time together.
