Following up on my two posts from last week:

Florida, Queer Adoptions, and the reek of George A. Rekers & a cast of cronies
Florida Queer Adoptions Post follow up, some theory, and some clarifications

Friday Florida’s Attorney General Bill McCollum announced that the state would not be appealing the recent appellate court decision that declared Florida’s gay [...]

Florida’s Brood Mare amendment to its “parental notice of abortion” bill

Leave it to Florida legislators to come up with a bill this misogynistic.
Meet Florida’s HB 1449 and its companion SB 2446.
Naturally, I find the bill in its entirety despicable, woman negating, and showing nothing but contempt for the reproductive autonomy of those deemed minors, but there’s something ’special’ about this particular legislative disaster.
‘Special’ in that [...]

Major new developments unfolded at the end of last week in relation to Arkansas’ ban on Queer and unmarried cohabiting couples prospects of becoming foster or adoptive parents.
I’ve been blogging about the situation in Arkansas for some time now.
First see my earlier posts:

By way of follow up to my earlier post in the wake of the election, Sewing the scarlet “b”- California’s newest bastards, and other abysmal anti-Queer anti-child bastardization, the ACLU has taken Arkansas’ Act 1 to court.
Back on November 4th, 57 [...]

Orson Mozes and the perfect symbiosis

I’m not going to write a great deal about the details of the crimes Mozes is accused of, instead I’d prefer to point readers at this Naples Daily News piece that pretty well serves as a backgrounder, Miami police nab ‘Most Wanted’ suspect who was released in Collier.
Also be sure to also see the earlier [...]

Nebraska- 11 year old Florida dumped Wednesday afternoon, and the NE DHHS case summaries

Another day, another out of state dump, this time, a boy from Florida.
The AP has an article out, just a couple hours old at this point, 11-year-old [...]

Sewing the scarlet “b”- California’s newest bastards, and other abysmal anti-Queer anti-child bastardization

Legal scholars will no doubt be tied up in knots about whether or not California’s prop. 8 will or will not retroactively affect the pre-existing G/L/B/T marriages. But the bottom line is, if Californians eliminated the right of Queer couples to marry (enshrining such in the California Constitution,) at least some of California’s Queer families’ [...]
