Word came down today that the biggest name in independent news and information on the sport of flat track (and banked track) roller derby has called off it's final jam. For the past seven years, Derby News Network and its predecessor Leadjammer.com have been lifelines that tied the derby community together. In the old days, I used to be a frequent commenter in the articles. Many of you disagreed with what I had to say but hopefully it made you think about the issues of the day from a different perspective.
Today was the first day that same sex marriage licenses were available in Delaware. To all of those Delaware sweethearts out there, today is your day!
It disturbs me though that there are some on the far right who are just too upset that they did not get their way at the Supreme Court this past week and now they want to enshrine man-woman marriage in our US Constitution. I feel like we are back in the 50s again with segregation. We are in a civil rights battle and the GLB community is winning. Just give it more time an we will be there.
It's too bad that gay community keeps stepping on trans people on their way there.
