    The Welcome Wagon

    I just introduced myself to the new neighbors. We had a nice chat.

    However, I was wearing my Ruth Bader Ginsburg t-shirt, so if I should go missing, look next door.

    This Week's Quote

    The far-right 6-3 majority on the Supreme Court is on a rampage against basic freedoms currently enjoyed by the American people. In his concurring opinion in Dobbs, Justice Clarence Thomas gave us a heads-up that the court is next coming for the ability of same-sex couples to get married. I am one of only nine openly gay members of this body. For me, this is personal.

    Man Out of Time

    Sen. Ted Cruz said this weekend that the U.S. Supreme Court was "clearly wrong" when it legalized same-sex marriage.

    That sounds to me like a man who's running for president.

    Against Herbert Hoover.

    Frustration on the Fourth

    The fact that the Supreme Court just took away a constitutional right has made this a tricky 4th of July. It's hard to celebrate Independence Day when we American women have lost a chunk of our independence.

    Perhaps at summer's end Americans will celebrate Labor Day by firing people.

    A New Old Fight

    I'm a 58-year-old lesbian. An IKEA bookcase has a better chance of getting pregnant than I do.

    Nonetheless, for many reasons, today's overturning of Roe v. Wade means I'm about to join the battle for reproductive rights.

    The spirit's willing, even if the body's cranky.

    Gallup Says

    Gallup conducted its annual Values and Beliefs poll last month, and found that 71 percent of Americans support legal same-sex marriage, the highest number ever recorded.

    The main demographic holdout against gay marriage? Weekly churchgoers.

    And those who list their employment as Supreme Court justice.

    This Week's Quote

    I must admit that, as a non-American, I wouldn't have bet on the USA to be the first Western country to turn back the clock so drastically on women's rights, and this b/c you decided a reality TV star was more Presidential material than a competent Secretary of State.

    Making History

    On Thursday the U.S. Senate confirmed Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court. It was a historic day, as she became the first Black woman elevated to the highest court in the land.

    It was historic for another reason, too. South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, because he wasn't wearing a tie, had to cast his "no" vote against Jackson from the Senate cloakroom.

    It's official. Lindsey Graham was really in the closet.

    We get it, Senator Cornyn; you're still mad at gay marriage for taking away none of your rights.

    The Latest in the Potty Wars

    The Supreme Court today declined to wade into the issue of which school bathrooms transgender students should use. That means the appeals court victory of transgender former student Gavin Grimm still stands.

    This is great news for trans kids.

    It's also great news for the planners of Donald Trump's next rally. Conservative activists will seize, as usual, the opportunity to fearmonger around bathrooms. They're nothing if not toilet trained.
