Several of the players also presented awards, including Abby’s intro to Caitlyn Jenner‘s receiving of the Arthur Ashe Courage Award.

Scarlett Byrne and Teressa Liane have been cast as Norma and Mary Louise, aka the new lesbian heretics on The Vampire Diaries. They are also described as “nasty, nasty girls.” Hypable also reports that ‘Norma has a’“sly sense of humor,’ whilst Mary Louise is described to be very opinionated and have a ‘strong point of view which she isn’t afraid to express.'” But will Norma appear on toast? That’s the real question.

Philadelphia Archbishop Charles J. Chaput is “grateful” a lesbian teacher was fired from her position at a Catholic high school. Do you think kissing in front of his office would help?

Now that equal marriage is the law of the land, same-sex couples continue to fight for the right to their own children. Yesterday, a federal judge ordered that Utah must list the names of a both moms on their baby’s birth certificate. A win for Angie and Kami Roe will hopefully mean a win for lesbian couples seeking the same in Arkansas and elsewhere.

“I got hit on all the time. I was trying to talk business and they were trying to date me. I’ve gotten very good at navigating, but women shouldn’t have to.”

Brazilian MMA fighter Jessica Andrade says she’s been out her entire career.

“I’ve always made it very clear that I’m a homosexual. I like women. But that’s never affected me when fighting or in my personal life. I think that every interaction, in or out of fighting, is an opportunity to show that we are normal people. Our behavior isn’t defined by our sexuality. My way of communicating and caring for people, will always be the same. Being attracted to the same gender doesn’t really make us different.”

She also won a fight last night against Sarah Moras.

Comic book Zombie Lesbians from Outer Space is written by a dude, who explains his fascination with girl-on-girl:

“Unlike the hero of our story, Ace, I don’t watch a lot of porn. My imagination can take care of any arousal duties when needed. But, like many guys out there, the thought of two girls rubbing and kissing and fondling one another is a big turn on. Lesbians. Lesbians who ultimately want to be finished off by the real protagonist of the fantasy: me. I mean, yeah, it’s absurd. So I thought more and more about the absurdity. Not just why and how lesbians would have any interest in the male reproductive organ, but also why there were so many people out there against – and disgusted by – the idea of homosexuality, yet still were turned on by the female version of it.”

I would probably not read this because, EW.
