The Four Season Resort in Irving, Texas, has cancelled the reservation of Uganda President Yoweri Museveni after an article in The Dallas Voice highlighted Uganda’s gay rights abuses.
As one of the commentors on the article said, “When Texas says no to you because of your attitude towards LGBT people, it is time you rethink your laws.” And I couldn’t agree more.
Granted, I’m fully aware that these hotel chains (The Four Seasons and Gaylord Texan Resort owned by Marriott) aren’t based in Texas, but still, they’re likely run by native Texans. But regardless, it’s nice to see them take a stand about what’s right.
We’re makin headway, y’all!!
YEHAW FUCK YEAH
Seriously?? This is huge like if Texas can do it, all of those other states certainly can.JAACK THEY DID THE THING
SUCH excellent news! :D
The Texas Eighth District Court of Appeals has ruled that the religious beliefs of a Christian couple do not exempt them from the state educational standards.
This was too funny not to share, lol. I’m most definitely not laughing at people’s religious beliefs, but thinking that they allow you not to comply with national standards? Yeah, no. Does the bible not say render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s? I know that’s technically referring to taxes, but I feel like it can be extrapolated to things like government standards, too.
A judge has ruled that two fathers, a legally married same-sex couple who each biologically fathered one of two twin boys, cannot have their names appear on their own children’s birth certificates.
Two Texas doctors say a hospital caved to anti-choice activist “demands” when it revoked their privileges because they provide legal abortion care.
Seriously, Texas? Wow.
Springtime in Texas
Took a drive into the hill country to see the wildflowers and found this little spot at sunset. I could have stayed here for hours.
Mmm bluebonnets and wildflowers there are aplenty out in the plains!

Taken from BuzzFeed, but it was too funny not to post it all out to make sure y’all saw it!
When having bad personal days, I need to remind myself of all the good happening in the world.
Today, February 26, 2014, U.S. District Judge Orlando Garcia ruled that laws in Texas prohibiting same-sex couples from marrying are unconstitutional. The judge also issued a stay on the ruling pending appeal.
Way to go, Texas!!! Definitely excited to see this out of a Southern state!!! Even if the whole state isn’t Southern! This is great!!!
I love this, especially coming out of country music.
wake up america
this is to educate my non-American followers. This really is how the US sees itself. (and yes, 95% of the time, Florida = WHAT?!)
My only real critique of this is that West and North Texas aren’t really Southern, they’re Southwestern. And neither is West Virginia. The whole reason it exists is because they identified with the North during the American Civil War.
Junior Matt Korman didn’t want to hide this side of himself any longer — and he wanted to date openly. Read the email he sent to his team.
It’s always nice to see people building up and supporting their teammates, especially when it’s not always expected. Congrats, Matt!
