  1. Singapore Library Destroying LGBT-Friendly Childrens Books At Homophobe’s Request

    Sir, I believe you are overdue.

    In spite of protests and petitions from over four thousand concerned patrons, the Singapore National Library Board is moving ahead on plans to pulp three picture-books that depict non-traditional families--all at the urging of a single bigot.

  2. Barilla Is Making 3D-Printed Pasta, Because Apparently They Think That’s Cooler Than Not Being Homophobic

    "Just don't give any to your gay friends!" - Barilla, probably. [citation needed]

    Remember Barilla? You know, the pasta company that refuses to use same-sex couples in their advertising and said that "gays can eat another brand of pasta?" Well, the very same people have decided that it would be a brilliant PR move to deflect from their homophobia by starting to make 3D-printed pasta. Foolproof!

  4. Guest Post: Examining One Reaction to the James Gunn Controversy

    Essay

    Shortly after James Gunn issued his sincere apology for an ambiguously satirical post on his blog that was rediscovered by fans in the wake of his appointment as the director of Marvel Studio's Guardians of the Galaxy, The Mary Sue received a letter in our inbox from a writer for another major entertainment blog.

Things were delayed a bit by the holidays and revisions, but without further ado, here's her post.

  5. So Here’s the Slut-Shaming, Homophobic Post on Superheroes by… the Director of Guardians of the Galaxy

    Today in Depressing

    Generally, I don't make a habit of making news posts about things that happened on the Internet more than a year ago. Unless, of course, it managed to slip everyone's attention and is just blowing up now. I also don't make a habit of writing news posts about random people on the internet being jerks. Unless, of course, they're not random people at all, but people with significant power over either legal matters or the media we consume. The case of "The 50 Superheroes You Most Want to Have Sex With," or rather, the content of the commentary on the post of that name by writer/director James Gunn last year. See, in between last February and now, Gunn was tapped as the director for the first new set of characters to be introduced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Phase 2, The Guardians of the Galaxy.
