Model, philanthropist and son of both Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver is jailbait, until September. After bio-daddy’s extra-marital family creation became public, Patrick has changed his last name to Shriver. I am sure there are plenty of other daddies willing to adopt him. (via Dan Savage).
Kate pegging Prince Will on commemorative plate
Congratulations, Kate & Will on your nuptials. To commemorate you can buy this “loving and humorous” plate. Click through to see the full NSFW (mom, that means “not safe for work”) full image. (Via Dan Savage’s blog).
Feed your flock: chips & soda
And now for some Western spirituality. This video was noted by both Dan Savage and Joe.My.God. Dan taunts, “Bill Donahue! To the Batshit Mobile!” But I am not sure Catholic extremists care about salt-n-soda makers the way they care about the gays.
It Gets Better, even for Ex-Gays

US soldiers in Afghanistan make Lady Gaga tribute video
I have never felt so close to the US soldiers in Afghanistan. Flame on, dear soldiers! (Via Savage Love).
Don’t Ask, Don’t Give Online Pledge
This only applies to US readers, but you are all invited to read a provocative “Don’t Ask, Don’t Give” pledge to hold the Democratic Party to its promise to treat all Amercians equally. Thanks to Dan Savage for spreading the word.
To quote from the online petition:
In the last two weeks alone, we were angered that the Obama administration continued to defend DOMA in the courts — last June, the administration’s lawyers even compared loving gay relationships to incest and pedophilia — and we were saddened that the White House and the Democratic party refused to help us defeat anti-gay ballot initiatives in Maine and Washington state. LGBT Americans, our families, and our friends kept our promise at the ballot box, we now expect President Obama to keep his in the White House.
Levi Johnston in Playgirl
X-Alaska governor and x-VP candidate Sarah Palin’s former future son-in-law cashes in and irritates his baby’s grandmother.
My favorite reaction is Dan Savage’s excellent unsolicited advice:
And, psst, Levi? If you did that Playgirl shoot only to drive your former future mother-in-law crazy—and if that was your plan, kiddo, it worked—imagine how much crazier she’ll get if you do a little gay-for-pay porn. Just sayin’.
Moe in America: Saddlebacking
Who says there’s no moe in Amerika? In honor of Rick Warren, pastor of Saddleback Church, popular homophobe, and inaugural preacher, Dan Savage has created a new word, saddlebacking.
Saddlebacking: sad•dle•back•ing \ˈsa-dəl-ˈba-kiŋ\ vb [fr. Saddleback Church] (2009): the phenomenon of Christian teens engaging in unprotected anal sex in order to preserve their virginities
After attending the Purity Ball, Heather and Bill saddlebacked all night because she’s saving herself for marriage.
