While still celebrating DOMA's end, I'll discuss Julia Serano's speech at Trans Pride in Seattle and will dive into talking about masturbation! I will not be discussing techniques of masturbation, so please do not worry this will be an explicit show. It is not. But I am promoting masturbation as a healthy activity.
Here are the links I discuss in the show:
A History of Marriage by Elizabeth Abbott
Julia Serano and her book Whipping GIrl
I will post more links after the show!
Tonight on Liberal Dan Radio:
After reviewing the headlines and going over some of the silliness that happened in Jefferson Parish last Saturday when it came to tolls and taxes, Liberal Dan Radio will actually start talking about the oral argumetns made in the Supreme Court about DOMA.
That, plus the tweet of the week and words of redneck wisdom, on Liberal Dan Radio: Talk from the left, that's right.
Talk about this show afterwards here:

Join Christopher & Amanda for a show of hot topics. DOMA is officially dead. The supreme court made the historic decision. Hear what the hosts have to say. What does this mean for the country as we move forward for equality? How will lives be impacted? What emotions did the ruling bring about?
The host will also share their thoughts on the unfortunate Paula Dean controversy. Is her career over? Should she be forgiven? Is it ever ok to use racially charged words? Is there a double standard?
Steve Silverman: writer, director, and all around funny man, will join the discussion. He always has something to say...

It is June 26th, an important date in the history of the United States and the history of the LGBTQ rights movement. Three times on June 26th the Supreme Court of the United States has maded a ruling that has deeply effected the progress of that movement. In 2003 SCOTUS made a ruling that introduced the idea of "sexual privacy" as a constitutional issue. In 2013 SCOTUS overturned DOMA S3. And this year, SCOTUS rules in favor of marriage equality nation wide.
RevKess and KaliSara are both ordained ministers recognized by the State of Nebraska and elsewhere. They have been eagerly anticipating a favorable ruling from SCOTUS so that they can offer their services to gay and lesbian couples who wish to be legally bound in matrimony. As Pagans and supporters (or members) of the LGBTQ community both have been willing, ready, and able to perform non-legal ceremonies for their LGBTQ friens, family, or clients who have sought them out for such services. With this decision from SCOTUS hundreds, if not thousands, of Pagan clergy nationwide can now offer those services to those who seek them and for those weddings/marriages to be legally and fully recognized by the United States federal government and the individual states' governments.
The fight for LGBTQ rights if far from over. Some politicians are moving to take steps to protect their constituents from the "evil" of same-sex marriage. Tune in to this edition of PWN to learn more about the SCOTUS ruling and some of the politicians, pundits, and "religious zealots" who are still fighting against the tide of progess in the United States.
Join us as we discuss Dogs on Deployment with Alisa Johnson and how they help foster pets for our service members when they are sent on deployments or out of the country. You can "like" their Facebook page, or sign the Change.org pledge to require bases to change their policies to standardize breed policies on base.
Next we interview Stephen Peters, President of the American Military Partner Association on the repeal of DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act) and how it is impacting gay and lesbian servicemembers lives and what we can expect in the future. We also discuss life as a gay Marine before Don't Ask, Don't Tell was repealed and why families previously denied these benefits deserve them. You can connect with them on Facebook as well.
On Wednesday, March 27th, 2013, the U.S. Supreme Court heard the oral arguments of United States v. Windsor, having heard Hollingsworth v. Perry the preceding day, which resulted later in the year, the overturning of DOMA (the Defense of Marriage Act) and the upholding of the unconstitutionality of California's Proposition 8. Also on March 27tth of 2013, throughout the United States communities rallied in support of Marriage Equality, on which day almost 1,000 people gathered across the street from Palm Springs City Hall. Nicholas Snow was on hand at the event, and to add historical context to the cases before the Supreme Court now, presents an encore of the speeches given that day.
