The teacher asks: "We are beginning an outreach program to address issues of gender in the pre K-3 grade classroom.

Why haven't gay people gone extinct? Because gays and lesbians nurture their nieces and nephews in order to help their family grow. The bigger the family - the higher likelihood of having gay relatives.

Comedian, actress, and writer - Sarah Silverman - is forceful and blunt when she talks about marriage equality.
On a recent airing of "The View", Sarah said:
"I cannot imagine wanting to get married at this time in America. If you're for equal rights, why would you want to get married? It's like joining a country club that doesn't allow Blacks or Jews. There's no difference."
Silverman was dating talk show host Jimmy Kimmel for some time, and now she's seeing "Family Guy" writer and producer - Alec Sulkin.
