John Oliver on Transgender Rights

Is it anyone’s business what transgender people look like naked? We don’t express such desires to anyone else unless we really want to have sex with them.

15 Notable Buildings and Monuments Lit Up by Rainbows

On Friday, June 26th, the United States Supreme Court ruled in the case of Obergefell v.

It's number one on a list I posted at mental_floss, but it was far from the only such display.
