Is being gay bad feng shui?
Asian-fusion restaurant, Amber Village, allegedly thinks so according to a lawsuit filed by newlyweds Barrett Greene and Thomas Eng in New York City after their rehearsal dinner was cancelled because apparently gay parties are "especially bad for feng shui."
You know, the flow of energy in a space? Is this some sort of commentary on the snark and shade that the gays are known to throw, because we acknowledge it can change the energy of a room, but not enough to cancel a rehearsal dinner!

This is our nightmare EVERYTIME we check a bag at the airport. You think you're doing the responsible thing and checking your "freakum dress" or that larger than 3 ounce bottle of lube, and you just hope for the best.
Sadly, sometimes you don't get the best, but you probably haven't gotten the worst. That was reserved for Christopher Bridgeman and Martin Borger, a gay couple that got quite the surprise when they went to retrieve their checked baggage in Norfolk, Virginia.
Details after the jump.

If plenty of rest could prevent STDs, we'd take a slut siesta twice an afternoon! Unfortunately, this dangerous misinformation is actually being spread by California's Clovis School District, which is teaching its students that "plenty of rest," going out in groups and a host of other silly ideas prevent STD infections. Not taught by the district as a method of prevention? Condoms!
There will be a lot of surprised teens in Clovis in the coming years, which is why a coalition of group has filed a lawsuit against the school district based on its sex (mis)education program. Details follow.

Sounds like things are getting nasty.
The adult cast members of Modern Family (Sofia Vergara, Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and Eric Stonestreet) have not only rejected a proposed pay raise from the show's producer 20th Century Fox, they're now suing the company to get their contracts voided.
The cast apparently wants way more money. What's it all mean for one our fave gay-friendly shows?

Sounds like someone needs a nap....
Bradlee Dean is seeking D.C. Superior Court Judge Joan Zeldon’s recusal from his case against Rachel Maddow, MSNBC, and the Minnesota Independent, after she ruled that Dean must pay nearly $25,000 in legal fees.
“Judges are to enforce the law, not to defend lawbreakers and then award them money,” Dean said in a statement Tuesday.
