dan savage goproud mitt romney endorsement Say What Now - 6371878656

Less than a week after Dan Savage tweeted "The GOP's house fa**ots grab their ankles, right on cue. Pathetic," in reaction to GOProud's endorsement of Mitt Romney, the controversial and outspoken founder of the It Gets Better movement has doubled down, comparing the endorsement to substance abuse:

Mixing it up with GOProud last week got me thinking about why a gay man would endorse -- much less "commit significant resources" to help elect -- a man who has pledged, if elected, to do as much harm as he possibly can to gay people. I mean, what kind of fa**ot supports a politician who would do him harm? Oh, right: the same kind of fa**ot who would harm himself with drugs or alcohol or sex. The kind of gay men who don't like themselves or other gay people much. But while most self-loathing, self-destructive gay men are content to abuse booze, drugs, or d*ck, the self-hating GOProud boys abuse themselves with politics. And just like gay meth addicts who aren't satisfied harming only themselves, the boys at GOProud aren't satisfied harming only themselves. They want to harm other gay people -- they want to harm all gay people -- by getting Mitt Romney elected. And just like your meth-addicted friend who pushed the drug on you, or your drunk friend who mocked you for stopping at four, or your sexually out-of-control friend who insisted that you were a prude if you didn't play... with him down at the bathhouse, the GOProud boys want you to abuse yourself the same way that they're abusing themselves. They want you to vote for Mitt Romney for the same reason your meth-addicted pal wanted you to use that stupid drug. Because they're damaged.

Too far?

Heads up -- grainy childbirth video is vaguely graphic.

In 2010, scientists captured the first MRI of a woman giving birth, but only still images were available. Now researchers have released the video version:

The video captures the active second stage of labor as the mother expels the fetus. The technique, called cinematic MRI, takes repeated images of the same slice of the body before joining them up to create an ultra-detailed video.

The video MRI is intended to help doctors manage complications during labor and delivery.

Kentucky basketball phenom Anthony Davis, likely to be snapped up by the New Orleans Hornets with the No. 1 pick in Thursday's NBA Draft, has trademarked his famous unibrow -- he now owns the rights to the phrases "Fear The Brow" and "Raise The Brow."

"I don't want anyone to try to grow a unibrow because of me and then try to make money off of it," Davis explains. "Me and my family decided to trademark it because it's very unique."

Gad Beck, activist and last known gay Jewish Holocaust survivor, died Sunday. He was 88.

During World War II, Beck joined an underground resistance movement to fight the Nazi regime. In a daring act of heroism, he was able to rescue his boyfriend from a deportation center by impersonating a Hitler Youth.

After the war, Beck spent his life educating and advocating for Judaism and gay rights, and was the subject of a documentary in 2006. Friends lauded Beck for his signature wit and openness.

Reflecting on his life, Beck said, "God doesn't punish for a life of love."

The Summer Games are just months away, and the top goalball athletes are in full beast mode.

Wait -- goalball?

Originally created to rehabilitate World War II veterans, goalball is a fast-paced, high-impact Paralympic sport for the visually impaired in which competitors must rely on sound and touch to win.

A new documentary, the aptly named Shot in the Dark, captures the down-and-dirty as U.S. athletes train for nationals. Don't miss the trailer -- it's equal parts captivating and moving.
