See that right there? That’s my work being cited in the Family Equality Council, et al. amicus brief submitted to the United States Supreme Court in support of marriage equality. Needless to say, I’m pretty happy about it, a lot of late nights went in to the project when the four of us put it together […]
Florida has been updated to blue on the Wikipedia marriage map. I’ll blog more on this later but for now I’ll say that it’s hard to believe this is really here. I keep waiting for another shoe to drop, for Florida to be Florida and screw this up somehow, but Pam Bondi finally admitted defeat, […]
My non-profit, the Coalition for Responsible Home Education, is featured in a front page, above the fold New York Times article today. Needless to say, this is all a bit surreal. Hopefully the story will help build momentum to ensure that homeschool children everywhere are protected.
Here are my top ten posts from 2014. One thing I realized while compiling this list is that I really need to blog more, so here’s to a more productive 2015. 10. #DefendTheDuggars (Sort of) I’ve said it before on social media and I’ll say it again here. The mocking of Duggar children is not […]
Dear Flip, I don’t know if you remember me or not, but there was a time back in the 1990s when you were on a first name basis with my parents. If you don’t know me you should, my photo is on the cover of one of your Operation Save America brochures and the cover […]
I sat here crying as I watched Malala Yousafzai talk about wanting to get an education and follow her dreams. She talks about how she decided to speak up against the Taliban because she didn’t want to be locked away in her house with no education, forced to marry at 13 or 14, and I […]
As you’ve probably noticed, I’ve been on a hiatus from any kind of serious blogging until the bar exam. Well, except for last night’s “Mark Driscoll or Tyler Durden” posts, that is. Turns out that when you’re running on that much adrenaline from stress it’s not so easy to fall asleep even when you’re exhausted. […]
BRB, watching the World Cup. I’m tired of watching people be terrible, for the next few days I’m going to be focusing on watching the Beautiful Game and reserving my outrage for officiating and the inevitable point where I start demanding that the US fire their coach.
I’m not sure if two examples counts as a trend, but over the last few weeks both HSLDA founder and Patrick Henry College chancellor Michael Farris and well-known homeschool mommy blogger Karen “that mom” Campbell have both suggested that the blame, as it were, for LGBT homeschoolers lies at the feet of patriarchy. Under this […]
Sixteen years after I took my high school graduation photo posing with a Con Law casebook, today I walked across the stage to get my JD. I’ve taken the circuitous route to get here, detouring into computer science and teaching in Vietnam, but in the end I made it to law school after all. I […]
