According to MSNBC.com as of 4 hours ago:
Kansas House Bill 2453, aka “the official LGBT discrimination bill”, has officially been killed in Kansas’s Senate, which means that it will not pass into law.
Instead, what it will do is be booted back to Kansas’s House in order to have revisions made. According to the current House speaker, if it went to vote again, it “probably wouldn’t pass”.
THIS IS VERY GOOD NEWS.
It is also largely in part because of the grass roots petitions on facebook and online, showing lawmakers that citizens are highly opposed to this kind of bill passing.
Good job. We’re good for now.

It’s actually really problematic that some people have gotten so warped by the anonymity of the internet that they think it “isn’t real life”.
it’s also really gross how these people seem to love the idea of an imaginary environment where they’re “allowed” to be racist / sexist / homophobic / etc like
is that really what gets you excited? the prospect of being able to be a bigot without repercussion? hmm.
