(This is where the new stuff--the stuff that wasn't posted at my personal journal--starts.)

Sidetrackedery, n.: the weird, interesting, and/or fun stuff I find via my ever-behindness in my LJ flist, from Twitter, emails, going back through friends' LJs, and elsewhere.

:: From the above link, The Millennial Generation. Been saying this for like two years now--we're gonna pass stuff like marriage equality because more and more progressives keep turning 18 and registering to vote! (from americanprogress.org):
One likely consequence of the Millennial generation’s rise is an end to the so-called culture wars that have marked American politics for the last several decades. Acrimonious disputes about family and religious values, feminism, gay rights, and race have frequently crippled progressives’ ability to make their case to the average American. Millennials support gay marriage, take race and gender equality as givens, are tolerant of religious and family diversity, have an open and positive attitude toward immigration, and generally display little interest in fighting over the divisive social issues of the past. Almost two-thirds agree that religious faith should focus more on promoting tolerance, social justice, and peace in society, and less on opposing abortion or gay rights.

Right. The fuck. ON.
