The American Family Association is now referring to LGBT people as “g-ys” and same-sex relationships as “h-mos-xuality,” as if these words were expletives, reports Political Research Associates, a nonprofit that tracks the Right. (Or should that be “the R-ght”?)

Meanwhile, the California Supreme Court overturned the state’s ban on marriage equality today. That’s the good news.

The bad? A coalition of socially conservative groups is trying to amend the California constitution to ban same-sex marriage. The measure could appear on the November ballot.

The secretary of state is expected to rule by the end of June whether the conservative groups have gathered enough signatures to bring the measure to a statewide referendum vote, reports The Advocate.
