Today on The Signorile Show!

3:35pm ET - Yesterday, The Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries (BOLI) announced that the owners of Sweet Cakes by Melissa violated a state nondiscrimination ordinance when they refused to sell a wedding cake to a lesbian couple in January 2013.  Joining us today to discuss the case and how much in damages they might have to pay is Zack Ford, editor of ThinkProgress LGBT at the Center for American Progress Action Fund.

4:35pm ET - On May 23, 2014, in Isla Vista, California, near the campus of University of California, Santa Barbara, 22-year-old Elliot Rodger went on a killing spree and claimed the lives of six people and injured thirteen others before committing suicide.  Soon after he was dead it became known that he had left behind a chilling 137-page manifesto suffused with a bitter misogyny and language commonly found in online men's rights forums.  Joining us today to discuss the Men’s Rights movement, its methods, and its founding is Mariah Blake, a senior reporter at Mother Jones who went inside the movement and looked at the army of misogynists and trolls it has spawned, and explains how an ex-feminist once hailed by Gloria Steinem become a hero to the haters?
