Almost as soon as the red equals signs began cropping up, there were remixes and re-remixes galore.

As you might have noticed, there's been a bit of a movement on Facebook over the past day: Users across the globe are changing their profile pictures to support universal rights and gay marriage.

The Human Rights Campaign's logo, an equals sign that's traditionally yellow on navy blue, transformed to pink on red yesterday as the Supreme Court began hearing arguments on Proposition 8, which defines marriage in California as between a man and a woman only.

Today, the court hears arguments on the Defense of Marriage Act, the federal law that restricts certain benefits from same-sex marriage.

But it's not all so stoic over on Facebook, where almost as soon as the pictures began cropping up, there were remixes and re-remixes galore.

When the owner of the most popular science page on Facebook revealed her identity the other day, the reaction was sadly predictable. "OMG GIRL," came the crescendo of comments from dumbfounded men (and a few women). It was as if Elise Andrew had infiltrated a 19th century scientific conference and suddenly ripped off a fake mustache in front of the assembled muttering menfolk. Cue pipes falling from open mouths. Shock! Awe! A woman!
