Are my eyes deceiving me?
Am I actually seeing something in the re-animated Washington Blade that makes sense?!?!?!?!?
The thrill of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” repeal has left some LGBT rights advocates whipped into a froth about continued advances, despite the outcome of the mid-term elections.
Suddenly, we’re expecting the president to endorse marriage equality in the State of the Union address.
“Why not save everyone on both sides of the debate a lot of time, trouble and money by approving the entire gay rights agenda,” wrote Dan Savage in a Sunday New York Times piece.
Savage should stick to sex advice. As Rep. Barney Frank told the Blade in November, there’s zero chance of any pro-LGBT advances so long as Rep. John Boehner holds the gavel.
Holy braincell enemas, Batman! I think there’s something in the re-animated Washington Blade that makes sense!
You mean there’s more?
In the same item?
Hmmmm….I wonder if that’s a good thing or a bad thing?
In the meantime, patience is a virtue. We should be working to advance marriage rights in Maryland and Rhode Island; to prevail in a number of court cases on marriage, adoption and trans rights; and to fight GOP efforts to repeal marriage equality in New Hampshire. There’s plenty of work to do and there will be victories in the next two years. Just don’t look to Congress to deliver them.
Why did I need to ask?
Of course, there’s nothing about alleviating the gay-manufactured inequality between GLBs and Ts in Maryland.
It is, after all, Queer Channel Media – Chris Crain or no Chris Crain.
