Vitter and Craig's Marriage Amendment

Enough goofing around with pretty princesses. My piece, "Vitter and Craig's Marriage Amendment... and Now for the Punchline" is on gaywired today.

I scribbled a few comments over at Gaywired. Great article, and it raises questions, fundamentally interesting ones.

I really do believe that a winning strategy, besides reaching out and connecting to neighbors who will be mostly decent people, is "we will, we will mock you." Mind you, neighbors who have a big stake in maintaining authoritarian structures (e.g., school administrators, church deacons) might be expected to be more comfortable (within the setting of those institutions) acting out of their role requirements than out of their desires and expectations to be good neighbors and good human beings.

A little humor might loosen people up enough that they can act like people instead of empty suits in roles.

Just jabbering. As always, you've started me thinking.

those two moral jokes are total scumbags! will be nice to see them both kicked out of congress. then they can go back to their second lives of sneaking around outside of THEIR marriages.

It just gets funnier and funnier everyday. Hopefully it is a sacrifice and those two bozo's will get replaced in office by others more fit for the job at hand.

Great article, Sara. Did you see Anna Quindlen's essay in Newsweek a few weeks ago, titled something like "We're all the same people"? Really good so see support like that from straight allies.

Great point, Bob. It's also more fun to laugh than to scream in fury - and usually more effective.

Anyway, I don't think the higher-up Republicans really care one way or another about marriage equality. They just use it as a wedge to split the masses, so that they can continue to plunder their supporters and Democrats alike with fascist economic policy. These bozos are probably just sacrificial lambs ... er, goats... er, well... pond scum.
