Barack Obama has again been talking about quiltbag rights (i.e. lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, intersex, and allies–still haven’t decided out what the ‘u’ might stand for, though ‘unclassifiable’ might work…), this time saying he supports repeal of DOMA (the Defense of Marriage Act) and Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. At least for now, during Pride Month, he’s stopped openly saying ‘marriage is one man and one woman’ and all the rest of that different-but-equal nonsense. So, yay! Here’s hoping he continues to pay all people due respect as human beings. I’d like to think that’s what he really believes but hasn’t been able to say so for reasons of political expediency. Here’s hoping he wins so we can find out.
I would so like to be wrong about my previous post :)
