I have been rather silent on Obama's complete and utter abandonment of LGTB issues. All the promises and declarations of support have turned out, so far, to be wholly empty. Until last week, that is, when his administration argued in court in support of the constitutionality of the so-called "Defense of Marriage Act" and therein compared gay relationships to incestuous ones. I know he wants to be "bi-partisan" and all, but using failed Republican anti-gay talking points is really crossing the line, don't you think?
So I was delighted to read this blog entry at Americablog. It ends with this righteous demand: "No more empty statements of 'support.' No more explanations as to how powerless you are to get anything done. We want action. You're the leader of the free world. Start acting like it." A-fucking-men.
PS. Also check out another important and informative entry at Americablog.
