Inexcusable waffling continues

I cannot sign off on this piece enough: Liberals have a tendency (much more pronounced in 2007 and 2008 but still evident) to imagine that Barack Obama is just as liberal as them. Because he's obviously smart, because he dabbled with genuine leftism in his youth, and because he opposed…

And that’s a wrap, folks

If you haven't seen this yet, it's kind of amazing—opponents of gay marriage in California are trying to appeal the decision overturning Prop 8 on the grounds that the judge is gay and so can't be allowed to rule on gay issues. Amazing because they're always denying this is about…

Abortion vs. gay marriage, short term vs. long term victories

Steph Herold, writing at Feministe, put up a post that’s been gnawing on my brain for a few days, and I want to post a couple of points arguing with Steph and a larger point offering an answer to her question. Steph asks why the gay rights movement is ahead…

NOM’s Maggie Gallagher whines: don’t blame me for gay teen suicides

Call the Waaaambulance for the NOM-ster. Actually, Maggie, I haven’t been thinking about you much at all, since that summer NOM bus tour was such a raging failure that I dropped you and perpetual flop-sweating Brian Brown down onto my third-tier list of homophobes along with The Peter and Ken…

Extra…Extra…Bush Campaign Chief and Former RNC Chair Ken Mehlman: “I’m gay”

“Ken Mehlman is not gay,” Steve Schmidt, a senior official of the Bush campaign and a friend of Mehlman’s told Jake Tapper, an ABC News correspondent who wrote the piece for the magazine. …One staffer tells Tapper a fact known inside the beltway but not widely reported-that some members of…

The deviance of ‘gay marriage’ to the max: cleaning out the pantry and fridge on a Friday night

For the homobigots out there who are worried about the downfall of marriage if gays and lesbians are allowed to partake in it, let this be an example of how mundane and committed married life can be for some of us working hard on The Homosexual Agenda. My lovely wife…

Gay marriage and the patriarchy shell game

Adam Serwer and Steve Benen have had their fun attacking the logic of Ross Douthat’s incoherent anti-gay marriage column, and now it’s my turn. Douthat is caught up in a trap that catches many, probably most conservatives. The official values, as I’ve said before, or our nation are liberal values.…

Thanks, gay marrieds! Love, straight feminists.

There are many parts of Judge Walker’s decision overturning Prop 8 that are delicious reading, but the most interesting part was how Walker repeatedly stressed that marriage had already changed—that strict gender roles that justified restricted marriage in the past have already gone away. We all know what he’s talking…

Yes, homophobes, your straight neighbors are Doing It

The Sexist reports on this story that PFOX (a major “ex-gay” organization that exists primarily to hoodwink people, especially conservatives with gay relatives, into thinking that it’s a choice) is pushing about a woman who is filing a complaint because her daughter’s “innocence” was destroyed because the girl’s teacher not…

Rep. Steve King: marriage equality ‘is a purely socialist concept’

Sometimes my head just hurts from reading TEH STUPID. Rep. Steve King (R-IA) opened his trap and revealed that his grasp of reality is tenuous at best. Using logic that only someone like Rick Santorum can understand, King went on WingNutDaily radio to discuss the impact marriage equality has been…
