Still Missing The Mark, President Obama

At another time in the past this may have seemed impressive, now it just seems like a weak effort to try appease the LGBT community. President Obama has been verbally friendly towards the LGBT community. His Administration has been more opened and supportive, but it certainly has not been enough. He has been a proponent  of DOMA ( marriage defined in government as only between a man and a woman) which only confirms his own homophobic bias and consequently shows us that the LGBT community will truly never be equal in his eyes. Ultimately, we must endeavor to either change his mind or put in politicians like Gavin Newsom or others who have stood up and been the kind of leaders in the 21st Century who truly believe in civil rights for all.

Quote from the Feast of Fun:

“Sadly, many regular benefits afforded to opposite marriage couples won’t apply because of the Defense of Marriage Act and Don’t Ask Don’t Tell”
