I guess I just don't get it.

My politics puzzle some and anger others. Apparently I am some sort of Uncle Tom's Log Cabin Republican. As a gay man, I guess I am required by some contract I do not remember signing to focus the entirety of my political energy towards the legalization of gay marriage. I am not allowed to consider fiscal policy, foreign policy, or any other policy above gay marriage. Excuse me for thinking that terrorism and the social security crisis are a little more important than legalizing something I don't really need anyway.

Hmmmmm. What was his name? I guess he was really, really cute. And you either had too many martini's or just felt so comfortable with him... and when you bared your soul just a bit too much... Is that what happened?

Living in Italy, I am becoming an expert on egocentricity. And most gay people I know certainly fall under that heading. But I agree with you to a point. I believe our country has been terribly wounded over the last 8 years, and I'm not putting the entire blame for that on the current administration, but also on a spineless democratic majority.

Still, horror stories abound and these must be addressed as well. I think that you will find that at some point these issues will matter to you, because they will affect you, or someone you care deeply about.

There must be balance, Pink, in all things, or we are lost.
