It's been a week, and -- well, I'm more convinced than ever that, no, we didn't.

It's been a week, and all I have are questions:

How do I fight what I cannot name?

How do I effectively oppose what I cannot publicly address? Even when it manifests itself in public?

Without being called "self-hating" and accused of giving people "license to be racist," by my own?

This debacle did not occur because of only the black vote. It was mainly the straight vote. That is why we are gonna win. EVENTUALLY. Stop putting yourself through unnecessary angst. Attack the hate of others not your similarities separate from that.

How do you fight that which you cannot name?

How do you effectively oppose that which you cannot publicly address?

Answer: You don't. And it persists.

Guess what's on Obama's agenda? DADT repeal disappeared, and so did DOMA's repeal. Now, only ENDA and the Matthew Sheppard Act.

Let the disillusionment begin!

Lucrece,

Could you provide a link to a site with that information?

Thanks,
Robyn

Oh cynicism thy name is Lucrece!

Obama hasn't even taken office yet and you sitting back with that "I told you so" look on your face.

Yeah, LGBT civil rights are important, but did you stop to think that there are issues threatening the country right that have to be dealt with immediately because they effect the very stability of our country?

I talking about things like the economic crisis, the healthcare crisis and the war in Iraq. Those issues may not be LGBT specific, but they will damn sure have a huge impact on LGBT people.

Just because Obama hasn't said that he is making LGBT issues the first thing he deals with on his first day in the White House some 70 days from now does not mean that our issues are not a priority.

Just because....

ahh...the voice of an enabler...Just because we were told that we must elect Obama first before we can expect anything to change for us doesn't mean we should think that support MUST translate into anything tangible.

The point was only to get him elected, Lucrece. Now the Log Cabin Democrats will willingly sit in the back of the bus with their blindfolds on and applaud their new leader for the next four years.

Don't interrupt the delusional.

Yeah, I don't heed much of the drivel that comes out of Crawford's mind. Zealotry does not interest me.
