This article made me chuckle. Gay rights groups are getting a little impatient with President McDreamy, as he hasn’t even addressed the GLBT community yet during his administration, except to make a small, offhand joke about “making it official” with a male colleague.
More chuckle-worthy is the consternation of these groups over his position, which was reversed. Apparently Mr. Obama was in favor of same-sex marriage sometime around 1996, but has since made a U-turn. One wonders why, especially since he’s liberal even for his party.
But now, pro-gay friends and neighbors are hoping “his position will evolve“, and reflect the values of the next generation.
He evolved before, right? And that wasn’t ok. But now he needs to evolve again- just in the correct direction. Oh, that pesky evolution. So hard to predict! So hard to control! You never know what you’ll end up with when you pin your hopes on a theory.
Here’s hoping he waits for a few millenia before he evolves again.
