Today Obama signed a pitiful “concession” to the queer community, extending partial benefits to same-sex partners of government employees. It’s a pittance, and it was meant to lure our community back in after many an egregious slight.
The Family Equality Council is encouraging folks to speak out to the president, so I wrote a little note. Please do the same if you’re moved. In writing, I thought mainly about the message that my boy gets from these half-a##ed actions.
(and here’s where that lovely note would go, but I went and copied the link in my haste, thus losing my lovely note forever. Probably for the best. But do have a look at the site and speak out.)
