I hear this place is restricted, Wang, so don't tell 'em you're Jewish, okay?In a post yesterday I accidentally linked an article about Maine's recently defeated gay marriage whatnot, which made no sense, but since I brought it up, I suppose I should say something about it. Also, Mr. Henley finds Renowned Anal-Retentive Crossing Guard and Andrew Sullivan Doppleganger-Clone Rod Dreher opining that Attention Must Be Paid! To Him! Before the fags take over. Which, he admits, they undoubtedly will.
There is really no sense in bemoaning recent setbacks to the ongoing quest for gay marriage, as it is so certain ultimately to succeed. If a bare majority in rural Maine came out to overturn it (while ratifying medical marijuana--stay classy, America!), then the future of its prohibition looks decidedly short. People of my generation and younger simply do not give a shit about faggotry, and if there is a threat to the ultimate extension of gay marriage to the nation as a whole, it is not the Gay, but the Marriage, whose inexorable decline as a social institution we can only cheer and hope to speed along. Indeed, the focus of what now passes for a gay rights movement on the marriage issue is a source of constant consternation to me. How focused we've become on getting into the country club instead burning it to the ground, or, at very least, trashing to pool! I mean, I suppose that in some post-ironic sense it is wonderful that two aging dykes may yet have an opportunity to participate fully in a major proprietary institution of the patriarchy. With free Goldman Sachs stock for all and a unified bourgeois hatred of labor unions, we'll really be getting somewhere.
