I agree that the sexual preference of a private individual should be private.
However, she has chosen to enter the political arena.
If her sexual preference is none of our business, by that same token, the sexual preference of some thrice-married politician lobbying to protect the
sanctity of marriage is none of our business.
If any discussion of sexual preference becomes taboo in politics, how will one call out the apparent hypocrisy of people like anti-gay rights
proponent George Rekers?
How exactly will the insistence that sexual orientation not be part of public discourse help the residents of the 31 states where discrimination
against gays is legal. Any refusal to broach this subject only helps enforce the status quo, leaving those people in the same American hell into which
they were born.
Intentional or not, viewing discussions of sexual preference as either bigotry or as gays shouting from the rooftops essentially serves the same
Out of sight , out of mind.
