“It’s not really about equality.”
McKenzie’s compelling article examines some of the nuances of Obama’s support – who is valued, and who isn’t. She writes,
So, basically, what the President is saying is that same-sex couples who are in relationships that look a certain way (monogamous, for example) should be able to have all the rights of straight people. [...] What about those of us, queer and straight, who aren’t into monogamy but are into committed relationships?
Highly recommended. You can read the rest of McKenzie’s article here.
