  •  THIS! SO MUCH THIS: (3+ / 0-)
    It's instructive to see how he framed things to serve the interests of his movement.

    LGBTs deal with that shit so much. The people who want to erase us so bad pretty much resort to anything to do it. This is especially evident in NOM's  race-baiting. The right is obviously extremely racist but NOM has tried, in NY and elsewhere, to say they're the real defenders of black civil rights and that gays are trying to co-opt them, and even worse stuff than that.

    They don't really believe this and would probably vote to hurt AAs next time they get the chance, but it works for them in certain moments. (Which is not to say it was successful as a tactic or that AAs 'fell for it', there's no evidence that anyone buys that race-baiting crap.)

    "No doubt many are offended by the idea of same-sex marriage. But, of course, those who don’t like the idea of same-sex marriage don’t have to marry someone of the same sex." - Prof. Erwin Chemerinsky
