    firsthand. I've seen a politician adopt sort of an "I'm really really progressive, (even though I am totally conservative economically and fiscally) because I support marriage equality! And, btw, I'm gay myself! That's the same thing as being progressive, isn't it?"  

    /facepalm Uh, no, Senator, it just means you're gay. There have been plenty of gay conservatives in the past; there have even been gay Republicans. As glad as I am that you support marriage equality and as glad as I am that it's possible for an openly gay person to be a senator, no it does not make you automatically a progressive.
