      Congratulations senator, welcome to the real world. Just remember that there is never a wrong time to do the right thing.

      This has got to be the simplest, most unintentionally elegant way a man has come out in a long time. My hat goes off.

      I admire him but I’d really like to know if he’s a Dem or Republican because if he’s Republican, he should get even more credit.

      @sangsue: he’s a Democrat.

      Very cool. Good for him–and Arizona. This is the great thing that can happen when bigotry is forced out into the open.

      Bravo for him, but I’m still kinda upset by what he said. He said “‘Wow. This bill affects me. It affects me directly.” Every Senator should approach every bill with the attitude of “this bill affects me directly”, because a Senator represents ALL people of his/her state. Were fighting for our rights with people who don’t understand what it means to be LGBT because they are not LGBT so it doesn’t “affect them directly” (except for the perceived religious persecution). I wish not only senators but more everyday people would put themselves in our shoes and feel how bills/laws of discrimination “affect us all directly”.
