To protest the president’s slowly “evolving” attitudes on marriage equality, last night Dan Savage wore a microscopic pin no bigger than a nickel to the White House’s Pride celebration. The pin had even tinier letters spelling “Evolve Already” on it. This eensy-weensy protest from a man who once handed Republican presidential hopeful Gary Bauer a saliva-coated pen in hopes of giving him the flu?
Savage said, “[The President] says he’s evolving, I believe him. I want to hurry him along. We can scream and yell and be dicks and wear buttons (and still eat Obama’s cupcakes and drink his champagne). We need to keep the pressure on and take ‘yes’ for an answer. I’m not one of the gay activists furious at the president because he’s not out on the furthest limb.”
Savage also predicted Obama’s evolution on gay marriage would be complete in February, 2013. Though sadly the Mayan calendar has set the world to end in 2012, so none of us will be around to see it.
