    The campus progress article was great, there are a whole lot of issues facing the glbt community that need adressing.

    @Dabq: agreed, good article. The community has a lot on its plate.

    I can’t believe Queerty didn’t mention repealing DADT or DOMA, or marriage equality once in this whole post! I mean, they must be selling us down the river by not talking about it at every turn! Cowards. They take the advertising dollars we generate for them by reading this site, but once the checks clear, we get thrown under the bus. I bet they won’t talk about these penultimate issues when they write about other things, too. As usual, no one is paying any attention to us. Because we’re the only constituency here, and we can reasonably expect to be catered to, no matter the political consequences, competing concerns and true complexity of what we see as simple but necessary changes. Oh, and you’re either with us, or you’re against us, because that mentality worked so well for the previous president.
