Where does Goldberg, a staunch conservative, fall on the topic of gay marriage? His feelings may surprise you. Read "As gay becomes bourgeois."

 

excerpt:

"So now openly gay soldiers get to fight and die in neocon-imperialist wars too?

"David Brooks saw such ironic progressive victories coming. In his book "Bobos in Paradise," he wrote that everything 'transgressive' gets 'digested by the mainstream bourgeois order, and all the cultural weapons that once were used to undermine middle-class morality ... are drained of their subversive content.' "

Op-Ed
As gay becomes bourgeois
With 'don't ask, don't tell' repealed and gays seeking marriage equality, the homosexual bourgeoisie is emerging — a concept subversive to both liberals and conservatives.

@ Sentient Biped

 

And of course you are right, any end to discriminatory practices is to be welcomed.

 

My post was pointed more towards the irony contained within the Law of Unintended Consequences

 

(i.e Vote for Gay Marriage, get Gay-Mother-in-Laws)

DADT may be limited to knowing or disclosing.
But what about actual acts of sodomy under US Uniform Military Code?

Uniform Code of Military Justice

ART. 125 of the UCMJ-SODOMY

(a) Any person subject to this chapter who engages in unnatural carnal copulation with another person of the
same or opposite sex or with an animal is guilty of sodomy. Penetration , however slight, is sufficient to
complete the offense.
(b) Any person found guilty of sodomy shall be punished as a court-martial may direct.

Why These Are Times of Crisis for Global LGBT Equality -- And How Activists Are Fighting the Hate

Dispatches from an international conference of activists fighting for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and intersex equality.

Joseph Huff-Hannon / AlterNet

December 9, 2010  | 

Welcome to the 25th annual conference of the International Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association (ILGA), which drew up to 300 activists from dozens of countries to a hotel in Sao Paolo this week. ... the theme this year is “Building the way forward in times of crisis.” And times of crisis these are indeed for LGBT people around the world.

Last month a committee of the United Nations General Assembly voted to remove a reference to sexual orientation from a resolution on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions—essentially giving a green light for governments to kill LGBT people at their whim. ...

Viable Female and Male Mice from Two Fathers Produced Using Stem Cell Technology

Great news! My only concern is that it would further the right wing fight against stem cell research.

By the way, the pug screen saver has been on my computer for over six years. I have four pugs and I am a volunteer for pug rescue. Everytime someone sees this screen saver they send it to me, not knowing that I have had it for so long. Anyway, it makes me smile everytime I see it.
