  •  We are getting there. No, really. (9+ / 0-)

    So now we are discussing the manner in which a gay actor came out and the reaction thereto, which will be told in whether he remains employable (I predict he will be).

    This is progress. Just plain progress. In fact, I really think we need to just take a breath and realize how far we have come.

    There was a time when this actor never would have come out, period. And there was a time when he would have had to make a huge deal out of it, rather than just mentioning it casually in an interview. That's also progress.

    It gets better. It really does. As for the hypocrites, it is simply shameful. Jimmy Swaggart has nothing on them.

      and we should celebrate that, while acknowledging that the final victory is still somewhere over the horizon.

      Still progress is better than going the other way.

      Getting Democrats together and keeping them that way is like herding cats that are high on meth, through L.A., during an earthquake, in the rain -6.25, -6.10

      Neither Rock Hudson nor Liberace ever acknowledged their sexuality.  Liberace's doctor even falsified his death certificate in an attempt to hide the fact that he'd died of AIDS.  And that was just 25 years ago.  

      Youth will make the ultimate difference.  We just have to wait for some of the intractable bigots to die out.
