  •  Homophobia unleashed on DKos (3+ / 0-)

    Reading through the comments has made me see more homphobia on DKos than I have ever seen. And it's anger too that gays like me, and in bi-national relationships like I am too, should bow down for others when President Obama promoted equality but the Dems in the Senate gang dropped us like hot potatoes before even fighting for us and making the Republican hypocrites like closet living Lyndsey Graham own their homophobic votes. I am totally blown away by the understanding and compassion by the wonderful straight allies here and deeply offended by the vitriol by others who have no understanding of the situation and think I and others should just STFU so others can have their rights but not me or my partner. I wish you walked in our shoes!

    •  I have walked in your shoes, and feel horrible (0+ / 0-)

      for you and your partner. I too have had many tearful goodbyes at the airport, it is more painful than I can describe.

      I do not think anyone is telling you to STFU (though I doubt I have seen every comment here) or are truly homophobic or totally uncaring.

      This situation just sucks, to put it very mildly, but I am not convinced the Democrats could ever get this through at this time. I hate it, but it seems true.

      I wish I could hug you, and understand how angry you are, and worried in your particular situation.

      I wish I could get your partner here, I really do understand.
