    I will pressure the President and I will advocate for gay and lesbian and transgender candidates and principles, but I'm not going to lower myself to believe that my President is a bigot. That, to me, is an offensive concept. No, "teh gay" is not offensive to him. That comment lowers the level of the dialogue that I wanted to start with this diary. No, the President is not a bigot. He may lack the political courage to lead on this issue, but I know of Presidents bolder even than he that have waffled on civil rights. Truman Eisenhower and FDR come to mind.

      The bigots know what they hate and are willing to use any and all means at their disposal to see that it doesn't happen (or worse). The "Ick"ers just want to shove their heads in the sand to make the creepy thing go away.

      If it's
      Not your body
      Then it's
      Not your choice
      AND it's
      None of your damn business!
