Gay Marriage: Some Things Never Change

Erica Jong on gay marriage over at Huffington:

So hurrah for California and Massachusetts. Let's hope the anti-gay lunatic
fringe eventually sees gay marriage as a blessing not a curse. It certainly
promotes stability and family. And it's certainly good for kids.
But the truth is the anti-gays don't think rationally. They need their wedge issues to
distract the populace from reality. Anti-gay rhetoric is a useful political
smokescreen. It obscures the fact that the rich are getting richer and that
nobody gives a hoot about the poor. Whenever people get exercised about sex --
suspect the truth: they want to pick your pocket.
