And I totally understand that he's probably not doing it because of needing votes to get re-elected. I get it. But at the same time, he's relatively young - will he want to run for Senate again after his career as President (whether that's in one or five years)? And if so, will my equal rights still be a question of him wanting to get elected? And I'd rather my rights not just be a polling number to him - because they're more than a polling number to me.
So that is why I was upset.
That and the fact that I don't think he's actually going to alienate anyone in his camp. Conservatives already think he's a crazy liberal and they already hate him for it - so I don't think that this will push them over the edge. They already questioned whether or not he was actually American - so I don't think him voicing support for marriage equality is really going to be the straw that breaks their little backs.
So again, Mr. President, please come out for marriage equality. The closet is dark and lonely - but we're having a blast out here in the sun.
