You know, I get pissed, and I post stuff. I'm not backtracking, but I want to make something clear: I think Judge Sotomayor is a fine choice for Supreme Court Justice, and I applaud President Obama for making that move.
I'm suffering from something akin to survivor's guilt. On a day when I get to celebrate 36 years of marriage, many of my friends find out they aren't allowed to celebrate 36 seconds of marriage. On a day when people are properly celebrating Sotomayor's nomination, I find myself thinking of those friends, and their friends, and all of the gay people of California who would like to be married.
But this shouldn't detract from Sonia Sotomayor.
