Get Comfy

In this column, Ellen Goodman asks if gay rights must wait for everyone else’s “comfort,” and decides that the answer is no (which, I admit, is a bit of a “duh” for me, but, okay, I can acknowledge that maybe there are a lot of people, even liberals, who toil to overcome ingrained homophobia). The only gay marriage with which I’ve ever been uncomfortable is Liza Minelli’s and David Gest’s.

But frankly, they may have been wise to wait until at least one remotely humanoid form was comfortable with their union before taking the big leap.
