Obama Loves Queers! (Except Not)

Obama recently announced that he supports gay marriage…but what does that actually mean? According to Black Girl Dangerous blogger Mia McKenzie,

“It’s not really about equality.”

McKenzie’s compelling article examines some of the nuances of Obama’s support – who is valued, and who isn’t. She writes,

So, basically, what the President is saying is that same-sex couples who are in relationships that look a certain way (monogamous, for example) should be able to have all the rights of straight people. […] What about those of us, queer and straight, who aren’t into monogamy but are into committed relationships?

Highly recommended. You can read the rest of McKenzie’s article here.
