Today’s clouds look sponged onto the blue sky.
It’s great that his son came out. It’s a reminder that announcing your sexual identity to your family is a very powerful political act. It’s great that Portman supports SSM now. No snark about that.
But we can’t have policy being made entirely based on personal experience. Portman probably doesn’t have a transgender son. Or a Muslim son living in Pakistan. Or a daughter who can’t pay the rent. But the policies he helps make in Washington affects all those people and it’s not asking too much to expect elected officials to base their policy views on something other than their family circumstances.
Ilya Gerner regarding Sen. Rob Portman’s announcement that he now supports marriage equality because his son came out as gay. I couldn’t agree with Ilya’s sentiments more!

Ack! I am not sure I understand what a “photography lifestyle” magazine is—or should be, but why does a photograph magazine aimed at women need to include fashion & beauty advice?! Are “craft ideas and photography inspired products” really gender specific? Hopefully the editors have remembered to include a lot of the color pink through the pages [/barf].
