Mark Oppenheimer has written a fascinating piece for Salon on the life and motivations of gay equality foe Maggie Gallagher. It's a lenghty read, but worth it. Essentially, a man treated her badly when she was an awkward Yale student, getting her pregnant and refusing to be a father to the baby. From that crucible of pain, she developed very fixed ideas about sex, procreation and marriage that she now believes she must force on the rest of us.
My favorite quote, from a Yale suitemate:
“She was not easygoing,” Stevelman says of her suitemate. “She wasn’t what you would call a fun roommate.”
Something tells me that's a vast understatement. Read it all here.
