Obama Comes Out

Barack Obama made history today as the first US President to officially come out in support of gay marriage (not “civil unions” aka the semantic wankery that gets used so often in the US to denote “different but equal“)

The timing is good coming in the wake of a North Carolina vote that saw the state’s citizens voting to constitutionally ban gay marriage.  Obama’s stance also immediately provoked strong opposition from conservatives. 😉

For me, although Obama’s stance is brave, it would’ve been braver if he’d taken a stance earlier so perhaps it wouldn’t be too late for some…
