Via a comment caught in our spam filter (“since rescued), I come across a new gay blog with a great name which applies to your humble bloggers as well as many of our readers: The Heterodox Homosexual.
Wish I’d’ve thunk of that one!
Now this fellow makes clear that he’s not a gay conservative (here as well), but he does offer some perspectives in line with things we’ve said here. Having perused his blog, I will say that while I don’t always share his perspective, I do appreciate his insights. He is truly heterodox in the sense that he didn’t offer the groupthink mindlessly repeated on the gay left even if he occasionally borrows their lingo.
And I like the way he approaches the conversation on gay marriage:
Our relationships have worth that doesn’t need affirmation from big government. Also, government has neither the power nor the moral right to make people like us; rather, it can and should give us equal freedom. . . .
The magical piece of paper is neither necessary nor sufficient for a lasting, committed relationship. Some same-sex couples have been together for decades without it. Some straight marriages have gone down the toilet almost immediately.
Obsessed with that magical piece of paper, one left-wing blogger could learn a thing or two from this guy.
Keep an eye on this heterodox homosexual. He definitely has something to add to the conversation.
