I first spotted this in the headlines at conservative lesbian Tammy Bruce’s blog. And I just added the tag, “There IS a God.”
Seriously, my heart is singing and I’m walking on air. And she is absolutely correct about what will ultimately win equality for homosexuals.
H/T also to Memeorandum.
Update, 12/2/09, Wed.: Several hours after posting this the thought came to me that I took for granted that my gentle readers would know something that it now occurs to me I can’t count on them knowing: Meredith Baxter was not straight for most of her life through three husbands and bearing five children and then suddenly somehow she was overwhelmed with teh gay and became a lesbian in her fifties. No — she was a lesbian all along, but it took her awhile to work that out and get the courage to be herself. Also, as an actress, she may have felt, or been advised, that being openly lesbian would have harmed her career. Because coming out and being openly lesbian does change your relationships — and can cost you your family, home and career — it takes a lot of self-confidence and courage. It is not unusual for women not to have the needed inner and outer circumstances to be openly lesbian until their thirties or later. Actress Kelly McGillis is another example of a woman who did not come out as a lesbian until later in life.
