The odd calm of awesome wins - Good As You:: Gay and Lesbian Activism With a Sense of Humor:
"It's always interesting when a much-needed, much sought after LGBT right or protection passes. We expend so much energy and so many words on a particular fight, refuting the lies and misrepresentations put out. We debate until we're blue in the face. But then the chambers of congress cast their votes, and it can almost seem like a non-event. The opposition turns a blind eye, while the principled victor shows unexpected restraint. If you're not careful, the victory can seem a million times less newsworthy than they years of overwrought wrangling."
