The Boy Scouts’ new policy allowing gay youth but banning gay adult leaders is the new “don’t ask, don’t tell.” At least that’s what I told Inside Texas Politics during a “My Voice, My Opinion” segment on the Sunday morning news show this week. My 60-second commentary begins shortly after the 8:40 mark in the video below.

WATCH: Dallas Voice senior editor goes all up ‘Inside Texas Politics’

Screen shot 2013-03-18 at 11.47.50 AMBadly in need of a haircut, I appeared on WFAA’s Inside Texas Politics on Sunday to discuss a proposed Dallas City Council resolution in support of marriage equality and statewide LGBT employment protections. In my 60-second commentary, I chose not to use the name of the council member who authored the resolution, so as to avoid the issue being politicized, since he’s in a contested race against another incumbent. But host Jim Douglas kind of blew my cover in his intro when he mentioned the council member’s name (even though he left off a letter). Oh well, it is what it is, as they say. Watch my latest “My Voice, My Opinion” at the 8:20 mark in the video below.
