Ways it could get better over night:
- Presidential support for full, unqualified marriage equality.
- The administration following Ted Olson’s advice on DADT repeal/appeal: “It would be appropriate for them to say ‘the law has been deemed unconstitutional, we are not going to seek further review of that.’”
- Making ENDA a priority.
- Subjectively standing opposed to faith-based discrimination when it stymies LGBT people’s civil rights, and not acting as if these conversations are two-sided, equally-footed, doubly-merited “agree to disagree” scenarios.
- Letting gay people borrow Air Force One for our honeymoons.
Okay, okay — we’ll settle for four of the five. Someone other than Olson can provide the DADT advice, if that’s the presidential prerogative.
