Ask a Lesbian: Proposition 8!

AJ apologizes for the wait readers have endured to hear Nell's thoughts on Proposition 8 (moar liek prop h8 amirite) -- presently our fearless lesbian is keeping a very busy schedule fighting hard to secure same sex domestic partner benefits for pharmacists! Without further ado, lolAJ is pleased to present to you: ASK A LESBIAN --- PROPOSITION 8. 

Wait but first! Some music to set the mood...



READERS WANT TO KNOW

Dear Nell,

Which do you think is more significant: that Americans elected a black president or that they banned gay marriage in California?

thanks,
interested

Dear Interested,

In fact, neither one is significant. Both are simply spectacles distracting us from substantive issues. 

Cynically yours,

Nell

Dear Nell,

In a post-racist and post-proposition 8 country, what is the most important thing Gay Americans can be doing to work for marriage equality and other gay civil rights?

thanks nell!


Dear post-racist,

The most important thing Gay Americans can be doing these days is making it clear to everyone that they are simply Americans who happen to be Gay.

Your in assimilation,

Nell

Dear Nell,

Which do you think is a bigger problem: racism in gay and lesbian communities? Or homophobia in African American communities?

thanks,
concerned


Dear Concerned,

I think the biggest problem is YOU.

Sincerely,
Nell

Dear Nell,

Which out and proud gay celebrity would you rather be and why: Ellen Degeneres or Jane Lynch?

sincerely,
curious


Dear Curious,

That's a great question. While Ellen has a certain appeal that comes with daytime tv stardom and really became the face of the anti-Prop 8 movement as people tearfully asked each other, "But what will happen to Ellen and Portia??," I'd have to go with Jane Lynch. She's just got more of a sense of irony, from what I can tell. By looking at her. 

Keep reading!

-Nell
