Dude. It was a human moment. There's no call to part company with someone showing their humanity. At least, the kinder part of humanity.

Hey, FWIW, I've been throwing my body into serving the gay agenda since I used to do actions with ACT-UP and QUEER NATION back in the day. FWIW, it's only partially for you. I believe that gay rights are human rights not recognizing them diminishes us all. But I also wholeheartedly support gay marriage for the very selfish reason that I HATE the patriarchy with all my heart and I know marriage has been its handmaiden for lo these many millennium. And I have faith, or at least hope, that extending marriage to same sex couples is gonna be a serious blow to that heritage continuing. That really crystalized to me once upon a time, in the Washington State Supreme Court courtroom, listening to the pro-DOMA lawyers blithely defending straight marriage as the only marriage. And somehow, a good thing, despite its brutal heritage. So. I’d love a party, but I didn’t give blood and treasure just for you. I did it because I want the future to be better for us girls.
