Flashback Thursday: Maggie felt gay marriages were a waste of attention
June 17, 1996:
A Maggie who admits that marriage equality for same-sex couples only affects the percentages of gay people who wish to marry? Move over Cheri Oteri: This version of Maggie may have just replaced you as the 1996 idea that I'd most like to see make a triumphant career comeback!!
But of course Maggie was short-sighted in her careers. For we were not destined to spend five years discussing this subject, like she "feared." Thanks in large part to her self-appointed role as the jeweler to deny gays of gold bands, we've been forced to keep this an "issue" for going on fourteen years! So she not only became the exact kind of person who she initially (and rightly) thought was distracting from actual issues: She became three times more distracting than she ever wanted to be! All while public support continued to rise. All for a civil concept that is just as non-encroaching as she recognized it to be on this bright, spring Clinton era day.
