Flashback Thursday: What ≠ hath DOMA wrought

by Jeremy Hooper


Fourteen years later, we're forced to waste even more time and resources dismantling this un-American sack of lies. DOMA's defeat is inevitable, obviously. But that doesn't negate the rights, peace, years, slogans, marches, tax dollars, honor, inequities, and mental energy that this and other esteemed bodies took away from us.

But we're not victims -- we are the victors. Now we just need our allies to find the fortitude to claim our long overdue win.
