The irony is that the vast majority of gay soldiers would proudly fight to defend the right of Tony Perkins and his colleagues in condemnatory cash-cowdom to speak out against their lives and loves. And it's not because we gays are better about taking the high road, either. It's because this thoroughly American equality fight has the high road inextricably built into it.
