Andrew Sullivan Fires Back At Ta-Nehisi Coates' Criticism Of TNR

The Dish | Posted 12.23.2014 | Media

Sex and the Constitution: Why Lawyers Aren't Asking the Right Questions

If the right to get married -- though not specifically mentioned by the founding fathers -- is deemed fundamental to unfettered human experience, wouldn't the same argument be made in regards to physical intimacy?

When Rights Collide

Richard J. Rosendall

When the rights of groups conflict, it makes little sense that the historically privileged should be deemed the aggrieved party. But courtrooms and legislatures are not our only ground. We must reach in honesty and clarity across the social divide.

New Group of Marriage Equality Supporters Calls for 'Tolerance' of Homophobia

John Becker | Posted 06.24.2014 | Gay Voices
John Becker

The statement, titled "Freedom to Marry, Freedom to Dissent," desperately tries to revive the lie that Eich was targeted and toppled by LGBT activists -- a victim of "left-liberal" "intolerance," as Andrew Sullivan so ridiculously claimed.

Usurping the Podium and Claiming Credit: RuPaul, Chad Griffin and 'Gay Grandiosity Syndrome'

Some people, and organizations, simply can't help themselves.

Andrew Sullivan's Own Revisionist History

Steven Fisher | Posted 06.21.2014 | Gay Voices
Steven Fisher

Before writing anything more about Jo Becker and her book, Sullivan should recognize that he's done much the same thing: spinning history to fit a narrative that suits his own political and marketing purposes.

The Worst Problem With Jo Becker's Book on 'The Fight for Marriage Equality'

Michelangelo Signorile | Posted 06.21.2014 | Gay Voices

The omissions in the book are certainly egregious. But throwing Roberta Kaplan and Edie Windsor under the bus while comparing Chad Griffin to a woman who refused to sit at the back of the bus is truly horrendous.

Why I Find Andrew Sullivan to Be Insufferable

Elizabeth Birch | Posted 06.18.2014 | Gay Voices
Elizabeth Birch

While it is true that the struggle for marriage equality predates the Proposition 8 case and its aftermath, it also predates Andrew Sullivan.

The Dish | Posted 04.17.2014 | Politics

The 'Sore Winners' Fallacy

Richard J. Rosendall | Posted 06.10.2014 | Gay Voices
Richard J. Rosendall

Those who call gay people intolerant for defending ourselves are twisting the concept beyond recognition. Civility is a virtue; but tolerance does not require us to treat a relentless assault against our rights as citizens like a disagreement at the dinner table.

No, Andrew Sullivan, Calling Out Bigotry is Not 'Intolerance'

John Becker | Posted 06.07.2014 | Gay Voices
John Becker

In his rush to the barricades, Sullivan both misses the point and harms our cause.

The new SAT is going to be more transparent about what it tests and how you can practice for it. This is a good thing.

In Defense of Alec Baldwin

Lady Bunny | Posted 04.27.2014 | Gay Voices
Lady Bunny

Does an occasional slip-up make you a bigot? Should you lose your job for a few heated words? Alec has denied that he used the word "faggot" and at one time claimed to have used the word "maggot." Who cares? Is the guy actively crusading against gay rights? No!

Send the Bill for the Shutdown to the Religious Right

Frank Schaeffer | Posted 01.23.2014 | Politics
Frank Schaeffer

Don't like the shutdown? Send the bill to the evangelicals. People schooled to live in a make-believe magical facts-be-damned world took over the Republican Party. The Tea Party is the pro-life evangelical subculture reborn with a few libertarian nuts thrown in.

Syria: The American People's Right to Ask Why

Darryl Woodard | Posted 11.12.2013 | Politics

American voices are influencing discussion about Syria. That is good, because it would not have happened if the president had decided to strike first, instead of bringing the matter to Congress for a vote.
