In 2016, politicians and pundits will certainly continue to pontificate about the pitfalls of political correctness.

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.

Andrew Sullivan's Own Revisionist History

Steven Fisher | Posted 02.02.2016 | Queer 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 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.
