Yesterday’s report on gay marriage and the end of the world provoked some interesting responses, both here and on my Facebook page. (I invite my Facebook friends to become a part of the Red Room community so they can comment here—come on in, we aren’t commies, in spite of the name. We are authors! There’s a difference!)
I appreciate that there are strong feelings about an issue as important as the end of the world and gay marriage, and so I have decided to do something about it. Kathi Kamen Goldmark and I are getting married on June 12 because we can (also we want to do so before the gay people make heterosexual marriage illegal), but the responses to my blog made me think—hey, it isn’t fair that we can get married while gay people can’t. So I decided to do something about it. In solidarity with the gay rights movement I am volunteering Kathi to get a sex change operation before the wedding. It’s going to take a lot of doing in such a short amount of time. For one thing, Kathi is a long way from looking like a man. But I think we have to do something bold to make a statement.
