Article 377 – RIP

18 years ago, we made a decision.  We decided that we wanted to get rid of the shackles that had been binding our economy – we have made significant strides in the right direction there.

The question I have is if now is a similar watershed for our social shackles.  The striking down of the anachronistic law recently gives me a great sense of being there.  The government has finally decided to butt out of our bedrooms – a great beginning.  They have come to the realization that what the British saw fit for us a century and a half ago and not fit for themselves for the last five decades may not be fit for us after all.

Don’t get me wrong.  Do I want to sleep with another man? No.  But what I celebrate today is that any other man who answers yes can do it with the same aplomb.  What I really want to say today is Thank You.
