Dan Savage on Mark Foley and Marriage
Most people know of Dan Savage in his capacity as the author of Savage Love, his syndicated sex advice column. In recent years, however, Dan Savage has become a rather prolific book author, and has also ventured into some more serious territory on politics and gay rights.
Writing for the Slog, the blog of Seattle's alternative paper (of which he is the editor), The Stranger, Savage offers an interesting perspective on the Mark Foley scandal and its possible implications for gays in the United States.
Since I'm linking to Dan Savage's writings, his piece on some of the less-desirable and possibly confining implications of gay marriage, a sort of prequel to his book The Commitment is also very perceptive and well worth a read. (I referenced this article last week in a conversation with friends about Canadian queer politics last week - I'm hotlinking it here partly for my own reference.) Recommend this Post
