And Brains To Match

The NYU student who asked Justice Anton Scalia if he sodomizes his wife has written an email explaining his actions to Wonkette.
I can't even Cliffs Notes this email. Read it. His argument is intelligent, his reasons for doing what he did valid beyond mere shock value, and his logic both incredibly sound and compelling.

Intelligent, ballsy, and a lawyer. I wonder if he's cute and/or single...

That is one hell of an email. He does a grand job of making it clear that he gets to choose when, where and how HE will make his protest.

I originally saw his question to the judge as counter productive and falling into many of the stereotypes that abound. I saw it as all shock with little substance.

His email makes me understand where it came from. I don't agree that his comment put a mirror on the judge and subjected him to anything close to the invasions gay and lesbian americans edure.

I do think his actions came from a very good place. I commend him for being american in words and action.

He did not change any minds with his question. He had no intention of changing minds. He did shine a light on something that thrives in the dark. He illuminated something that is very out-of-sight-out-of-mind for a straight guy like me.

Strangly, one thing that homosexuals and homophobes might share is a constant awareness of the issue. I am neither gay nor homophobic and that means I need to be reminded about what is happening - happening every day.

Thanks for updating us on this Danno. Beers are on me.
