I’ve stopped being sore about the wound Hillary Clinton opened at Nancy Reagan’s funeral. It hurt many thousands of gay men of my generation who survived the worst of the AIDS crisis, and it enraged me to an appropriate degree. After a day to process it, I’ve calmed down and moved on.
Today, I’m grateful for Barack Obama. He just doesn’t make big mistakes like Clinton did the other day. Did it prove that Clinton is capable of making serious blunders? Yes. Did she make this blunder because she’s female? No. Does Drumph make daily, unconscionable blunders? Hell, yeah. Is it because he’s male? Nope. He’s quite simply, a #shitiot.
Ultimately, I will vote for whoever wins the Democratic nomination regardless of gender.
