Meandering Election Thoughts, Part 2 (Acronyms Abound)

February 4, 2008 at 3:54 pm (LGBT, politics)

This post links to PDFs of Obama’s and Clinton’s platforms for LGBT rights. Check them out.

They both support passing ENDA, repealing DADT, and including LGBT people in federal hate crimes legislation. Both support civil unions with all the rights and responsibilities of heternormative marriage, but only Obama supports overturning the Defense of Marriage Act; his opposition to DOMA is somewhat meaningless, though, considering that he, like Clinton, doesn’t want to use the word “marriage” to refer to marriages.
