I don’t care whether they’re straight, gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, queer, questioning, two-spirit, men-who-have-sex-with-men, womyn-loving-womyn, autosexual, or beyond categorization. I know it matters to some gay-rights activists who think every gay nominee is practically gay-bashing unless she starts her testimony with, “I am a gay American judicial nominee…” I know it matters to some anti-gay-rights activists who think every Kinsey 1 or above signs a secret pledge to promote the Protocols of the Elders of San Francisco. But I really, actually don’t care.
In fact, if I think of it at all, I prefer to think of these folks as asexual. It helps me get on with the day.
