Maybe I’m a hell of a lot more socially liberal than your average Republican, but when we have Maoists in the White House, this just doesn’t seem to be a really big deal. I mean, I wouldn’t say an adultÂ should condone a kid in his mid to late teens having a relationship with an older person, but if it wasn’t another teacher, or anyone else known to the adult, I’m not sure what conservatives are expecting here. I’m also not sure what this has to do with any “homosexual agenda” that is a favorite of conservatives.
I don’t expect Republicans to come out in favor of gay marriage, or to embrace gay sex in the streets, or anything like that. But beating up on gays when it’s politically convenient might win them votes for now, but it’s killing them with people under 30.
