"It's important for all of us to remember that life for ordinary gay people can still be difficult, even as a powerhouse gay movement flexes its cultural, financial and behind-the-scenes political power to repress the rights of others to organize, speak, donate and now hire a lawyer to defend marriage.
One thing is clear: This is not a movement that needs extraordinary intervention by the courts to protect its rights. As one blog comment put it: 'Making a blue-chip law firm drop the federal government as a client? Oppressed groups don't usually have that kind of clout.'
Time for the rest of us to learn how to organize to defend our rights, too."
--Maggie Gallagher in a column discussing how straight people are oppressed by the Secret Sodomy Mafia
