People are missing the point here, she wasn't elected because of her sexuality, the fact that this is historic is because this is the first time an openly gay woman has been able to run on her beliefs, and have the voters vote her in because they agreed with her beliefs and the fact that she is gay did not hinder her ability to successfully run for office. It is a sign of social progress and should be celebrated as such.
Eat me, drink me, love me;
Laura make much of me
To me this isnt an issue & to me it shouldnt be an issue, but the fact that some are trying to make it an issue (from any side) means theres a way to go before theres real social progress.
