    and i too yearn for a time, hopefully in the near future, when such inconsequential characteristics are widely viewed as inconsequential and no longer newsworthy

    Good news. Another step forward for LGBT rights.

    Haha, I just looked at this guys wiki page:

    Graham has never been married and, when questioned by Robert Draper of the New York Times, said, "I know it's really going to upset a lot of gay men—I'm sure hundreds of them are going to be jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge—but I ain't available; I ain't gay. Sorry."[54]

    I wish the first openly gay senator was a good one, though.
    sadly it appears her being gay is the main positive qualification for some on this board

    what she does in her bedroom should have no relevance to opposing or supporting her

    I imagine everyone knows this, but nonetheless, some (not all) who agree with an individual will use something like this to justify a greater call for support and harsher criticism of opposition. This is, of course, absurd.

    Its as important to me as whether a senator wears pinstriped suits or plain ones or pumps instead of flats

    Well, personally I support her because I agree with most of her positions, but her sexual orientation is a plus. Her being gay is important because she is more likely to support gay rights than a straight candidate.
