I'm back at work today, feeling decentish. Took care of canceling utilities and setting up new ones yesterday, which is a load off of my mind. Also, my RFID blocking wallet came so I'm using that now. No more foil in my pants!
Air Force investigates mistaken transport of nuclear materials - yikes.
Per our earlier discussion, here's an article about the guy who's been outing anti-gay politicians. (there was a more biased version of the article in the Washington Post this morning) This isn't exactly the same since Craig was arrested and it seems like Mike Craig just brought that arrest to light, but it brings up the question:
Should anti-gay politicians be outed?
Absolutely - anything less than full support for marriage rights, etc. is hypocricy
Yes, if they consistently vote for discriminatory policies
Not unless they use gay issues as scare tactics in their campaigns (and vote for discriminatory policies)
No, no matter their behavior or voting record
My thoughts (no peeking before you vote!):This is no longer quite the issue it once was, since being gay in and of itself is fairly widely accepted these days. But after being closeted myself for a while, it put a big emotional strain on me to keep it a secret. I get the hypocricy angle, but I don't think outing is justified except in the most extreme situations. I'm also a big believer in keeping one's personal and work lives separate.
