Oh, look – I'm in a press release about gay marriage from the Institute for Public Accuracy!

Here's what they say I say:

Author of The End of San Francisco, Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore said today: “Here we go again — as the powers-that-be in the United States devise new ways to stifle dissent, destroy the environment, privatize public resources, and continue the path of never-ending war, another debate about gay marriage between straight homophobes who think that all queers deserve to burn in hell and self-hating gays who think that all gay people deserve marriage — really, what’s the difference? The mainstream gay movement is now obsessed with obtaining straight privilege at any cost — marriage and military inclusion instead of ending these fundamental institutions of oppression; hate crimes legislation instead of abolishing the prison industrial complex; and maybe even ordination into the priesthood, such lovely icing on the wedding cake. What a nightmare — we need to get back to fighting for gender, sexual, social, and political self-determination for everyone, as a start.

And, speaking of public accuracy, there's the treasure trove of brilliance that the genius known as Yasmin Nair has been compiling on her homepage, so do check that out and note that Yasmin is currently fundraising to save her apartment by April 1 – all the ways you can help are on her homepage, so do head on over there as soon as you get a chance…
