Today’s the first day of Elena Kagan’s confirmation hearings as President Obama’s second Supreme Court nominee. Republicans will try to give Kagan a hard time, but she really doesn’t have any major skeletons in her closet to give them fuel. Oh, aside from this one: She has a history of promoting gay rights. And she has short hair. Holy cow – she must be a lesbian, or at least she was one once. And having a lesbian on the Supreme Court would send America straight into the gutter. Obviously.
Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays and Gays has urged Kagan to come out as an “ex-lesbian,” while anti-gay group MassResistance is threatening to release a report of her activism for gay rights. Wait – a person pursuing equal rights for everyone as declared in our Constitution? That’s the last person we’d want on the U.S. Supreme Court.
