About Last Week

If you’re like me, and who isn’t, every couple of hours over the last several days, you murmur Seneca Falls, Selma and Stonewall and grin like a crazy person. Or burst into tears. You know what my favorite part is? It’s that the controversy in that triple is in the inclusion of the queers and cross-dressers as our forebears right along with the obviously great Americans like Lucretia Mott and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Martin Luther King, Jr. and John Lewis. You know? The uncontroversial ones. The controversy is whether our gay rights heroes belong in that pantheon with Frederick Douglass and Abraham Joshua Heschel.

So. The other thing that I have been revisiting every few hours is a photograph that Wonkette included in their post A Children’s Treasury of Old Handsome Joe Biden Inauguration-Day Greatness, God Love Him, which I have shamelessly stolen and captioned.


Because that’s how it is in 2013.

Tolerabimus quod tolerare debemus,
