The Chicago Free Press weighs in

on the famous daughters, particularly Mary Cheney, urging that:
maybe National Coming Out Day on Oct. 11 needs a second component now that our movement is maturing. Because it is not good enough to kick down your own closet door if you then try to bind and gag the rest of your brothers and sisters and shove them back into the suffocating darkness. Coming out is wonderful, though it's a long, hard process. Everyone needs to do it in his or her own time. But once you're out, it is simply unacceptable to actively work against your community.
It's an interesting article (although in typical Free Press style a bit over the top) and thought-provoking. Read it and think. Well, if you want to think about this situation more, then read it; otherwise, skip it.
