    First and foremost Dr. Feldblum is no doubt a highly qualified individual and candidate to head the EEOC. This should be the primary reason for her candidacy and not who she sleeps with! Discrimination based on race and sexuality is not only morally wrong but legally wrong as well. That said, the fight for gays is and should be solely equal rights under the law rather than the advocating of homosexual openness! Other than the devoutly religious, most folk care little about who another adult sleeps with…. This is why DADT is a fair policy for the military. In other words the US Military is saying you can be gay but it’s personal not public!

    [Regarding comment "the fight for gays is and should be solely equal rights under the law rather than the advocating of homosexual openness!"]
    okay…a straight person cannot be fired from the military if it is found out that they are straight. …Equal rights under the law? How about straight people talking about their affairs on the job? (“I couldn’t decide if she wanted me to kiss her or not.”)
    How is it equal, if we get fired for the same behavior?

    I really like this one: “I do not support polygamy,” said Feldblum. “I am sorry I signed that document and I have asked that my name be removed.”
