“Tammy Baldwin getting elected to the U.S. Senate in Wisconsin. I found her election to be quite amazing, because the vast majority of the Senate is heterosexual. But I’m concerned about a backlash. I just hope that everyone will work together in harmony, so the country can move forward.”

“Ellen DeGeneres keeping her job as a spokesperson for JC Penney. She’s a great role model for people. It would have been ridiculous to pull her off just because she’s a lesbian. I don’t think anyone should be limited because of their sexual orientation. I’m open to loving anyone, regardless of gender.”“Ellen DeGeneres keeping her job as a spokesperson for JC Penney.

“President Obama coming out in support of same-sex marriage. I give the president a lot of credit. It was a very historic thing. And it was long overdue, considering that Democrats are supposed to embrace diversity. President Obama supports so many other marginalized causes. It was important for him to support same-sex marriage, as well.”

“The Chic-fil-A controversy. I was dumbfounded that a large franchise could have such closed-minded, bigoted opinions about gay people in this day and age. I thought it was really cool that so many people pulled together to oppose the bigotry.”
