Lesbian Republican Does Not Feel Guilty About Her Role In The Creation Of DOMA

While working for the Republicans in the House of Representatives in 1996, Kathryn Lehman was making some big changes in America; she successfully helped enact the Defense of Marriage Act, also known as DOMA.

This is a federal ban that does not recognize same-sex marriage.

Lehman, by the way, is a lesbian.

Or, as I like to call lesbians, "vagatarians."

In a recent interview with The New York Times, Lehman said she felt no guilt over her role in the law banning federal recognition of same-sex marriage.

“Mention that you’re Christian or mention that you’re Republican and suddenly you just get vilified,” she said. “That may be one of the reasons for the lack of visibility of gay women in the Republican Party."

You are not vilified, Ms. Lehman, for being religious, or a Republican, or a lesbian, or whatever label you are feeling self pity for at the moment.

You are vilified because you are ignorant.

Ironically, Kathyrn Lehman currently works for Freedom To Marry, which hopes to overturn DOMA, the very law she helped write.
