Why is it that when a politician changes his mind to the detriment of trans rights its ‘political reality’ that must be respected, but when a politician changes his mind to the detriment of same-sex marriage, its not simply political reality but, instead, the politician becomes the embodiment of betrayal – Benedict Arnold multiplied by Julius and Ethel Rosenberg with a Quisling chaser?

And why is it that when gays and lesbians demand their contributions to a politician be returned because he isn’t going to vote the way they want him to vote on marriage the appropriate prosecutorial authorities don’t interpret the demand as an admission that the monetary contributions were intended to be part of a quid pro quo?
