Turning back the clock on sexual liberation

I was just thinking about how, almost four years ago, I wrote a post or two about how the ultimate goal of the anti-gay movement is to overturn Lawrence and recriminalize gay sex. I got a lot of heat from that from straight (liberal) readers. They thought it was ridiculous.

Anyway, it was considered as ridiculous four years ago to say that the ultimate goal of the anti-choice movement was to ban contraception. And now here we are.

So while turning back the clock on gay rights is probably not going to happen soon, let’s at least keep in mind both that it could happen and that it’s what the right’s activist base wants to see happen.
