“When Kate Brown takes over as Governor of Oregon, voters may not know anything about her record, but they will certainly know about her love life. The leading stories about the state’s new leader have nothing to do with Brown’s legislative accomplishments and everything to do with her other conquests. As a self-professed bisexual, most of the headlines surrounding Brown’s promotion are about the visibility she can bring to the ‘bi-community’ – not the unity and progress she can bring to the state as a whole. It’s a truly sad commentary on the devolution of our nation that leaders are not defined – not by their skill or expertise – but by their sexual experiences. As a society, we’ve become so obsessed with sex that we’re almost incapable of considering anything else. Of course, the question on every Oregonians’ minds should be: will Brown’s public policy be as fluid as her sexuality?” – Hate group leader Tony Perkins, via email. Brown will be sworn in today.
