The Final Word on Prop 8

Some topics are milked far too much. Proposition 8 is one of them. With so many arguments and retorts, one would think that the cow's udders have no juice left. And he would be correct. To save the cow from exhaustion, let's stop milking and make some butter. Homosexual relationships are as intimate and loving, as intertwined with jealousy and rancor, as shallow and as sophisticated as any other heterosexual relationship. To assume that compassionate intimacy is bound by sexual orientation, or that benign, familial relationships can't be established in certain households, is to milk the chicken and collect the eggs from the cow. However, to assume that the state needs to formally recognize such intimacy is also missing the mark.

Any activity can be an art, as long as it inspires. Lecturing is no different. Throughout one's experience as an undergrad at UC Irvine, one has the luxury of constantly being inspired by a lecture.
