At the Publishing Triangle Awards event last week in New York Martin Duberman received a lifetime achievement award, and spoke about "how assimilation isn’t the point, and how the gay and lesbian community's focus as a movement on inclusion in institutions like marriage distracts them from more systemic problems like poverty, education, and health care."
If freedom to marry a distraction from the bigger issues and are those other battles being lost because of the diversion? Sometimes you can focus so much on one battle you can lose the war.
