Let's Be Better

Can my friends (Facebook and otherwise) *please* avoid referring to Kim Davis as a "bitch" or use the dreaded "c-word" about her? It's really bad form to celebrate a victory for sexual progress by hurling sexist epithets at the losing side. 

It's also hypocritical.

And, please, don't make her a martyr. Remember how the abortion fight went after Roe V. Wade--stretching into decades of individuated turf battles. We still have work to do--let's channel our marriage equality victory into constructive action on other important issues. Let's be better than the bigots
