Lovely dichotamous joke! That was the intent, the dichotomy? Or was it that homosexuals are aliens? And the illegral immigrants aren't citizens. I assume the homosexuals are?


Really quite clever in a multitude of meanings flowing from the pluriform truths of postmodernity!

Not a surprising response from you, inked. Isn't it all about two-tiered societies with conservatives? One tier with all the rights and privileges for everyone the conservatives like (fundamentalist Episcopalians, rich white males), and another hardscrabble tier for the "undesirables" (progressives, LGBTs, and nonwhites)?

Welcome to the Republic of Gilead. Thank you so much for providing further clarity to us benighted progressives!

For the time-being, but Dubyah and his primitive Christian allies are working hard to change that.

Inked, I think the point is that, while gays may be citizens in name, yet we do not have equal access to all the rights and privileges of citizenship, thereby making our "actual" citizenship of a different and lesser sort that that accorded to straights.
