THANKSGIVING: NORMALLY, A TIME TO THANK GOD and count our blessings. A time to stuff the turkey and then stuff ourselves; maybe have a piece of pie and settle down to watch football. Or, if you’re Dr. Jennifer Roeback Morse of the Ruth Institute, a time to warn unsuspecting parents that their sons and daughters in college are being exposed to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.
If you missed Dr. Morse’s recent video, it’s a pleasant 3:24. The background music is soothing. The doctor has a pleasant voice and a seemingly gentle demeanor. And even when she’s asking for money, you hardly notice.
At any rate, here’s what has her worried: in light of the recent election, she says, conservatives are concerned about “what’s going on in the culture.” If you’re a liberal, you wonder: Does she mean the re-election of that…um…Negro person? Is she concerned about the legalization of pot in Colorado? Or new assisted suicide provisions in Massachusetts? No way of telling. But she is clearly worried about gayness.
