Homophobia: pro and con

In the continuing effort by the media to seek balance in the most odious places, CNN's web site today features an opinion piece by James Dobson on gay marriage.

In this "special to CNN," Dobson complains that the media is biased against gay marriage because it doesn't espouse the views that he is, er, espousing on the web site of one of the largest news outlets in the world.

OK, then.

James Dobson, if you'll recall, recently advised men on how they can head off incipient gayness in their sons:

Meanwhile, the boy's father has to do his part. He needs to mirror and affirm his son's maleness. He can play rough-and-tumble games with his son, in ways that are decidedly different from the games he would play with a little girl. He can help his son learn to throw and catch a ball. He can teach him to pound a square wooden peg into a square hole in a pegboard. He can even take his son with him into the shower, where the boy cannot help but notice that Dad has a penis, just like his, only bigger.

Let's review:

rough-and-tumble games
decidedly different
