This week’s book: “The Commitment: Love, Sex, Marriage, and My Family” by Dan Savage. I started reading this book earlier last year, got half way, and put it down. Then last month, I finally pulled myself together to finish the book. At first, I thought it was all about Mr. Savage’s journey through the hurdles of getting married (as he is gay, and wants a same-sex marriage). However, I was surprised to hear a lot of other opinions from popular media to politics (and in particular, the GOP’s candidate, Rick Santorum, and his views on gay marriage).
I absolutely love the story about his son, and heard it first of “This American Life”. It really does put gay marriage into light for me as I was not as sympathetic (but did support) the issue. If you’re familiar with Dan Savage’s work, his style of humor and insight are absolutely fabulous.
