I chuckled at Brian J. Goldenfeld’s adoring homage to the GOP, but I was glad to see he embraces Bruce Jenner’s freedom of “choice” because, based on past bigotry, I was starting to think that most Republicans were a little uncomfortable about gender identity. He seems to have forgotten however, that the official Republican platform calls for a constitutional amendment […]
