I’m Gay and I (Sort Of) Agree With Ben Carson

thedailybeast.com — On Wednesday, perpetually controversial conservative Ben Carson told CNN's Chris Cuomo that being gay is "absolutely" a choice. I agree, kind of. Last week I wrote an essay for the Washington Post in which I talked about wanting my daughter to be gay-implicitly and explicitly challenging the idea long advanced by gay rights advocates that being gay is not a choice.

Sally Kohn: I hope my kid is gay like me

dallasnews.com — I live in the liberal bubble of Brooklyn, where no yuppie would ever admit to wanting their kid to be anything in particular other than happy. More often than not, though, we define happiness as some variation on our own lives, or at least the lives of our expectations.

Three Reasons To Boycott Netanyahu's Speech To Congress

talkingpointsmemo.com — On Tuesday morning, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will address a joint session of the United States Congress. Netanyahu was invited to speak not through standard diplomatic procedures-the kind of procedures, say, that the President of the United States might go through to speak to Israel's Knesset.

But more often than not, we define happiness as some variation on our own lives, or at least the lives of our expectations.

Who will grab the millennial vote?

cnn.com — Democrats and Republicans are struggling to make sense of who they are. Both parties are eager to appeal to this generational cohort, aged roughly 18 to 34. Millennials will be an important voting bloc in swing states in the 2016 presidential election, as they were in 2008 and 2012.

Will one man keep Americans locked up in prison?

cnn.com — Groups as disparate as the Center for American Progress and ACLU on the left and the Koch Brothers on the right; Republican Sen. Rand Paul and Democratic Sen. Cory Booker; and over two-thirds of the American people all support major overhauls to America's criminal justice system.

Tough choices: How to win against ISIS

cnn.com — As an exercise in focusing on the homegrown aspects of countering extremism and facilitating better communication among religious, educational, community leaders and law enforcement, this week's three-day meeting had merit. But if the purpose of the summit was to craft a strategy -- even a political one -- to help defeat the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), then its impact is likely to prove very limited indeed.
