"Not Good Enough, Mr. President"

I am gay man. I am a man that loves a man. I have no desire to be a woman, dress as a woman or marry a woman. Woman are my sisters in a battle to thrive in a heterosexual male dominated world. The Man dominated world is a place built on unimaginable violence and gross exploitation of people and resources.
So I have to ask myself why it seems that the oppression of woman everywhere in the world seems to outrage me more then most people I know including women? I guess maybe it's because I see the limiting the ability of a woman to live her dreams is the grandmother of oppressive practices.
So when I listen to President Obama address the Shia Law in Afghanistan my first thought is "Not good enough, Mr. President"
