Romney very indifferent on gay issues, at best
The “CSDecoder” has an article “Obama vs. Romney: 4 Ways they differ on gay issues”, link here.
The four ways are (1) gay marriage (2) gay adoption (3) HIV research and funding (4) anti-discrimination and hate crimes laws.
The attention to gay adoption is a little bit surprising. Some states still do not permit same-sex couples to adopt. In practice, I find that a lot of people feel that singles (and gays and lesbians) should share more or the responsibility for other generations (filial responsibility could cause a lot more responsibility for eldercare).
This particular article didn’t specifically address the repeal of “don’t ask don’t tell”, which some observers feel would be at risk if Romney wins.
