Of course it doesn't, that's why she was hired.

But, are you saying that she is supposed to pretend that she only dates men? Not have a loved one's picture on her desk? Not invite her significant other to events?

How does one "hide" being gay?

Why? Isn't being qualified the important thing?

And, really, are you telling me that no gay person should be allowed to work, and that you would be fine paying the additional taxes for food, housing, and medical care for all the unemployable gay folks?

Can I quit my job now?

If she was straight would the headline have read "Vanderbilt Divinity Appoints Heterosexual Dean"?

I mean why should she have to hide the fact she's a normal person?

I already am. I'm not fine with it but what choice do I have. Obama says I have to work so that queers can live for free.
You know any that do? Personally?
