Nadia, I think you hit the nail on the head here, it being a difficult place to be. We all wish that things were the way they want them to be and, yes, along the path there will be disappointments. That's part of our "messy human existence". I'll admit I'm a little disappointed, but I do understand that, in the larger picture, there will be defeats and there will be victories. Our view, then, should be to not crow too loudly about our victories and not allow our defeats to stop us. As cavalier as this may sound, and I'm not simply dismissing the views of our GLBTQ brothers and sisters, maybe the best is to stand back up, brush the dust off, and take another step forward. No great social change in this country has come without a great deal of pain. Long before the victory is won, those who fight for justice often face defeats and roadblocks. Overcoming those, and not allowing ourselves to become bitter and jaded, makes future defeats a little less painful.

Mike, Sounds like a very cool book. The chapter about questions and answers intrigues me. I'll have to add this one to my reading list.
