Golden Girls and Golden Compassion, Way Ahead of Its Time
I like to think Sophia would have been thrilled with Friday's SCOTUS ruling. Remember, the exchange below is from a television show that aired during the 1980s.
DOROTHY: Ma, how would you react if one of your kids was gay?
SOPHIA: I know you don’t get many dates, but stick with what you know.
DOROTHY: Ma, I’m not gay, it was a question.
SOPHIA: To tell you the truth, Dorothy, if one of my kids was gay, I wouldn’t love them one bit less. I’d wish them all the happiness in the world.
DOROTHY: That’s because you’re the greatest mother in the world, and I love you!
SOPHIA: Fine. Now shut your fat mouth so I can get some sleep!
