I have been loving writing for Gawker this year. A month ago, John Cook came to me with the idea to write an essay “on the difference between gay marriage as pitched and as practiced.” And so, I wrote “Master Bedroom, Extra Closet: The Truth About Gay Marriage.” It was a fascinating piece to write, and the brave couples who spoke to me about how they deal with monogamy gave me a glimpse into an interesting, usually off-limits sociological world. I couldn’t be happier with how Gawker edited the piece nor with the reaction. I was also really honored to see that Thomas Frank (author of “What’s The Matter With Kansas?”) referenced my previous Gawker article in this month’s Harper’s.
