I'd imagine some actual gay people would find that a bit insulting but whatever. God knows they have to think of something to help them move a few of those printed editions off shelves.

Yet another example of why I don't read Newsweak anymore. Buchanan was the first gay president, not Obama!

Johnson, I'd say.

There is a lot of humor to be mined from this as the mind of LBJ in the body of an 18 month old baby girl is quite hilarious.

I imagine hyphenation, for both spouses, as a sort of custom would very quickly make us all sound like a bunch of bizarrely named English aristocrats.
