We can learn a lot from Sneetches

One of my family’s favorite stories, The Sneetches, is being compared “not only to the gay minority seeking marriage recognition from the heterosexual majority but to African Americans who resist linking the civil rights movement and the same-sex-marriage movement.”

Dr. Seuss’s story showcased two classes of persons – the Star-Belly Sneetches and the Plain-Belly Sneetches – creating minority groups within the general community.

The New York Law School Law Review will publish “The Sneetches as an Allegory for the Gay Rights Struggle: Three Prisms,” by Peter Nicolas, a professor of law and gender studies at the University of Washington.
