Father of Gay Marriage Guilty of Child Porn Will Keep San Fran City Pension

It wasn't that long ago, that San Francisco was declaring Larry Brinkin Week

Stand by your man Stand by your man, Larry Birkin and wife

Of course he will.

It wasn't that long ago, that San Francisco was declaring Larry Brinkin Week recognizing his work as the "co—founder of Bay Area Gay Liberation and the Lesbian/Gay Labor Alliance".

The resolution also mentioned "his 'key role in laying the foundation for marriage equality for same-sex couples by filing the first lawsuit to challenge an employers denial of domestic-partner benefits thus helping San Francisco to develop the Domestic Partnership Ordinance."

Brinkin did indeed file the first domestic partnership lawsuit back in 1982 with the help of the ACLU helping put the country on the course to the social trainwreck it's in now. It also mentioned that Brinkin "is joined in life by his loving Husband Wood Massi and his son Ben."

And then two years later, Larry Brinkin Week came to an abrupt end when the father of gay marriage was charged with being a monster.

Larry Brinkin, a prominent San Francisco Human Rights Commissioner and nationally known gay rights advocate, was arrested in 2012 for possessing and possibly distributing videos and images of babies being raped by adult men. Because of Brinkin’s “iconic” stature in the community as the person who pioneered “domestic partnership” laws nationwide, supporters at the time accused the police of framing him with false charges. But the evidence was so overwhelming that, after 18 months of legal wrangling, on Tuesday, January 21, Brinkin pled guilty to felony possession of child pornography, with various other more serious charges dropped as part of the plea bargain. He will serve just six months in jail and thereafter have to register as a sex offender. But the scandal didn’t end there. A recent law defining which type of actions count as “moral turpitude” required to nullify municipal pension benefits does not include sex crimes involving children, and only refers to financial crimes:

So Larry Brinkin Week hasn't ended in San Francisco yet. In entirely unrelated news...

Investigators found disturbing material on a computer used by Sandy Hook elementary school shooter Adam Lanza, according to recently released results of a police investigation. A file titled "pbear" contains a document that advocates for pedophiles' rights and the liberation of children... Another document titled "Lovebound" contains a screenplay about a relationship between a 10-year-old boy and a 30-year-old man.

It could have been worse. Adam Lanza could have grown up to become a San Francisco Human Rights Commissioner.
