More often than not, the Capitol is a place of predictable political relationships--us versus them, them versus us. That's why the story of Sheila J. Kuehl stands out. Kuehl is a liberal lesbian from Santa Monica--the first openly gay person to serve in the California Legislature. Before her debut in the Assembly late last year, conservatives shuddered--viewing her, one lawmaker recalls, as a "femi-Nazi" bent on ramming her "repugnant" beliefs down their throats. Nine months have passed.

The possible jail term is the same for choking a woman and strangling a rabbit. The possible fine is different. A thousand dollars for attacking the woman. Twenty thousand for killing the pet rabbit. "This is consistent with a [country] that has six times as many animal shelters as domestic violence shelters," said Assemblywoman Sheila J. Kuehl (D-Santa Monica). "Crimes against women have never been taken as seriously as other types of crime."

OPINION
September 24, 1995
Thank you for your story on Assemblywoman Sheila J. Kuehl (Sept. 12). As a student at Loyola Law School, I was privileged to attend her class on women and the law. She is a friendly, intelligent woman, who is deeply concerned about the political and social issues affecting our state and our society. It is too bad that other members of the Assembly cannot follow Kuehl's example and set aside blind ideology and partisan bickering. She is an example of our political system at its best--a system in which politicians strive for common ground, instead of pandering to the worst fears and prejudices of the people in order to scare up votes.
