10. Probably not in the long run. But her students saw the backlash and she likely won't be speaking

about this topic ever again. She's a guidance counselor and the school district let her off easy. This is more than enough reason to declare her unfit for her job and I'm sure her superiors and friends (whether pro- or anti-marriage equality) have told her to shut it for her own good.

Also, this keeps the issue fresh in the minds of advocates and their allies. The occasional asshole generally helps a cause (assuming the cause hasn't "won" yet). Plus, it's not in the South so it also reminds people that it is a national problem, not a regional one.

Edit: Oops, she's not a guidance counselor but a special education teacher. Her job isn't likely at risk, but I'm willing to wager she won't be as vocal about this issue next time.
