I am angry. I am sick and tired. I am outraged.
The relentless attacks on gay men, lesbians, transsexuals by everyone from Martin Ssempa in Uganda to the Pope in the Vatican, from Muslims to Baptists, from the likes of Peter Sprigg and John McCain, from the courts in California to the US Congress, seem to be getting more bold, more hateful, more violent, more frequent and more public.
How is it that so many (supposedly) heterosexual, ignorant, uninformed, opinionated, self-righteous, and self-proclaimed experts on homosexuality are given credibility to publicly define the basic assumptions and the terms of discussion and debate about our lives, our rights, our morals, our love, and our very existence?
Our lives, our sexuality, who we choose to love, and our civil rights should not even be up for debate. That we even dignify these idiots by taking seriously their participation is counter-productive. There can be no rational discourse with irrational people; and there will be no reasoning with those who use their irrational religious beliefs or cheap, erroneous "behavioral science" opinions to justify their hatred and bigotry.
