I’m Straight You Dolt!

In response to some emails and comments I’ve received…

Why is it every time a person asserts that gays should be treated equally as straight folks people assume they are gay?

I am straight, married and have a child and friends of mine would tell you how absurd it is to “assume” I’m gay because of my view on freedom for gay people.  It’s that kind of narrow-mindedness that is intolerable.

Look at civil rights, I know the popular portrait of the movement is that only black folks such as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr and Malcolm X fought for their people, but white folks had a major role in influencing the white congress and white president (LBJ) to sign title seven. Likewise, straight folks have a role in showing the wider culture that gay people are “just people” and should be treated equal under the Constitution of the United States.

If God exists he/she can do with them/me what it wants to after death, but while they are citizens of the USA they should have equal rights.

Cheers,

Tom

  1. Oh we’re all mistaken for gay at some point. It just means you’ve reached the level of awesome.
