Let me preface this by saying I've been spending (admittedly) too much time on an amazing blog I found called The Sexist. It's especially beneficial to me so close to Valentines Day/Singles Awareness Day (SAD is a whole other outrage entirely). It fuels my inner rage, you see. :)
Usually, I rage mostly about the gender ignorant topics they bring up. It is called "The Sexist", after all. But sometimes they bring up issues that are LGBT specific and the rage in me multiplies (If anyone needs reminding, I'm the "B" in LGBT).
It was an entry about a mother's outrage over her daughter being exposed to *gasp* a lesbian that turned my breakfast of waffles and coffee into an all-you-can-eat buffet of "What that bitch say?!".
The mother (apparently pretty pleased with herself) wrote to PFOX (Parents & Friends Of Ex-Gays) about the topic. She says:
"Our first-grader astonished her father at the end of the past school year as he dropped her off at our local Washington DC public school, Horace Mann Elementary, where he had attended school in the early 60s. She relayed to him that her teacher announced her impending marriage—to another woman—to the class. Following her revelation, this teacher encouraged questions from the children.
Our daughter also mentioned a book the teacher read aloud, “Uncle Bobby’s Wedding,” about two male “gay” guinea pigs, promoted by the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual Transgender Lobby for children. Since homosexual activists cannot reproduce their own children, recruitment to their cause (especially at a young age, before parents have raised such sensitive and controversial topics with their children) is essential to the political agenda of promoting homosexuality and “gay” marriage."
Please not the items that have been emboldened. You read them? Good. Here are a few points:
A) Why is gay in quotations?
B) We can, actually, reproduce. I'm not sure who told you otherwise, but just because I'm attracted to/have had committed relationships with women doesn't mean my baby factory ain't workin'.
And finally the most important point:
I am not gay because I am political. I am political because I am gay
