Gays should never fear the desperation of those who choose to be our enemies. But we should fight them head on. And Downs’ column reveals a sad fact, not only about the gay community, but many of those we anoint as our leaders. Unlike our brothers and sisters in foreign countries, we have the means to fight back, but we rarely do.
And by fighting back, I don’t mean solely street protests or acts of useless spontaneity fueled by rage. I mean a steady and consistent stream of calling out religious right lies.
[Hillary] told us that we are human beings. [Downs] is telling us that we should be cowards.
