I strongly urge you to fully read and follow Don Charles' site, Ignorance is Plentiful, that highlights the counterproductive and, in fact, traitorous actions engaged in and/or embraced by assorted self-described "Gay Activists" and others who burlesque and revel in fulfilling negative stereotypes that are used by homophobes to justify their homophobia, and who also seem to revel in pariah status as "sexual outlaws," and who often demand equality with their voice but contradict the seriousness and seeming authenticity of that demand by their actions.
Here is a mere excerpt from the latest post on Don Charles' site:
“Our movement will never be taken seriously by the greater society unless we act like we want to be taken seriously . . . we should not be cavorting in the streets like fools when thousands of LGBT folk around the world are being so viciously persecuted, imprisoned and murdered. It's inexcusably self-indulgent.”
Predictably, "Free Speech" types popped out of the woodwork to defend Pride parade excesses. “Listen, no matter what, we're not going to stop Pride celebrations from happening, " stated someone who identified herself as JamieMcG. "And we're not going to stop people from wanting to celebrate who they are, nor should we, ever. But we can do our best to make sure that we are taking responsibility in whatever way we can to get our message out there.”
That’s the point, though: Getting the message out “whatever way” just ain’t gonna cut it! We've got to do it the right way. We’ve got to make a credible statement. This is what far too many Gay people fail to grasp. I elaborated:
“When an oppressed people have their minds on freedom, you can tell. There is a seriousness and a determination about them. That's what you saw in the demeanor of the '60s desegregation marchers. That's not what you see in the demeanor of most Pride parade participants! Tell me, how does suggestive posing, outrageous costumes, and public intoxication communicate the gravity of our struggle? There's a difference between a community showing the world its diversity and a community showing the world its ass!“
Please read Ignorance is Plentiful It treats the LGBT rights struggle with the seriousness that it deserves, and gives no quarter to those who, seemingly unwittingly, seek to undermine that struggle from within.
