Myth: Most LGBT Americans live in upscale urban gay ghettos like West Hollywood, North Halstead, Chelsea or Hell's Kitchen; or in gilded suburbs like Ferndale, Mich., or Wilton Manors; or in resort communities like Palm Springs, Key West, or Provincetown.

A lot of gay people are anxious to support the myth of wealthy, educated gays. This is foolish. That is why FRC spends so much time making sure that their followers believe that (1) we are all wealthy (2) we are taking wealth that should go to their kinds of families (3) we are educated and powerful (4) we are using our power to destroy the world as they know it (5) we spend wayyyyy too much time traveling, exercising, and having sex,(6) we need to recruit into our little fold because, well, we're lonely without more gay people and (7) we steal children.

If you look at the scape-goating throughout history--think Jews for most of Western history--you'll find all the same arguments. Well, possibly not the exercise and sex part. But the rest is part of a tried and tested formula for demonizing others.

But lots of us are car mechanics, waiters, or hair dressers who are neither wealthy, privileged, nor educated. To state the obvious, we are well-represented in every socio-economic group. This is the same distortion used to vilify Jews.
