I've said this all along about Topix and the bigots.<quoted text>
One of the great things that happens in this "great social debate" is that normal sane secure people who migh consider opposing same sex rights based on some poorly thought out notion can read this and realize how closely anti-semitism, racism, and homophobia go hand in hand. Then they're think their position.
Thank you anti gay bigots, for being so ugly and so transparent. I think you are largely responsible for the rapid, massive social opinion changes sweeping the nation.
I'm a counselor that works with families with gay kids coming out. I can't tell you how useful a tool these Topix boards are for illustrating the rabid ignorance and bigotry of those that are out to harm gay folks.
I just give them the link and ask them to read ANY story in the Gay/Lesbian Forum. They ALWAYS come back astonished at the chosen ignorance and lack of cognitive reasoning of the bigot brigade and equally astonished at how intelligent and together the gay folks are.
Never fails. So, yeah, THANK YOU, bigots, for exposing yourself so completely on these forums! You do more harm to your own cause that you'll ever know.
