going out on a limb... referring to myself as a "blogger" considering how infrequent my post have been lately. However, I'd like to say that this is one gay white blogger who isn't going to rant about how black people took away gay rights.

I will say this: Gay people are in the process of making it harder on themselves right now.

There is a nationwide protest scheduled for Saturday. I'm okay with that.

What I'm not okay with is some of the behavior and vitriol in the gay community since Nov. 4.

Check this out.

There was also an occasion of people ripping a cross out of a female counter-protester's hands and stomping on it.


Do you think this is helping "our" cause?

It's not.

The kind of crap that's been going on across the nation, especially in California, has the potential to do WAY more harm than good.

Shut your mouth, stay away from your keyboard, take a deep breath, and try again.

Hate will get you nowhere.

I thought we were supposed to concentrate on not liking Mormons? The list of people to blame just keeps growing.

I like the statement in the article about blaming the over 50% of voters in San Fransisco that didn't even vote.

I think the blame should placed with those people, those that did not vote. Those that didn't care or didn't take a stand, until it was too late. Now they are upset?
