There are times you can really regret writing something. This is one of those times.
I still think that. I also think that the AFA — who today stated that I agree with them — are full of shit. I’m not linking you to their bile. You can find them easily enough, but I’ll quote.
Think about it for a minute. If you were falsely accused of engaging in sexually aberrant behavior, would you waste a single minute challenging such a scurrilous rumor?
Even lesbian websites are agreeing with me about the importance of Ms. Kagan declaring herself on this matter. For instance, from LezGetReal, “A Gay Girl’s View on The World:”
I’m not going to respond to the entire post because it’ll anger me beyond my ability to function, but just this one quote is making my blood boil.
1. Elena Kagan — straight, bi or gay — plainly does not believe that homosexuality constitutes “sexually aberrant behavior”. Whatever her sexual orientation, she has stood up for the rights of gay people, most notably in a protest over the military’s Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.
2. I do not in any way agree with the AFA on why Elena Kagan should come out of the closet. I will state the reasons I think she should come out.
Again, I’m not going to go through the post point-by-point (because I have to actually do some work today) but I’m guessing those are not the reasons the AFA think Elena Kagan should be out.
I’m guessing their reasons are a lot less concerned with her well-being and the well-being of other gay people, than it is about ensuring that gay people never get anywhere in life.
Just for clarity — I do not agree with the AFA about anything. Ever.
