I’m a libertarian and a child of San Francisco in the 1970s. What this means is that I believe, very strongly, that people should be allowed to engage in same sex relationships. I also believe that people who are homosexual (and any subset of that, such as lesbian, bisexual, etc.), should not be harassed or discriminated against.
The 1990s and the 21st century, however, have seen something entirely different from the drive to tolerance and individual freedom that I support. Gay-ness has become part of a larger political agenda that has nothing to do with an individual’s sexuality, and everything to do with breaking down traditional American morality. This morality is not just window-dressing. It is the nation’s backbone.
A Reluctant Scribe, who happened to be near ground zero as gay activists expanded their range beyond merely freeing themselves from discrimination and repression, guest posts at Brutally Honest with an insight into the enormous political agenda that underlies the formerly sympathetic gay rights movement.
