Another reminder that the closet and the constant socially reinforced shame of a non-heterosexual orientation can warp an individual:

But that won't be the story... Instead, it'll be breathless reporting that the case "has taken an unusual turn," as if anything gay or bisexual or non-gender conforming is exotic and exciting. How long before the homophobes take up the mantra that alleged Craigslist killer Philip Markoff committed his crimes because he wasn't straight? 5...4...3...2...1... There we go.

(Just for the record, Markoff was a College Republican. Just sayin'.)
