Maybe I'm just hung over, but sometimes the LGBT blogosphere gets me in a real funk.
What a sad group we are, badgering celebrities about their personal lives, boycotting and ridiculing them when they don't live up to our ridiculous standard of advocacy, publicly shaming people who have been charged with but not convicted of crimes, throwing daggers at public officials upon their outing. Would you want to come out if you knew this is what you would face?
The message I get from all this hate flying around our own community is that queers are liars and creeps deserving of nothing but scorn. If we treat our own this badly, why are we surprised when other people treat us badly, too?
