    The 'we' and the 'them' may be similar when it comes to decency and accountability. Both (all) sides have their vocal and silent, their good and bad, with all the extremes. Judgmental is good (constructive criticism) when it gets people to reflect on themselves and learn to improve themselves and in doing so makes for a more tolerant society and better world.

    Yes, fuckups like him are hinderances to the overall battle for gay rights. But there are fuckups on all sides, that's just human reality. Unfortunately we can't afford to fuckup.

    It's such a disservice to all those who have been real victims of gay bashing.

    Really: you should of tryed coming out as a wee child in the 1960s in the Aussie bus, as a poofter. Then you too would well know all about gay bashing as I do, for refusing to step down on my stance on same sex attraction.

    But then you being a member of the left wing here, also have not endured the brutality that I and many other conservatives have had to endure here at RJ. Yes they could well be called gay bashing. But that would also mean the liberals would have to stand up to the plate for their brutality against other homosexuals too.
