    The whole world is growing up with a Jerry Springer mentality ... that's the cause for the change ... it is not focused to one particular group ... the Human Race is devolving -- if you didn't notice.

    My take is that he's unhappy with the vitriol directed towards two people, Christine Quinn and Dr. Marjorie Hill.

    It's incorrect to extrapolate and say that the entire LGBT community has become mean just because those two people have been attacked.

    I didn't read the article but just the idea of it pisses me off. Hell, yeah, there are bitches in the gay community. So fucking what? At least we don't go around bombing the fuck out of other countries and people who never did a damn thing to us.

    The article desperately needs an editor.

    I would also say that he's speaking of an internet phenomenon as far as the name calling and swearing goes, and it's not remotely particular to gays.

    What I didn't understand were two things: speaking of 'the gay community' as though there is one monolithic community requiring leaders etc.

    The other thing was that he has been involved in LGBT stuff for 40 yearsa or so, and surely, surely, must remember the bitchy nastiness of, say..... 1970:
