    Please quote in that link where Assoc. Justice Kennedy claimed he had a "gay panic attack". Or where that term even appears.

    Actually, not terribly funny. Since "gay panic attack" has been used to wrongly acquit homophobes who have killed or seriously injured gay men. You might be more sensitive about using that term in the future here.

    I'd heard of the term, but didn't really know how it had been used.

    OK, I'll buy that. For the record, it's become a legal term that some courts have accepted in criminal cases. A straight man on trial for having injured or even killed a homosexual man, sometimes one who was in drag, will claim he suffered from excusable "panic" when confronted with the victim's sexual orientation.

    Murderers in the US have been acquited with this defense. Because as we all know, every homosexual wants to sexually assault straight men, who are therefore justified in defending themselves to the death, even when the perpetrator is a physically harmless drag queen, or a slightly built twink.

    I somehow missed the tone of irony and got annoyed looking for where it said that in the article. What a fucking jerk for lying in the thread title. Southbeach redux.

    For the record, and to show that not all gay men are of one mind on this, or most other topics, it doesn't bother me in the least. But, handle it as you will since it's your post. I also don't buy the "sensitivity" line, which is just another manifestation of political rectitude, and another erosion of what used to be called a "good sense of humor." If it makes some people uncomfortable because of their direct personal experiences w/ it, they'll surely speak up, and you can consider whether an apology's in order. If anyone else gloms onto it to push their own vicarious agenda, they need to get a life of their own.

    I already changed the thread title. I didn't intend for any offense toward anyone (for a change) and I probably should have looked it up before I used it.

    If it makes you feel any better - or, better, worse - I'll be offended, even if it comes after the fact, as most self-imposed umbrage does. icon_wink.gif

    From the story, it looks as though a decision was made too quickly without careful examination of the relevant documents. Because such decisions greatly affect the lives of many people, decisions should not be made quickly without considering all the facts. There is no excuse for such carelessness.

    It looks to me like Kennedy was asked to make a snap decision. Anybody might make a mistake when having to do that, and he's no different. He fixed his mistake pretty quickly. Keep in mind that for years he's been one of the leading proponents of gay rights on the Supreme Court. In 2003, he wrote the decision that we gay people had a constitutional right to have sex with each other. Until he wrote that decision, he was in the running to be the next Chief Justice. After he wrote it, there was no way George W. Bush would have picked him. So I say don't judge him too harshly.
