In case you want to see how assimilationist gay marriage proponents respond to a scathing satirical indictment...

Well, here you go (in the comments section) -- but don't forget that I warned you...

I'm really glad you posted on Bilerico. I had no idea so many people in our community have that attitude toward queers and any criticism of the organizations that are supposed to represent us. :\

ugh, fucking faggo... wait, don't want to get charged with a hate crime. I hate bilerco so much.

Darling, I know you meant "fucking LGBT"-- that's not a hate crime, is it? Better get the funding more war reauthorization bills, I'll be back in a moment...

Wow, Oh Mattilda you have done it again. Thanks, no THANKS!! I am not going to say anymore as I have given up talking about "gay" this and that. This 62 year old gueer finds he doesn't have much in common with the lgbt movement. You know I thank the lucky stars there are people like you and some of my other friends I have met in blog land.

Keep it up. Will do a link to this article to A Few Queers On The Prowl. I meant to do it the other day when I first read it on your site but was working with Rowland on his posting.

Be well baby, take good care we need you and all other young queers.

P.S I can't really stand Bilerco very much and hardly go over there at all. Gave it up a good while back.

yay for "big city dykes"! What's up with the gay bashing from the upstanding LGBT community? Thanks to you and Yasmin for fielding that madness.

love, hil

Richard, thank you thank you for the support and understanding -- and your own devastating critiques!!!

Hilary, big-city dykes are taking over -- I can't wait for dinner...

i have this sick fascination with reading the comments on your article posts. they simultaneously make me laugh and cry. it is like you're talking to a big rainbow-colored wall of stupid. i swear.

most of my friends that are gay could care less about issues that matter, like HIV/AIDS research, yet they sit around bitching in their facebook statuses about marriage "equality" and don't ask, don't tell. there is no one here that questions stuff like that, so seeing my own views articulated in a mainstream publication is refreshing. too bad the response is all shit-tossing.

Gayasinstupid, "big rainbow-colored wall of stupid," indeed!

And I'm glad that seeing these perspectives reflected in a gaystream publication is refreshing, because sometimes I wonder: am I just furthering the notion that "all sides" are being represented (by posting there, I mean), but as long as a few people are inspired I tend to think that maybe it's important...
