In most of the “blue islands” which dominate our nation’s coastal regions (and are scattered throughout its interior), we openly conservative gay folks regularly experience the prejudice of our gay peers and other well-educated leftie types. Seems their undergraduate (and postgraduate) education (coupled with a healthy dose of media bias) has given them a skewed view of the American right.
While you are busy supporting conservatives, they are busy trying to take away your civil rights as a gay American. I am certain that you are aware that the forces on the right side of the aisle have as a centerpiece of their attempts to conserve traditional values a certain contempt for people who, in their words, “choose the gay lifestyle”
Yeah, there are folks like that on the right, but they hardly define the conservative movement. An aversion to homosexuality, however, is hardly the centerpiece of American conservatism, even of those social conservatives promoting traditional values.
It would be nice if our ideological adversaries could at least take the time to understand those they claim to know so well, but about whom they maintain an incredible ignorance.
