silence = death (don't call it a comeback)


I was watching CNN last night, horrified about a report of an attack at a gay bar in New Bedford, MA by an eighteen year old with a hatchet and a gun. But what horrifies me the most is the realization that there's little difference between the attacker in this instance and the people in our government who want to deny and take away basic rights to LGBT persons in our country. Whether you beat us down with rhetoric and laws, or hatchets and guns, it's tantamount to abuse of a fellow human being. The more our government says that gays are bad and unequal the more we'll see of these unstable people thinking it's okay to attack us, to try to kill us. It seems like I see stories like this more and more every year, and more often than not these unstable people driven by the misconceptions and discrimination inspired by our "lawmakers" are not prosecuted because they committed a hate crime, and it's "determined" that the crime had nothing to do with the victim being gay or lesbian.

So what do we do? Why are we—gay, lebian, bisexual and transgender Americans—paying taxes to a goverment that doesn't represent us? Why are we satisfied with the false assumption that we're "accepted" just because of television and film? Why aren't we taking a cue from Fred Phelps and other quasi-religious wingnuts that have hijacked ACT-UP; why are their voices heard and not ours? How much longer will it be before we're sitting in the backs of busses, denied the right to vote, or rounded up onto that island everybody's been talking about since the outbreak of AIDS? Why is it okay that people like Chad Allen or Barney Frank are still refered to as "openly gay?" And how is that moniker different from "known" or "alleged Communist?" Can somebody tell me what year this is? Didn't we move into a new century six years ago, or are we back in the 1950's or 1960's? Is gay the new black, or are still a bunch of pinkos?
