You simply must...

You know, there are so many reasons to be offended by this, but for me, one of the worst is the idea that being gay or lesbian and "family friendly" are mutually exclusive, or that we have to "protect the kids," because heaven knows, gay people aren't something you can discuss around their tender young ears. It is so offensive and it makes me so angry.

How do you combat this kind of thinking? I just don't know. I mean, I would take the values of my gay and lesbian friends and acquaintances over the so-called family values of these people any day. My friends' values are truly the American values - fairness, respect, decency, active participants in the life of the community where they live. They're a heck of a lot more wholesome than the people involved with this boycott.
