quote: "Militant" gay people have every justification to behave the way they do given the high level of bigotry gay people face in our culture and in the world in general.
quote: Anyone who is an activist (someone who stands up for themselves) is "acting like a douche" according to the mindset responsible for labeling activism "militant/annoying" behavior.
quote: It's the same mentality that demands that gay people remain invisible with statements like "I don't care what you do in the bedroom, but I don't want to hear about it".
quote: The key is to get your point across without being perceived as militant / annoying by those whose opinions can be swayed. You may have die-hard opposition to your cause that will always label you as such
quote: Why do you want to broadcast what you do in the bedroom? I personally don't really want to know what anyone does in the bedroom, gay or straight.
