So much of what you’ve written makes me sit up and pay attention, because it feels so real to me. I’ve been there, done that.

For me, it’s been more addressing the Aunt Lindas of homophobic bigotry, but the principles are the same.

I find that people who hold racist ideas close to their hearts are often very likely to also be homophobic.

Intersection is real, not just a popular idea of the day.

Great article!
