Thanks Malcolm,

While I do concentrate on LGBTQ issues in my writing, I guess that’s because I have only so much energy, and because I tend naturally to focus what I have on those issues that hit me most personally.

But you’re so right. We need to be no nonsense, and we need to remember that people who are trying to stigmatize and marginalize minorities pretty much all come a similar place — one of tribalism, Othering, and perpetuation of privilege.
