We’re Here, We’re Here, Get Used To It is a problem for you Amy Michele Rueff Lepore?

Are you serious? That shocks me.

If you have a problem with that, then you’re as much of an asshole as that disgusting homophobe of a baker is.

We ARE fucking here. We ARE fucking Queer. You ARE going to have to fucking get used to it.

We absolutely refuse to be stigmatized or treated as second-class humans. I don’t care what that baker’s religious beliefs are, and I don’t care what yours are. If those beliefs justify discriminating against us and refusing us service, then those beliefs are nauseating and horrifying. They’re every bit as nauseating and horrifying as the Christian beliefs that mandated racial segregation when I was boy.

Fuck that noise, fuck that baker, and fuck anyone who doesn’t accept us as fully human and fully equal.

That piece of shit baker won a partial victory, but mark my words, by the time this is over, we’re going to grind evil bigots like him into the dirt. This ain’t over.

It’s a war. He may have won a battle, but we won’t stop until homophobic bigotry is as shameful and as illegal as racist bigotry.

That’s a promise. Don’t ever communicate with me in this way again. Your comment to me is obnoxious and insulting. Don’t you dare do anything like that again.

Homophobia is as shameful as racism. It’s evil. You are shameful. You owe me an apology.
