You are a disgusting homophobic bigot.

Spare me your vile swill.

We are not pork.

We are full human beings who demand and expect full equality of treatment under the law and in civil society.

In telling us that people ought to have the right to discriminate against us, you show yourself to be the precise moral equivilent of a member of the KKK, of the Nazi party, of the preachers who right up through the 1980s decried “mixed” marriages from their pulpits.

Well, the people who preached that it’s wrong for black people to marry white people or for black children to go to school with white children were wrong on the exactly the same level that you are.

Understand that you’re on the wrong side of history.

Good, decent, loving people will shame you, shout you down, and fight you tooth and nail until your obnoxious beliefs are wiped from the face of the Earth.

Is that intolerant of us?

Of course not, no more intolerant than fighting Nazis or fighting the Klan.

It’s already shocking that you advocate stigmatizing us and discriminating against us.

Just wait.

Every day that passes will be a day in which more people understand exactly how foul and loathesome you are, just as almost everyone today understands how foul and loathesome racists and antisemites are.

We’re here, we’re queer, get used to it — because we’re not going anywhere until we win.

We will accept nothing less than full equality.

You and your fellow bigots are going down hard.

That’s a promise.
