You’re embarrassed for ME? Wow! The most horrifyingly homophobic article I’ve read in years just appeared in Illumination, and Dr Mehmet Yildiz’s response was yet more homophobia in defending that article. He claimed that we LGBTQ are who we are out of preference. Mehmet is obviously a disgusting homophobic bigot. And you’re embarrassed for ME? Let me count the ways I don’t care about your embarrassment.

Chris Hedges and Linda Caroll, both of you, and all of Medium, need to know the ugliness that is happening here.

Writer. Runner. Marine. Airman. Former LGBTQ and HIV activist. Former ActUpNY and Queer Nation. Polyglot. Middle-aged, uppity faggot.
