A Further Apology to My Straight Readers

A number of my heterosexual readers have privately expressed concern about what appeared to be my endorsement of gay marriage on this site, so last night I met with a few of them at their little “clubhouse.” I was freshly reminded of how much the wrong word or phrase can hurt whole groups of people. They explained to me that if this goes through—gay marriage—you don’t know what might happen, heterosexuals might end up experiencing job discrimination, vicious attacks in public streets and parks, denial of housing and other opportunities, not to mention feelings of alienation and exclusion.
