I can intellectually fully understand Peter Tatchell’s argument here – so why do I find the thought so utterly depressing? If I’m not a gay man I have no idea what the hell I’m meant to be.
I totally agree with what Peter has said and those that heckled him in his speech should have been listening more carefully! Homosexuality is becoming more and more acceptable, one day it will be the norm – thus homophobia will cease to exist!
There were male-affectional men long before there were labels for us. The labels are irrelevant. We’re not going to go away. Homosexuality–with or without the label–will never be “the norm.” That’s just another label.
