I read this comment elsewhere:
I do not think "straight" people have a say in whether or not to "out" closeted people. It's the same principle as the understanding that White people can't use the "N" word while people of color can.
Okay, so that means only gay people with one leg can out another one legged gay person, I guess.
WHAT A LOAD OF EXCLUSIVE BOLLOCKS!
It is one of my most profound sadnesses that the oppressed look to their oppression as the only thing special about themselves and fight for the right to be regarded as the most oppressed. This leads to so much fighting between different groups of oppressed people (black v. gay, worker v. immigrant etc) that the oppressors must be pissing themselves laughing at us all.
My name is MadPriest and I am mad. That doesn't make me in the slightest bit better or more important or more oppressed than anybody else who is struggling against the powers and dominions of this fucked up world. Which is why I rarely talk about it preferring instead to poke my nose into other people's problems.
So sue me for caring.
