Another given of gay culture…

“Another given of gay culture is righteousness. Self-righteousness is perhaps an inevitable by-product of liberation movements, but gay righteousness is particularly offensive in its ability to be simultaneously apologetic and self-aggrandizing. Apologetic because it doesn’t challenge the structures of society, it simply says ‘straights are being horrid to us’ (repeatedly and at great length in the gay media). Self-aggrandizing because the mantra of oppression drowns out all else in its repetition, inducing an indignation out of proportion to the issue.” – Toby Manning (from ‘Anti-Gay’)

Or how the overwhelmingly white, male, Western ‘gay community’ refuses all self-examination and especially all critical appreciation of their privilege and clings onto a never-ending victim status based on their sexuality.
