Don’t be startled!

Filed under: community organizing,human rights,laws,media — caiso @ 10:08

Did your week begin on Wednesday?

Does anyone still read The Bomb? Either way, you know you’ve made some kind of news if you make the front page of The Bomb. While the reporting uses the paper’s classic all-but-name-dropping and scandal-mongering approach, and the facts are, well, creative, what the piece essentially says is that there are lots of us, that discrimination and abuse exist, that they hurt, and that we’re pressing for rights (they added the marriage part). What the paper never says is that gays should not have equal rights. And the lead ends with the words: “Don’t be startled.”

What do you think of the piece? Leave a comment.
