I just have to share this dialog from a Metafilter conversation about Anita Bryant.

Whacko Fundie Guy taunts the front-page poster of the thread with this:

What, you can't spell "S&M" out? :)

Sadomasochism


And I nattily reply thus:
--
Ooh. Shocking.

Look, why don't you just admit that you're hoping to win support for your unpopular position by evoking an emotional reaction in people? "Won't somebody please think of the children!?!"

Like Gutenberg, I'd really like to know why people like Bryant get so bent out of shape about people's sexual practices. It would make sense to me if you could show me statistics proving that homosexuals tend to be, say, predatory toward children. There you'd have a grievance I could grasp. But the fact is that, by and large, it is not homosexuals who are guilty of those crimes. Gay people and fetish people are guilty of performing consenting acts in the privacy of their own homes. Are you really trying to tell me that the far-right, bible-thumping uproar against these guys is exclusively out of Christian love for their souls? You guys sure love yourselves a bunch of leather fags, then.
