14. What hypocrisy?
You may be unaware of, or choose to overlook, the fact that crossdressing is peculiar to heterosexuals. This is not a distinction that I have invented but one recognized by psychological and GLBT communities alike.

That a gay male should read mockery of Giuliani's fetish as an assault on gays speaks to the extent of the public's lack of understanding about crossdressers. The reasons straight men choose to wear women's clothing are as varied as the manner in which they wear them. I invite you to google 'heterosexual crossdresser' to learn more.

Nonetheless, I am not responsible for this lack of understanding nor for those who misinterpret Giuliani's fetish as an expression of homosexuality. What I am responsible for is helping discredit any potential Republican candidate who threatens Democrats' chances for retaking the White House in 2008.

I was pleased when Sam Walls lost his bid for the Texas state senate after revealing himself as a crossdresser. I was thrilled when Jack Ryan resigned as a candidate for the Senate after his ex-wife, actress Geri Ryan, revealed his proclivity for BDSM and public sex. This despite my personal view that condones any activity between consenting adults.

So whether people reject Rudy over his perceived homosexuality, his unconventional sexual practices, or his blurring of gender identifiction is something I cannot control and don't care much about. My interests lie in stopping the American Taliban from establishing a theocracy in the United States. The surest way to do that is to keep Republicans from controlling Congress and the White House.
