12. My hope is that EVERYBODY will come out of the closet

and by that I mean that all of the people who have sat silently letting politicians trash gay people just to score a few political points now have woken up and seen that they must speak up.

Most people are wise enough to see that many of these rabid public homophobe GOPers were gay themselves. The world didn't fall apart and gawd did not smite them (even if the cops and the press did.)

So it has opened up people's eyes to reality. "Teh gay" is not going away; it can't be shamed away or legislated away. It is a fact of life and the sooner we give same sex couples the same rights as everybody else, the sooner we can heal all of the hurt that the hatred and the shame and the lies have cost us.
