98. Hiya (((Lost))) LTNS
I've just had it. I really have. I've held my silence for months, being unwilling to jump into the fray. I just can't hold it any longer. The pain from being stepped on and being told to suck it up because a vanishingly small, extremely lucky few are being tokenized is just more than I can any longer bear in silence.

It is far too much of an insult as a gay man and a human being with human feelings.

I wouldn't do such a thing to someone else and I resent it being done to me and millions like me.

It would be unreasonable of us to whine if political realities (on one hand) forced us to wait a year or so if we KNEW we would achieve real, measurable goals. We can do that. We've waited all our lives.

It is NOT unreasonable on the other hand to expect when promises are made that they won't be broken within hours by the most insulting of actions and in the most insulting of terms. It is NOT unreasonable to be upset when promises and flowery speeches of "fierce advocacy" are made (and our money, time, votes, effort, and support are garnered) then repeated actions that stab us in the back are undertaken.

Once, okay. Twice, we'd be cautious. Three times, we'd have cause to be less-than-enthused.

But what we have here is a long, unbroken, repetitive record of saying one thing and doing something else entirely egregious. THAT is why we're pissed.

Hey, Lost, PM me again some time. I've missed your "voice".
