Something that the Republican Party habitually fails to see is that demanding EQUAL rights is not demanding a SPECIAL right. We are asking/demanding to be given the same consideration our hetero fellow citizens get as matter of course.

Secondly, I sometimes wish I was a kind enough person to have any sympathy for Log Cabin Republicans who find themselves being "othered" but I don't. A prime example of this, although in this case, it is one person, is Caitlyn Jenner who actually seemed to delude herself into thinking that because she has a history of being an entitled white male, that would translate over to her as transgendered and she would have a special in with the likes of Trump.

I consider her and the Log Cabin Republicans both to be deluded, and even more so DELIBERATELY self-deluded because all the evidence for their mistreatment is there for all to see from day one. They just refused to see it.

In other words, I have no sympathy. If they had wanted to be part of the Gay or transgendered community and accepted as such....they should have known who their real enemy was and voted accordingly.

Yes, I am afraid I am one of those gay men who, if I met someone that I thought at first might be the love of my life, and then found out he was a Log Cabin Republican, I would have to reconsider. Just not sure I would have the patience to deal with that in a lover.


68 and retired, and living my dream free, knowing that only by working with a union am I fortunate enough to be able to be where I am.
