    As long as not all gay people are white (and we aren't!), it means that racism is a "gay issue." As long as not all gay people are male (and we aren't!), it means that patriarchy is a "gay issue." As long as all gay people need clean water and communities free of toxics, then environmentalism is a "gay issue."
    Among the straight people I know who are actively in human rights struggles for queer folks like myself, most aren't looking for a tit-for-tat, but consider themselves personally affected by discrimination because it affects their friends, their family members, and their co-workers, and because living in a culture that promotes discrimination takes a bite out of the humanity of everyone who's part of that culture.
