    Michelle Shocked has admitted to lesbian experiences in the past, so perhaps she could be understood as bi. But I think "candid psychiatrist" is probably right. It's not so much even about homophobia as it is the cry of a very troubled soul. It may be something even deeper than the usual sexual identity issues behind aggressive homophobia.

    What I find especially sad is that disturbed individuals often seek out fundamentalist churches for stability and meaning, when it is the very worst thing to help them deal with their actual problems. I know all too well about this from personal experience.
