    Matt Hissy is on his statewide staff, not sure in which role. He is a gay felon, who has some interesting views: http://m.youtube.com/...

    The world is run by those that show up. In other words: GO KNOCK DOORS!

      Oh yes. Gay people frustrate him, yet he's gay himself.

      I understand his views there honestly. I'm gay myself, but sometimes gay guys can be really really hurtful, but that's no reason to completely disregard gay people altogether and work against their rights by way of your employment. Ugh.

        I think a lot of unsavory characteristics about gay culture are a result of the oppression and resulting backlash against a restrictive hetero-normative popular culture.

        I'd also think you'd find hurtful people in all types of groups.

          I've found that most of the unsavory pieces of the modern gay community buy into the restrictive hetero-normative popular culture and try to enforce that hetero-normativity onto those who break their mold.

          E.G. the "no fats, fems, or minorities" standpoint that has become so dominant within gay culture over the last 10 years.
