    I've been familiar with the Phelps group since the early '90's-- horrendous people, but they do have the right to be horrendous.

    I agree with you about the selective outrage.  I noticed it myself.  It's like, hey, now that he's started protesting the good people, that guy needs to be stopped.

    I remember the "on your own" thing from when I was in college and I was being repeatedly harassed by anti-gay bigots and pretty much no one wanted to hear it.  That was in the 1980's and I suspect that while there's significant improvement, there's still a lot of bigotry out there.  I get stuck in my bubble sometime (my marriage is legally recognized both where I live and work), and I need to be shaken out of the perspective that things are good just because New England doesn't have as much institutionalized homophobia as the rest of the country.
