there exists another debate, which is not political or necessary to govern, and that is the belief we should not exist at all. This is to say nothing of the parents who secretly send their children abroad to Christian gay conversion camps.

I think we can both agree that such views are WELL beyond the semantic use of the term “normal”, which is what kicked off this discussion.

There are people, I suppose, who think because I wear a headscarf I should be jailed or deported, despite the fact that I am a born American who is half Irish.

In a diverse nation of 320B, there is always going to be what is the equivalent of the KKK for both transgendered people and Muslims. Can’t be helped.
