It’s hard not to applaud this enough.

Perhaps somebody (on the social left, of course; the social right would not be interested in this level of introspection) should give some thought to the bias and bigotry inherent in speculating upon the sexual preference or gender identity of every flipping person, fictional or nonfictional, who chooses a path other than status quo, heteronormative marriage, or projects a gender identity other than male/macho or female/girlygirl.

This is the exact same behavior that led gay men and women, back in the “closeted” days, to have a girl-friend or guy-friend that they would bring to family outings — — because if they didn’t, the biddies of the family would speculate on their sexual preference.

It seems sometimes that we’ve just replaced the biddies with lefty faux sociologists as the people doing the speculation.
