The ever-increasing attempts to make us into a nasty, undeserving 'other'

by Jeremy Hooper

Not to sound alarmist, but I can't help but notice the recent uptick in articles like this, which aim to paint us as a roving, tyrannical monolith that has to lie in order to convince the world that we're fit to be here:

Homophile strategists are very adept at manipulating public opinion with an arsenal of six tactics that are based upon deceptions and half‑truths:

- Bait and switch (hide their true nature); and
- Intimidation.
