Wherein Peter LaBarbera proves my point

by Jeremy Hooper

Earlier this week, when presenting a clip of the American Family Association's Monica Cole accusing NBC's "The New Normal" of degrading morality by simply presenting a same-gender–headed family unit, I referred to the "old normal" of far-right heterosexual Christians denigrating people like me and families like mine. In response, Peter LaBarbera called me an extremist and accused me of demonizing different-gender–headed families:

Not sure how that works exactly. I'm actually quite fond of my straight friends, family members, and their respective children.

Oh, and last time I checked, I wasn't the one of us who took a screen cap from a video of the other's marriage ceremony and wrote the word "perversion" on it. That seems like the "extremist" behavior to me.

But what do I know? I'm just a homo, therefore built for public flogging at the hands of heterosexual men who make the truly odd choice to build their careers around hurting and denigrating other kinds of humans.
