NOM finally admits it: They're the ones playing offense

by Jeremy Hooper

What do you do when your organizational work geared around discrimination is repudiated by the highest court in the land? Why you admit you're the side that's on the offensive, natch:

Um, yeah—we all know that, NOM. The anti-LGBT movement has always been the antagonistic one. Without organizations trying to tell us that we are wrong, do not belong, and are not entitled to certain deserved rights, there would be no such thing as a "culture war." You on the conservative side declared that "culture war" against our normalcy years and years ago. You've always been on the offense; we've always been the ones defending our lives and loves from lies, bans, denigrations, and untruths.

It's always been obvious. I am, however, glad to hear you all admitting it!
