On towleroad.com, there was a news item on Focus on the Family making a recent paper from the American Psychological Association (APA) regarding the consensus of psychological research concerning sexual orientation (Sigh...). In a paper from the APA, there is healthy discussion of the many ways that we have come to understand ourselves as gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender people. In other words, there are as many ways or reasons that we are who we are as there are people in this world. This is nothing new...just ask Alfred Kinsey or Woody Allen. Click here for the APA material.
However, the group Focus on the Family, thinks this is something new, and is trying to make it new, making it a wedge issue in their own sphere of power and realm of shaming and guilting people into closets.
We're here, no matter how we got here; we're queer, no matter how it happened and is happening; and we're not leaving. Why, how, where, when did we get to be straight, gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender people? God knows!
It is time to change.
