I agree Lex but the really outrageous thing is why gay men have sex in public bathrooms in the first place. The heterosexual world condemed gay sex for so long and made it illegal, thereby driving gay men into the closet and into the dark backrooms and secret places where we could meet. There were no gay church socials or dating services or public community meetings where gay people could meet and socialize like the straight world around them. We were doomed to cruise street corners and public bathrooms and porno movie theaters thereby making us the sexual outlaws that entire generations of gay men became. The entire act of hidden sex acts became eroticized and accepted by us as the normal thing to do. Even in these conscience times we live in where gay is a household word and gay rights are taken for granted by many, where millions march each year since 1969 in gay pride parades where we are seem on television, where we have openly gay and out celebrities to speak for us, there is still no real equality amoung the sexual preferences of gay, lesbian, transgendered and bisexual people. We are still looked upon as criminals and perverted diviants by the straight moral majority and even the average straight folk from middle America. The very idea and nerve of homos to even think that we are equal to the straight world with gay marriages and adoption of children is considered an outrage by most of the straight world. It will be a long time before the world is really an equal place to live. Look how long it has been since racism was the rule of the day and how long since women were treated as equals to men and ask yourself if anything has really changed. Racism in America is still rampant and vile and particularly obvious amoung gay people as well. women still make less than men in the work force and gays are a joke to laugh at by most of the worlds standards. But I say, never give up. Fight your way to the top. Don't take no for an anwser and remember above all else that the creator who made us all made us equal. we all bleed the same, and we all die at the end of each life. But while we're here I say spit in the eye of the haters and fight for your rights. And most importantly vote, write letters and let the rulung bastards know how you feel. It ain't over till it's over and I for one intend to keep up the fight until the end. As for people like larry Craig, yes he is a homophobe and a bigot and yes he is guilty of hating gays and trying to keep them down but he is also a victim of the same culture that taught him to hide his true self and like mixed races from the past has tryed to "pass" just to get along in this world. I pity him, for his life is ruined and the mirror that he must find himself hidden in, will reveal to him and all those that he knows and loves, just what a wasted life such deception brings. Perhaps others who have suffered his fate will see themselves reflected in the drama of all of this and take a turn towards real freedom and happiness. Otherwise the circle turns and nothing changes and we are doomed to repeat the past.
