Anti-gay stand is bigotry

SHARE Anti-gay stand is bigotry

Oh, please, Karen McCabe (Readers' Forum, Aug. 2). "It's about standing up for what's right" (regarding gay rights). Since "right" is a subjective term, let's look at some things. You're not the one being prevented from getting married. You're not the one who can't get medical coverage for a lifelong partner. You're not the one who is constantly reminded that a majority of people think your life is sick and immoral.

Gays and lesbians may be hypocritical from time to time, but we accept that label. There isn't a person alive who isn't hypocritical. You, however, are a bigot. Wear the label with pride.
