@MikeE: The flaw in Mike’s criticism is that Nick Symmonds was absolutely right: gays DO need to sweep around their own front doors before they start worrying about Russia.
Gay communities are some of the most openly bigoted places you can find. Gay porn stars refusing to sleep with black guys, gay bars refusing to hire non-security staff that isn’t lily white, gay fashion houses like Andrew Christian refusing to feature anything but white models, gay companies selling black dildoes nicknamed “the thug,” gay magazines never featuring anything but white models. I could go on and on and on.
If gays are *really* serious about ending discrimination, you don’t have to go all the way to Russia: you can start right here in America in Chelsea and in West Hollywood. All these gay campaigns against hate should only be taken seriously when there’s an equally vociferous campaign to integrate our “no blacks, no Asians” Aryan Youth worshipping communities.
Remove the plank from thine own eye before you criticize the toothpick in others’.
