Response to Sartain

I wasn’t aware publishing hate messages was the norm on SMU campus. Or that one person could speak for the whole “straight community”. That Sartain was the embodiment of rightful behaviors. Who is he to say what behavior is “deviant”, as he says? What huge ego he has to plagiarize Hitler. Hail Joel-SS!

Seriously. It is shocking that the media in SMU would publish such hatred. It doesn’t matter who is targeted. Hate begets hate. And as much as Sartain believes that he “loves the gay community”, in reality he is clearly advocating the derogatory Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy. Why else would he suggest people to move if they feel uncomfortable? He might as well say if blacks feel discriminated they should pick up and move to Africa, or if Jews don’t like it here move to Israel, hell lets just kick all the Mexicans back across the border for protesting. While we are on this hate trip, lets just make all women quit their jobs and get them a kitchen apron?

If you don’t think Sartain’s opinion is anti-gay then you all are unintelligent, brainwashed, passive or disgusting as he is. Has it crossed the minds of the community that it is perhaps the “homophobic” attitude that is repulsive. That their paranoia is creating intolerant and offensive effects in the community. And not to forget, denying the freedom of expression to everyone.
