There seems to be two types of gay persons in the gay movement: Pushing gay and being gay.
I was watching an episode of “The United States of Tara” on Netflix recently and there was an episode with a story line about Tara’s son, who is discovering his homosexuality, and the “gay crowd” in school was pressuring him to come out and be gay. When I say gay I am referring to the universal stereotypical attributes of a gay person. They pick at his clothes and make him believe he has to be part of their crowd and be a certain way: Their stereotypical gay way. This is not good. On multiple levels.
The new generation finds itself in a gayer friendly world, but some of them are getting pressure from their homosexual peers to live up to a mission of equality that they might not want to be a part of, or associated with. They find themselves struggling to find their own identity sans being pigeon held in a movement or group.
I am all for gay rights, get married, have children, but I think in the long run you’re missing the boat on your methods for acquiring equality. There are gay teenagers out there that are scared to come out. Not cause their heterosexual peers will judge them, but because their homosexual peers will.
