    It's not entirely hypocritical, it's blindness -- he can't see that his statements about being free (but abide by my conditions!) are double-speak cover for authoritarianism.

    "Thirty-one* states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons. In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them. They should set up Pink Pistols task forces, sponsor shooting courses and help homosexuals get licensed to carry. And they should do it in a way that gets as much publicity as possible. "

    Re: OK to OUT - Part II

    I am absolutely opposed to outing anybody. Someoneís sexuality is their own business. In an ideal world our sexuality should not be an issue. Unfortunately it seems most of the world have a long way to go in that respect.

    Although I am totally out Ė I understand that it is each individualís right to chose if and when they come out. Outing someone can not only hurt the person, but their family and friends too. Experience tells me that in the long run if you are honest about yourself; you are much happier.

    I do however find it harder to condemn the outing of hypocritical politicians. In Britain during the eighties and early nineties we had a Conservative government that spouted family values and opposed the equalisation of the age on consent for gay men. They also introduced Section 28. However, at the same time some of the governments MPís were having extra marital affairs or were closeted gays.

    Fortunately things have changed over the last ten years. The Labour Government has generally been gay friendly and less moralising than the Conservatives were. Therefore, I do not think it is justified to pry into Labour MPís personal lives or out them.

    That said Conservative MPís do deserve the same consideration too. Hypocritical though one or two may be, so great is the case for equal rights for gays and lesbians, we should not need to resort to outing. If anything outing damages peoples perceptions a gay activism.
