Queers vs. Immigrants
Here we go again. Because "queers" and "immigrants" represent two mutually exclusive groups, right?
Things like this make me wonder if there's any hope for any of us. Come on! Remember 1866? Oh, I guess we weren't there.
Richard Kim, Marta Donayre, Pam Spaulding, Christopher Goeken, Brian Charles Clark, Miccaela, Blac(k)ademic on Alas, a Blog, Angela D. Odom, Celia Foster, Tom McGeveran of The Politicker rounds up, but the comments are the best part.
Christine Chavez responds in The Advocate, which then published an open letter signed by a who's who of LGBT folk. On her own blog, Cannick responded to the responses.
I haven't written anything about this because, I hope it's obvious, I think Cannick is dead-wrong and she's an embarassment to queers. (I know I said just the other day that we should never say that about people because they're individuals, but I'm allowing myself an exception.)
