LETTER from ADRIAN KUZMINSKI
To the Editor
An earlier column of mine, “Flying the Flag,” generated some strong responses, mostly private.
Some friends were outraged, saying that I lent credibility to homophobic attitudes by citing a comment a community member made about “gay lifestyle.”
That was not my intent, but it clearly had that effect in too many minds, which I deeply regret.
The idea of a “gay lifestyle” is as much of a myth as the idea of a “straight lifestyle.”
How easy it is, I’ve learned, to give support inadvertently to things that you don’t mean to support.
