Being Gay in Tucson Hurtsby Tip O'Neill on Aug. 03, 2012, under Arizona, Bigotry, Catholic, Christian, GLBT, Republican, Rmoney, santorum, Vante
It am amazed at the polarization centering around Mr. Huckabee’s Chick Fil A
appreciation day. I expected it to be popular in Alabama but not here in Tucson.
The sight of so many of my neighbors gathering to openly express their bigotry
has made me look at Tucson quite differently than I did just a few days ago.
I saw this excellent article by a new Tucson resident that I want to recommend.
A small excerpt:
That line at Chik-Fil-A touched me like a banner of unwelcome, like a vigilante caravan of people who could hardly wait for the opportunity to openly express their belief that I was an enemy to be conquered — someone they longed to see be put back in her place as an anamoly, a threat to society, a pervert, a half-person.
