MINOT, N.D. — Have you ever run into one of those people who will go to great lengths to tell you that they’re not anti-gay, they just don’t understand why gay people have to shove their gayness in your face?
They’re fine with the LGBTQ+ community, as long as they stay in the closet, and we’re supposed to treat these proclamations as though they were enlightened postures.
How noble of them to allow that the gays can exist as long as they’re out of sight and out of mind.
Another variation of this silliness is the people who will assure you that they’re all for free speech and free expression, but Mike Pence’s book must be tossed on a figurative bonfire in the name of, uh, fighting fascism?
This is the logic of those trying to shame you for acknowledging, in some public format, that you’ve been vaccinated.
