We probably have a couple dozen people passing through the birth center every year who would have been hunted like Matthew Shepard when I was a kid. We've got a long way to go but we've come so far? I mean, we didn't just play smear the queer? I had to hide a drunk buddy from the cops because he trashed a gas station with the excuse that "the cashier came onto him." Legit Nazis. There were the skinheads who weren't that racist and then there were the skinheads that oh my holy fuck most definitely were. Back when men were men and swastikas were in ballpoint on denim jackets.

That's why they're mad. This is what we took from them.
