AlejandroDon, we are not all the same people. Many of us confrom to what heterosexual people consider to be normal , and many of us do not. I do not see why the presence of the S&M; community should get in the way of that since we are a diverse community, just like with straight people. It is not the fault of those poeple that we are targetted as victims of homophobia, and therefore we shouldn't be scapegoating them.What I do agree with is that instead of worrying about attracting more LGBT people by means of flashing shirtless guys around, we should be working on political change. The pride parades have slowly but surely changed from being a radical and political movement to one that shows how sexy we are with HRC collecting money, and very little more. If only we could go back to the days when we actually accomplished something like defending Stonewall Inn http://ezxmsgev.com [url=http://umqkeb.com]umqkeb[/url] [link=http://bksjtl.com]bksjtl[/link]
