This Philly Gay Calendar column paragraph makes me want to kill someone:
"I'll be honest with you. I don't have a neat answer to this dilemma. However, I do know whether gay, straight, or queer, you too will grapple to integrate fuck and love – to balance sex with tender-heartedness, to feel cock emotionally inside love's body, and to bleed vulnerably while mixing sweat with semen. Integration means bringing the dark, wild shadows of pleasure into the ecstatic light of your own heart's passion. And until you do this – until you integrate fuck and love – heed Paul Monette's words from his book Becoming a Man when he writes "love [will] be sexless and sex loveless!"

A recent guest editorial from the New York Post features a response from Maggie Gallagher, the president of the National Organization for Marriage:
"Do I have blood on my hands?
Major gay-rights groups are saying so. Each of us who opposes gay mar riage, they say, is responsible for the terrible and tragic suicides of gay teens that recently hit the news.
San Francisco just filed a brief in the Prop 8 case, saying 7 million Californians who voted to protect marriage as the union of one man and one woman are responsible for high rates of suicide among gay people.
Evan Wolfson, one of the leading architects of the gay marriage movement, calls me out personally: "National Organization for Marriage Chairman Maggie Gallagher is among those who, with reckless disregard, attacks LGBT youth.""
She goes on to cite all kinds of statistics; stats that I'm not sure how they relate to the suicides:
"Gay students are also more than twice as likely to report having had sexual intercourse before age 13 -- that is, to be sexually abused as children. They are three times as likely to report being the victims of dating violence, and nearly four times as likely to report forced sexual contact. A majority of LGBT teens in Massachusetts reported using illegal drugs in the last month. (Perhaps most oddly, gay teens are also three times as likely as non-gay teens to report either becoming pregnant or getting someone else pregnant.)
And that's exactly what the Youth Risk Behavior data also shows: In 2001, gay teens in Massachussetts were almost four times more likely to have attempted suicide (31 percent versus 8 percent). In 2007 -- after four years of legalized gay marriage in that state -- gay teens were still about four times more likely to attempt suicide than non-gay teens (29 percent versus 6 percent)."
Read the whole story to try to get more of a context and make yourself really ripshit.
