Right on, brother
. You know, the nicest compliment
I've ever gotten in high school
was "Alex is a fascist homo
!" scrawled in marker
in a men's room stall
. This was the culmination
of a written debate conducted on the wall of said stall over a couple of days (we didn't have Usenet
back then... Ale^H
is an oooold geezer
). My initial reaction was predictably anger... but then I found myself bragging
about it to all my fellow activist
"Guess what I found out today, Mike? I'm a fascist homo!"
"Really? I always had you figured for a socialist bisexual
After all, if you've pissed people off enough that they write homophobic slurs
about you on bathroom wall
s, you must be doing something right!
This reminds me of something a feminist thinker
whose name I've unfortunately forgotten said to aspiring women
activists: "If they don't call you a lesbian
, you aren't getting enough accomplished."
