To the Editors:
The problem with how media covers news is that we may confuse the extreme for the norm. Back in the sixties I lived in a white suburb of Detroit and eventually found that Blacks weren’t anything like they had been described to me. I see the same thing happening with the New Age Sexuality.
It’s as simple and unavoidable as evolution. As we integrate this faction into society we’ll find we’re not so much different as we are the same in different ways, just as languages differ only in the sounds they use. Very often life must patiently wait to catch up with itself. We’ll look back at the gay parade ban as an oxymoron which will be remembered mostly for all the punchlines it will spawn on late-night TV.
