The list author says: "I lived in Guam where many straights would say, "It wouldn't make sense to be homophobic on this island because most everybody has someone in their family who is gay." Look at idiots like Alan Keyes who criticize Mary Cheney and her father Dick, but then has a lesbian daughter himself! Many homophobes say, "Homosexuality is caused by bad parenting." Well, if you're straight with a gay sibling, then how do you respond to that allegation? How do you feel about what it says about your parents? Not that this applies to me, but some of the most pro-gay straight people often have gay relatives who break down very clearly why it's necessary to support gay rights passionately."
