Roey Thorpe, executive director of Basic Rights Oregon, shared a personal story that she believes illustrates the prejudice that a gay person cannot love as truly or as deeply as a heterosexual.

The Portland, Oregon, woman said an employee who was grieving over the death of her husband asked Thorpe, "Do your people feel sad when your person dies?"

"It tells it all," Thorpe said. "I said, 'you saw me as a little less human and for me to realize it breaks my heart.' "

That's key to the fundamentalist line: queers don't love. Queers don't form relationships. Queers are nothing but insatiable sex demons addicted to our perversion.

Nothing. But. That.

And it's a drumbeat, repeated over and over again.

"Your people"?

Everybody set your clocks back forty years. GEEEzus.

Yes, humans feel sad and grieve when they lose someone they have grown attached to, too.
