Actually, this is not reserved for this friend. I 'll let him introduce himself in whatever manner he chooses to what ever extent he feels most comfortable. But this was provoked by a my posting of this Laurie Higgins article, which he referred to as "pretentious drivel". As I am quite the fan of Higgins' work, especially her insightful perspective on the issue of homosexuality and the Agenda That Doesn't Exist, I do not believe I would be so partial to someone for whom the label "pretentious" would be appropriate. I am certain I've never read anything by her that in any way equates to "drivel". But then, I am not a proponent, supporter or enabler (and certainly no activist) of the Agenda That Doesn't Exist.
But FB is not the best forum for true debate on any subject, so I invited him to elaborate on his position here. I have also given him leeway as regards staying on topic so long as it is related to the general issue. But anyway, he's a new dude so give him a break and if anyone feels compelled to respond to remarks of his, wield the bludgeon gently. I've no reason to believe he is of the typically thin skinned variety of opponent. Nonetheless, as always, I will let him draw first blood if that is his intent. Leave reciprocal fire to me.
As to the link, I am not going to post any commentary at this point, other than to say if you have not seen it via my FB posting, give it a read here.
