and appears to have just grouped together (among others) bisexual people, androgynous people, devil worshippers and people who like cats . . . characterizing all as "folk defined by 'odd' sexual practices"

1.) Please read column (but be warned . . . . don't have breakable object at hand or impressionable tots who you might not want to hear all the swear words you are bound to say, she seems a bit of a nutter)

It's not me. It's you
As a lesbian, I no longer want to be lumped in with a list of folk defined by 'odd' sexual practices

2.) Write to the author:

o via email at julie.bindel@guardian.co.uk
o or register (it free!) and complain online (as we have here)

The problem is, Ms. Bindel has managed to insult SO many people all in one article (cat fanciers? she doesn't like cat fanciers? is she SURE she's a lesbian?) it confusing as to what to say first!

But you may want to point out to her that it was primarily genderqueer people (of colour!) who rioted at Stonewall et. al. and that the Post-Stonewall LGBT leader who started the custom of having Pride Events that we now all celebrate annually world-wide was an out bisexual woman.

So actually it is more OUR movement and perhaps SHE may wish to leave if we offend her so much?

Thanks for giving the shout out. People who want rights for themselves, but not other people are as bad as those who denyed them rights in the first place.

some Social-worker types see it as almost a like a group version of the old problem of the molested and battered child --- that a lot of THEM grow up to be molesters and batterers

same thing here, the despised minority groups "grows up" to be as or more bigoted and hateful to those they perceive as further down the societal totem pole from them
