Larry Kramer: AIDS is a plague allowed to happen

I won’t say that I agree with all of this piece, but it did make me pause to reflect. And then I read the comments on the article and the vitriol that was spewed behind the anonymity of the internet.

Most striking is the following quote from his article:

— They also tell us we can’t get legally married.

— They also tell us that we cannot legally adopt children.

— They also tell us religions will not recognize us.

— They also tell us we can’t serve our country yet.

— They also tell us our real history cannot be taught in schools.

— They also tell us that gay students cannot organize in schools.

— They also tell us that people who murder us are not committing hate crimes.

— They also tell us we cannot insure our partners.

— They also tell us our partners are not legal.

— They also tell us we cannot have equal opportunities.

— They also tell us we can’t kiss each other or hold each other’s hands in public.

— They also tell us that our Supreme Court doesn’t want to know about any of this, doesn’t want to make us free and equal, doesn’t want to honor the Bill of Rights.

If you want to know why AIDS is a plague, I have just told you why.

Welcome to Second-class America.
