Collective movements for social justice do not gain traction through niceness. American women did not gain the right to vote by skipping down Pennsylvania Avenue while whistling cute songs about suffrage: they picketed, they marched, they yelled, they were arrested.

so men like him aren’t dicks for not liking genuinely camp people, they are dicks because they probably wouldn’t talk to or fuck someone who seemed too ‘gay.’
