"But what has never been remote or clinical to me was why heterosexual people hate queers. It's because we challenge what it means to be a man and to be a woman in this society. In the most visceral, stripped-down sense, being a man in a hetero-normative culture means doing the f-cking; being a woman means doing the getting f-cked. Every time we go to bed with a sex partner, we challenge that irreducible gender assumption, and there are people who hate us for that."
--Paul Schindler, editor of Gay City News
