Judging by his “Confession of a homophobe” commentary (Feb. 25), it seems Otis Page has thought about our sexuality tirelessly of late. Despite his fixation on what we may or may not do as same-sex partners (and he does express rather rich and specific imaginings in his article), we never concern ourselves with his sexual practices.
Evidently, Page is convinced that we and other gay U.S. citizens want him to express his sexuality differently. Nothing could be further from the truth. We simply wish to participate fully and equally in the social institutions favored by the United States Government. We desire equal treatment under the law. We leave Otis to his fantasy world: He seems so devoted to it.
