Gay baseball: II

So my gay baseball player column of a few days caught some fire today when it was linked from Andrew Sullivan and Matt Drudge. My favorite comment, which was posted below the article:

You know I don’t really care if your gay or straight, but I am really getting tired of people trying to make me accept something that I feel is wrong.

I won’t push my values on you, you don’t push your values on me.

This, to me, sums up the problem of those who oppose gay rights: You can literally replace “gay” with “black,” transport yourself back to the 1960s and fit right in. “I won’t push my values on you, you don’t push your values on me” is straight out of ANTI-SEGREGATION: 101. I mean, right out. Like it or not, sometimes values must be pushed—for the good of humanity.
