"be gay; do crime" isn't a pride flag or a cute meme.
"Many blame queers for the decline of this society -- we take pride in this. Some believe that we intend to shred-to-bits this civilization and its moral fabric -- they couldn't be more accurate. We're often seen as depraved, decadent and revolting -- but oh, they ain't seen nothing yet."
@polymerwitch yes! This is my favorite quote. Back when i was on bird site I had a whole thread about this.
@juliana the political cartoon is an edit of some classic newspaper cartoon O believe, but the quote is from the article I love linked which is the introduction to the longer work. It is the essay that spawned the modern usage of the phrase as far as I know.
Either way, I reject the use of the phrase as an empty slogan used to only posture.
