Whether or not one sleeps with or has a sexual relationship with a member of the same sex is irrelevant. What IS relevant is that to declare oneself to be either a faggot or a lesbian, means, automatically, that that person is identifying with the oppressed. And only by identifying with the oppressed will those "straight" people ever be able to help achieve the liberation of gays. During the next issues of Search For Tomorrow the question of what it means to be "straight", "gay", "bi sexual", "asexual", etc. will be explored. It ss hoped that the reader would begin to examine or re-examine his old beliefs, opinions, and, undoubtedly, biased and oppressive attitudes.
