Just to be 100% clear: there is NO RECRUITMENT!! No, Bible-Freaks, there isn't. I know, I know, you like to believe you know 'all the science you need' in your Big Book of Happy Delusions and Hypocrisy, but you really have no fucking clue.
Gays don't recruit. We've never needed to -- we've been in every society since time immemorial. What we DO is show that by being true to who you are, you don't burst into flames. You don't need to be or feel shame or hurt or hollow because of being who you are . It's critical to remember that those that get so hyper-focused on what consenting adults do in the privacy of their bedrooms, and the small loving acts that make it to the street are WAY too focused on others' lives to be remotely healthy. And never, ever, ever let a guy in a dress tell you that you're Evil even as he's getting the altar boys and girls to open up, say 'AAAAAAHH!!' and start swallowing.
We empower others, as most of us were empowered before. Got news for those that still want to pretend it's a 'choice': nearly every one of us that grew up in a non-supportive home felt isolated, terrified, and guilty for many a year before we finally saw someone that was standing up for themselves (not violently, but firmly nonetheless) and realizing that we didn't need to feel like shit all the time.
If that's what you call 'recruitment' then you're even more twisted and sick a fucker than I first gave you credit for being. Maybe you should start looking at why those vintage leathermen pics on your hard drive are what you use to charge yourself up to go hold-your-nose-and-super-quick-do-your-wife. And why pics of her nude are heartwarming, but do absolutely nothing to juice up your libido.
