thoughts from a basset hound-loving writer who supposedly destroyed civilization by marrying his partner
Hi Ken,Back some time ago, the FRC wrote a review of Half the house which praised the book for showing what happens to boys when we let "homosexuals" get a hold of them! Completely ignoring my explicit remarks, both in the text of the memoir in the argument with my father, and in the afterword where I decry homophobia. I tried to have them remove it from the internet, but could not. Their intellectual dishonesty, masking raw hatred, has been clear to me for a long time.
Your memoir -- and the comments by Mr. Curly during that horrendous murder of his son -- made it so clear that sexual orientation had nothing to do with the abuse. I remember so clearly that scene with your father. I was actually quite in awe that you could see so clearly during such a disturbing conversation. Thanks for writing. Yet again, I missed your reading because I had the flu. One of these days, we'll see each other again, my friend!
