"The lesbian, gay, and transgender (LGBT) movement has been fighting for 50-plus years to challenge the oppression of queer people and make the world a better, less hostile, and safer place for everyone. Fifty years is not a particularly long time and given the entrenched cultural homophobia in the United States, the LGBT movement has done a pretty good job so far?except when it comes to dealing with sexuality. Sure, consensual sodomy performed in private is no longer a crime, lesbians no longer face the threat of having their children taken away from them because they pose a sexual danger to them, and gay men are not automatically presumed to be sexually interested in boys anymore (except by the Boy Scouts of America, which categorically forbids them to be scout leaders). But when it comes to thinking sensibly and politically about sex, most of the major LGBT rights groups would rather avoid the issue. Even worse, when they do address it, they invariably get it wrong."
