Thanks for writing this informative piece. Regarding the MAGA /homophobic guy, I’m perpetually astonished that most people haven’t understood the very simple fact that the most vitrioli anti-whatevers are always without exception those who are struggling against their inner desire to be precisely what it is they are claiming to hate. Hence the endless stream of Republican politicians who get caught fondling other men in airport lavatories, hotel rooms, etc.

Anyone who enjoys my articles here on Medium may be interested in my books Why Democracy Failed and The Praying Ape, both available from Amazon.
