Key phrase: “We must deal with the world as it is and not as we wish it to be.” If you can move past the nasty implication that some people wish for a world with no gay people, this is pretty interesting. I think this idea lies at the heart of a lot of contentious social issues. We cannot force people to fit into neat cookie-cutter shapes that appeal to us personally. We must work within reality. Anything else leads to suffering for large swaths of people.
