her take in the OP. This is very common on DU recently as I have pointed out to you. People who were furious at LGBT activists who now claim they can't understand how anyone could be upset with activists of any kind.
When I see that sort of fluid and situational point of view I know I am looking not at issue advocacy but at partisan politics exploiting issues of equality to make which ever point suits the partisan that day. That is a misuse of those issues.

This is very common on DU currently. The OP has often accused LGBT activists of being very much in the wrong, as I quoted. She now chides those who do not instantly give all license to activists, which she sure as shit never did.

Look when I see the person who refused to sell me ice cream handing out free cones to all the straight kids, I'm going to mention it.
