AIDS, the Politically Correct and Social Theory
My outrage does not arise from the moralistic sensibilities of Jesse Helms, but from the disenfranchisement I feel and been [sic] subjected to as a woman, an Asian American and a lesbian. I am no longer willing to be the ‘silent majority’ in any of these categories nor am I willing to be silent when I see other peoples being subjected to the same racism and sexism I have experienced … the [San Francisco AIDS Foundation] uses the American flag and two stereotypical White All-American looking males … The Asian gay man, Black gay man, Hispanic gay man,substance user of any color and heterosexual female of any color are also at risk…. Where are the Black men wrapped in an American flag? Where are the Hispanic men wrapped in an American flag? Where are the Asian men wrapped in the American flag? Where is the heterosexual couple wrapped in the American flag? This new safe-sex campaign is dangerous to gay men of color, substance users of any color, and to heterosexual couples of any color.
