It's real people...

From Eric Zorn:
Perhaps inadvertently, Keyes' candor reminds us of another truth that can be spoken: When you rail against homosexuals, you're not railing against faceless beings whose sole attribute is that they "use the organs intended for procreation for purposes of pleasure," as Keyes is known to say disapprovingly. You're railing against real people--daughters, sons, friends, colleagues, neighbors--who are really hurt by scornful rhetoric that trivializes their relationships.
