Pride Month Postscript

Editor:
It was almost the end of June when I really started to focus on Pride Month. I realized, as the expression goes, that I had no dog in the fight. 

Nevertheless, I could not resist wanting to point out that sexuality is a continuum or a spectrum, and not an individual territory, and that sexual identity follows a long arc between male and female. There are multiple gradations of difference, and everyone — since people know their own minds better than anyone else does — has an overriding prerogative to choose where they belong without being criticized or second-guessed.  

All power to the Rainbow, and individual freedom that doesn’t harm anyone else.
