Don Kilhefner: Gay Liberation, with its revolutionary world view and emphasis on the restructuring of society to benefit all (today called Democratic Socialism), is an embarrassment to the gay and lesbian “me generation” shaped by the social Darwinism and self-absorption of the Reagan era and beyond.
Don Kilhefner: The 21st century paradigm shift from an old gay assimilation/sexual orientation model to a new gay essentialism/societal contribution model is similar in meaning to the 20th century paradigm shift from Newtonian to Einsteinian physics
