X-Post: Donald Douglas Attacks People Mourning the Death of Marriage Equality Activist Christina Santiago...

...and then attacks them again, for noticing his awful behavior...

American Power: Stay Classy Progressives: Gay Rights Extremists Lash Out After NOH8 Caught Wellstoning the Death of Christina Santiago

For most of us, the articles and posts commemorating Christina are about mourning the death of a pretty, young, motivated activist and human being. The only one politicizing Christina's death or trying to exploit it for political gain is Donald Douglas. To the best of my knowledge, the only person who is attacking NOH8 and those who mourn Christina, as person or as an activist, for what they've written about her since her death is Donald Douglas. This isn't about Republicans, conservatives, Christians, or even about homophobes and bigots. This is about Donald Douglas, and about his need to destroy what he cannot accept or understand, no matter the cost to his own humanity. That Dr. Douglas is trying to turn it around and paint those who call him out for his bigoted insensitivity toward Christina Santiago and her friends and family as the aggressors is really disgusting... For those familiar with Donald Douglas, however, it isn't that surprising.
