Recently in my Gazette blog, I asked for comment from the children of same-sex parents. There hasn’t been much response, so I doubt I will be exploring the subject much further.

But in the course of taking a look at the subject, I became aware of another term that seems to be gaining traction in the United States, if not in Canada: “LGBT extremism.”

As you may know, there is a slugfest going on in the U.S. between some LGBT activists and some anti-LGBT activists. Not surprisingly, it can be pretty ugly at times.

But as a journalist, I am curious about the extent of so-called “LGBT extremism.” I want to know if our side — because I am a member of the LGBT community, too — is doing anything wrong in its quest for equal civil rights in that country, and other countries, too. Are some LGBT activists crossing the line?
