No, just an expression of “In your Face” gloating and propaganda pushing.
Concur. Kirk and Madsen in After the Ball (originally published in magazine-series form as "Overhauling Straight America") emphasized working as hard as possible, in all gay propaganda, to hebetate straights' moral and esthetic revulsion by constantly working on them, exposing them as often as possible to "positive" images of gays -- gays as victims, gays as ordinary people, gays as your brother or sister or other family member, gays as benefactors and public exemplars, in a process very like metal fatigue, with the same end, viz. breaking it permanently and destructively.
It's like worrying a metal strap or bracket until it breaks. Never stop, never ease off, until it breaks.
