To the Editor: BG man responds to doctor's letter on gays

I was pleased to read Dr. David Miller's letter to the editor expressing his disappointment at council's passing the ordinance that "would coerce businesses and schools to employ homosexuals, lesbians, transvestites, cross dressers, and those with gender and gender identify issues!"
It's heartening to have a medical doctor holding these views as he has the opportunity to offer his advice to patients with gender and psychological questions.
Luckily, Dr. Miller doesn't follow the thinking of his wimpy colleagues in the American Psychiatric Society who stopped referring to homosexuality as a disorder over 20 years ago!
I've had a very personal encounter with this issue recently. I made the mistake of shaking the hand of "one of those people" and ever since then I've experienced signs of gayicity. I have an almost uncontrollable urge now to listen to the music of Barry Manilow and Yanni. My reading taste is leaning towards Oprah books. I even ordered quiche the other night rather than my usual steak. I only wish I had been vaccinated against this virulent affliction!
Dr. Miller, thank you for your learned, enlightened, and compassionate thinking on this unpleasant topic! (I guess you find the prejudiced, ignorant, and homophobic even where you'd least expect to find it - in the medical field.)
