Society Has Failed Goatman

Goatman was unmasked by Utah authorities and the story has taken the now familiar path of Self and Societal denial common to the plight of marginalized minorities.

On “apprehension” Goatman claimed he was simply testing out hunting gear. We know this is a lie, a lie born of the self-loathing that prejudice and oppression by hetero-normative society creates within outcast sexual minorities.

Where are the calls for understanding? Where are the summits and the demands that community outreach programs be funded? Why must Goatmen live in the wild and not social housing? Why have our educators not set up Goatcentric schools?

Society has failed Goatman, and we will all pay the price until the institutional prejudice that exists across the full spectrum of society is eradicated.
