I’ve always wondered how this sort of strategy meshes with being unpopular - holding unpopular positions such as, say, favoring democracy.  In some countries, that was enough to get you disappeared.  In America, there are still places it’s not safe to be gay.  I just read an article in the local rag claiming half the local homeless population got that way by being some flavor of LGBT and being kicked out of their home by their own family.  Sure, I’d love to live in a society where you could “let your freak flag fly” freely, but I don’t think most of America is ready for that.
