Again on Homophobia

I don't see it as a debate over "political correctness."  The struggle
lesbian/gay liberation must be linked to the struggles of the working
class against capitalism.  A part of linking these struggles is the
conscious struggle against all forms of homophobia in the working class
against all anti-working-class sentiment in the lesbian/gay

Why do you see there as being a necessary linkage?

Historically capitalist societies have taken a more favourable
attitude towards homosexuality than socialist ones, and on
the other hand, prominent upper class homosexuals have an
overiding class interest to oppress the working class.
