For much of American history, indeed, for much of world history, necrophilia has been a taboo subject. Often, it has been considered a crime in itself. Yet today, millions of necrophilian Americans are not only open about their sexuality, they are campaigning for new laws which they say would grant them the same rights accorded to other differently-oriented people, including protection against discrimination at the scenes of fatal accidents and the right to practice their alternative lifestyle in the military at the front lines of active combat.

* I have to admit I am not a homophobe (I don't fear gays, and even grrrls don't make me cry, unless they get up on their hind legs and bark along with those big dogs on the porch - then they scare the pants off me ;-), nor do I hate them (couldn't find an antonym for -philia, Greek for "like" or "love". "Phobia" means "fear", which isn't applicable.) I simply find some of their practices - and those who practice them - completely disgusting and without any socially redeemable value. I hope my gay friends forgive me, but they already knew I was weird.
