The broader the possibilities for 100 percent intimacy, the wider the shadow of fear can become. Psychosexually, the fear monster of our time is like some two-headed dragon: The homophobia of heterosexuals and the heterophobia of homosexuals. The exclusivity of homosexual or heterosexual behavior splits us into two camps, separately helpless to slay this dragon-indeed, feeding him like some monstrous pet. We will slay the dragon only when we join together, yielding to what unites us (the capacity for intimacy) rather than to what separates us (fear).
