History professor questions whether "gay Republican" is an oxymoron

Jim Downs, a history professor at Connecticut college, has created controversy by claiming that Peter Thiel is not “gay”, and then espouses his antipathy to “gay” Republicans (Log Cabin) and probably libertarians in a controversial Advocate article on Facebook this morning.

I have some antipathy to “identity politics” and behaving out of group “solidarity”.  I don’t get my sense of identity by belonging to a group, which makes both the Left and Right potentially dangerous to me.
