Then and Now

Then

“Homosexuality is unnatural. Men and women were meant to come together to have children. Homosexuals are promiscuous and spread disease — do you think AIDS was an accident? The homosexual lifestyle is worldly and hedonistic, in pursuit of shallow pleasure, but in the end gays end up unhappy and unfulfilled. Homosexual impulse is always prompted by an inner sense of emptiness. Homosexuals cannot be allowed in our classrooms. They will convert our children to their homosexual lifestyles. As a mother, I know that homosexuals cannot biologically reproduce children; therefore, they must recruit our children. I do not wish harm on homosexuals — and I know some homosexuals personally — but I cannot support their deviant lifestyles. Homosexuals are out to destroy families and the institution of marriage. If homosexuals are allowed to marry, what comes next? People marrying their dogs? Children need a mother and a father to grow up. Why would you jeopardize the well being of children by allowing gays to adopt?”

Now

“Yes, you’re gay. Good for you. Nobody cares. Do you have to keep bringing it up? It’s so boring. People are people — I don’t see gay, straight, whatever. Why do you have to keep pushing your sexuality in our faces? Straight people don’t go around announcing their sexuality all the time. They don’t need a big parade. They don’t fly their flags everywhere, and they don’t complain to City Hall when it refuses to devote their entire month to their so-called celebrations. Why do you make such a fuss? Being gay is not a personality. Do you really have to dress like that? Do you have to act like that? I know you are desperate to draw attention to yourself, but it is embarrassing to us respectable gays.”

“Don’t you understand that we can’t let those people into our country because they don’t respect gay rights? They want you gays dead, and would just as quickly throw you off a building as say hello to you. They are not enlightened the way we are.”

  1. It’s just that we don’t go back to the closet or stay quiet. When LGBTQ people speak up and the world at large realizes that all the ‘think of the children’ was bullshit and the arguments about reproduction and AIDS are moot, the nice people (usually religulous or repuglyclowns) just want us to go away or stay quiet. They want us to away with our sexy ways and our flags and our demonstrations of pride. They want us to accept their flawed logic in the name of ‘normalcy’.
    There’s a movie called Flawless, where Philip Seymour Hoffmann plays a drag queen and tells the conservative gays who get on their Banana Republic clad knees to suck dick to go to hell with their ‘normal’. And I share that sentiment.

  2. I’m still waiting for the proof that my same-sex marriage has destroyed one single hetero union.
    And don’t get me started with The Gays causing hurricanes and such.

    1. I don’t have concrete evidence in your particular marriage, but I think that it is plausible that some struggling young gayling observed you and Carlos happy together, and then realized that he did not have entrap himself in some loveless mixed-sex matrimony in order to be happy. So he gave up, stopped dating women, and thus aborted a straight marriage before it even had a chance to happen. You should feel ashamed of yourself! You might have averted a straight marriage! (Nobody ever said it had to be a happy straight marriage.)

    1. What is interesting to me is that the shit is kind of different, especially the shit that cites the lack of tolerance for gays by foreigners as justification to hate them.

  3. A person can get whiplash or the bends from listening to haters’ logic! When I was a child (memories light the corners of my mind) I remember my parent’s being angry at the newspapers for always printing pictures of Black men when they committed crimes. Now haters get all snide when a picture isn’t on a story, insisting it must be a Black person who committed a crime. Personally, I go by the name because my peeps can be quite creative in that respect 🙂
    Bob’s homo marriage has put a bit of a dent in my hetero one! I get so distracted by his Tales of Carlos stories that I neglect my own husband! The fabulousness of it all is distracting!
    I don’t mind the weather stuff since I live in California, but the fires and earthquakes have got to stop, y’all!

    1. If homosexuality caused natural disasters shouldn’t we expect all of SoCal to be a smoldering hole now? Despite the recent 7.1 quake, we should expect that the Big One should have happened already. My guess is that God loves tech companies, and thus spares Silicon Valley.

  4. I find it ironic when right wing people suddenly become worried about us in regards to immigrants.
    I certainly remember a time when I would get really upset with the gay activists, I wanted them to stop drawing attention to us, now I see them as war heroes, thank god for them and their never accepting no for an answer.

    1. Yes, the immigrant argument is one of my favorites. I use it to oppress brown people as frequently as possible.

      There are some aspects of gay activism that I am grateful for and some that continues to make me feel uncomfortable. But what else do you expect from a homocon? There are still MANY ways in which I am uncomfortable with gay people being used as political leverage.
