Homocon Ethan Sabo Rants Against Gay Left
You gotta watch this clip first.
When I first ran onto Ethan’s website, I thought I had found the first Homocon I could really understand and relate to. Then, after a few weeks later, I started to see how he was losing his mind when attacked by the Gay Left.
I see where he comes from. He’s not totally nuts. Not totally. He can be eloquent, but he’s starting to lose his shit quite often, now. He’s really bitter (something he complains about us the Gay Left).
As a blogger, I do understand how it feels when people say hateful things about you. I do get my share of hate mail now & then. However, I see it as the “price of admission” for being so outspoken. He seems like he can’t quite handle it. Can’t blame him, thou. Not everyone is cut for this. And he’s clearly not cut for this job.
I do know many Gay Republicans, but the ones I know, are Fiscal Conservatives. They can’t quite see themselves defending and voting for the Presidential Candidates for the GOP we’ve had so far. Many see the Marriage Equality issue as a State matter, not a Federal one. In my opinion they don’t really know the implications of not having our Rights being recognised throughout the Union, and I’m talking just about the Economic ones (something that Republicans most of all should understand and care about).
I do admit that we in the Left, in general, can be really political incorrect when expressing ourselves (I’m guilty of doing that every single week). But if Republicans are good at something (besides of being fiscally irresponsible when governing) is ignoring facts. Every single one of the Presidential Candidates for the GOP are beyond homophobic. And they’re really outspoken about it. So, Why can’t we be outspoken, too? I’m sure they don’t appreciate it when we refer to them as bigots, but are we suppose to give them a free pass whenever they feel like calling us out as sinners/ill/amoral/pedophiles? Fuck no!
I see Homocons as nice people that are willing to tolerate intolerance just so they can blend in in their Conservative circles. I hope they realise the importance of expressing ourselves in more visible ways, like our Gay Pride Parades (which are, by the way, becoming more of a Family Event in North America each year). If they only were aware of how far we’ve come because of demonstrations since Stonewall, Homocons like Ethan wouldn’t have such a concept of them (I should point out, Gay Leaders like Larry Kramer do, in fact, have their issues with the way Parades were being taken away from their original purpose).
And where on Earth has Ethan been at? “Penises all over the place”? Honey, I want the name and address of that place right now. Just FYI, just like the “Joints” for straights, there are all kinds of night clubs for gays, from strip clubs to pubs. So you just gotta find what suits your ass (sometimes, literally). If you found something, it’s probable you were looking.
And at the end of the clip, he is so out of his mind that it seems like he’s justifying Gay Bullying, somehow insinuating that it’s our fault for being so queer/flaming/flamboyant. Well, take a good look at yourself before you rant against other queens, bitch.
And how open minded Ethan really is? He falls into the same game his attackers play. Hating back makes him more like his haters, doesn’t it?
“Moron Of The Week” Inductee Ann Coulter: Liberals Would Abort Gay Babies If Gay Gene Is Found
That’s her argument of why we (Gay Liberals) should be Republicans.
This was during her appearance onThe A List: Dallas, alongside with gay Republican cast member Taylor Garrett (who’s claimed he’s being the target of bullying by gays for his political views).
DOMA Repeal Gets Its Firs Republican Cosponsor
The Advocate reports:
A bill to repeal the federal Defense of Marriage Act now has bipartisan support after Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen of Florida announced Friday that she would cosponsor the legislation, becoming the first Republican to do so.“I voted against the constitutional amendment defining marriage [in 2006] so I’m pleased to cosponsor the repeal of DOMA and work with my colleagues on marriage equality,” said Ros-Lehtinen, who represents Florida’s 18th district, which includes South Beach, most sections of Miami, and the Florida Keys. Though the south Florida representative has a long history of voting in favor of LGBT rights, her decision to join 124 House Democrats in cosponsoring the Respect for Marriage Act nevertheless is a bold move, given the Republican House leadership’s defense of DOMA in multiple legal challenges after the Obama administration announced in February it would no longer defend the law. Rep. Jerrold Nadler of New York, original sponsor of the House DOMA repeal bill, called Ros-Lehtinen, chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee, “a tremendous ally in the world’s struggles for freedom and against oppression and discrimination.” “She is widely recognized as a champion of human rights and human dignity,” Nadler said. “And her support reminds us that the march to repeal the discriminatory DOMA is not a partisan issue. … [T]he drive to end DOMA is — and must be — a collective, nonpartisan effort that unites Americans behind a simple push for equality.”
Ros-Lehtinen’s announcement comes just days after the historic end to “don’t ask, don’t tell” — which she also voted to repeal.
Montana Considers LGBT Antidiscrimination Bill
The Advocate reports:
Montana’s House Judiciary Committee is considering whether to include LGBT people in the state’s antidiscrimination law, KFBB.com reports.
“These are our sons, daughters and neighbors and constitutes and they are entitled to live a free life from discrimination,” said Democratic state representative Edie McClafferty, who has introduced legislation that would add sexual orientation and gender identity to the Montana Human Rights Act.
But McClafferty’s bill was also met with opposition from some antigay groups during a Friday hearing in Helena: “This bill actually discriminates against me and those who believe as I do that homosexuality and transgender and all of these things is an abomination to God,” said Harold Himes, a pastor and a member of Montana Eagle Forum.

Chris Barron: Marriage Has Been The Province Of The States For 225 Years
Bush’s Daughter For New York Marriage
The younger Barbara Bush has joined her mother in endorsing same-sex marriage. The New York Timescomments on the kids of prominent Republicans:
Ms. Bush is the latest child of a prominent Republican leader to embrace same-sex marriage, long considered anathema to the conservative movement. Gay rights advocates have been quick to seize on the generational split as evidence that the acceptance of same-sex marriage is blind to party affiliation and family values. Meghan McCain, the daughter of John McCain, the 2008 Republican presidential nominee, has become an outspoken supporter of same-sex marriage, despite her father’s opposition to it. And Mary Cheney, the lesbian daughter of Vice President Dick Cheney, has forcefully backed it as well — and is widely credited with helping to persuade her father to do the same. In the case of Mr. McCain, Mr. Cheney and Mr. Bush, it is not just their children who have supported it. So, to varying degrees, have their wives. Laura Bush, in a television interview in May, said, “When couples are committed to each other and love each other” they should have “the same sort of rights that everyone has.”
Weird. But appreciated.
Dan Savage comments:
Amazing! Wonderful! Awesome! And in other news…
Actual Republican elected officials move to ban gay marriage in Washington D.C.
Actual Republican elected officials move to ban gay marriage in Iowa.
Actual Republican elected officials move to ban gay marriage in New Mexico.
Actual Republican elected officials move to ban gay marriage in Wyoming.
Actual Republican elected officials move to ban gay marriage in New Hampshire.
Actual Republican elected officials in Florida plot to enforce ban on adoptions by gay couples despite the law having been declared unconstitutional by the courts.
Actual Republican elected officials will block gay marriage in New York State despite polls showing solid majority of New Yorkers favor marriage equality.
Actual Republican elected officials seek to block repeal of DADT.
Actual Republican elected officials pulling out of CPAC to presence of gays.
Those useful, pole-smoking idiots at GOProud will point to Barbara Bush’s position on marriage equality as proof that today’s GOP is whole lot less anti-gay than yesterday’s GOP. Don’t fall for it. What Cindy McCain, Megan McCain, and the Bush twins think of gay marriage—what all the relatives of GOP elected officials think of gay marriage—is pretty close to irrelevant. If you want to know where the GOP is at on gay rights, pay attention to what actual Republican elected officials are doing.
Can we stop falling for this shit, please?
I disagree with Chris Barron. But I’ve never liked Cenk Uygur. Not even back when he used to made videos on Youtube. I know Cenk is on our side. But really? Does he have to be such a pain in the ass every time he’s on a debate? As much as I disagree with Chris Barron on the approach he’s taking on Gay Rights, he’s far more eloquent and tolerant than many liberals (including Cenk). I just can’t stand when people choose to act arrogantly on a debate, no matter on which side of the isle they are (I see now why would Ann Coulter called Cenk a retarded). But then again, I get the idea of being a conservative & gay, but a Gay-Republican?
