Civil Rights are Civil Rights

The first same-sex couple to marry legally in California, Lesbian activists Phyllis Lyon and Del Martin, have been together for 55 years.

I sincerely believe that equal rights for all really means just that. Not “Equal Rights for Those Who Believe and Act in Ways That I am Comfortable With”.

What is homophobia about, anyway? It is about sex, pure and simple. How are a gay couple any different from any other couple? The slots and tabs. That is it.

I never really want to think about most of my neighbors having sex. I mean, come on. What else would I be able to base my hatred on the homos next door other than their bedtime proclivities? There are plenty of straight kinks that I would rather not assign to the neighbor I nod to every time I see them. Really. Who wants to know that the sweet overweight couple two doors down are into…well, you get the picture. So why would a gay couple next door be any different than a straight couple?

I believe that ‘conservatives’ have two main deficiencies. Projection and controlling their creative visualizations. With projection, they always want to project their beliefs on everyone else. Even more so if deep down they like what they are supposed to hate. Sort of a smokescreen effect, if you will. Yell loud enough about how you hate X and people will probably think you are the last candidate for engaging in X.

With creative visualization, well, we’re back to the neighbors. If all I saw was sex when I encountered other people, I would probably be driven half mad by the cavalcade of imagery. Especially if I had spent much of my life trying to convince myself that I was morally superior to everyone else all the while wondering deep down what it would be like to be forcibly taken by a large, sweaty black man. (I’m looking at you, Missy Graham)

I have pretty good control of my visualization. If they’re attractive to me, I might go there mentally. If not, ewww. No. So I really don’t care how the scene works for you. Even if it involves goats. If fact, I’m probably more inclined that you keep it to yourself, whatever your ‘orientation’. (Unless you are whispering it in my ear, that is. Full disclosure: I <em>heart</em> naughty.)

So back to the California. Good on them. Living up to our reputation of a nation of freedom is hard work, but we have to keep trying to ensure that all people, from white to black, rich to poor, totally straight to flamingly gay are treated Equally. As in the same. All the time.

Absurdity Ad Infinitum

God hates fags! Love Gods Way!

Donnie Davies is a sad individual.

However, his list of gay bands, or Bands to Watch Out For, is pure Comedy Gold.

A few choice morsels:

  • Tech N9ne
  • Ghostface Killah
  • Eagles of Death Metal
  • Metallica
  • Jay-Z
  • WTF??

    And then there are the bizarre:

  • Twisted Sister (jj) what do you mean, j j ?!?
  • Marilyn Manson (dark gay) Wait, I thought God hated fags. How is a dark fag any worse?
  • George Michael (texan) Who knew being Texan made you extra gay?
  • Ted Nugent (loincloth) …?
  • The Cure (makeup) Well, duh, makeup?
  • Britney Spears (kissed Madonna) Thanks for clearing that one up, Donnie!
  • NoFx (gay punk) just in case you didn’t know what kind of music NoFX is…
  • And then, well:

  • Elton John(really gay) What tipped you off? The trailer full of shoes?and finally:
  • Morrissey(?questionable?) Metallica is gay, but Morrisey’s questionable? Dude…
  • And just who is this arbiter of all that is Good and Manly?

    I’ve made a friend.

    Yesterday, in a fit of, well, a fit, I penned these words:

    I seriously want to kick this guys ass. That is not hyperbole. I want to sneak up on him and jump him in, gang style. And I’m not even a Hillary supporter.

    I know, I know, how juvenile could I be? But look what I found lying in my comments section this morning:

    #2

    Try it, I never met a candy ass liberal who’s ass I couldn’t kick.

    Bring it on- just tell them where to pick up your body

    Roger Stone

    Comment by Roger Stone — January 24, 2008 @ 9:00 pm | Edit This

    The comment info/whois was inconclusive, but the tone seems to fit this assclown’s modus operandi. So I thought I’d find out a little more about my new BFF Roger Stone.

    Roger Stone started as a political operative for Richard Nixon at age 19. He is widely regarded as the youngest of the Watergate ‘tricksters’. (Way to hit the ground running, dogg!)

    From the Weekly Standard article entitled Roger Stone, Political Animal:

    He has dabbled in at least eight presidential campaigns, everything from working for Nixon’s Committee To Reelect the President (CREEP) in 1972, to helping stage the infamous 2000 Brooks Brothers Riot in Miami, where angry Republicans in loud madras shorts and pinstriped suits helped shut down the Miami recount. (Stone was directing traffic by walkie-talkie from a nearby van.)

    The hits just keep coming! Seems he’s always been quite the joker when it come to acronyms.

    He was also caught up in a scandal involving a swingers site, his wife, and a request for athletic men. As far as I’m concerned, that is his business, but I did glean the lead off picture of this post from that tawdry affair.

    Then there’s the tat of Nixon:

    I know, I know. Once you see something, it can’t be unseen. I’m sorry.

    Putting aside the obvious homo erotic implications of putting a man’s face between your shoulder blades…Nixon? I’ll bet he’s a hit at Leather Night Wednesdays.

    Politics is an ugly game. Roger Stone is the face of modern American politics.

    As we close in on New Years, I don’t have much. This Christmas was kinda weird. In honor of that, I give you another EatLiver nugget.

    It’s fun to be gay. Heh, indeed.

    Wow.

    There is something wrong with that link.

    I have to say it. To have a problem with homosexuality, you must not have some kind of filter regarding other people’s business. You’re creative visualization bone has no internal critic.

    Let’s think about this. I don’t really try to think about any of my neighbors having sex. Why should it matter what flavor of love they prefer? My conservative neighbors are probably more perverse than my lesbian neighbors. Or not. Who cares?

    “Thou dost protest too much, methinks”(to paraphrase of a line from Hamlet)

    Get a life!
