The only explanation I can find for being so vehemently anti-gay while being gay themselves...self-hatred.

This has GOT to be the most punchable face in America:

media.salon.com
Glenn Murphy Jr.

History: Former president of the Young Republican National Federation
Anti-gay behavior: Advocated "straight" family values
Outed: In 2007, Murphy was arrested for performing fellatio on an unwilling man while he slept.
Outcome: Murphy admitted the events, was charged with sexual assault, and was jailed. He is now a registered sex offender.

Say what you want about Barney Frank; but this is farking funny:

When Barney Frank was asked if Dreier was not elected House majority leader because he was too "moderate," Frank replied: "Yes, in the sense that I marched in the moderate pride parade last summer and went to a moderate bar."

Allen denied that he wanted to solicit sex, saying that he entered the park bathroom and then offered oral sex because he believed the man wanted to rob him. He backed this idea up, by saying the man was "a pretty stocky black guy," that there were "a lot of other black guys in the park," and that he thought he was about "to be a statistic." Allen resigned in 2007.

I'd forgotten about this guy, but his excuse is awe inspiring.

When confronted by a black, offer to blow him.

self loathing and the ever popular point the finger at someone else the most over things you are ashamed of or have issues with in yourself.

Normal gay: doesn't care that they're gay, comes out.
Closet gay: gravitates towards repressed sexuality, accuses everyone else of being what they can't admit to themselves they are.

Out of the closet slide show:

Roy Cohn
Bob Bauman
Terry Dolan
Arthur Finklestein
Jim Kolbe
David Dreier
Ken Mehlman
Ed Schrock
Jim West
Mark Foley
Ted Haggard
Robert Allen
Richard Curtis
Larry Craig
Glenn Murphy, Jr.
Troy King
Roy Ashburn
Eddie Long
George Rekers
Philip Hinkle
Michael Berry


List is total fail without J Edgar Hoover, Bebe Rebozo or Jeff Gannon Guckert

Slideshow won't load for me. I'm surprised to see Jim Kolbe mentioned (in the thread). I never considered him anti-gay. Maybe that is just salon talking like salon, and all gay republicans are self-hating in their minds, I don't know, I can't make the link work.

But yeah, generally if they are super anti-gay, they are indeed self-hating their own gay selves, or so it seems. Sad. And wrong.

The number of days since the last prominent homophobe came out currently stands at 52.

It's actually comforting to see many some of them came out voluntarily.

That one's a favourite of mine... just how repressed to do you to be, to go with the "I was just buying meth" line as an alternative to being gay?

Is it funnier if the adblocker makes all 21 slides "Roy Cohn"?
 
2012-06-24 02:17:54 AM
I feel like this trope is played out. It's like you just can assume they're gay now.

I was more interested in the piece below this one, "My gay art-porn debut." Then again, a friend of mine was in that movie, so.

Oh, to be clear, I'm not saying he's anti-gay, but he seems to be closeted. I mean, what grown man enjoys to tickle/wrestle some hot, fit 20 year old dudes?

Except Massa wasn't anti-gay, just closeted.

But I get it - BOTH SIDES ARE BAD SO VOTE REPUBLICAN!

Yeah, this is one of the weirder groups in US politics.

Hell, none of these guys are even just anti-gay-marriage (which has some relatively inoffensive variants), they're all straight-up "anyone making sexual contact with another person of the same sex is SATAN and must be DRIVEN OUT" types.

Which I guess makes it make both less and more sense. Less in that that's a pretty big contradiction, and more in that they were obviously farking crazy from the get-go.

AeAe: Wasn't there that recent congressman that liked to wrestle/tickle his male staff members? He resigned, like, last year or the year before ..


Not particularly anti-gay, iirc, though his party tends to be for the most part. Plus not really as dramatic to point out someone's kinda effeminate and inappropriate regarding personal space than it is to publish photos of them farking a two-dollar hooker in an alley or whatever.

Here's the reporter talking about it. I'm skeptical too, but this thing threatened the administration. If Penn State will cover up for pissant Jerry Sandusky, how hard will the White House cover up something like this?

In a lot of ways I feel really bad for these guys. Jerks, the lot of them, but still pitiable on some level. When you're advocating positions and stroking the flames of hate that drive teenage kids to suicide and the mentally unstable to violence while being the thing you rally against, can't be easy to sleep at night. Except for when it is, of course, and to hell with those.

Actually, in terms of sexual deviations it's relatively easy to explain. Some people get off on Taboo breaking in the same way that some people get off on feet or S&M. It's a kink with a lot of collateral damage, but I don't think psychologically it's any weirder or makes people more "pitiable" than preferring blondes to brunettes or whatever.

I hope nobody who is precious to you ever becomes part of that collateral damage. But if, God forbid, it does happen, I hope people you know are a lot more compassionate than you are.

Would have really enjoyed this but I think Adblock is blocking it. Can't see anything. That's one effed up slideshow. I have a couple Fark subscription gifts I haven't used. I'll give you one if you can give me a non-slideshow version that works on Firefox with Adblock.

(Silly bribe I know, but I haven't figured out who to give them to and they're just sitting there.)
 
2012-06-24 03:25:36 AM
At this point the more stubbornly anti-gay a public figure purports to be the more I simply assume they're hiding being gay themselves. Every one of 'em.

I'm sure Santorum is more than familiar with the frothy mix which was named after him.
