Did anyone else read that as "Gay Marriage and the Curse of RumpelstiltskinRepublicanism"

That really makes more sense.

Same-sex marriage will do nothing to address the five real-life crises facing people with same-sex attractions, many of whom do not end up in lifelong couplings: depression, eating disorders, suicide, sexually transmitted diseases, and addictions.

A), sometimes solutions are partial
B) You're right, the death of the homophobia you support will correct the first three

FTFA: "Not all gays, but disturbingly many of them, are literally powerless against immediate lusts, desperately seeking validation in ephemeral pleasures, and unable to express friendship or love on a higher plane than voluptuous carnality."

Nor will it cure cancer, change the sea levels or get me free tickets to a concert. What's your point?

It's not supposed to, you tool, it's supposed to address a bunch of other "real-life crises facing people with same-sex attractions."

Actually it will probably help all 5. The addictions are often tied to the depression and the STDs from people in the closet or on the DL having spontaneous encounters.

Wow, the right wing is just insane when it comes to homosexual matters.

I mean, just damn. I guess the latest talking point is Gay marriage is bad because gays don't desserve it, being all sleeping around and such. Because apparently, heteros don't sleep around.

Later on in the article, the author writes: "As a bisexual professor, I find myself woefully torn, even overwhelmed."

I can kind of see where he's coming from, as too often homosexual or msm relations are cast in the gay cultural mold, and not every man who wants to have sex with men is interested in participating in 'gay' culture.

The image of a tiny little enraged man stamping his feet in spittle-flecked anger until he breaks through the floorboards and falls to his death DOES remind me of the right wing's pathetic impotent rage against progress on civil rights for homosexuals.

I'm not giving American Stinker the click but I am assuming that's how they set up the analogy, yes?
 
2012-11-01 01:26:33 PM  
wait, what?

So, the author is a gay man that is in a "mixed orientation" marriage to a woman? And according to him, most gays are hedonists who are incapable of true love, therefore we should vote against the right to gay marriage?

The right wing obsession with the gays just hit anew level of weirdness IMO.

Well, you've got to admit that is a true statement; since straight marriage hasn't cured any of those ills for the heterosexual population either.

We can't let gays get married - they may bring in more cooties and break it even more than the straights have.

Like his arguments - that kind of thinking is superficial. I don't judge all of straight men by how they act at a football game. And in return I don't expect this guy to judge me by what the witnesses at the Folsom Street Fair.

/and based on his writing - this guy appears to have a number of issues that he has never fully resolved

Well they keep having all this sex outside of marriage. If they'd just stop that, they'd be better people, and then gay marriage would be fine.

Today I've seen Breitbart trying to use numerology to explain how Romney will win and Nate Silver is wrong, and American Thinker use fairy tales to explain why gay marriage is bad. Before I forget, there's the PJ Media link explaining what it's like to be a conservative airline stewardess.

I expect an article from Townhall using horoscopes, and World Net Daily detailing the plight of the conservative ticket taker by the end of the week.

Actually, it will help them all. Why? Because many of those "crises"are the result of society treating homosexuals as, at best, second-class citizens, and at worst as evil and deserving of death. Acceptance of homosexuals will reduce those "crises" to the levels faced by straights. But this idiot probably already knows that.

I'm sure that will get much better if they just force themselves to repress their natural desires and conceive children with people they have no sexual attraction to. That's the prettiest potato of them all!

Walt Whitman was not gay. He just like taking care of wounded and sick soldiers. In a very, nurturing, gentle, loving sort of way.

Nah, there are a few people around like the article writer. The right likes people who claim they were saved from homosexuality. They want to believe it is something that can be cured so they don't have to recognize gays as real people. Of course the people who claim they were saved have usually gone through some nutty conversion therapy that has damaged them pretty severely so they end in with these weird relationships talking about how good they are at suppressing their desires and how happy they are to be constantly on guard in case a little gayness seeps out. It's really kind of sad.
