The general rule of thumb is if you're anti-gay, it means you're secretly gay.

If you describe homosexuality as an addiction, you're definitely secretly gay.

It makes 100% perfect sense why this man compares homosexuality to heroin.

And you can bet there are several reporters and bloggers and general farker-uppers looking into every little bit of this guy's past.  They may not find anything, but they're finding out who his college roommates are, who he dated in high school, why his camp councilor can't get within 100 yards of elementary schools... It's kind of a psuedo-Streisand Effect: there may be nothing there, but he drew attention to it and unintended consequences are the most fun.

I don't think the anti-gay = secretly gay thing is necessarily true, but I think you're right on the money that if someone compares it to addiction they've definitely got at least some level of same-sex attraction. I don't see how you can see it that way unless it's a struggle that you fight every day, constantly trying to avert your eyes and not check out people of the same sex.

I don't think rabid anti-gay=closeted gay either.  I have too many relatives who are definitely straight but terribly anti-gay.  Statistically they couldn't all be closeted gay.  For them it's more of a "it's different and therefore scary and I don't have any idea what to think about it" problem. When you add religion to that, well, people are going to be irrational about teh ghey.  My dad was pretty anti-gay (grew up in Texas, was in the military in the 60's, white republican country club lifestyle afterward).  Just before he retired he had a job where he had a gay co-worker, and they became friends.  Now my conservative dad's opinion is "who cares what they do?  I don't.  They're just people."  That's ok.

in what part of this state do pre-k children currently have sex education as part of their curriculum?
 
2013-02-08 02:11:23 AM
Campfield's proposed law would prohibit pre-K through eight-grade students from being taught any material that was "inconsistent with natural human reproduction," such as homosexuality. He said the issue was inappropriate for children.

come to think about this more - does this rule out any mention of cloning in 8th grade biology class?

i can't decide which is worse - ephemeral laws regulating what can be taught or pretending that 8th graders don't know how to use the internet

Being old and ignorant exempts you from the rule.

But if you make your money trying to stop people from having gay sex, you're gay.

Campfield said AIDS was such large problem in Africa because sodomy was more prevalent in that part of the world.

Now I understand! He wants all the gay sex for himself. Probably doesn't realize that shared fun is double fun, especially when it comes to sex.

fusillade762: Campfield said AIDS was such large problem in Africa because sodomy was more prevalent in that part of the world.

[Citation needed]


One of the reasons AIDS is a big problem in Africa is heterosexual "dry sex."  I guess a lot of dudes in sub-Saharan Africa think wet pussy is gross, and like it dry.  So the women actually use special poultices and home-made drugs to dry out their vaginas before sex.  It leads to a lot more ripping and tearing of the vagina than normal sex, making the woman extremely vulnerable to AIDS transmission.

Aw, c'mon, guys, he's just trying to be a good Republican.

He obviously got the memo.

You know the one the GOP sent around recently 'splainin' how they gotta change their "message" without abandoning their "principles".

Well the GOP have previously tried comparing gay sex to things like pedo priests, polygamous cults and bestiality and none of those comparisons seemed to pan out for them in terms of winning votes.

Santorum's infamous "man on dog" quote, for example, was so totally savaged in the press and on the web that it's impacted his political career negatively to this very day and made him the punchline of many jokes.

Aware of all this, Stacey "Braintrust" Campbell here musta thought about gay sex a lot before he finally figured on the "gays = heroin addicts" analogy and is no doubt patting himself on the back right now for being the one to get their message across in a new way.

He's still laughably wrong of course but at least he's trying something different.

Bless his closeted, self loathing heart.

/Not *entirely* a new idea for the GOP, btw.

People who are anti-gay in the "Ugh, the gay is so icky, I wish they'd just go back to being invisible" sense, probably not a closet case. If they're a ranter but it's all bible-thumping silliness, they may just be a victim of the mind disease called religious fundamentalism but not gay. But if their talk about homosexuality is indistinguishable from a sermon given by Definitely Not Gay Man's alter ego Pastor Strate, yeah... they may as well be wearing rainbow speedos and a pink tutu at a gay pride march.

Old enough to know better: More Republican stupidity. I fail to even be surprised anymore.


I'm morbidly fascinated by watching how they manage to keep topping themselves over and over and over.  I wonder when they'll finally hit bottom?  I wonder if there even IS a bottom anymore.

"The homosexual community gets AIDS at a 50 times higher rate than the heterosexual community," he claimed.

So, wait, given that the actual number is four, why did he feel the need to make shiat up?  4x is pretty scary on its own, I would think.

//If being gay were like shooting heroin, I probably wouldn't be sticking with women.

Since March 2005, Campfield has maintained a public blog[39] that includes a warning that any quotation from it for print will be charged at "$1,000 USD per word".

I'm sure he'll have as much luck with that as Kanye West gets with taking his kilt pictures removed from the internet.

I remember learning about the Holocaust and the Supreme Court in middle school. So if this law goes into effect and a teacher mentions gay victims of the former and the gay marriage issue before the latter, they would be committing a crime. Brilliant.

Or if a grade school teacher is asked why some classmates have two moms and they briefly explain, that's an offense too.

Yes, we farking do.  You idiot.  DARE may have increased drug usage in this country, but it has dramatically reduced some of the dangers that plagued the drug using community in the 60s, 70s and 80s.

I consider Republicans to be enemies of the state, decency, and modern intellect. They are the worst part of America, and I'm glad they easily label themselves for my derision.
