Lesbians have some of the lowest STI rates of any group, so does that make it okay to talk about lesbianism?

It's funny. All these people who rant about homosexuality almost never mention lesbians, or the fact that a great many gay men don't engage in anal sex. To them, gayness is nothing but some kind of never ending bareback ass-orgy, and they can't stop thinking about it.

Seriously, these people are sick freaks. They can't stop obsessing over anal sex between men other than themselves. Who does that?

The problem isn't gay men having anal sex, you weirdos. The problem is the fact that the male reproductive act is an excellent vector for disease. Guys run around, literally shooting DNA and bodily fluids at things. That's the problem, and we have solutions for it already. If you could only encourage people to practice safe sex rather than live in denial of their fundamental natures then maybe we could make some damn progress.

Sick, obsessed, Puritan little shiats.

Sgt Otter: 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.

CorporatePerson: 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.


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.

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.
Someone better not tell him that pre-K through at least 5th grade already don't get sex-ed at all anyway. It would really f*ck with his worldview.

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.

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.

Fluorescent Testicle: Victorian euphemism? Hell, my flaming but permanently closeted uncle still calls himself that.


I've got an 76 year old uncle like that. He was married to a woman over 40 years ago and she came out soon after they divorced, but he's still living in the closet. I suppose they gave each other cover during that time since they were both gay. They have two great adult children together as well. Hell, he has lived with 3 or 4 different men through the years but he still thinks he's hiding it. From whom I don't know. My aunt has been with the same woman for almost 40 years and should be an inspiration to him for what he's missing not coming out. Growing up in a conservative family he just continues to pretend that he's not gay though. The entire family has known about him forever and is ok with it but him being a Baptist preacher he refuses to admit it to anyone. Especially himself. I last saw him 4 years ago during Christmas and he was with someone new again. He's a great guy but I'm sure he's got some conflicted feeling going on inside. For his sake I hope he get's them resolved before he dies because no one deserves to live in the shadows like he has.

Yeah, but right now the pre-'14 GOP purge is about getting rid of the Paleocons (the religious nutjobs) and getting back to their Bush-era roots, the Neocons (the unrestrained capitalism nutjobs).  It's progress, of a sort...like a blind person smacking his nose on a wall and taking a step back, realizing he went to far.

Watching "The Colbert Report" right now, and he's talking about Campfield's latest shenanigans, including legislation requiring school counselors to report to parents any conversations they have with students regarding the student's concerns over their own sexuality.

He's also trying to push through legislation that would cut the welfare benefits of parents whose children don't get good grades in school.

Confirmed bachelor - wow. Not surprised. Outrage! (On mobile - can't link to the IMDB documentary of that name just now).

That doc got this straight woman righteously pissed.

I was using the Victorian euphemism for suspiciously unmarried older man... not sure what context you're speaking of...

/I are confused

View the documentary film "Outrage" if you can. Lays out the history of the most virulent anti-gay politicians, many of whom are closet cases. "Confirmed Bachelor" in some cases usually equals self loathing closeted gay, and the documentary exposes their hypocrisy and cowardice.

It is worth a watch, I think.


Outrage is a great documentary. It should probably be updated now to cover the new crop of closeted politicians like that flaming dude with the good abs.

The finest troop I have ever known is named Stacey (and he's from SC). My finely honed gaydar pinged when I met him, but I was glad to have him on my team - he worked for me in the ANG for 3 years. He declined to re-enlist after 12 years because, I suspect, a bible thumping Lt Col in our chain of command went out of his way to be a jerk to him. The day we got the memo re: DADT repeal from Sec of the USAF, I forwarded it to him. He was pleased but disillusioned and couldn't be tempted to put a uniform on again. Our loss. Stacey is farking brilliant and brave.
