It’s Not Gay If I Do It

January 16, 2010

I don’t know if anyone else has noticed this, but a lot of dudes who are against gay rights, gay marriage, gay anything….totally have bunches of gay sex. Let’s take a look:

Larry Craig, former republican politician from Idaho was a huge supporter of the Federal Marriage Amendment, which limited many rights for same-sex couples. His entire time in the Senate and Congress, he consistently voiced his opposition to rights for homosexuals. In 2007, he was charged with trying to get a blow job from a male cop in an airport bathroom.

Ted Haggard, former leader of the Association of Evangelicals, was one of President Bush’s advisers and consistently spoke out against homosexuality, labeling it an abomination . He was charged with, and admitted to paying male prostitutes for sex.

Bob Allen, former Florida State Rep, was a consistent supporter of banning adoption rights for homosexuals (along with numerous other anti-gay rights movements). He was later caught and charged with attempting to solicit sexual acts from a male prostitute (undercover cop) for money. According to the cop’s report, Allen said he would give the male prostitute $20 for the chance to give him a blow job. Allen later said that he was innocent, and thought the prostitute was trying to rob him (because when someone robs you, you try to deter them with 20 bucks and blow job?)

Three isn’t a lot, but it’s all I’m listing. Don’t think there’s more? At one point in 2007, someone made an entire deck of playing cards (52) with names and faces of anti-gay republicans who had been caught in some sort of gay sex scandal (the website has since been taken down, unfortunately).

So the question is raised: Does engaging in homosexual sex acts make you gay? No, probably not. Sexual identity and orientation is a deeply rooted trait that is difficult to define. These scandals aren’t about ‘closeted’ Republicans, or pedophile ministers, or even being gay. They’re about the heavy, undeniable hypocrisy of labeling homosexuality as wrong, an abomination, and denying rights to those who are homosexual…and then practicing homosexual acts.

Is it a deep, internal self-hatred of being a homosexual that makes these people lash out against gay rights, and then behind closed doors illicit them? Is it a feeling of power, or submission that drives them to this? Either way it’s fucking hilarious. Hate mongers being caught practicing what they label as terrible and forever being known as a dirty hypocrite? Yeah, it’s great.

    It’s been said that when you hate something so profoundly, it’s because you find in it things that you abhor about yourself. Hmm… guess these guys are living proof of that.

    These are men who definitely do not identify themselves as “gay.” They don’t like shopping, musical theater, or fruity drinks. THESE ARE MEN, god damn it, and real men are not gay. They just might, occasionally, enjoy the sensation of another man’s lips on their dicks. But oh no man, it’s not gay. ‘Cause we all know gay men aren’t real men-they’re failed women. In fact, by letting that guy deep throat your cock, you’re doing him a favor. You’re giving him the opportunity to live out his deepest desires.

    Shouldn’t those playing cards be called “player” cards? And when you draw a one-eyed Jack, what’s it look like?

    Hi Tegan:

    Welcome back and I look forward to working with you this semester on the Puma Press blogs. One quick thought. Did you create that image of the three cards spread like a hand? If not, you should be sure to provide an photo/image credit so anyone can accuse you of using someone’s else creative work without proper attribution. I know a link reference appears when you scroll the cursor over the image. But that’s not really enough to make clear that this isn’t your original work. If it is your work, it doesn’t hurt to still use a photo credit; because you deserve to be recognized for being creative and adding another element to a good post. Shows your readers how hard you are working for them. :)

    Thanks,
    Le Templar

      Whoops, I thought I did link it back, sorry. I corrected it, thanks for letting me know!

    It’s too bad the playing card site was taken down. That would do good business, I think. And of course liking a little hairy johnson doesn’t make these guys gay. Being gay might not be a choice but NOT being gay is.
