It’s barely news anymore when a Democrat is caught cheating on his wife with some younger woman, (unless she’s seriously hot) just as it barely catches our attention when some Republican is caught cheating on his wife with a younger man. It happens all the time. People who are attracted to power frequently consider themselves above the rules and cheat. On spouses, taxes, Othello, what have you.
The wrinkle is when gay men who were brought up in “morally upright” homes turn their self-loathing into law. This seems wrong to me. It ain’t my fault you were taught to hate instead of accepting and loving yourself. And it ain’t the fault of the people you would choose to victimize with your self-flagellation. (There’s a fellatio joke in there somewhere.)
Along comes Outrage. This is a film by some angry gays that are sick and tired of being persecuted by men pretending so hard not to be in their number that they would seek to deny them basic constitutional rights and create a second class citizenry… and all because they can’t come to terms with their own sexuality.
Of interest to me, the apparent “star of the show,” is my governor, Republican Charlie Crist. Crist is (or maybe I should say was) the lead contender for senator from Florida, and had already announced that he would be laying aside his responsibilities as governor to run his senatorial election. This seemed to be part of a strategy to carry him into the White House in 2012 or 2016.
I’m thinking he shouldn’t have quit his day job.
