Stacy, who will be IMPOSSIBLE to live with if Alabama whips Notre Dame next month, links a story about a Lesbian, who was married to a man that might be the next mayor of New Yawk, and risks the dreaded Homophobe label!
Hunter Walker of the New York Observer highlights the lesbian past of Chirlane McCray who, for the past 20 years, has been the wife of Bill de Blasio, a likely candidate for mayor of New York City. Such stories are a lot less rare than the “gay gene” theorists would have you believe, but because the born-that-way mantra is essential to the argument that homosexuals should be treated as a special category for civil-rights purposes, these stories don’t usually get much attention.
Accusations of “homophobia” in 3, 2, 1 . . .
Me? I really could not care much less if they are born, or choose to play for the other team, that is not of concern to me, but it does remind me of a joke that might get me labelled a Homophobe.
Why don’t Lesbians wear makeup when they diet? Because you cannot eat Jenny Craig with Mary Kay on your face. Which reminds me that I should post about why service industry people HATE the women of Mary Kay. But, I will save that story for another time. Right now, I am waiting to see if I am called a Homophobe first, or accused of telling bad jokes. And, as an exit question, if people are born Homophobic, do they deserve civil rights protection? HMMMM
I wonder how the media will handle this.
Will Smith get a pass? Likely so, the media would have a field day if a Conservative had done this, but a Hollywood actor? Nah. This does point out the hypocrisy of the “Gay rights” activists though. Smith is more likely to catch grief than, say, his wife, Jada Pinkett-Smith would if she had smacked a reporter who groped and tried to kiss her. Back in the early 1990′s I had a heated debate, in a bar with two pretty girls over “Homophobia”. How we got on the topic I forget, but at one point they asked me what I would do if a Gay man tried to kiss me. I believe my response was “knock him on his ass” or words to that affect. They accused me of being afraid of Gay people, an accusation they thought would shut me up. Instead of being silenced, I asked them what they would do if a man they did not know tried to kiss them. Without blinking, they said they would slap him, shove him away. Then you are Heterophobes I shot back. That gave them pause, until they came back with a typical Liberal response that there was no such things a Heterophobes.
As I have said before, Liberalism is largely an ideology of convenience. To these girls, one of whom I ended up dating for a few months, yes it was strictly physical, it was morally righteous to have such a blatant double standard. They wanted, or they thought, equal rights for Homosexuals, but they did not want to hold Homosexuals to equal expectations. To them, somehow, it was OK to hold straight guys to a higher moral standard than Gay guys. I suppose they never realized that by imposing lower standards of decency upon Gay men, they were actually demeaning those men. But, again, Liberalism is an ideology of convenience. And, it would have been inconvenient for these girls to actually expect “equality” to include equality of behavioral standards.
Stacy McCain, who is neither a scientist, nor a Lesbian posts about some science that has piqued his interest.
Denial can be a powerful defense mechanism. Apparently, homophobia is too — at least according to a new study from researchers from the University of Rochester, the University of Essex, England, and the University of California in Santa Barbara.
Their research concluded that the intense fear and repulsion college-age homophobes feel toward gays and lesbians is likely due to the fact that they see similarities in themselves.
“Individuals who identify as straight but in psychological tests show a strong attraction to the same sex may be threatened by gays and lesbians because homosexuals remind them of similar tendencies within themselves,” said lead author Netta Weinstein of the University of Essex, according to Science Daily.
Interesting, of course it is true that some people do over compensate.Your anti-porn zealot who secretly plays choke the chicken in front of their PC every night. Or the prohibitionist who battles against alcoholism. Of course,this study might be outcome based , so who knows how accurate it is. But, I am very interested to find that Stacy McCain is interested in a scientific study that has lots of merit.
For many years, I’ve been working on a scientific study to confirm my hypothesis that some lesbians — the really hot ones — are in fact secretly bisexual and eager to have me join them for a threesome.
Now THAT is science I would love to delve into! Strictly for the science of course. Because science is important!
