Often this New Conservative and Lobotomised City of San Francisco feels like a City of Shallow and Superficial, Bougi and Pretentious, Elitist Lah-Tee-Dah Wealthy “Straight” Assholes who feel the need to show off their wealth, particularly in The Castro.
Hola a todos. Mi amigo/my friend and I first noticed the “straight” takeover of The Castro a number of years ago, although I think it was happening some time before we even noticed it. What told us that The Castro barrio/neighbourhood was changing was when we saw the first “straight” make-out session around the Harvey Milk Plaza under the big Rainbow Flag. Why would a “straight” couple want to make out under a giant Rainbow Flag? That pattern has repeated itself countless times since. It was startling and very annoying to see that because I had never seen any “straight” couple make out in The Castro during the Gay Mecca Days. It just didn’t happen. Yeah, well that was then. And “straight” (the required him-tall/her-short, subservient and desperate for attention) make out scenes are pretty much all you see around here now. They even make out in restaurants and some restaurant patrons have written in their restaurant reviews that they have felt like screaming to these obnoxious los pendejos: “Get a room, somewhere! Who wants to be eating dinner at a table where ‘straight’ basura are making out at the next table over? Can’t you control yourselves and your hormones long enough to eat dinner? This restaurant is not your bedroom!” By contrast, it’s rare to see a gay couple making out in The Castro today. It can be rare to see a gay couple, period. It’s so rare to see a gay couple making out that I do a double-take when I see that and stare at them a bit to enjoy it and appreciate them. But I’ve read comments from other GLBTQs asking, “Must you make out in The Castro, straight couples?”
I heard some Queer tourists the other day on Market Street in San Francisco talking with some locals. The tourists had stopped to ask some locals sitting out front of one of the many coffee stores around here: “Where are all the gay guys that are supposed to be here?” I stopped to hear the response to that question. I didn’t hear the tourists say where they were from but I could sense they were very disappointed with what they had seen of The Castro and the so-called gay community they had expected to see here. (I say so-called gay community because there’s no sense of “community” here anymore; The Castro feels very fake, cold and unfriendly today with class warfare. Snooty, elitist wealthy basura living right beside the poor and homeless). I heard one of the tourists say, “We expected to see hundreds or thousands of gay guys in the streets and around the City like we’ve heard so much about over the years. I thought this was the Gay Mecca. [Ed. Well it used to be]. Since we’ve been here we’ve seen “straight” couples with baby strollers, and with everybody else, we can’t tell who is “straight” and who is gay.” [Ed. That's exactly what I've said. They're very observant.] It was interesting to hear that because I’ve often wondered what tourists think when they visit here now. Are they disappointed at what they see? Clearly these tourists were. I suppose if one never saw videos or images of the former Gay Mecca, one wouldn’t know exactly what to expect. But I suspect most tourists visiting The Castro today don’t expect The Castro to look like any place else which is how it looks, except for the Disney-fied palm trees, Rainbow Flags and one intersection with dirty/stained Rainbow crosswalks. I heard the locals trying to explain to these disappointed tourists that San Francisco is now the “Straight” Mecca and no longer the Gay Mecca. One local said to the tourists, “Welcome to the heterosexual Castro,” to the disgust of the Queer tourists. I heard one of the tourists say, “Then what’s up with all the Rainbow Flags and the Rainbow crosswalks down the street there?” The local said, “It’s all marketing; it’s to exploit people just like you but you don’t sound like the type that can be exploited.” Yes, as I’ve said: You can put up Rainbow Flags and do a shoddy job installing Rainbow crosswalks in one intersection for Brand LGBTTM marketing purposes to exploit the gullible tourists, but that won’t make the area gay. And when the tourists see the many fleets of baby strollers and one young, white “straight” couple after the other holding hands, embracing, making out and looking desperate to have sex right there on the sidewalk, GLBTQ tourists are not fooled. Instead, it gives a false impression/a lie/it looks deceptive which is what these tourists were saying. Before I left, I heard one of the tourists say that they had already been to one of the gay bars only to see “straight” couples in there making out. Uh huh. (Don’t get me started on that!) They asked about the “mixed bars” (where “straights,” gays and these so-called hipsters go) and what they were about? They said they didn’t understand the concept of “mixed bars.” Well, they’re not alone; I don’t understand that either. Why would GLBTQs want to be in a bar hanging out with “straight” people? I couldn’t hear the response to that question, but from reading reviews of one of those bars, it seems that heteronormative gay guys like to go to the “mixed bars.” I suspect it’s the same conservative GLBTQ basura that has welcomed “straights” to take over The Castro. It reminds me of being a Queer boy and wanting to go into a “straight” bar instead of a gay bar. WTF is that about? It’s about being heteronormative and a closet case with some gay shame. Gay “Assimilation:” Back to the 1950s and Going Backwards: More Gay Guys Getting Married To Females and I want to go back in the closet. While researching “mixed bars,” I read that the gay, heteronormative, political opportunist and corporate parasite Scott Penis had his recent victory party — el pendejo won by only 2% as of this writing; no mandate, no landslide — at one of the “mixed bars,” instead of a gay bar. Considering that this conservative gay prude has helped sanitise and turn The Castro into a “Straight” Mecca, that should surprise no one that he chose not to have his victory party in a gay bar. El pendejo has “issues.” He says he’s gay and has done all he can to exploit the “gay community” for his rabid, anti-homeless, elitist conservative agenda), but I’ve never seen him with anyone. His phone seems to be his partner. Every time I have the misfortune of seeing that basura he’s hunched over mesmerised by his screen. And frankly I don’t know who would want to be with that prudish pendejo. Since he first ran for public office here, I and others have had the sense that he’s uncomfortable being gay and would prefer to be “straight.” He certainly has done all he can to make The Castro “straight.” So again, the bar that he had his victory party in is what amounts to a “straight” bar that some gay people go to. Some locals have asked: Is this guy just here to use and exploit the gay community for his agenda? It won’t surprise some of us that after he leaves San Francisco to go to Sacramento we hear that he’s gotten married to a female and has kids. The guy obviously has issues and enjoys exploiting people for his agenda, as so many of these fucked-up-in-the-head political corporate parasitic basura do.
Here in the “Straight” Mecca — which is mostly comprised of super-wealthy, bougi, elitist, white/young shallow and superficial techie trash who I’ve heard say to their tech bros: “if you’re not putting out product, you’re nothing!” Phew! (Asshole: The #1 Requirement For Being A Techie) — there are also the many desperate-looking-for-sex “straight” couples around. They are very obvious and obnoxious. They come to The Castro to cheat on their husband/wife or partner. Their thinking seems to be: “Let’s meet in The Castro. My wife/husband never goes to The Castro so we’ll be safe over there for cheating/meeting for the first time (and the unspoken part: then go to that motel to have sex.)”
San Francisco has two major industries today: The City is a Baby Factory (these people have never heard of birth control?) and the City has been raped by the billionaire-owned tech industry, and one will see the techie zombies (they think they are too good to see homeless people) wherever one looks.
I’ll never quite understand the Baby Factory phenomena. The way it usually works is that these young, “straight” white couples move to San Francisco seemingly to have babies rather than move to their final destination. Then after the child has started walking, she whispers in his ear, “Honey, don’t you think it would be nice if little (fill in name of child) had a bigger place to play, and a nice big back yard to play with the other children in the neighbourhood (unspoken: of the same class and income bracket of course)?” Him: “Well yes honey that does sound nice. Maybe we should look for a bigger place in the suburbs or elsewhere.” Maybe you should have done that before you moved in here and helped to push out the GLBTQ community, los pendejos! So, these “straight” couples leave San Francisco and go to a bigger house where the child has a back yard to play in so that the child doesn’t grow up in “that nasty big City.” We’ve all heard that “nasty big City” stuff, I suspect. Well, you didn’t seem to have any problem with “that nasty big City” when you moved in here and helped change San Francisco and sanitised it to the prudish conservative way you wanted it to be.
After I walked away from listening to this Queer tourist couple, I began wondering whether they planned to go up to Twin Peaks to see the view of the City and Bay Area. If so, they should expect to see the same thing up there. But that didn’t used to be the case. Twin Peaks has changed too, unfortunately. I’ve been going up there recently and the “straights” now go up there to make out with their mandatory hand-holding, and their arm-in-arm routine. I’ve seen the same in-your-face stuff one sees in The Castro. Twin Peaks has always been mostly “straight” even though it’s right up the hill from The Castro, but in the Old City the “straight” couples were not so in-your-face with their sexuality as they are now. Something changed here around the time that GLBTQ marriage equality was achieved in the Cesspool/the US, and that is around that time the “straight” couples must have decided to be as in-your-face with their “straight” sexuality as possible, because that’s the way it’s been since that time. It’s as if they want to send the message: “We now own this City and The Castro. Get out of here, GLBTQs. You can live anywhere (in the closet, maybe). This is now our City.” Up on Twin Peaks, I see the neediest and most helpless females. They can’t seem to do anything for themselves. They can’t even hold a blanket around themselves to stay warm. The needy female needs, expects or demands her subservient guy to “cup her” with the blanket around her. As one of my “straight” friends reminded me again recently: “Guys are required to do all these things for their needy female as part of entrance rights to that smelly pussy.” Occasionally I see gay guys up on Twin Peaks (according to my reliable gaydar) but they act like closet cases as if they don’t want anyone to think they’re gay. I have not seen any guys or females making out or holding hands up there. I don’t see that even though we’ve been repeatedly assured by the conservative corporatist idiots of Brand LGBTTM that “gay is now mainstream” and “gay people can live anywhere.” Utter nonsense! If that were the case, gay people/gay couples would feel comfortable and safe holding hands and making out on Twin Peaks right here in the geographic center of San Francisco and right up the hill from the former Gay Mecca.
A ratio of 4 gay couples to 40 “straight” couples
Mi amigo walked along Market Street in San Francisco on Sunday morning (27 November 2016) and this is what he saw: Four gay couples not holding hands and about 40 “straight” couples holding hands. About one-third of the “straight” couples had babies or baby strollers. And the sound of crying, screeching babies and children filled the air. Most of the “straight” couples had a phone in their hand whether they were talking with someone or not. The him-tall/her-short requirement is even more extreme now. It seems that it is required that the guy be a foot and a half taller than needy her, whereas a difference of 6″ in height was their previous requirement. I’ve suggested in past articles that these needy-for-attention las chicas carry step ladders with them so that they can more easily beso/kiss their chico when they reach the corner of Castro/Market under the big Rainbow Flag (that flag is only there for tourist purposes at this point). As mi amigo was walking down Market Street, there was a “straight” couple behind him (of course tall-short). If I were to transcribe their conversation it would be the following: “Like, like, I like, like, like,” with the second “like” much higher in volume and pitch than the first “like” as they’re trying to point out that he needed a coffee. She answered back with even more “likes” that sounded more like “lick” about the quality of the coffee at a particular “like” coffee shop “like.” Mi amigo said it was so nice to get away from these “like, lick” basura. It was frustrating having to hear that, he said. Fuck these techie trash. They are the scum of the Earth. And this City eats the ass of tech — giving corporate welfare (tax breaks) to billionaire-owned tech companies based in San Francisco — and look what a mess it’s turned into. For example, the street I live on has turned into a stop-and-go parking lot during rush-hour every day. That was not the case in the Old City. People all over the Bay Area are complaining about the Los Ángeles-style traffic we now have due to the techie trash who have taken over the entire Bay Area.
Speaking of which: Often this New Conservative and Lobotomised City of San Francisco feels like a City of Assholes. That makes sense, since San Francisco is the Tech Capital having been raped by the obnoxious and self-absorbed and self-entitled techie trash — who only care about themselves — and where being an asshole seems to be the #1 requirement for being a techie. Most techies are very elitist “straight,” young and white (with some Asian) and many are very immature from what we’ve seen. Ageism and sexism are a well-known part of the billionaire-owned tech industry.
The Him-Tall/Her-Short “Straight” Height Requirement
Oh by the way, I did a little research on this him-tall/her-short height requirement that “straight” couples now have and from what I read that’s a head-trip on her part. Not surprising. I can easily believe that considering what I’ve seen from these desperate-for-attention/needy females. (jesus fucking christ, get some therapy, la perra!). The guy is usually not that concerned about “his girl’s” height. It’s the “high maintenance” and needy-for-attention female that (for psychological reasons) must have a guy that’s at least a foot or more taller than herself. These needy-females have never heard of feminism and see the guy as a “tall protector” of delicate/wet-doily/submissive little her who seems to enjoy being a boot licker for “her man” if he lather$ her with lot$ of attention and expensive gift$ including “wining and dining” her on a regular basis. (I don’t know how guys can put up with this shit! I know I couldn’t. I wouldn’t have the patience for it.) Personally, I think this him-tall/her-short is also a learned behaviour (learned from television) since I see it all the time with “straight” couples on the corporate media. One of my neighbours is of an older generation and she was telling me that she and her esposo are the same height and all the male-female couples of her generation were/are the same height. She finds this him-tall/her-short requirement very strange. In fact, she brought it up with me and that’s how we got talking about it. By contrast, as I told her, most gay and lesbian couples are the same height. They don’t have this fucked-up-in-the-head dominant/submissive nonsense going on with them. They may have it sexually as a sexual turn-on, but it’s not part of their public life.
Last febrero/February 2016, I read an article which gave these numbers confirming San Francisco’s “Straight” Mecca:
The article started out by lying and saying that “San Francisco is still extremely gay.” No it’s not. Why do people lie? The same article went on to contradict itself by saying that 6.2% of the population identifies as GLBTQ, according to a poll from a well-known pollster. 6% ??? That’s all? 6% is not “extremely gay.” That’s barely anything. Add a zero to it (60%) and I’d call that getting closer to the “extremely gay” side. As an analogy, if a politician received 6% of the vote s/he would be dismissed as irrelevant. 6% is nothing while they go on about “San Francisco is still extremely gay.” And I sense that what remains of the “gay community” that is still here has gone back in the closet. I can’t remember the last time I heard the word “gay” spoken here. Mi amigo/My friend often walks by some gay bars on his walks around The Castro and many times he has talked about how obnoxiously “tough guy, macho, jock and heteronormative” the guys are behaving outside of the gay bars. They make him feel uncomfortable (that didn’t use to be the case), and he’s usually comfortable around most people.
I wish I could remember where I read/heard this, but it was said that out of all the gay areas in major US cities (Chelsea in Manhattan, West Hollywood, Dupont Circle in the District of Columbia, The Castro, etc) that it was thought that The San Francisco’s Castro would be the only gay area to survive a “straight” takeover. Unfortunately, The Castro has not survived its “straight” takeover. The Castro is now the new Straight Mecca. Someone may be asking: Aren’t there any gay guys there now? There are some, depending upon the day or night and time of day or night. But one never knows whether the gay guys/gay couples we see are from here or elsewhere. But often on his walks, mi amigo comes back and tells me that he saw all “straight” couples holding hands and maybe one or two Queer boys (and they were on their phones) and one Queer couple holding hands. That’s it. And as many gays and lesbians have said, these days it’s hard to tell who is gay/Queer and who is not unlike the Gay Mecca days where thousands of gay guys were not ashamed of “looking gay,” they did not have gay shame and they were out of the closet and they didn’t try to pretend to be “straight.” These days, gay guys are trying to look like “straight” guys and lesbians are trying to look like bougi “straight” females with long blond or brown hair (out of a bottle?) having mostly abandoned the butch “dyke” look of the former Gay Mecca decades). I also read recently that the Dykes on Bikes event which is held in Dolores Park on the Saturday before the corporatist mobile commercial known as “SF Pride” has been ruined by obnoxious frat guys and their girlfriends. As I’ve said many times before, we’re quickly heading backwards: Gay “Assimilation:” Back to the 1950s. But most people don’t want to acknowledge that it seems.
While writing this article I read a headline with its hyped description about an upcoming “amazing” television programme which will be on one of the US corporate media networks about
LGBTQ GLBTQ rights. Now let me take a guess: All the commercials shown during this programme will be what they always are: Heteronormative. “Straight” couples holding hands and/or making out. Despite the bull shit spewed by Brand LGBTTM that “gay is now mainstream, “straight” couples in commercials is all I ever see on my television no matter which channel of the US corporate media I’m monitoring. I never see a gay couple or a lesbian couple (and the lesbian couple is more acceptable to the prejudiced/bigoted public). But from what I see and sense around San Francisco, there would be no interest in this television programme. Of all the articles I’ve written about GLBTQ topics, it’s the sex-related articles that people are interested in and not the GLBTQ-rights related articles. I get the sense that most people are bored by that. For their television programme, one would hope they would get the order of the letters correct to reflect the original gay and lesbian rights’ movement. So they would use GL for Gay and Lesbian and not that ass-backwards LG which is that corporatist and conservative Brand LGBTTM rewriting of Gay and Lesbian/GLBTQ history where the former Gay Rights’ Movement Legacy has been hijacked by Lesbians). But I suspect that “amazing” television programme will follow corporatist Brand LGBTTM and their revisionist/rewriting of GLBTQ history. (Related: Corporatist Brand LGBT (TM) deserve what they get and PrEP and “Our Sexual Revolution ?”).
In many ways today, it feels as though we’ve come full circle in going back to where we were near the beginning of the former Gay Rights’ Movement despite some pro-GLBTQ laws having been passed … and which some people are currently working to overturn. As I’ve said many times, I see more and more gay guys — according to my reliable gaydar — going back in the closet. They’re holding hands and making out with females trying to pretend they’re “straight.” Again, I get this sense that most people including GLBTQs are disinterested and bored by gay-related topics. They’re bored by and/or ashamed of the Rainbow Flag, as if the Rainbow Flag today is considered to be “too gay” for the now-conservative and heteronormative GLBTQ “community.” The obnoxious and supposedly gay sports bar near The Castro has always refused to fly the Rainbow Flag (except on Pride Sunday to exploit the tourists, then their flag goes back in the closet the following Monday). Apparently the owners of that bar feel that the Rainbow Flag conflicts/clashes with their macho jock image. That heteronormative bar flies the flags of corporate sports teams outside instead. Then awhile back across the street from that bar, a “mixed” bar (translation: “straight” with a few heteronormative gay guys there) took down their Rainbow Flag outside. This was presumably done so as to not offend the “straights” of the Straight Mecca and the heteronormative gay guys. Originally, before that bar opened it was posted on its windows that this bar was planned to be a gay bar, but those plans were quickly changed. They removed the word gay. Also, awhile back, the gym in The Castro unofficially known as “the gay gym” sanitised the interior of the gym. They took ugly drab gray paint and painted over the Rainbow Flag colours that were originally painted on the columns in the gym, presumably to cater to the increasing “straight” clientele. “You don’t want to offend any bigoted/anti-gay ‘straights’ with Rainbow Flag colours!” [It's always good to cater to bigotry and prejudice, isn't it?....sarcasm intended.] “The ‘straights’ have priority here now, you know!” seemed to be the message coming from the heteronormative management of this gym. After receiving a few public complaints about this, that gym put up a small “token” Rainbow Flag near the inside entrance to the gym. I walked by that gym recently to see if that flag is still there. It is, but barely. It’s hanging crooked.
All of this pisses me off. I and thousands of other Queers didn’t pick up and move 3,000 miles away (I moved to San Francisco from the District of Columbia) leaving everything we had to have this happen. One local Queer boy asked some years ago: “Can’t we Queers at least have this little gay mecca area of San Francisco for our own? You ‘straights’ have the entire world and the rest of this City?” No Queer boy, the “straights” want it all! They’re never satisfied. The basura. The conservatives will tell us in an arrogant and patronising way: “Well things change, you know.” Oh fuck off, basura! The conservative trash whined, moaned and complained the entire time the Gay Mecca existed. They couldn’t stand the Gay Mecca. They wanted The Castro to be what it is today: A sterile Straight Mecca. If I had run into any of these conservative basura when I moved here and heard them whining about The Castro becoming a Gay Mecca I would have told them: “Well things change, you know.” Los pendejos. Observing their sour, cold, unfriendly and nasty depositions today, they certainly don’t seem to be happy with the Straight Mecca either. Maybe they’re sour because the place is so sanitised that there’s nothing here anymore other than overpriced mediocre meat-based restaurants, that useless conservative theatre that helped to sanitise The Castro and that features Disney “sing-alongs” for the breeder “straight” couples and their children complete with silly hats given to the audience, and there are some gay bars for the conservatives to get drunk in. That about covers what is here today.
When, if ever, GLBTQs come out of their coma and realise that the price of freedom is eternal vigilance, it will be too late. And frankly, being thoroughly disgusted with what the GLBTQ so-called “community” has become: pro-corporate and conservative Brand LGBTTM, the way I feel about it at this point is that they deserve what they get. Fin. The End. Chau.—el barrio rosa
UPDATE (5 de diciembre de 2016/5 December 2016): Mi amigo/My friend saw two long-time San Francisco residents/homeowners yesterday. They are of the Old City (the once proudly-radical and alternative San Francisco). They’re moving away. They are a gay couple. Mi amigo stopped to talk with them and he began his conversation with them by saying, “Not another gay couple leaving The City?” They told him they are leaving San Francisco because of the threat of the “Donald Trump Jackboots invading San Francisco and imprisoning all the gays.” They said that their friends are all leaving too. They told him the reason why there are so many gay people moving out of San Francisco is because of the Trump threat. They are moving 3 hours north of San Francisco to live in a small cabin until Trump is out of office and the threat is gone. They also said they’re moving because The Castro/the neighbourhood has changed. It is no longer gay-friendly. Chau.—el barrio rosa
My thoughts on this: This seems a bit extreme to me. If the Trump regime wants to go after “the gays” one easy way to do so would be by using their “paper trail” and their phone records. That’s one negative with having all of your information in one place,
smartphone stupidphone addicts, in the case of surveillance/data-mining and/or being rounded up. The Trump regime could look at one’s memberships in and donations to the many corporatist Brand LGBTTM organisations as well as gay marriage licences, and the Trump regime could obtain those records from San Francisco City Hall. The Trump regime could also go after people who didn’t vote for him, so that would include the gay Hillary-bots in San Francisco. But I wouldn’t think this “round up” would happen for awhile. I don’t know that one would be any safer in a cabin in the woods than in San Francisco’s Straight Mecca. These days one cannot run anywhere to get away from our many problems. And the “gay community” has been moving out of this City long before Trump ever showed up as a presidential candidate. The “gay community” seem to have completely forgotten the reason for gay meccas in major cities. One of the reasons for San Francisco’s Gay Mecca was that thousands of us fled from bigotry, anti-gay prejudice and repression to live together safely all in one place (San Francisco’s new Gay Mecca) — rather than spread all over the anti-gay/prejudiced/bigoted US — because the thinking was “there’s safety in numbers” as a safe place for us to be and to be with each other. We were all together in one place when there was a need to come together to protest injustices. For example, when cops came into The Castro to fuck with the gay community la policía/the police got hell for it. They had their cop cars burned along with massive protests from the gay community. Gay guys didn’t act like subservient, obedient-to-the-Establishment/wet-doily, heteronormative, conservative, corporatist cop bootlickers in those days as they do today. Gay guys didn’t put up with any shit in those proudly-radical days. I miss those days and it disgusts me what the gay community has turned into. But nobody seems to care, or very few. So fuck it! That’s how I feel about it now. But today, with the former Gay Rights’ Movement dead they — corporatist Brand LGBTTM — seem to be in a collective coma having erased our history from memory and/or abandoned it. We’ve heard repeatedly from conservative corporatist Brand LGBTTM that “gay people can live anywhere now because gay is now mainstream.” As I’ve written many times, only a delusional wishful-thinking idiot would believe that nonsense. And it would seem that the “gay community” no longer believes that lie otherwise they wouldn’t be “running to the hills” at this time. But I thought, “we can live anywhere now,” no? So why are you running from San Francisco’s Castro because the Trump regime will take office next month (even though one gets the distinct impression by his actions/behaviour that he’s already the president)? It’s obviously easier to round people up if they’re all in one place in major cities. If it were the US military that began rounding gay people up, which side would the San Francisco Police Department take considering there are many gay and lesbian cops in the SFPD? Would the SFPD fight the US military to stop the rounding up of gay people in San Francisco? I don’t know. I do know that the response time from cops to gay people being rounded up would be much faster in San Francisco than out in a rural area. The SFPD has a fast response time. Chau.—el barrio rosa
Going Backwards: More Gay Guys Getting Married To Females
The fucked-up and hypocritical US public: Gay legal rights = good. Gay guys kissing in public = bad.
Queering The Castro (A futile effort at this point)
Then there’s this:
A Republican politician who sent sexual text messages to a teen boy said in an interview that he is “not gay.” This politician who is the president of Jefferson Parish in New Orleans and who is married to a female, admitted to exchanging “improper texts” with a 17-year old boy last month. This politician called it a “bad decision.” Why, because you got caught? He says he regretted his actions. Again, only because you got caught having your gay fantasy text messages? Why don’t you fucking come out of the closet? He was the mayor of a town in Louisiana at the time he texted this teenage boy. But this closet-case politician says “To simply say it, I’m not gay.”
[My response: Of course you’re not gay, Mr Republican politician. No one would want to allege that because we all know it’s “bad to be gay,” correct? That’s the message you’re sending, and we can’t have that! And this is exactly the closet-case mentality I talk about in the article above and in many other articles I’ve written. And I’m sick of it while corporatist and conservative Brand LGBTTM lie and tell us that “gay is now mainstream” and “gay people can live anywhere” (yeah, maybe in the closet like this politician in denial).]
