Skip to comments.Obama Is Back on Everyone’s Gaydar

The pink tide has turned in Obamas favor.
After months of challenging interactions with his gay base, which included heckling from gay protestors at events and a drop in contributions from the community, Obama is back on track with LGBT voters.
The reversal, which took successfully repealing DADT and an administrative abandonment of the Defense of Marriage Act, which he ruled unconstitutional, has put Obama back on the gay radar as a positive force for the community.
As a bisexual man who doesnt hook up with guys, and having a brother who is gay, I have the good fortune of speaking to affluent members of the gay community, mostly in New York. Circa 2010, phrases I heard about Obama included, Hes not even a blip on the radar anymore. Nobody talks about him, as well as, You know, its actually becoming trendy to be a Republican.
I know: a group of gay east coast Republicans could have been a sign of the end times, and a description that woud have fit rather nicely into Bill Murrays dogs and cats living together speech, towards the final scene of Ghostbusters. Yet it very well could have happened, had Obama nixed his on my watch commitments to the gay community in favor of the status quo.
Obama is moving in the right direction towards same-sex marriage being nationally recognized and socially accepted. What would you say, its five years out, maybe 10? Unless we totally regress and allow a Palin, Pawlenty or Huckabee presidency. Gay voters are not wont to let this occur.
LOL! Good question.
The author wrote that so he could claim proto-membership in an aggrieved class.
It's this kind of ridiculous behavior that provoked Rush to term himself, a "MALE LESBIAN" --he's BEING ridiculous in order to show what it is.
I sometimes use the term with a straight-face, and people have grown so accustomed to thinking of others in these Grievance Elite groups that they are too scared to ask if I'm kidding.
To hasten the downfall of this thinking, I encourage you to lump yourself into some ridiculous-sounding aggrieved group --make it up, if you must.
Ok, here’s the test. You’re gay. You’re as gay as Judy Garland is dead! You’re sitting in a cafe in the Village when this tall, skinny, mulatto walks in. Now you don’t know him from Adam,...or Bruce,...or any other of your more recent conquests! But there something about him! Perhaps it’s those big ears, the skinny legs, the lonesome eyes, or the fact that he whistles his ‘s’s’. You know instantly he’s gay. He looks your way, you look his! He’s says, ‘Hi, I’m Barry. What’s your name?”
Who would that “oldest and dearest” friend be?
As a bisexual man who doesnt hook up with guys, ..... Im not gay, but my boyfriend is
Ha! That’s by a mile the best answer.
He’s returning to “Man’s Country.”
He’s so fugly he can’t get a date with anyone.
“It means hes attracted to both sexes but only hooks up with women.”
Oh crap... You just had to play it “straight”. I was hoping for more imaginative answers... You know, the kind that have me blowing soda out my nose.
“which he ruled unconstitutional”
That’s not how it works. The Supreme Court is the one that rules on constitutionality of laws, not the president.
But how would they know that?
He watches Anderson Cooper 360° with his pants around his ankles.
He’s the guy who has hot and cold running water, except for hot.
I'm a Liveatarian. A reptilian trapped in a mammalian body. I have been unfairly banned from every local pet shop. It's not like I don't pay for everything I eat. BTW, would someone turn up the heat please? I'm feeling a little sluggish.
Means his wife doesn't allow him a guy's night out!
I've finally come out as a trans-transgender, a man who wants to be a woman who want to be a man.
Go ahead, I dare you. Deny "who I am."
“I have one of my absolute best friends for the last 30 years who happens to be gay and I love her dearly,” Palin said, without mentioning names. “And she is not my gay friend, she is one of my best friends who happens to have made a choice that isn’t a choice that I have made.”
“Gay voters are not wont to let this occur.”
What are you threatening straight Americans with?
2% of the population? gee...I’m scared....(sarc)
In other words, not her closest and dearest friend, but one of a number of friends.
LOL! You are funny. :)
