Posted on 12/19/2004 3:47:25 PM PST by The Loan Arranger
Liberals are staring into the red belly of this country with incomprehension and fear. They are wondering how one even begins to talk to the huge percentage of voters who told exit pollsters last Tuesday that "moral values" guided them in choosing president Bush. Among straight liberals there is a sudden feeling that it is desperately urgent to reach out to these people, that the straight liberal way of life may depend on it.
Welcome to our world.
We gay Americans have been wondering how to engage these people for years, and not just in an abstract, political-strategizing sort of way. For too many gay Americans, the homophobic wing of the "moral values" voting bloc includes mom and dad, the ones who disowned their child simply for being queer. These kids, and those of us who befriend them in their urban exile, have long known that a vast swath of red America would like nothing better than to push us first out of their territory, and then from our coastal enclaves straight into the sea. So the wounded contempt generated by the new map of divided America isn't new to us.

I can't ever imagine why.
He's one of the most vile and disgusting wastes of DNA that ever existed.
Just look up "Santorum" to see.
"If for no other reason than our own self-interest, liberal gays need to find these conservative gays and beat some sense into them."
This sounds like a hate crime in the making.
If for no other reason than our own self-interest, liberal gays need to find these conservative gays and beat some sense into them.
That might be interesting to see.
In an election where Republicans deliberately used homophobia to rally their base
Where, when, how? Seems to me the sKerry is the rat who raised the subject
You are right! Too funny! This Savage beast will never register beyond the low fuel line in the Intellectual Gas Thank of Life. His scope and understanding is so narrow that he could not possibly see or hear reality. If his speaking of parents disowning their gay children comes from personal experience, I'll bet he doesn't realize they rejected him because he is too far below their emotional reach. Not because he is gay.
Sniff... we've tried so hard to connect with mainstream America... snuffle... we've had such a hard time relating to the Christians in this country, even though they are stupid, inbred, uneducated, sister-marrying trailer-trash... sniff... we're so tired of being downtrodden... we're so afraid... why can't the Nazi Christians just treat us with the dignity we deserve...?
Dan Savage is a bad person. His dishonesty is so fundamental, his animosity toward conservatives so venomous, he simply must be driven by a completely nihilistic misanthropy. He hates mankind and thus is a danger to all.
If memory serves me correctly, wasn't Danny Boy the one who infiltrated Gary Bauer's campaign in 2000 and sneezed on everything (apparently thinking/hoping he could spread the flu)and then bragged about it in a column a couple of weeks later?
"Straight Liberal". Isn't that an oxymoron?
Yes, that was our Dan. He feels entitled to do absolutely anything he wants to other people. He is evil.
Savage, the would-be bio-terrorist (no, I'm not kidding, google what he tried to do to Gary Bauer)...
Anyway, a point that we should all stop and consider. Part of the left's whining and fear is just political gaming and poor sportsmenship.
However, part of it is projection. If the Democrats were in the same position today as the Republicans are, we could look forward to speech codes, more violations of the rights of pro-life activists, supression of the rightwing alternative press, and more along the same lines.
For too many gay Americans, the homophobic wing of the "moral values" voting bloc includes mom and dad
Homophobic is a misnomer just because you don't agree with homosexuality does not mean that we fear homos.
sorry we should = you.
Did you say, "Knob Licker?"
Now, now. Don't be nasty.
That's what he meant.....right?
It is also a waste of time, which bring us to the second lesson gay people have learned in dealing with America's homophobic "moral values" voters: A certain percentage of these religious fundamentalists simply cannot be swayed from their beliefs. There is no debate with them, no appeal to rationality or even common humanity. God has told them what's right, and they're not changing. The gay children of people like this generally have to cut off or greatly circumscribe contact with their parents in order to maintain their own dignity. It is a painful process, but ultimately it creates the reward fundamentalists deserve: estrangement from the open-minded world and a lonely death. The Democrats should do likewise: give up on the fundamentalists who simply won't change, and let them die estranged from our culture.
The fear, looking at the electoral map, is that we simply can't do this now because there seems to be more of them than us, meaning they're not dying off fast enough, or if they are, they're being rapidly replaced by new true believers.
