Why Do They Need To Ask?

Ol' Broad is a conservative blogger who has an old, forwarded email up as a post, which is supposed to compare and contrast Democrats and Republicans. It's pretty much what you would expect, filled with the usual right wing paranoid hyperbole and general silliness, but one part stood out to me:
If a Republican is homosexual, he quietly leads his life.

If a Democrat is homosexual, he demands legislated respect.
I lost count, but how many anti-gay Republican politicians turned out to be gay lately? Perhaps they're quiet because they know it could cost them their jobs and their prestige with other Republicans.

But the bigger question is this: Why would any homosexual, Republican or Democrat, have to demand respect? What is wrong with us as a society that we still can't respect people without them having to fight for even a level playing field?


  1. why would she get all happy about someone who suffers in silence? maybe we should start a campaign to repeal the 19th amendment to see how she'd react?

  2. Don't remember doing a snoopy dance.

  3. Kate,

    I don't know that I'd want to see you do a happy dance. ;)
