Queerty is better as a member
I contacted this guy by e-mail (the address is easy to Google), and I asked him if he understood what a homophobic jerk he was being for making such a post. He evidently did not. In fact, he replied: “I contacted 14 gay friends before I made the post, and 13 of them said they were not offended at all.” I of course apologized to him for thinking his post was scummy and homophobic (since 13 out of 14 Alabama gays approve!)
He also added: “if I win I will be more of an asset to homosexuals than any other Alabama congressman.” Wow! How will he ever get over a bar set so high?
But honestly, he does not think his post was unethical, offensive or homophobic. Unbelievable.
I have mixed feelings.
I despise the fact that the guy is trying to get people to not vote for his opponent because his opponent is gay.
However I LOVE the fact that a hypocritical anti-gay closet case may be getting exposed.
I think it is good for GOP closet cases like Aaron Shock to see that no matter how anti-gay they vote, this is what the party will eventually do to them.
When Michael Rogers outs a hypocritical gay republican, I usually applaud. But he does it as a last resort, only to the really hardcore ones, and he does it with at least some documentation.
This is different. This is low life, straight DINO politician tossing out unfounded (he calls is “hypothetical”) innuendo in order to disparage his political opponent.
This is a despicable, homophobic dog whistle in Alabama: “Vote for me, the STRAIGHT MAN rather than him, THE HOMOSEXUAL.”
