Well, thereâ€™s ONE good thing to say about Sullivanâ€™s roaring hard on for…er endorsement of Obamaâ€”we guess heâ€™s stopped believing in the â€œblacks are genetically stupidâ€ fake science of Richard Herrnstein and Charles Murray [â€œThe Bell Curveâ€] whose work he promoted when he was editor of â€œThe New Republic.â€ But then, technically speaking, Obama is only half-black so maybe thatâ€™s why Andy Pandy is willing to give HIM a pass. Or is it just a matter of “Anybody But Hillaryâ€”EVEN A HALF BLACK GUY”?
As for the credibility and integrity of anything heâ€™s written about the Clintons [OR Obama]â€”the HIV+ Mr. Sullivan, aka â€œRawMuscleGlutes,” was exposed years ago by Michelangelo Signorile for trolling online for bareback sex â€œbi-scenes, one-on-ones, three-ways, groups, parties, orgies and gang bangs” but no “fats and fems” at the same time he was demonizing gay men for their â€libidinal pathology” AND…..drum roll……Pres. Clinton for his “sexual recklessness.â€ Attempting to distract from the fact that the issue was not sexual freedom of choice but his own hypocrisy, Sullivan, of course, denounced Signorile for violating his â€œprivacyâ€ even though, through his publications, he had made the private acts of so many others, including a President of the United States, HIS business, the subject of his own self-righteous sermonizingâ€”whenever, that is, RawMuscleGlutes took a break from sorting through responses to his personal ad.
Privileged male Sullivan would overturn â€œRoe v. Wadeâ€ and has also pontificated at length AGAINST job protections bills like ENDA as creating unfair “special rights”â€”â€œthe push for gay employment rights is unconvincing and whiny. …gay men and lesbians suffer no discernible communal economic deprivation and already operate at the highest levels of society.”
And he was a screeching, demagogic drum major for the invasion of Iraq. â€œSullivan’s Taliban style of argument and his rigid habit of separating the world into the blessed and the damned turns American politics into a free-fire zone where any deviation from his view of the national program is immediately leveled.â€ – Salon
Most revelatory of many examples of Sullivanâ€™s solipsism was his effectively declaring that â€œAIDS is over!â€ twelve years agoâ€”more specifically the “end of the plague”â€”we assume, because wealthy white gay men in the US have access to anti-retrovirals unlike those apparently irrelevant tens of millions of Murray’s “genetically inferior” blacks.
