PFOX could teach PETA a thing or two about publicity whoredom. Just as PETA latched onto Jonny Weir’s fame as a way to speak out against fur, PFOX has accused rumored lesbian Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan of being “ex-gay,” primarily to keep talking about their homophobic campaign of curing away the gay. But get it right, PFOX: Kagan’s not ex-gay. At best, she’s in the glass closet.
The “glass closet” of course refers to people who might be out to their friends and family but are not “publicly” out to everyone else. Queen Latifah lives in the glass closet; PFOX chief Greg Quinlan doesn’t. No siree. Where ever he lives must have poor ventilation because he’s obviously been huffing his own fumes. Just look at his reasoning for calling Kagan a fellow ex-gay:
Could it be that Kagan is ex-gay? That would explain the White House insistence on Kagan’s heterosexuality and Kagan’s silence about her past sexual preference.
As an ex-gay myself, I sympathize with Kagan and the Obama administration. I have faced taunts, threats, and phone calls demanding that I be fired. There is no hate like that against the ex-gay community. And the President knows it.
When Obama was campaigning, gay activists demanded that he drop ex-gay singer Donnie McClurkin from a fundraising event. To his credit, Obama refused.
Too bad the current mayor of the District of Columbia, Adrian Fenty, lacks the courage to follow Obama’s example. After issuing a certificate of appreciation to Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays & Gays, Fenty bowed to angry gay lobbyists and apologized for having opposed “diversity.” But aren’t ex-gays part of diversity? Why can’t we have the same tolerance that gays enjoy?
Oh Greg, you leg-humping dog, you. No, ex-gays aren’t the same as gays. Most healthy-minded homos don’t treat homosexuality like it’s a disease or a mental disorder needing a cure. Crackpot theories like that put you “ex-gays” a stone’s throw away from other anti-gay quacks like George Rekers, gay exorcists, and murderous Ugandans. At least you’re not calling for the execution of gays who refuse to convert?
