  1. Please!
    That vile excuse for a human being probably LOVES being compared to Anita Bryant.

  2. Just realized that this is probably the only thing this woman has in her life. And without this, what is she? What would she do? She does not seem happy, and this is probably the most attention she has ever received in her life. So, even if her heart has changed, she probably doesn;t want to go back to life outside the spotlite. The only thing waiting is probably some more comfort food.

  5. I know why we never see her husband, Mr. Srivistav.... she ate him.

  6. "I really wanted to see a pie."

    So did Maggie.

  7. Don't throw the cream pie in her face. She'd like the negative attention too much. Just give her an "Anita Bryant Cream Pie" that's properly boxed, along with a plate and a fork, and tell her that all she has in her life is hate. Bon appétit.

  9. I was going to object to Justin Werner's easy-target fat joke, but then I genuinely loled at Dastius' pie joke.

  10. At least she washed her hair with motor oil before attending the hearing. And if I looked like a pig, I wouldn't wear pink.

  11. She truly deserves AB Award! She must be proud.

  12. She's a sad woman. She raised her own as a single mother. She is dedicating her life to promoting anti-gay bigotry. She has a son in his twenties involved in NYC's musical theatre community.

    Whether he is in fact gay or straight is irrelevant: he knows all-too-well that the only reason his mother WOULD love and accept him is if he's a heterosexual.

    While that's emotionally devastating enough for an LGBT child, it's still an insult to any intelligent heterosexual child: the awareness that their mother loves them by default, simply because they're not gay.

    That's not love.

  13. @Little Kiwi: Who is her son? I didn't even know she had a son, let alone that he's involved in musical theatre in NYC.

  14. Honestly it's pointless to acknowledge her or attempt discourse. This kind of soft spoken rehearsed and meek approach plays right into her sick world view. She sees herself as a moral authority who lives in a spiritual plane above LGBT people. Watch her put her hand on him and patronize him in that "you poor/sick/lost homo/child/emotional cripple/ don't you know you're going to hell" way.
    She needs to be yelled at and picketed and we should be screaming from the top of our lungs that she is evil and un-american. I actually got mad at this video because it gave her a chance to speak calmly and with authority while he prattled on. We all need to get MAD.
    He got this close he should have spat in her fat evil lying face threw a Larry Kramer fit. I'm tired of trying to be palatable to these jesus freaks.

  15. She morally denounces us every f!@#ing day! I love how he kept his cool, and I hope she likes how it feels.

  16. Another missed opportunity by an amateur activist from the assimilationist camp. Instead of mumbling a bunch of lame, rehearsed rhetoric and handing her a hackneyed certificate an 8th grader could produce pithier, why can't we get ANYone to stage a real confrontation with her? Where's her bastard child? Who was the gay boy who shunned the fat girl in high school? Who is paying her salary? When is she getting divorced due to all the gay marriages? Someone please shut her up!

  17. Thank you Lavender Lounge, I was thinking the same thing. The "activist" was horrible in this video, and really didn't have much to say that wasn't just rhetoric. This disappointed me greatly, and made us all just look campy and one dimensional.

  18. I'd like to ask her - "Hey Mags....where's Anita Bryant today"? no-where................ the same place you'll be - all in due time, all in due time....!

  19. It's rather funny that all these anti-gay theocrats are people that most of the population wouldn't touch with a ten-foot pole. Maybe that is why they are voicing their get attention they so desire!!!!!

    Posted by: CB | Apr 15, 2011 6:08:03 PM

  20. Motor-oil-slicked mixing-bowl haircut, spray-on-tight pink and black ensemble ... MARY! She looks like a pink elephant (and no I don't drink). The thought that somebody put his peen in her vajayjay even ONCE is enough to make me lose my appetite, and we're having fried chicken and hush puppies tonight!

  21. CB said, "It's rather funny that all these anti-gay theocrats are people that most of the population wouldn't touch with a ten-foot pole."

    Oh, I dunno, CB ... I wouldn't mind some time along with a bare-assed Tony Perkins and a sturdy oak PADDLE .

  22. here is a woman who comments on everyones morales and has a bastard kid running around. don't know if there is any man in the picture. this woman is a cow.

  23. Here's a video for MS. FAT ASS HATEBIGOT herself...

    Posted by: Tre | Apr 16, 2011 2:55:35 AM

  24. The comments about this woman sadden me. Are her views hateful and discriminatory and damaging for every single gay person on Earth? YES. Without a doubt. NOM is an evil organization that needs to be stopped.

    But to attack her personally, particularly her looks and her weight, only suggests to those opposed to full equality that that's the substance of our debate. It's stooping to the hateful and stereotypical attacks that our opponents believe we rely on entirely to win support.

    We're going to win the fight for full equality based on reason, science and measured pushback against the anti-equality crowd.

    We're NOT going to attract more supporters to our side with the kind of antics seen in this video. How many degrees of separation are there between this video and videos of the Westboro Baptist Church holding up their vile signs at funerals?

  25. PS... NOM is already using this video to stir up their supporters on their Web site. NOT a smart tactic by getEqual!
