  1. "Just do what I did - i let my only son know just how much he'd disappoint me if he admits to being gay. I remind him that I raised him as a single mother, and that without me he'd have nothing. i remind him about how i still support his choice to be in musical theatre, and i don't blame him for that choice since he didnt' have a father figure around. and then i remind him that i hate gay people so much that i've dedicated my entire life to ensuring that they're denied equality, and i demonize them publicly for my own financial gain. and then i say pass the yams, because i LOVE yams. and then i say, "Son, you know momma could have aborted you but chose not to, right? You know that because I had you I had to give up some of my own dreams. You know that if you were gay you'd be ruining everything momma worked so far for, right son?" And then he feels real guilty, and I know I've bought myself at least 5 more years of his silence. and that's what being a real Christian is about. by the way, my real last name is Srivastev, but I don't use it because it sounds too 'foreign' and i want people to think im' just a good old american girl. and i don't believe gluttony is a sin. and i like ham better thank turkey ,if you're offering"

    thanks, maggie.

  2. So, Maggie has adopted the asymmetrical haircut Rosie O'Donnell had when she first came out as a lesbian. Welcome to 2002.

  3. Who would listen to this woman? These talking points are ridiculous and contrary what she'd like us to believe, she's a hater and bigot. You can say it all you want Mags, refute away. You are what you are and you chose to be that. Your CHOSEN LIFESTYLE is that of a hateful bigot. Happy Turkey Day and get stuffed!

  7. You'd never get close to MY table, but if you did, and your offered you oh-so-civil talking points, here would be my response:

  8. What a sad cow.

  9. Ok, so Maggie wants us to be tolerant as she sits on the 'moral high ground.' We are to tolerate her as she sits up there and denigrates us? Hyprocrite. (and kudos to her--I assume--gay hairdresser!!)

  10. So we should tolerate intolerance? The get to be intolerant, but we should be tolerant of them? She is so full of stupid it's hard to look at her.

  11. Oops, that should have read "They get to be..."

  12. Little Kiwi - You are sorely missed here in NYC. Come back soon and we can have a Sound of Music party.

  13. What Maggie's saying is so simple really -- discrimination isn't discriminatory.

    See? Makes perfect sense.

  14. Nothing says pro-family than a right-winger bringing up same-sex marriage at the dinner table just to make sure their views are known. How pathetic.

  15. If Maggie comes to your Thanksgiving Dinner just pass her the truffles to shut her up until the pie gets served. She'll be so busy oinking and snorting she won't have time to lecture!

  16. As much as I hate watching her and hate that anyone gives her a platform, I am glad the obvious circular logic that proves her arguments have no validity, is so obviously stated.

  17. Well that's fascinating, Maggie. I see youre still depending on a straight hairstylist. Tsk tsk...

  18. The one thing Maggie should avoid at the Thanksgiving gathering is second helpings.

  19. LOL! These right-wing nutjobs really do use the word "elite" as if it's a derogatory term!

  20. To quote someone else - If you are intolerant and hateful, or feel yourself in some way superior to others you should just learn to leave those feelings alone inside your head where there is clearly a lot of unused space where they can roam free. Please don't spread your nescient opinions and vitriolic babble around. It is inconsiderate of you to display your idiocy. I mean, the fact is that we just think you're an idiot when you say ignorant, racist, hateful, superior, or ridiculous things.

  21. "It's ok to treat different things differently.." isn't that what they did to the blacks.. and women before that? How'd that work out?

    Posted by: deryk | Nov 23, 2011 11:51:21 AM

  22. I wish I had time to elaborate...but I'm busy making stuffing and pie for my husband and two great kids & five grandkids today...with my husband of 27 years. I don't think the "issue"
    of marriage equality will be a part of Thanksgiving conversation...we're too busy being thankful for each other!!!
    We love being together on's so "familiar".

  23. At 0:27 she says "gravies" (plural). Just how many gravies does Maggot eat at one meal? She probably needs a fleet of gravy boats...a gravy navy.

  24. I researched this womans income once. She makes over 200k at NOM alone. Then there are the speaking engagement fees. Im sure all of her traveling expenses are paid and not to mention a LARGE discretionary spending account for dinners with clients.
    She also gets stipends from several other "non-think tanks".
    Yeah shes a pig alright. Shes been feeding at the thanksgiving troff of bigotry for a long time. Shes a catholic and divorced. Shes a glutton which is a sin. Shes a liar and a cheat which are also sins. and most of all shes a self righteous pig.

  25. I'm sorry, I couldn't get past the 1986 Lesbian hairdo. Wait, I had some male friends with that hair too!
