    “Their identities [are] bigger than one thing,” but they still find that “one thing” to be big enough to organize around and throw events for, just not big enough to leave the party over. Talk about cognitive dissonance.

  2. endo says

    I’ve never heard “grubs” before used for gay Republicans until that Musto column. Love it!

  3. Rovex says

    Gay republicans are victims of the 2 party system. Its quite possible to be a fiscal conservative and even somewhat socially conservative and gay. The problem is that to actively support a party that hates your existence is very stupid and means you value money over your very being. Best option? Dont vote or donate at all.

  4. Syrax says

    I was about to say a vial with the Pope’s blood in a backpack was a little weird but then I reminded it’s the Vatican.

  5. Jonny says

    I too read the onion article and thought what a gross exaggeration. But many people at the convention are well aware that gay people are often targeted for violence, yet the RNC continues with the gay is evil, shameful, and correctable nonsense that fuels the violence.
    I much prefered the article defended regarding things that should never be said aloud will be repeated frequently at the convention.

    Glad to see that cow, Shirley Huntley, taken down. I hope they throw the book at her corrupt, fat @$$.

  8. jaragon says

    The GOP beating up the gay marine joke is both in bad taste and not funny- those Homocom people are idiots.

  9. "The Gay" says

    Even Methodist Priests are on our side.

    Religion isn’t our enemy.

    We need to show the people who support us, support.

  10. VDUFFORD says

    The republicans current make over of ‘Betty Crocker’ scares me! The fact the she claims she calms Mitt down is a joke! His energy comes of like a turtle trying to cross a highway at rush hour.She got to be over doing the Adderall when baking those Irish cookies.

  11. Opinionated says

    Of COURSE our identities are bigger than one thing but you silly Logs aren’t correlating that the “marriage” thing is indictive of a much larger NON-Conservative trend in that party. Just being a conservative doesn’t mean you should be part of the GOP. They are in more bedrooms than just ours people. Man they make my blood boil. Take a look at spending stats between this administration and the prior “conservative” administration and then tell me who acts more conservative these days.

  12. rick scatorum says

    I think Ann romney took a swipe at the gays, and the dnc platform, by saying she and mitt were in a REAL marriage

  13. Steven Harrell says

    @rick scatorum

    When you take her words in context, I don’t think she was refering to gay marriage.I do think she opened the door to a good rebutal, however: just because gay marriage isn’t “storybook” marriage, doesn’t mean it isn’t real marriage. After all, as Ann Romney said, real marriages- and the people who participate in them- aren’t perfect; they shouldn’t be dictated to us by some book of old stories.

  14. Blake says

    Why should anne romney or the republicans care if her speech included a shot at marriage equality.

    The party platform shows that they have no interest in getting the votes of sane “queer” individuals.

  15. Blake says

    The first time I saw The Onion article, I did not take note of its source and I did not have much trouble believing it was possible.

    I don’t really have anything bad to say about Katy Perry, she’s good at what she does (entertain people) and I like her energy, but does anyone else notice that her eyes have no expression whatsoever? It’s very strange and distracting.

  18. Nat says

    “”Their identities [are] bigger than one thing,” but they still find that “one thing” to be big enough to organize around and throw events for, just not big enough to leave the party over.”

    Pretty much, yes.

    I try to sympathize with gay Republicans, and I simply cannot. I regard myself as a liberal in the full sense: I base my values system on the primacy and autonomy of the individual. So I am sympathetic towards those in the LGBT community who’s values do not entirely sync with progressives.

    However, I cannot respect those who vote for a party that is so fundamentally against the personal rights that I view as sine qua non to personal freedom. There may come a day when it is acceptable for someone in the LGBT community to vote for the Republican Party, but it is not in 2012. Vote for the Democrats, vote for a third party that supports our rights, or don’t vote at all. But do not support a party that will block our rights at every given turn.
