    You got your President, now it’s time to keep hate alive and go after Republicans. Gay life can only survive with a constant trickle of hate. So here’s a little dose… This is great for the “It Get’s Better” crowd, That’s a crock no matter who attaches themselves to it. And have you seen Lady Gaga’s butt lately? I remember when she was God around here.

    Neither clever nor helpful. Stereotyping gays, any gays, is not my cup of tea. The quickest way for us to get our rights is to reach out to the GOP and let them put this behind them as quickly as possible. It will do us no good with the middle to mock and gloat.
    Is it not so?

    and as long as GOP-loving gays remain the semi-closeted cowards like the ones who barely-grace us with their anonymous appearances on here every day your hoped-for change and revolution will never come.

    so suck it. in the dark. with the lights off.

    stop being pissed off at the fact that liberals support you in a way your own GOP-voting families don’t.

    p.s. hilarious.

    You’re suggesting we all hold hands with the same Republican party whose electoral platform – still valid not even 2 weeks ago – was to add an amendment to the US Constitution saying that all gay people are and forever will be second class citizens, without the same civil rights equal to other citizens, and sing Kumbaya, and let bygones be bygones?

    Good one guys. Just for a minute there, I thought you were serious.

    @ANTBNCY

    Yes, of course; the entire Republican Party is monolithic. Change is instant. Let’s all hold a grudge and never reach out to those who may perhaps be on the side of civil rights, because other Republicans are not. This is the way to speed our cause along.
    Mercy.

    Nully, not Our problem, as liberals.

    if your fellow republicans dont’ yet believe you deserve Equality it’s because you’re setting a piss-poor example.

    my non-gay liberal family and friends already support the LGBT Communities. it’s not my fault your family doesn’t.

    No pacifier Ben, and no “poor” either. I don’t look at FOX, but this site is guaranteed to really nauseate every time. I find myself hating gays now. Secretly hoping the Supreme Court does their supreme job. As Sinead said, “Fight the Real Ememy!”

    I couldn’t tell if it was funny, because I wouldn’t watch enough of it to find out. It violated one of my pet-peeves about low-cost film-making: Crappy Sound Quality. I’ll put up with Gay Republicans before I’ll put up with that.

    The hook is promising, but the production values were not working. The writing, slow pacing, acting all were sub par.
    Probably all it needs is a good writer and director to be a smash hit.

    The only problem with this is that it was neither funny or witty. Im definitely a liberal, and would definitely have voted for Obama, but this is just lame. I think Luke is right about the stereotyping. Its so blatant as to be ridiculous. The acting was pretty atrocious too.

    I thought this skit was hilarious! Especially that Betsy character. I mean what Republican woman who is involved with gay rights would donate money to an organization that discriminates against gays? And “in the hope that they’ll slowly change their minds over a long period of time?” Could you imagine her posting something like this on Towleroad?……….no, I didn’t think so!

  13. Mary says

    Nullnaught, it’s good to see you back on Towleroad.

    I don’t think skits like this are intended for mainstream audiences. I assumed this was aimed at the gay community in general. We all need some humor in our lives. If somethink like this were on network TV then it would be different. Just my humble opinion. It’s very easy to see why Log Cabiners (most of whom are gay) would be viewed as sellouts by more liberal gays.

    But I’m glad to see that you want the gay community to reach out to Republicans instead of shunning them. In general, this is the strategy I advocate.

    Lighten up Gary- not going after Gay Republicans due to being gay- but due to the mean-spirited selfish assumptions they share with straight republicans. And the fact that they will vote against their ‘single issue’ in order to get the wider agenda of tax cuts for the rich and gutting government.

    The vouchers reminded me of visiting The Happy Tap in Windsor, ON. Since the Canadians had dispensed with their dollar bills, they had vouchers available. Of course, they preferred my US currency because of the contemporary exchage rate;-)

    @Mary: Were you being serious about Betsy and her contributions? I sure hope not, because that’s precisely the policy of LCR and GOProud.

  18. Mary says

    Actually, Diogenes, I was poking fun at myself. I’m always advising gay people to aim for slow,long-term change, so I now see how my suggestions must come across to people! Although I think that the real goal of GOProud and LCR is to simply give gays a place in the party so that when the general culture pretty much forces BOTH parties to be pro-gay in terms of policy, gays won’t be completely foreign to the Republcan coalition. Neither LCR nor GOProud has enough clout to influence Republican policy at this time. So they take whatever (and I do mean whatever) little crumbs the party hands out. It is perfectly natural for gay Democrats/liberals to see them as Uncle Toms. If they were aiming to be for the Republicans what gay Democrats are for the Democrats they’ve failed miserably, so in that case the4 charge would be accurate.
