Meghan McCain On GOProud: 'Rogue Group' Who 'Exacerbate The Stereotype'

McCainGOProudMeghan McCain told Michelangelo Signorile exactly what she thinks of Republican gay group GOProud. They're a "rogue group that has publicly said very nasty things about me, very nasty things" and "the type of gay Republicans that I think exacerbate the stereotype," McCain told Signorile on his radio show.

The always outspoken McCain, daughter of former GOP presidential candidate John, went on: "Ann Coulter is who they had speak at one of their conventions and was touted as some kind of icon, a woman who uses gay slurs on television. In gay Republican circles, GOProud are not respected. They do not like me and I do not like them."

A member of the Log Cabin Republicans, McCain was also adamant that not all gay Republicans are self-loathing.  "They just believe in their country being run a certain way. And until I think the Democratic Party comes out and actually passes legislation, we’re not impressed."

I'm not impressed with Obama going on TV and saying, 'I have gay friends and I think they should get married.' That to me is the same thing as saying, 'I have black friends and they should get married but I’m not actually going to pass legislation that interracial marriage should happen.' If you put it in those terms it’s a completely different situation.

And the fact that people just seem to be okay with President Obama doing that, as far as I’m concerned, he’s not doing enough for the gay community and it's not enough to sway me. I'm glad it's okay with you guys but it's not enough for me. I know lots of gay people that are voting for Romney, because I think in America, people aren’t one-issue voters.

To many people, though, marriage is more than just a single issue: it's economic, philosophical, religious, romantic... The list goes on.


Meghan McCain is 'Strictly Dickly'

Meghan McCain tells Playboy she's not gay:

Meghan_mccainI’m not a lesbian, if that’s what you’re asking. I’d be the first person to tell the world I was gay. I’m not private about anything. I think you should live how you should live. But I’m strictly dickly. I can’t help it. I love sex and I love men.

Honey, you’re nobody unless you have a gay rumor about you. I’ve been hit on by women from time to time, and it might simplify my life if I were gay, but no. Rachel and Tila are just great people. For me, it’s an issue of civil rights. Who people want to sleep with and who they want to love should not have anything to do with government politics at all. And if you see me in a gay bar, it’s only because they play the best music and my gay friends like to dance. Gay guys love me. It’s the big boobs and blonde hair.


Cindy And Meghan McCain Appear In New NOH8 Photos

Cindy and Meghan McCain are upping the ante in their support for equal rights.

After first appearing individually in the NOH8 campaign two years ago, the mother and daughter duo sat for new shots, including one together, for activists Adam Bouska and Jeff Parshley's star-studded movement.

Above you see their dual shot, and their other new images can be seen over at the NOH8 campaign website. Will these latest photos persuade Eric Cantor's wife to join the cause? I seriously doubt it.

Meghan McCain: Don't Blame Me for My Dad's Position on DADT — Also, Blame Obama

Mccain_meghan

Meghan McCain broke her silence on "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" and her father's role as the most forceful advocate against repeal.

Wrote McCain on Twitter:

"I am a supporter of LGBT rights and am against DADT - I fight every day. Until you are the daughter of a republican senator - don't assume what I do and the stances I take are ever easy. I love my family and I love the gay community. There's a lot of anger being projected at me personally for my father's stance on DADT. I love my father very much and we disagree. Project your anger at politicians and the president you elected, because last time I checked - Obama isn't exactly advocating for LGBT rights or removing DADT."
