On gayness...or lack of

I'm really confused. By now most of you have read Greg Leticeq's post about Jeff Dion being gay with children. Not that it's any of Greg's damn business but he did stick his bigoted nose into this.

Republicans have a weird dynamic going with people who are not heterosexual. Most of the time, Repubicans want gays to remain in the closet when it suits their interests so they don't have to confront their fears or they think that it is really yucky. This applies to gays and lesbians who are subtle about it to gays who are loud and proud. See example below of loud and proud(Warning: Not James Young Friendly):

But now it looks like some Republicans (ahem...James Young) want you to be open about it if you're running for political office. I didn't know that someone's sexual preference was integral being an elected official. But I do know that being a moralist can make you look like a jackass.

Oh by the way, just in case I ever run for anything, I'm straight (although I do support gays and lesbians in their quest for equal rights). So now you moralists can rest easier in knowing there is one less gay person in this world.

You can donate to a fine, upstanding citizen in Jeff Dion here.
