Predictably, over at Gay Patriot, the coming-out of NBA center Jason Collins is being leapt upon as an excuse to beat the living crap out of gay people. While, of course, the notion that gay conservatives are self-hating is dismissed, by this same crowd, as a Leftist plot. But okay, I’ll buy their claim that they don’t hate themselves. It’s every other gay person on the planet they evidently can’t stand.
I stopped being a sports fan because I got sick of athletes’ (overwhelmingly-heterosexual) sexuality flaunted in my face. As a Christian, I disapprove of the conduct of many athletes. I refuse to voluntarily pay for it.
Of course, as a taxpayer, I am still involuntarily paying for it. We the People are forced – literally at gunpoint – to fund professional and college sports. Not that the Gay Patriot crowd, whose undies are in a perpetual bunch about taxpayer funding for Big Bird, is going to utter a chirp against that.
As long as they serve as attack-dogs for homophobe ignoramuses, gay conservatives can jolly well expect to go on being called “self-hating.” What appears more likely, than that they hate themselves, is that they are driven by a deep compulsion to prove, to these ignoramuses, that they’re good people.
I think homophobic ignoramuses are vile and utterly disgusting excuses for humanity, and I hold them in absolute contempt. I don’t give a big, fat damn what they think of me. If they thought I was a godly person, or a patriotic American, there would be something very, very wrong with me. Their disapproval, I regard as a badge of honor.
I refuse to bend over for the statist Left when it wants me to, and I refuse to bend over for these fiends from Hell. Far-Right Talibangelicals are the worst people in this country, and I will fight them to my last breath. They want to destroy us – all of us – including the gay conservatives who slaver over them.
Where’s the outrage against heterosexual misconduct in sports? In response to the question, only crickets can be heard. But you very rare gay athletes who come out – demonstrating vastly more gumption than most of your critics – should just “shut up and play.”
Well, I’ve got a word for those who tell you to do that. Shut up, and go away. Better yet, take your selective outrage and go screw yourselves.
