You know what, homo-haters?
Just go ahead and call us gay men and lesbians “faggot” or “queer” or “butt fucker” or “carpet muncher” or the like.
You know why?
Because at least that’s more honest about your feelings.
The homo-hating wingnuts have taken to using the word “homosexual” as a pejorative. They think the venomous ideas that they espouse sound less venomous if they use the word “homosexual” instead of one of the many homo-hating epithets that are available to them. Because, you know, these people are such great fucking “Christians,” and all that it takes to be a good “Christian” is to dress nice and to refrain from using vulgar language (and, of course, to breed like a good little het should!).
There is the Mormon assbite (I know, redundant…) who in a comment on my blog today dorkily called me “Mr. Homosexual Man.” (Really — how gay is that?)
And in a news story on how the California Supreme Court has agreed to listen to arguments on whether or not the unconstitutional Proposition 8 is constitutional, homo-bashing wingnut Randy Thomasson (whose pictures, interestingly, sure set off my gaydar) is quoted as having said:
“It’s unfortunate that the judges are giving time to the mushy, subjective arguments of homosexual activists who reject the clear reading of the constitution and the clear reading of Proposition 8. If the court disobeys the constitution by voiding Prop 8, it will ignite a voter revolt. It will also threaten the validity of all future constitutional amendments.”
Gee, there was no such “voter revolt” in California after the unconstitutional, immigrant-bashing Prop 187, which California voters passed in 1994, was struck down as unconstitutional by a federal court, and California state government continues along just fine although Prop 187 was shot down, as it should have been. I’m sure that the pro-Prop 187 fascists were forecasting cataclysm then, just as the pro-Prop 8 fascists are now.
But anyway, note Thomasson’s use of the term “homosexual activists.”
See, we “homosexuals” don’t call ourselves “homosexuals.” We call ourselves “gay” or “lesbian” or even “queer” or the like.
So the use of the coldly clinical term “homosexual” by those who hate us is meant as a pejorative.
So, homo-hating wingnuts, just get some fucking balls and say what you mean: call us queers or fags or pole smokers or AIDS fuckers or whatever.
Because, you see, having been oppressed by you our entire lives, we can take it, and always having been the comfortable oppressors, you cannot, you anti-American “Christo”fascist motherfuckers.
