So there have been a few posts/tweets/news pieces on how Gay Republicans are outraged and furious at the RNC's policy platform, details of which were released on Tuesday. Here's my response....
HOW CAN YOU BE SURPRISED?!
Firstly - to me the idea of a Gay Republican is a complete anathema. Its like an anti-Semitic Jew. Which of course leads one to the next synergistic thought of how hard must Gay Republicans hate themselves to ally with a party that has always - currently does - and probably will for decades HATE with a fervor the ENTIRE LGBT community, regardless of if they choose to vote Republican.
Secondly - Dear Gay Republicans. The Republicans only added the inclusion of electricity to their policy jacket over the last 20 years. What on EARTH are you thinking when you decry that they don't like you? Roe v Wade was decided in 1973 - 43 years ago - and they STILL hate women for their right to choose. Women are considered second class citizens by Republicans and you think you're going to get equal footing when vagina loving middle class White Men don't think much of women???
Thirdly - How broken and damaged must you be to ally with a Political Party that believes YOU and YOUR PARTNER/HUSBAND are an affront to their beliefs? Are you secretly a member of Opus Dei who flagellates themselves in the dark of night whilst crying as you realize you must be the abomination that they say you are?
Fourth and by no means least - WAKE. UP. It is time to tell your Daddy "I'm a big boy now" and stand on you OWN two feet and make adult decisions like the rest of us do. Be informed. Be an individual. Be a man. Be resolute. Be all of these things as they will make you both whole and healthy. Currently, you appear as emotional cripples with Daddy issues so large they make the Statue of Liberty resemble Cindy Brady.
There are times when I look at people and I genuinely wonder if they were dropped on the head as children, because it is the ONLY reason I can come up with why people would suit up with the Haters.
That's my 2 Cents Worth.
