LGBT People Rage At Pete Buttigieg For Not Being Gay Enough

Gay representation has certainly come a long way from Patrick Stewart and Steven Weber in the classic 1995 gay film, “Jeffrey.” That same year, Patrick Swayze, John Leguizamo, and Wesley Snipes shocked audiences with their hilarious and stunningly relatable performances as urban drag queens taking a long road trip across middle America in “To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar.” And of course, who could forget Robin William’s heartfelt comedy performance in “The Birdcage”the following year? These movies were promises of societal acceptance as big-name, straight actors played proud gay characters for straight audiences who laughed, cheered, and empathized with them.

This insanity is a piece of the destructive forces that dems have created over time and now face. Dems rabble rouse. They create angst and then try to utilize it. The problem is, the dissatisfaction they raise is not a fair review or solvable. Some of the problems the dems themselves have created. The worst of it is that dems don't really seek solutions because they know they are illusionary and even if solutions are possible, WHAT would dems fundraise and run on the next time. They NEED perpetual grievance. The problem is, after decades of being given the smallest taste of a solution, all the dem identity groups are fed up. BO allowed and encouraged them to get more angry and uncontrolled than they had been. I suspect this was deliberate, part of the "fundamental transformation" of America. But things didn't go as expected. Not only did Hillary lose but Trump has been a powerful leader that has seriously undermined many liberal wins going back for several decades and threatens a seismic shift in the courts to undo the liberal tilt through a return to Constitutionalism. Many Dem identity groups are inflamed and uncontrollable. Others are realizing that Trump has delivered wins for them long promised but never delivered by dems. As each identity group asserts itself, it is demanding ALL things for itself, often in contrast to other identity groups. Rabble roused people are not encouraged to find common ground and build cooperation. This high tension environment is not surprising and is long overdue. The resulting whirlwind that will damage and destroy dems is also long overdue. Republicans have an opportunity to pick up some of the pieces. They also need to be ready for the unrest.

Let me see if I have this right: the writer is suggesting that being gay isn’t good enough unless you are gay and a person of color at the same time. Or, if not gay and “colored“, then you must be gay and oppressed in some other way. A cynic might be led to believe that there is really nothing that would make LGBTQWERTYs happy no matter what the rest of us did for them. Stalemate.

Nothing convinces me more that the American Psychiatric Association was wrong to declassify LGBT as a mental disorder than the idea that the wider culture has to accept, not just tolerate, homosexuality. Incrementalism Forever seems to be their creed, motto, and ritual. Given an inch, they want the whole mile, and more. Forever. In everything. As a child, I was told that the ladies or the gentlemen down the street who lived together just never found husbands or wives, and everyone referred to them as old maids and bachelors who lived together to save money and share chores. Always seemed plausible to me and I never questioned it until a dozen years or so when all this demented "you gotta accept, condone, and outright worship my diversity" craziness began in earnest. Oh how I wish as a culture we could just put the genie back into the bottle. There was a slim amount of time, not too long ago, where hostile intolerance was tempered but this in-your-face intersectionality had yet to begin.

#7, I agree with you. Being focused to the point of everything else on your sexual identity is just weird. When it totally defines who you are, you have gone off the track. Straight, gay, trans, or whatever should be tolerant towards people who do not agree with their lifestyle. Bullying people will only bring resistance and most people are sick of it. For the most part Americans are a tolerant bunch but when forced to accept and celebrate a lifestyle they don’t agree with, they will balk. I am sick to death of these lifestyles being pushed down my throat. The LGBT, etc., are out and proud, but for goodness sakes stop it with the “in your face” forced celebration of their lifestyle choices. It won’t change minds and will only be off putting for most.

Wow, I guess I'm just completely screwed up. I have never made it a point and mandate that the first and foremost that anyone and everyone must use as the basis of ANY interaction with me is that I have heterosexual sex with my wife of forty years. If I encounter any one in a professional environment, privately or publicly, I have never required and demanded my rights that you must first mentally go through my private bedroom activities with my wife in order to show that you truly respect me and my precious identity and keep that first and foremost, and at all times in my presence. Geez, all that closet heterosexuality on my part and all that heterophobia on everyone I've ever encountered, and I'm white too. What a shame and said testament to my own Holy Temple of Me.

So some are not black enough, some are not liberal enough, some aren't gay enough, and some are too male and too white, some don't embrace abortion and gun control enough, etc. And they say the Republican party is divisive. So what do they want from Pete? Better plans, better less government, a safer America? No they want him to wear a red curly wig, a tutu, stilettos, and makeup.

These people are just loons. There was a reason they hid in the closet for decades afraid to come out. It was because their life style was considered abnormal. It still is to a vast majority of people. It always surprised me that they were shocked by the attitudes of people when they made their sexual preference known, knowing that most people find that preference unhealthy and perverted. I personally don't give a crap what two consenting adults do in the privacy of their own home. It's their business. Just don't try and cram that life style down my throat and try to tell me it's normal. Two heterosexual people having sex in public or pawing all over each other is out of bounds as well. The term, "Get a room" comes to mind. If they want someone more gay to run for office, how about that guy from the show "My Lottery Dream Home" show. That guy is as flamboyant a gay as they get at times.

Choosing the word "gay" is the first clue that their lifestyle is anything but. They attempt to define male on male sex as a cool thing when it's anything but and they feel the need to make sure that we do not criticize something that is disgusting to most of us. I worked for a large publishing firm back when gays were still mostly in the closet. One guy, trying to sound hip and popular, would come in on Monday morning after a trip to some ski resort or beach and the first thing he bragged about was the new male sexual partners he met. Some people feigned interest but most just smirked and went about their work like, whatever dude. Today he would be demanding your attention and approval. Buttigieg's star, like Beto's is rapidly burning out. We thought Obama defiled the White House, this pansy would require a rebuild.

This was the initial method to get homosexuality (perversion) accepted. Make it funny by using well-known actors. They sold it to our kids in the gay nineties by making it funny. It is NOT funny! Then, they used the word “marriage” to become part of ab(normal) society and we kept quiet. Now, they’re offended about every dayum thing under the sun. We’re pretty sick of it! Go back into the closet. Life was much simpler.

"LGBT people seem perpetually enraged." CORRECTION: LIBERAL LGBT people seem perpetually enraged. As is the case for most minority groups, the liberal activists deign to speak for the entire group. ACT UP and other activists organizations do not speak for me, or for a large number of the more conservative and libertarian leaning members of the "community". Just like any other minority group, those that don't adhere to the liberal orthodoxy are belittled and maligned, Making matters worse for the Log Cabin LBGT members, we are just as often maligned and belittled by the very people that we are most politically aligned with. Thus, you wont hear many speaking out in public. We just vote quietly. First for Bush and now Trump.

Unfortunately, about 4.5% of the population that is LGBTQ-whatever is bullying the 95.5% of the US population that isn’t. The Founding Fathers established a constitutional representative democracy/federal republic in part to counteract tyranny by the majority. If alive today, they surely would be saddened that, after only 240+ years, we find ourselves in an era of tyranny by the minority.

This article and #2's comment remind me of Kurt Schlichter's novel People's Republic. In it, the coastal states have separated and become a "people's republic" controlled by the far left and the rest of the country operates under the Constitution. The book describes the leftist country's flag as one that looks similar to the gay flag, but it keeps changing as colors are added, removed, or rearranged as various aggrieved demographics compete for the government's favor.

Why the UFO story is far

The New York Times has made waves with a new report on sightings by U.S. Navy aviators of unidentified flying objects between 2014 and 2015. But the UFO issue, which follows a similar 2017 story, is far more interesting than the reporters let on. The U.S. government does not know what these UFOs actually are. The report focuses on witnesses of so-called "Tic Tacs," but other shapes and sizes of UFOs have also been credibly recorded by the U.S., British, Chinese, Russian, and other governments for the past 65 years. But what are these strange things? Most informed individuals I have talked to believe that the Tic Tac-like UFOs are unmanned vehicles

Catholic priests in California would be legally obligated to report to police sexual abuse confessions brought to them by fellow priests and other church employees if a bill quickly moving through the state legislature becomes law. Religious liberty advocates, including representatives of Catholic dioceses in California, challenge the legislation, saying it would invade a sacred space and direct priests to violate the “seal of confession.” “Sometimes the best intentions can lead to bad legislation,” Los Angeles Archbishop Jose Gomez said in a statement on California’s Senate Bill 360, which was approved by wide margins last week and now heads to the state Assembly.

It is tempting for normal people to ignore our president when he starts ranting about treason and corruption at the FBI. I understand the temptation. I’m the object of many of his rants, and even I try to ignore him. But we shouldn’t, because millions of good people believe what a president of the United States says. In normal times, that’s healthy. But not now, when the president is a liar who doesn’t care what damage he does to vital institutions. We must call out his lies that the FBI was corrupt and committed treason, that we spied on the Trump campaign and tried to defeat Donald Trump.

People are easily taken in by scientific, literary, financial and political hoaxes, particularly when they want to believe. When we search for “truth,” we tend to rely on authority and whether information supplied by the source has been accurate in the past. Serious newspapers, magazines, journals and electronic media sources historically took pride in getting the story right. Reputations could be destroyed and markets lost when a story was shown to be wrong because of a hoax or carelessness. Nothing illustrates the decline of serious journalism more than the fact that many of the major media, particularly CNN and MSNBC, have participated (and to some extent continue to participate)

Turns out, Robert Mueller is camera-shy. Since being named special counsel in the Russia investigation two years ago, Mueller has out-Garboed Garbo in his ability to maintain a public silence. Mostly, this has been a good thing — it is easier to take a prosecutor seriously when he or she avoids grandstanding on cable news and instead sticks to the work of taking down the bad guys. Mueller's ability to keep his lips zipped was especially striking in contrast with President Trump, whose constant commentary on the investigation sometimes provided his critics with fresh ammunition.

New Hampshire’s Sen. Jeanne Shaheen is among those incensed that Donald Trump has spiked plans to put Harriet Tubman’s likeness on the U.S. $20 bill. It would be in place of President Andrew Jackson who, like Shaheen, was a Democrat. Trump has said that the Tubman effort is just “pure political correctness.” Sort of like the political correctness Shaheen’s party has been engaged in recently to rename events (such as Jefferson-Jackson Day fundraisers) because those Democrats were slave owners.

The Obama White House used the most sensitive intrusive surveillance systems of the NSA to spy on Americans. A ruling by FISA Court Presiding Judge Rosemary Collyer finds that 85% of NSA database requests under FISA section 702 authority at the DOJ were illegal or noncompliant. Surveillance systems, including PRISM, spying on hundreds if not thousands of Americans. Including Donald Trump and those around him. Moreover, Collyer finds, that the Department of Justice showed an appalling “lack of institutional candor”.

“Time to pay the piper” is an appropriate phrase for what I hope lies ahead in Washington, D.C. (snip) Many of the protagonists are in the process of further disgracing themselves by attempting to evade accountability. Even the supposed venerable Robert Mueller has been soiled with his milquetoast report. Matters will get worse -- much worse! There are so many parts to this scandal that it is impossible to predict where it leads. Fortunately, Barr's love of country and the Justice Department and related institutions drove him from a comfy life in the private sector to becoming the second most maligned man in Washington.
