So, WTF!? We have strongly anti-gay politicians who are actually homosexual. Isn’t that like being anti-vegetarian but allergic to meat?
Well. Simple. Many homosexual or bisexual men are afraid that their sexual preference will loose them their political position. And what better way to say ” I’m Straight!” then to persecute gays.
George Rekers helped to start an anti-gay lobby during the 1980’s. He wrote several pamphlets such as ‘Growing Up Straight’ and ‘What Families Should Know About Homosexuality’. After having a surgery however, he hired someone to ‘lift his luggage’. The man he hired ‘Lucian’ turned out to be a gay male prostitute from rentboy.com. Rekers admitted to sex with Lucian several months after being caught.
Richard Curtis was an anti-gay advocate who voted against domestic partnership for gays, and opposed a bill prohibiting discrimination against gays.Curtis offered a male prostitute $1,000 to have sexual intercourse with him. The prostitute, Cody Castanga, went public with pictures of Curtis wearing a red negligee after finding he was to be paid only $200. Curtis later resigned from office.
Other examples include Troy King, a vocal anti-gay and anti-sex toy advocate, prominent in his field was caught by his wife, having sex with a local homecoming king. Glenn Murphy Jr. ‘straight family values advovocate’ who was caught ‘raping’ a fellow congressman. And Bruce Barclay Right Wing Republican Commissioner, accused of rape, instead found with hundreds of video tapes documenting his gay sexual relations.
Will this ever stop? Well, If and only if the entirety of the voting public goes liberal. Will that happen? Probably the same time hell freezes over. So. Depending on how anti-gay you are, either simply vote for the people doing the things you like. Or do some investigation first to be sure they aren’t secretly gay…
