As I Tweeted last night:
This religionist anti-gay anti-sex anti-woman stand-your-ground& hunt black young men BULLSHIT is turning me into REVOLUTIONARY GAY GUEVARA.
These christianist crackpots are wearing on my last nerve. I continue to be furious. And depressed. And wonder, now, if the two are related, and, too, if it is not brought on by constant exposure to the lunatic fringe of religionist bigots gone wild. And, too, further exacerbated by this attitude of expectations that I will (or anyone should) display backward gratitude for being granted permission to be human by the heterosexist-white-male ruling class-power structure.
Fuck that noise. I’m not thanking ANYONE for their condescending to decline to encode my 2nd class citizenry into law. Fuck that and fuck anyone hiding their hate behind religious freedom screeds. And fuck anyone who for one second imagines they can or have the right to belittle me with laws. In the words of Erin Gloria Ryan from Twitter: “I’m about as impressed with Jan Brewer vetoing the gay discrimination bill as I am with every adult who refrains from punching babies.”
Ex-fucking-actly. Of course, between this and the Texas ruling saying not allowing gays to marry is unconstitutional, the god-goons are sliming out in force; a few examples:
“This ruling by unelected federal Judge Orlando Garcia is the most egregious form of judicial activism of our generation. This hollow victory and clear attack on morality and the rule of law will not stand in Texas. The fight for marriage is far from over. This is just the beginning of an epic battle that the Texas people will ultimately win in name of the only true and lawful definition of marriage: one man, one woman.” – Texas Values president Jonathan Saenz, via press release.
And those are just two of the milder examples. rush limbaugh went bozo-crazy-bongo-batshit about it, all bellicose blustering with the rad-iculous right’s new spin connoting human rights and decency with the agenda of the “jackbooted homofascist lobby” and its “bullying” ways – AND, their newest bold-faced-lying harangue topic, that Matthew Shepard’s death was NOT a hate crime and he brought it on himself (READ IT HERE) – this is a whole NEW level of the slut-shaming they usually reserve for – you know – the women they hate (that would be ALL women). Wow. Poor haters. Such a hard time lately finding ways to make your hate-homophobia-sexism-classism-racism look reasonable. Why, just in the past few weeks we’ve had Mr. Sam and Mr. Collins happily and joyously buttfucking and cocksucking their way into pro sports locker rooms; and anti-gay-hate-legislation in Texas ruled unconstitutional; and now tea
baggingpartying queen, brewer, vetoes Arizona-hate-bill.
Take heart, haters. Apparently you can still legally hunt young black men in Florida. Maybe you should all move there and enthrone cruz as your ruler and nugent as your court jester.
I’m done being polite about these nutballs. I am done listening to it be termed a “victory” when the fact that everyone deserves basic human rights and dignity is acknowledged. I am done pretending that these so-called christians are entitled to hate because they cite a fictional tome as basis, and EVEN THEN, selectively cite it in selective and expurgated translation without honest contextual analysis. I’ve said it before and I will say it again, your bible was no more written by god than was The Wizard of Oz written by Dorothy; and that Jesus you are so fond of using as excuse for your hate is no more a real person than the Wicked Witch of the West. Now, look, as far as I am concerned, you are perfectly free to base YOUR life and behavior on any novel you choose; but you don’t get to LEGISLATE it, or excuse your shoddy behavior by citing it. You don’t see me saying that only people who wear blue gingham dresses get to fully enjoy citizenship, do you? NO. So, fuck you and get over yourselves and shut the fuck up and move to Florida.
