Yes, Texas has homophobes. So does New York, though.
Both Castro brothers have come out forcefully against Chan. San Antonio, like Houston, Austin, and El Paso, is a liberal city.
she needs to be recalled and NOW. the best thing about this is not only she is a nasty vile homophobe and bigot, she doesn't even know enough to hire a staff that WON'T leak such a disgusting conversation
Wait until we put her in a sling and fist her!
I think she will eventually say that it was a misunderstanding, that she "make joke." And then she will proceed to make pee-pee in your Coke.
r5, if you listen to the recording it goes on and on. It was not one comment. There is no way she can say she was misunderstood.
Someone remarked that she had been planning a run for mayor. Oops.
There is another thread on this on DL:
This is how most women feel about gays. Don't be fooled. Most "pro-gay" women are very homophobic but in a roundabout way. Straight men have always been much more supportive, believe it or not.
Is she married to a gay man?
I thought asians are supposed to be educated? Anyway--off with her head. She's a cunt.
[quote]Straight men have always been much more supportive, believe it or not.
I will never understand how minorities can behave like this. It really is quite illogical and confounding, especially when the same type of bigotry can be hurled against them.
The remarks Jeff Bazan made were by far worse that Elisa Chan's remarks. That guy is really, really ignorant, and a big mouth as well. I hope he gets his ass handed to him. Unfortunately, his boss is making excuses for him.
Please, listen to the tape, get pissed and start emailing.
R5 will now make pee-pee in r6 Coke. Hee hee.
R12, it seems that every group seems to put down other groups because , in that way, they are not at the bottom of the heap. By discriminating against others, they can male themselves feel better that someone is beneath them.
R8, you are full of shit. Your entire post is laughable from beginning to end. Straight men more supportive? Maybe in your fantasies. That has not been my experience in the locker rooms, dormitories, all-male workplaces and straight bars that I've been to...in the real world. Take your obsessive woman-hating elsewhere.
Funny, that's how I feel about Orientals.
And I feel about fags.
The only time san ntonio is discussed and its this crap...
I wish the press had paid more attention to Jeff Bazan's remarks. His ass needs to be fired, but I have a sick feeling he won't be. I couldn't believe the crap coming out of his loud ass mouth.
This recording really got to me for many different reasons.
Fantastic that this got leaked.
She's entitled to her opinion, of course, but hey, you cannot hold public office with that opinion. Tough luck for her.
Bye bye, honey!
TX Councilwoman Elisa Chan Has No Apologies For Homophobic Remarks
San Antonio Councilwoman Elisa Chan released the following statement today in response to last week's leaked recordings, in which she described gays as "disgusting," said homosexuality is a choice, and denounced gay adoption (among other things).
"The comments from the staff meeting on May 21st were and are my personal opinions and thoughts as guaranteed to me by the 1st amendment to the U.S. Constitution. It is unfortunate that a former member of my D9 Council team betrayed the trust of my staff members and me. I will fight, I will always fight for our freedom of speech, especially in a private setting."
Oh look, another Asian homophobe. Join the other 2 billion, cunt.
What a horrid person, and a public servant! Get her out, she has no business representing people.
Sure you have the right to say that shit, Chan, but we have every right to criticize you for it and to get you voted out of office.
[quote] Straight men have always been much more supportive, believe it or not.
Extreme masochists in the gay BDSM scene agree!
I've never liked her on Big Brother. I don't know what Maury sees in her.
Why is Elisa such a popular name with Asians?
There were a LOT of people saying a lot of disgusting things.
She shouldn't have said what she said, but it's not like she started the argument - it's like she was agreeing with the consensus in the room and adding her personal opinions to fit in.
Horrible person to be sure, but almost ALL of the speakers were uneducated fucks.
Because there can only be so many Helens, r30.
Gooks are obsessed with seeming white and conforming. They hate gays and that makes them feel more mainstream and white.
My god, the people on that recording are ignorant. Unreal.
Miss Ching Chong should go back to Asia and take her 18th century beliefs with her.
Christian missionaries haven't done the world a whole lot of good.
I hate the people on this thread stooping to her level and hurling Asian slurs. STFU. You're not helping.
R18 How do you feel about Oriental fags?
what a cunt! but people should know homophobes come in any size or any race, just like the racists also include gays like R7, R17, R33 and R36.
R39 lol, being gay doesn't mean you can't be a racist, you let those people talk long enough, they will show you who they really are, gay or not, they can't hide it.
