Republican Gay Men

What do we think of them?

by Anonymousreply 11609/19/2013

They`re better than other gay men.

by Anonymousreply 109/09/2013

If they are openly gay and do not support Republican candidates who harm gay people in anyway through legislature, and they really seek out Republican candidates who are pro-gay in every way, then I have no opinion on them. If they support Republicans with anti-gay platforms, then I think there is a breakdown somewhere with their character.

by Anonymousreply 209/09/2013

I hate them all.

Most I have met are self-loathing, less than attractive, Daddy-issued, small penised, assholes who always say they are tops because they think it may be less gay. Just my opinion.

We think they're selfish, self-absorbed, ignorant idiots who vote against their own ideas, most likely due to daddy-issues.

They're either racist, misogynist, sociopathic, or some combination of the above.

All the problems in this country... from religious persecution to economic stupidity... come from the Republican Party.

Any gay man supporting them is an idiot, brainwashed and damaged. Or just plain evil.

The GOP is slowly moving to be more gay friendly. When they finally are (which I predict will be in about 10-15 years), expect a lot of gay men to start voting Republican. If you think most rich white gay men give a shit about poor people, you're delusional. The only thing that keeps them voting Democrat are the homophobic elements of the Republican party.

[quote]they really seek out Republican candidates who are pro-gay in every way

Who does that possibly describe? In 99.99% of elections, the republican candidate is anti-marriage equality. Only in the bluest of blue states will you find pro-gay republicans. Chris Christie is a moderate Republican in a blue state and even he's against marriage equality. You might find a fiscally conservative, socially liberal Republican in a local race in an urban and/or highly-educated district, but they're rare, and will change their stripes the second their star begins rising towards the national stage.

In answer to OP's question: I think they are usually some combination of dumb, delusional, self-loathing, homophobic, greedy, materialistic and sociopathic. I think anyone who values lower taxes over their own right to live openly without fear of reprisal is mentally ill, or worse.

Tell us, in what ways do "Black Christians" have any real impact on the Democratic Party platform, which already includes support for equal marriage and reproductive rights?

The poster I responded to is a freeper troll trying to paint both parties with the same broad strokes. "Religious freaks" probably exist in every political party, but the only major one they've hijacked in the US is the Republican Party, as anyone with a brain can tell. I can't think of a single plank or position in the Democratic Party that bears any influence from any particular religion, unless you consider secular humanism a religion.

R14, you have your head so far up your ass you can't see shit.

They are EVIL for a whole host of reasons that go beyond their blatant racism, misogyny, homophobia, & xenophobia. That go beyond their constant fear-mongering, war-mongering, hypocrisy, and blatant lies. That go beyond their persecution of poor people, contempt for the sick and unemployed, and their systemic corruption of the system. There's also their vile environmental policies that foul our air and water and food, for example. Or their contempt for Constitutional voting rights. Or their desire to subjugate working people into nothing more than 'wage-slaves' that prop up the 1% in their uber-wealth.

Jesus, how clueless do you have to be to think that it's only the "anti-gay thing" that prevents gay people with brains from voting Republican?

Bravo, R34! That was so well said!

by Anonymousreply 3509/09/2013

[quote]many gay men couldn't tell you any substantive differences between the two parties anyway.

The Republican Party serves corporate interests and the interests of wealthy people. They suppress minority voters and appeal mostly to white social conservatives, and have gerrymandered districts to ensure legislative majorities that don't reflect the actual populations they serve. They've duped many poor white people into voting against their own interests by preying on fears that revolve around race, violence, old-time religion and (perceived) sexual immorality. Their overriding agenda appears to be making the rich get richer while screwing the middle class and leaving the poor to die.

The Democratic Party is the party of labor and working people. They encourage voting among all and seek to make the electoral process easier and more direct. They work to unite people across race and economic lines to foster a society that works for us all. They support personal rights and freedoms like reproductive rights, marriage equality and fair access to healthcare and public education. Their overriding agenda appears to be obtaining social justice and equality for all of us, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation or economic status.

In other words, R37, you just got schooled. It will be OK. I'm so happy R34/36 did the schooling so well. People really need to read what he/she wrote.

I have never voted Republican and doubt I ever will. Still, demonizing Republicans or any political opponents is really childish. As someone who supports the Green Party on most issues, I find that, overall, there is barely a hairsbreadth of a difference between most of the policies and practices of the two mainstream parties.

The two parties are very different (R36 sums it up nicely) though the American people, in their wisdom, never let either one of them get enough power to get much done. The Republicans believe compromise is treason so there is no middle ground.

It can be hot when you get a repressed one, get him alone, and show him what he's been missing. They get freaky when they finally let loose. Run for the hills afterward though, before they start hating themselves again. It gets bad for a while afterwards. You can come around again once they've had time to build up more repressed horniness.

R43, the vast majority of gay republicans I know of are racist (most admittedly so, some blatantly racist but who deny it at every turn, thinking they're "normal" and "just stating facts"). Many are deeply misogynist. Almost all have some sort of daddy issues (Daddy was a right-wing republican, and they're basically trying to buy his love by voting Republican and saying "See Daddy? I'm not like THOSE fags! LOVE ME!!")

Any remaining ones are just selfish, self-absorbed, short-sighted greedy tools who love money more than they love any human being, let alone themselves.

This is a fantasy that Gay Republicans must tell themselves to help them live with their horrible political choices.

[quote]Gays, on average, make more money than other communities.

A myth that was disproved years ago, but even so, gay men ALSO have more empathy for others, and thus don't make all their decisions based on "how can I screw other people out of what they have and make myself as rich as possible".

It doesn't ALL come from religion.

But modern religion and patriarchal attitudes are closely entwined, R71. Don't act like one doesn't come from the other and vice-versa. Yes, there are liberal churches, but they aren't the ones pulling strings in the GOP. Old time, fire-and-brimstone religions, even recast with smiling, gym-built pastors in mega-churches full of college-educated church-goers, are what fuel the GOP today. Religion is a huge part of it, especially reactionary forms of religion.

I'm not sure the hate existed before Christianity etc.... There were ancient ( Pre-colonial) societies that allowed same-sex marriages. Same sex relations were perceived as normal sexual behavior.

I agree totally with your last paragraph, R75. I just find it hilarious that one can claim to be a (literal) disinterested 3rd party, but spend the rest of the thread posting the most ridiculously partisan claptrap.

I know actual Green Party members. Most of them acknowledge that the Democrats are, by far, the lesser of two evils, but an "evil" they can't abide nonetheless. I disagree with them but as a liberal I understand its a matter of degrees more than ideology. None of them claim the parties are the same across the board. They might argue that the Democrats have become just as corporatist as the Republicans, but none would claim the two parties are identical. Even the Greens admit the Democrats are far better on social issues.

The only morons I EVER hear parroting the "both parties are THE SAME" canard are libertarians. They love to repeat that lie and they repeat it often. Then they head right to the voting booth and vote straight Republican.

Conservatives: opposed banning slavery, opposed breaking away from the British, opposed giving women the right to vote, opposed giving black people civil rights, opposed gay marriage, opposed social security (the single most successful and effective government program ever), and supported the Iraq War.

Wrong on ALL counts.

The last time Republicans had all three branches of government, the economy crashed hard and our reputation on the world stage was all but destroyed. The Bush administration was a cluster-fuck of EPIC proportions. It also saw one of the largest transfers of wealth from the working poor and middle class to the ultra rich ever.

There is not one single issue that the Republican party is "better" than the Democratic party on. Period.

Would you describe yourself as a Christian, God-fearing, church-going and all that?

I am trying to understand how a religious person comes to believe that Jesus was a conservative.

I know you have not said so per se, but by implication a conservative, Republican, Christian would have to make that assumption or not be following the teachings and wisdom of your Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, yes?
