Gay-faced anti-gay former House Speaker Lee Chatfield, who is gay, named CEO of Southwest Michigan First

... and is a gay-faced anti-gay gay.


Southwest Michigan First, a Kalamazoo-based economic development organization, has named former House Speaker Lee Chatfield as CEO. According to Crain’s Detroit Business, Chatfield confirmed he would be moving to Kalamazoo. The former representative from Levering, who was term-limited after six years in the state House, is no friend to the LGBTQ community.

“Today’s announcement was a surprise to people who care about equality,” said Erin Knott, executive director of Equality Michigan in a statement. “The former Speaker, having the worst equality record in the state House, does not share the values of Kalamazoo County or Southwest Michigan.”

Knott has served on the Kalamazoo City Commission since 2015.

“Lee Chatfield’s record includes comparing LGBTQ individuals to ‘swingers, adulterers, polygamists and pedophiles,’” Knott’s statement continued. “Furthermore, he has stated numerous times that discrimination does not exist, and that ‘if people today in Michigan were being discriminated against on a daily basis because of their sexual orientation, it would be statewide news.’”

It should be noted that LGBTQ people in Michigan do face discrimination on a daily basis regardless of whether it makes statewide news, and regardless of whether that news reaches Chatfield, who represented rural northern Michigan’s 107th State House District.

I'm from Michigan & I've never heard any gay rumors. To his credit, even though he shouldn't have agreed to meet with Trump in the White House in December, he didn't succumb to Trump's demands.

He looks inbred. Because he's Republican.

by Anonymousreply 202/15/2021

Wow. A 32-year-old was term limited out of office.

Anyway, he has 5 kids and he’s been in Republican politics since his early 20s, so he checks a lot of the closet case boxes. But there’s no proof.

32 years old with 5 god...

Or maybe, just maybe, he's straight.

Newsflash: straight guys can be homophobic assholes.

Well, apparently he has a master's degree in "public policy analysis" from Liberty U...and worked a stint as "athletic director and government teacher" at North Michigan Christian Academy. So, a scholar, too...

I repeatedly called him gay to counter his anti-gay lies.

Never heard of him before today.

He does resemble a cookie-sniffer, if not a paroled rapey porn actor.

Any trace of his gayness was probably beaten out of him by his dad.

Anyone this anti-gay has a gay obession.

R8 Hate against others is learned. Most likely his anti-gay stance is from a religious family and his religious schooling.

by Anonymousreply 902/15/2021

He actually was kind of a good government legislator. Rare among Republicans now.

A true breeder extraordinaire

“Cookie-sniffer.” Oh my god, please not that again.

The guy is hot, he can discriminate against me any day!

by Anonymousreply 1202/15/2021

Not particularly gay faced, whatever that is, but definitely ferret faced.

by Anonymousreply 1302/15/2021

He is not gay. OP is a homophobe for using gay as an insult.

by Anonymousreply 1402/15/2021

I guess now we have a gal in Kalamazoo.

We don't want him.

He's very fertile.

by Anonymousreply 18Last Monday at 12:50 PM

He doesn't ping at all. Five kids? OP, get a life.

by Anonymousreply 19Last Monday at 12:52 PM

He'd be a good hate-fuck, like the closeted frat boys I banged in college.

R19, fuck off. Other DLers' tastes and speculations range from repulsive to absurd.

R13 if you don’t know, then how would you know?

Average White Guy ™️

We need to get rid of the notion that all homophobes are secretly gay. Many straight men are conditioned to hate gay people.

by Anonymousreply 23Last Monday at 1:32 PM

He probably had sex with the poolboy and Falwell's wife at the Fountainbleu.

by Anonymousreply 24Last Monday at 1:45 PM

R23 is correct. Gay men look pathetic claiming everyone who is Antigay is secretly gay.
