Wingnuts latest beef: Gay mannequins
Nope, this empty headed wooden man is not Ann Coulter after being bitchslapped by the 9/11 Widows... No, instead it is what we parents have to fear the most when shopping with our children: Gay Mannequins. Sigh... It is almost tedious to discuss their obvious dementia anymore. But alas, we must (via TruthDig): "Macy’s dept store in Boston removed from its window a duo of mannequins (one wearing a gay pride flag in a display listing Boston's Gay Pride Events for the wk) after MassResistance (the conservative group formerly named Article 8 Alliance which has also campaigned against sex educ and gay-themed books in public schools), complained the display was offensive." Sweet Baby Jesus. Mannequins are now gay & offensive to these people? Isn't it amazing that they always KNOW what is gay in the world? Well, it IS in step w/these GOP freaks: 1) Sen Inhofe (R-OK) whipped out a chart on the Senate floor Tues to illustrate a pt he apparently thought was worth making: "As you see here, and I think this is maybe the most important prop we'll have during the entire debate, my wife and I have been married 47 yrs. We have 20 kids & grandkids. I'm really proud to say that in the recorded history of our family, we've never had a divorce or any kind of homosexual relationship." I hope GOP "ooohs and aaahs" were quickly followed by GOP applause-- in awe of that very proud moment. I guess Inhofe had secretly videotaped the sex lives of EVERY single one of his relatives thru the ages to make that bold statement, huh? AND this: 2) The constitutional amendment banning gay marriage got just 49 votes this morning, far short of the two-thirds majority it needed, but that didn't stop Sen David Vitter (R-LA) from defending the GOP's efforts by saying: "I don't believe there's any issue that's more important than this one." Just wondering if any of Vitter's displaced constituents in NOLA, or, say, the 57 LA families who have lost loved ones in Iraq, might see that just a little differently. Sigh... I seriously need to start drinking heavily.
