“A little gay window dressing.”

Dan Savage calls out GOProud:

Ann Coulter was invited by GOProud to their event, where she said intensely bigoted things. She’s against marriage equality; GOProud describes marriage equality as a “states’ rights issue,” which is what interracial marriage once was. GOProud isn’t a pro-gay rights organization; they’re an organization of gay quislings and useful idiots that help to window-dress the Republican Party which is really still rabidly anti-gay to its core. It’s a little window dressing — a little gay window dressing — that allows them to appeal to moderates, perhaps, and independents as being less bigoted than the Republican Party in its current iteration actually is. … The GOP in Washington, the people who control the levers of power, are still rabidly anti-gay.

  1. Why any sane, thinking, compassionate person would give Ann Coulter the time of day let alone invite her to speak at an event is beyond me. It’s amazing to me how so many people seem to make their money and a lot of it simply by doing what they do best — being a bigoted and irrational asshole.

    GOProud’s political alignment does seem a contradiction. But then I know gay men who are also devout Mormons and will avidly defend the organization that dehumanizes them. Go figure.
