David Joseph DeGrio, chairman of Minnesota Stonewall Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party thinks that we should all stop picking on Michelle Bachmann’s husband for being effeminate because it makes us look like bullies.
I don’t view saying that someone’s gay is a negative thing, but I believe that perceived sexuality was being used as an attack on Marcus Bachmann, and I find it unacceptable to use perceived sexuality as an attack on anybody. The message I see it sending is a bit hypocritical because we’re advocating for policies in schools to stop this exact thing, saying someone’s effeminate or someone speaks with a high-pitched voice or even [saying] someone is gay because this a gay characteristic.”
DeGiro would have a point IF the attacks on Bachman were unprovoked. But perhaps DeGiro needs a reminder of these words which came from Marcus Bachmann’s mouth when describing us. “BARBARIANS. SICK, and DISEASED.”
Marcus Bachmann’s effeminacy in and of itself is not what’s funny. It’s funny that he’s an effeminate, very obviously gay man who’s married to a deranged anti-gay congresswoman, and who went on a rant about how gays are barbarians for not resisting those sinful urges he seems to think everyone has. Until Marcus Barchmann stops his attempt to “cure” homosexuals, and stops preaching Christianist torture on innocent people, then he has to expect retaliatory remarks.
The waaaay too UBER -PC LGBT leaders, especially those who live in the same state and do absolutely nothing to retaliate against Bachmann like DeGiro, should keep to their ” moral high road” to themselves before they lead us to a pacifist orgy of extinction.
If anyone should NOT be the head of a group with the name “Stonewall” in it , its obviously David Joseph DeGrio
