Florida Governor Charlie Crist Prepared To Come Out, In Favor Of Gay Rights

Florida closet case  Governor Charlie Crist, who was elected governor as a Republican, left the GOP after it became clear he could not win his party’s nomination for Senate has decided to come out of the closet, sort to speak and announce sweeping support for many gay rights issues.

RawStory.com ihas received documents that state that Crist’s will  announce vocal support for gay couples, including hospital visitation, inheritance and adoption rights; opposition to the ban on gays serving in the military; support for anti-discrimination laws and appropriations for HIV and AIDS programs. Crist who does not support same sex marriage; does not seem to revise that position.

Crist was part of the focus of the 2009 documentary “Outrage,” which ran in theaters and on HBO, asserted that Crist was himself gay: in the film, two anonymous subjects claimed to have had sex with the governor, and a former girlfriend was quoted as saying, “Call me in ten years and I’ll tell you a story.  Crist is currently married; his ex-wife of his first marriage now lives with her lesbian partner.

“It’s great to hear a sitting governor take such a strong stand on equality issues,” Nadine Smith, Director of Equality Florida, told RawStory.com by telephone Sunday night. “This is the first time in Florida’s history that a sitting governor has taken these public positions on a wide range of LGBT equality issues. It marks a shift in the debate in our state.”

“For us, having the governor of Florida articulate so clearly stands that are in support of equality on a wide range of issues is a new day,” Smith added.

I truly hope that Nadine Smith and the LGBT Community of Florida doesn;t fall for this.  Crist is obviously “sucking up” He has for years opposed gay rights while at the same time staying deeply in the closet.  He is a self loathing hypocrite plain and simple. Now that he is trailing in the polls and  there is political gain to be had, he is jumping on the gay bandwagon.

It’s amazingly naive of Crist to think the GLBT community of Florida will embrace him now.  I just hope that the LGBT Community is not amazingly naive and does.

STR8 Man Sues Suzie’s Adult Superstore Claiming Reverse Discrimination

Oh this is going to be good…….

A 30-year-old straight man says he was fired for not being gay, or gay enough, while working at Suzie’sAdult SuperStore in Sacramento, California.

A plumber by trade, Michael Beaton says he couldn’t find work in this tough economy, so he took the job at Suzie’s.  “I was a security guard, cleaned up the premises, and did a little loss prevention work,” he said.  (Sounds more like a PORTER to me.)

Beaton says a manager recommended he apply for a sales job. “I did the test. I did really good on the test, and a couple of months had gone by, and then I had gone back to the manager and asked him what was the deal. I was told flat out that I wasn’t the ‘gay boy’ they were looking for; they were looking for someone who was more gay,” explained Beaton.

Beaton also accused Suzie’s, and its parent company Janra Enterprises, of forcing him to clean areas of the building that he says were set up for people to have sex. In Sacramento County, sex inside a sex store is illegal.

“It was unsanitary, and too, I was coming to believe it was illegal,” Beaton said. (DUH?)

So lets get this straight……Breeder boy couldn’t get a job so he took a Security/Maintance job at Suzie’s Adult SuperStore.  He worked there for a few months stopping dildo shoplifters and mopping goo out of the arcade,  took a test to be a sales person, waited some more, more shoplifetrs and more goo, asked about the job and “wasn’t gay enough. waited 3 more months worth of dildo’s and goo and THEN decided he was discriminated against and that what went on in the arcade was illeagle.

IF Beaton was discriminated against thats wrong, pure and simple.  But this also reeks of sour grapes and an oppurtunistic way for this plumber to make a quick buck.
