A Woman's Private Sexual Practices Are Her Own Business... Until She Angers the Gay Lobby

I don't know if I should be linking this.

But it's out there now, so my not-linking it ain't gonna consign it to oblivion.

Brutish gay-enforcer Michelangelo Signorile -- who of course yammered on forever about Clinton's purported right to play "Human Humidor " without judicial interference -- decides that a Democratic Senator has had sexual privacy for too long:

Mikulski's position on same-sex marriage isn't the only thing in her closet: The sexual orientation of the forever-unmarried 67-year-old has been an open secret for many years. But Mikulski has apparently always worried about what her working-class Democratic base in Maryland might think of her sexual orientation, making her irrationally petrified of ever discussing it (except to make heterosexual allusions).

These fears have made Mikulski less than a champion of gay rights, perhaps lest anyone think she might be gay herself.

What could provoke such an outing? Why, the fact that she isn't opposing the Federal Marriage Amendment with quite the level of zeal that Signoreli would like.

After calling her a "lesbian" in a public scolding, Mikey delights:

The exchange got some media coverage, and it likely traumatized Mikulski in a similar but opposite way that Linda Chavez had traumatized her: Her voting record on gay rights miraculously improved. (It's sad that it takes such actions and inducement of fear to motivate such individuals, but again, that's how denial works.)

Eh. It might work to threaten to out gays unless they vote the way conservatives like. Not sure if you'd be in favor of that.

But he's rather late to the outing ball, anyway:

"The FMA is the legislative equivalent of a nuclear bomb," wrote DC activist John Aravosis in the Washington Blade last week, defending outing members of Congress and their staffers. "Facing such an unprecedented threat, it is time we considered an unprecedented response."

I don't like Mikulski, and I'll admit that a part of me -- not a nice part -- ain't exactly broken up to see an arch-liberal turned upon by her outright leftist onetime supporters.

But this is nasty shit, and this puts the lie to the left's pious claims to be steadfast in support of sexual privacy. They want their own sexual privacy respected; however, they want the sexual practices of their enemies -- both real and feverishly imagined -- exposed for all the world's snickering and derision.

This is blackmail, pure and simple. Add "blackmail" to the list of crimes that committed leftists believe themselves justified committing should their precious consciences so dictate.
