Vid: Gay Marriage Protesters Getting Ugly

No, they don't represent the whole of the movement. But they do represent a perpetually seething, decidedly countercultural aspect of the Gay Left that frankly gives the rest of us the shivering douchechills and sometimes makes us want to affirmatively just stick a thumb in their eyes (in political terms).

Not a rational response, that last part. But that is an effect of this ACT-UP type hatred.

Link Fixed.

Still Don't Represent Me [Gabe]: One of the anklebiters had this observation in comments:

I noticed Gabriel Malor with his previous thread said these individuals didn't "represent" him with their "tantrum" and all, but I didn't see a whole lot of, "These vicious shitheads belong behind bars."

It's a stupid accusation, but a fairly common one. For the record, I denounce these people and hope that they are prosecuted to the full extent of the law. I shouldn't have to say it, but as is often the case, it's easy to assume that a minority group is fairly represented by their loudest elements even though we know that is almost never the case. And, of course, you shouldn't assume that the Prop 8 protesters represent all gays or all gay marriage supporters (which includes a lot of straight people).

And you certainly shouldn't have expected me to support the protesters since I already wrote about how pointless, unhelpful, and objectionable they are. It should go without saying that I'm not a supporter of harassment. I'd rather not have to write about this gay shit every time a gay person says or does something evil in public, okay?

I also preemptively denounce anyone who kicks puppies, my neighbor who parks in the handicapped space without a tag, and Richard Simmons. If there's anything else completely obvious you would like me to denounce just so we can get it out of the way, feel free to let me know.

Yeah... [ace] Dumb and stridently so as usual, Christoph.

How Gabe was to know to precognitively denounce something that hadn't happened yet is beyond me.
