In light of prominent anti-gay activist Roy Ashburn recently being caught walking out of a gay bar, and proving once again that conservative voters have little to no Gaydar, here’s a list of 10 conservative anti-gay activists who turned out to be gay themselves.
The list includes the stories of 10 of the worst anti-gay gays.
One thing, though. How come there are no women? Surely there must be some juicy conservative lesbian scandals out there? Or are the lesbian daughters of conservative politicians able to be out and free? Because it seemed — a few years ago anyway — to be a credible conservative politician, you need a lesbian daughter, or a pregnant teen at least.
Oh, and in John McCain’s case, a wife and daughter who openly advocate for gay rights. That’ll do nicely.
The list in short:
- Troy King
- Jim West
- Richard Curtis
- Bruce Barclay
- Roy Ashburn
- Larry Craig
- Ed Schrock
- Robert Allen
- Ted Haggard
- Mark Foley
We’re keeping our eyes peeled for that anti-lesbian lesbian scandal.
Another guest post. This time, from a young Irish woman who has just started her coming out process.
I only came out very recently to those who need to know. Lots of people still don’t know.
last summer, I told one of my closest friends, who happened to just have come out himself, that I thought I might like girls. I was insisting that I was bi-curious. He was shocked but he was great about it, even more so when I told him a few months later that I was pretty sure I was a lesbian.
In that time I had also told two of my other best friends. The difference in their reactions was amazing. One was great about it and said that nothing had changed. The other one was unsure. She kept telling me that I just had no self confidence, and that sooner or later I would meet a man. Since then she has slowly come around to the fact that I am actually gay.
I told my father after he kept pressing me to know where I’d been one weekend. I’d told him I was going to Dublin and it wasn’t a lie, but he knew something else was going on. All that I had planned to do was go to a gay club, nothing criminal-like. My father is pretending I never told him, so we don’t speak about it. My brother doesn’t talk about it either, but we’re alike in many ways so he doesn’t really care who I date.
