What's the matter? Didn't have anything stupid to say, so you doubled-down on Thomas's comment?

I would never vote for a gay politician. If I didn't like his or her opponent I wouldn't vote for either of them. These people are our lawmakers. Gay politicians often have an agenda. No thanks. Not interested.

Look in the mirror.

Anyone who opposes equal rights for gays & lesbians, including the right of same-sex couples to marry.

Not voting for someone just because they're gay?

Yep, that's what makes you anti-gay.

Btw, straight politicians often have an agenda as well.

Who cares! If a candidate announces that he likes to have sex with tree stumps, is that supposed to impress me too. Anyone who goes out and publicly blathers about their sexual perversions needs to be punched in the head.

So every heterosexual who blathers on about being married or having kids needs to be "punched in the head"?

Good to know...

No, read again. I said "sexual perversion". A guy blathering about his wife and kids is what the rest of society calls normal...

I'd call it just another sexual perversion. So I get to punch them, right?

Well now; sugar.....gay guys are born with the same sexual orientation your MOTHER was born with; attracted to men
.
Ask HER if attraction to men is 'perverted' and see what kind of 'blather' she dishes out
.
She'll put your sorry homophobic a$$ to bed without supper

Umm, in case you missed it, it's normal for a girl to be attracted to a guy, therefore it's not a perversion.

And who said I was homophobic? You know nothing about me.

You can find out by taking a plethysmograph test

.
Once homophobia is diagnosed; you will not need an anti-gay marriage law to keep yourself from marrying another man
.
Nobody would have you

Not trying to be a contrarian, but there are gay drag queens (check out "RuPaul's Drag Race") and such things as fag hags. Not to mention there are some gay men (designers and stylists among them) who spend way more time with women than they do with men.
Of course, it raises an age-old feminist question whether the gay men who tell women what to wear and how to behave, or mimic their perceived behavior, are honoring women or demeaning them.
But, honey, being a drag queen isn't a sexual fetish. It's comedy.

Ummm, in case you missed it, it's normal for some guys to be attracted to guys as well, therefore it's not a perversion.

You obviously have an unnatural fear of treating gays & lesbians as equal citizens. That by definition makes you a homophobe.
