    So apparently William Saletan is bothered by the widespread opinion that Marcus Bachmann is a closet homosexual. He seems to think that labeling Marcus as gay based on his less then masculine behavior and voice is wrong.

    http://www.slate.com/id/2299300/

    (Particularly calling out Stewart and Dan Savage (Savage Love Cast) )

    I can kind of see where he's coming from. But personally the biggest GAY red flag Marcus is throwing up is the fact that he runs a "pray the gay away" clinic.

    I mean honestly what strait guy spends his time trying to convince gay people not to be :confused:

    That's not saying much. Most gay men are gayer than me. There are straight men who are gayer than me. I'm a terrible example of a gay man. I don't fit nearly enough stereotypes.

    Sorry to disappoint you, but I could not even begin to pick out a suit for myself or anything like that. I'm strictly jeans and t-shirts. I hate button-downs, polos, and khakis- not to mention, I hate showtunes and especially Judy Garland.

    The woman has accomplished less than Sarah Palin. She has no chance at the nomination. Rick Perry will win the bat ***** vote in the long run.

    So just to condense, this is what we have going on here:
    1. Our hearts go out to the guy in the other thread who tried to give blood but was turned away for acting like a [stereotypical] homosexual. There's little direct evidence that he is, in fact, gay.
    2. Bachmann's husband is fair game because we hate Bachmann, he has a gay-away clinic (which we also hate) and might act like a homosexual. There's little direct evidence that he is, in fact gay.

    Carry on.

    If there's any evidence at all that he has engaged in gay sex, then yes, but you have to remember that it wasn't all that long ago that a similar man was adored by the grey-haired crowd.

    Besides, don't they have kids of their own? Or, should I say that she gave birth to children. I haven't seen a picture of them but do any look like Marcus?

    I think you might be a repressed, latent heterosexual. :rolleyes:

    They're the worst kind. The next thing you know, you'll be hitting on women. You'll br recruiting gays to be straight.

    OH. MY. GOD. :D

    Don't do it, Lee!!



    :p ;)

    It may be too late. :eek:

    He doesn't know how to dress, probably can't do interior decorating. and he DOESN"T LIKE JUDY GARLAND!

    Quick, we have to have an intervention.





    Edit: Oh, and BTW, who gives a s*** about that woman's husband. Bad enough to have to deal with her!

    I have no idea wether or not he is gay. But it would be damn funny if he was.

    That's what all of those self-hating, closeted straights say.

    Too bad, lee, you've been OUTED! :eek: :p

    Nope- I hate that stuff. I'm more of the jock type. I know- we're not supposed to be like that. ;)

    NOOOOOOOO! It's not true! :)
