Homophobes STILL Talking About The Thing They Don't Want "Shoved Down Their Throats"

It's been almost a week since the "kiss heard 'round the world" appeared on ESPN. That would be the 1.5 millisecond lip-lock Michael Sam planted on his boyfriend when he heard that he was drafted by the St. Louis Rams. By this time you'd think that most of America would have moved on, and in fact they have. The only people who are STILL talking about it are the ones who claim that the Gay "lifestyle" is being "shoved down their throats". This from Amy Kushnir, co-host of a local Texas TV station's version of "The View". (Courtesy: Huffington Post)

"When parents do not have a choice as to whether or not they want their children to see this, it's wrong," she said. "It's being pushed in faces.... I don't want to see that. I don't want to see cake in your face, kissing each other."

See the video below.

Parents don't have a choice? Excuse me, but do remote controls simply not work in Teabaggistan?

For people who are so grossed-out by two men kissing, conservatives seem to have an awful lot to say on the subject. Rick Santorum talks about gay sex more than most Gay men I know. People like Pete LaBarbera and Bryan Fischer give almost weekly dissertations on what Gays do, how they do it, and how disgusting it must be. And don't even get me started on crazy uncle Pat Robertson. These are like the folks who claim that they would never in their lives step foot into a gay bar, but talk endlessly about what they believe goes on inside one.

The truth is that even at a time when the LGTB community has taken great strides towards recognition and equality in America, roughly 99.44% of the imagery we see in entertainment, advertising, and society in general in this country is still geared toward heterosexuals. Yet conservatives constantly bitch, whine, and moan about being inundated by the Gay "lifestyle", and how they find it so disgusting. The obvious conclusion is that they must hang out in places where there's a lot of the "lifestyle" going on for them to see, which leads me to ask where these places are, and what's the cover charge.

Seriously, if faux-Christian homophobes are so sick of the so-called "gay agenda" being "shoved down their throats", maybe they should just close their mouths.
