Advocate’s candid interview with Dan Savage

Instead of rewriting the whole interview, I will just put the link here.

Savage talks about a lot of things from his new show on MTV called Savage U, Rick Santorum, to being glitter bombed by trans group.

If I wasn’t clear enough why I adore Dan Savage… here is why

Can’t adore/love this man enough. Dan Savage has this obsession with Rick Santorum the same way I had mine with Michele Bachmann. Now she is no more. I need a new hobby.

Dan is so funny but smart at the same time.

Listen to his interview with Kieth Olbermann and have a good chuckle.

Savage’s challenge to Cain…brilliant!!! Hypocrite media not so happy

Dear Herman,

If being gay is a choice, show us the proof. Choose it. Choose to be gay yourself. Show America how that’s done, Herman, show us how a man can choose to be gay. Suck my dick, Herman. Name the time and the place and I’ll bring my dick and a camera crew and you can suck me off and win the argument.

Very sincerely yours,

Dan Savage

I think its brilliant what Savage said. Although even to prove a point I would not touch Cain even with a 1000 ft pole let alone let him suck me off. If Savage is ready to let Cain do that to him, he is a way better person than I am, thats for sure. Not to mention it addresses Caines claim spot on. You can choose to be gay, then choose it for 10 mins and go and suck some guy off. Then you can go back to being straight.

And the media is ablaze about how it is crass and unthoughtful of Savage to say something like this for publicity stunt. Publicity stunt??? Really???

Savage further argues and is spot on again:

And then I’ll say this: when someone argues that being gay is a choice, he’s not just insulting gay people. (And ignoring the science of sexual orientation.) He’s insulting straight people. If homosexuality is a choice, then so is heterosexuality. Last night on CNN Herman Cain said that being straight is something that a straight person can take or leave. Herman Cain believes that heterosexuality is something a heterosexual can decide to walk away from, like a underwater house or a lousy meal. Straight people should get angry when they hear a straight person making this argument.

How true is that?

And as for him talking about the angry fuck of Michele Bachmann, She deserves worse than that. I loved Savage for that joke. Michele should be the butt of every joke for the next 5 years. Like Kathy Griffin said, Michele’s nelly self-loathing husband is her new target. And wishing a bunch of republican’s dead… hell I pray everyday that they would drop dead, all of them…Santoram, Cain, Bachmann, Perry each and everyone of them and I think a lot of others do too and if Savage just voiced what we all just think, he atleast has the balls to do so. I have no sympathy for anti-gay people. So for me, they can fall off the face of this earth anytime.

I wish there were more like Savage and less and none at all like the GOProud idiots. If LGBT community should be ashamed of someone, that should be GOProud. They make us look bad. Not Dan Savage.

I don’t know why I have a soft spot for Dan Savage. I think its because he thinks and speaks the same way as I do. The more he makes these type of comments, the more I love him. No apology, no regret, just what is true.

From Michale Bachmann, to Ann Coulter to Herman Cain, GOProud has backed up each and every one of these anti-gay politicians. Whereas Dan doesn’t sway with his support towards who looks good in the presidential campaign. To him someone who is anti-gay, is just that…anti-gay. His target stays the same irrespective of their political power. I love that of Savage. If the whole world turns against Savage, he should know there is one person who would always support him.

Politically Incorrect…a breath of fresh air

My over-riding point was Savage had really bad timing, and his comments/outbursts hurt #LGBT community.

This was tweeted by David Badash, the blogger of The New Civil Rights Movement.

I absolutely love his blogs and tweets. That’s why I follow him. Most of my blog posts come from his posts and a few others. As I am not a political or news junkie, his posts and tweets are my window to whats happening in the LGBT community in America and around the world. So I have a lot of respect for him and his work.

But yesterday’s tweet left me a little cold.

For those who are not sure who is being mentioned in  the above tweet: Dan Savage of  It Gets Better fame, and his little faux pas on Bill Maher‘s show on HBO.

I don’t see anything wrong in wearing your heart in your sleeves once in a while. We are all humans and there are certain things in life we are passionate about, in his case like a lot of us, LGBT issues. And what Michele Bachmann and her extreme right bible thumping politicos/psychos are teaching, spreading lies and trying to validate those with more lies, those who are taking the brunt, would snap once in a while. Why would it hurt the LGBT community.

Does David mean to say, the thought never crossed his mind, that if each and every one of them just drop dead one day, the world would be a better place? Its not like he literally means going out and gun them down.

Its like when we were kids and in school. The teacher we disliked the most, we will hope, he/she would fall and break a leg or just get sick so that he/she would not be able to come to school for a long time. Its just being human. One doesn’t have to be politically correct all the time.

We are already seeing what a very politically correct organization GOProud is doing. The so called conservative gay organization GOProud (click for better understanding)  and their shenanigans is something we do not need any more. Savage can be our voice and our thought unadulterated, uncensored.
