"Methinks the Lady Doth Protest Too Much"

Not to rain on Gay Pride (Chicago's weather will be taking care of that any time now), but here's Mike (I Don't Heart) Huckabee from earlier this morning defending his claim that gay relationships illicit an "ick factor."

A couple of quick questions before I go put on all white (with no underwear) to stand and watch the parade in the rain:

A) Since the U.S. is a republic, not a democracy, why are laws being passed by ballot initiative? Oh, that's right. So that the majority can deny the minority their equal rights.

B) Huckabee reads the articles in those gay rags put out by The Edge?!? Does he "read" the Undergear catalog too?

Happy Pride, everyone.

While we enjoy today, take time to remember that it ain't over.

And also remember that, for the most part, it has been the drag queens, nellie fags and bull dykes who have pushed this movement forward from it's birth at Stonewall till this very day, so if anyone says anything about anyone flaunting it, camping it or bearing their breasts, tell them I said to fuck off and get in the back of the line. 'Nuff said.

What the hell is Huckabee talking about?

Happy Pride... I hope you had fun!

That's "elicit," hon, not "illicit."

And the movement didn't start at Stonewall, y'know. You should go back at least to Mattachine and One in the late 1940s (though Harry Hay was a nelly fag, at least), if not to Magnus "Auntie Magnesia" Hirschfeld in Germany a century ago.

Instead of 'icky", perhaps he meant "sticky"?

Gay stuff can get pretty sticky.
