The Week in Gay: George Rekers, Another Secretly Queer Homophobe
Unbelievable! Dr. George Rekers, a guy whose entire career was based on the notion that gay people don't have to be gay, is a closeted gay snorkeler. Surprise!
With each passing day the story continued to grow increasingly sordid. The Baptist minister, the the co-founder of the conservative Family Research Council, claimed that he needed help with his luggage and that he didn't know the young man was a whore. That feeble excuse died quickly when the profile pics of the rent boy were found along with the text of the ad the boy posted.
Among many other things, the boy is open to shaving, spanking, and vanilla. I don't know if that means he likes to bake or he enjoys the missionary position.
That revelation makes it kind of unlikely that Rekers didn't know that the boy was a hooker, don't you think? Plus, there is a pesky picture of Rekers hauling his luggage while the blonde 8-inch uncut wonder stands idly by (see above). Next up in excuse roulette, Rekers says he was trying to convert the prostitute -- just like Jesus would have done!
Yeah, that sounds good and all, Rekers, until the boy -- Jo-Vanni is his name -- described Rekers' favorite act: the "long stroke" -- a complicated caress across the penis, thigh, anus and over the butt cheeks, and over the river and through the woods. Christ on a cracker! Have you seen these two guys? Rekers' mustache and hairdo are fucking nightmares and Jo-Vanni looks like Kurt Cobain's younger brother. I don't want to think about anything that involves stroking between these two.
Now all involved parties are issuing statements and threatening to call attorneys and are secretly listening in on speakerphone conversations between Rekers and Jo-Vanni.
Besides the few unique details about the exposure of this old, conservative, asshole that got caught putting his tongue up the asshole of a young tart, this is beginning to sound routine. But this story is not routine. Not anymore.
Rekers was paid $87,000 by the state of Florida to testify as an expert witness in a trial defending the state's right to ban adoption by gay people. Let that sink in for a moment. Florida taxpayers defended their discriminatory law against gay people by hiring a man that had his anus massaged by a rented 20-year-old and provided testimony about how gay people are unfit to be parents.
This story exceeds any adulterous or closeted hypocrite story that has come out in the past 10 years. This time the government is openly colluding with these self-serving liars to rob queer people of the right to have a family.
If there really are any Christians left that believe one fucking word that comes from the mouth of a right-wing religious leader then they ought to be put in Guantanamo.
Elsewhere, the Human Rights Campaign continued to look like fools as they were caught in a lie about backing out of supporting a day lobbying for the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell in DC. Pam's got her eye on you, bitches!
Constance McMillen -- the Mississippi high school student that was robbed of her prom because she is gay -- came to San Francisco to attend an annual event with the National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR). She is supposedly going to transfer schools. Hasn't she graduated yet? We predict better times for her in college.
A trial began this week in federal court to challenge the constitutionality of (parts of) the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). The legal team on this trial is the same that helped win the right to same-sex marriage in Massachusetts years ago. The Obama Administration's Department of Justice defended DOMA, and presented bullshit arguments that said, "...federal recognition of same-sex marriage would confuse federal government programs..." Oh my! I never looked at a repeal of DOMA in those terms. Maybe the DOJ is right.
It would be confusing if the government recognized same-sex relationships. If gays were granted full citizenship we might not become wretched, messianic, johns sporting ridiculous hair pies and creating an entire class of expert witnesses that provide hateful bigoted testimony to support discriminatory legislation.
If DOMA were repealed, how would our government function?
Patrick Connors is an uppity fag from San Francisco and he would make a hostile witness.
