Dan Choi Proposes to Harry Reid: The Week in Gay
|Romance blooms in the desert -- betwen Dan Choi and Harry Reid. Uh-huh.|
Dan Choi gave his ring to Harry Reid.
Choi was officially discharged from the military just prior to the conference and appeared in Las Vegas not as a blogger, per se, but as a member of GetEqual, an LGBT activist group that has been involved in acts of civil disobedience this year. Both Sen. Harry Reid, the senate majority leader, and Speaker of the House Rep. Nancy Pelosi addressed the gathering. Choi presented Reid with his West Point ring as a reminder of the military career that was ruined because of the ongoing Don't Ask Don't Tell policy that prevents gays from serving openly.

While in Las Vegas, Choi managed to get himself (and seven others) arrested again. "What happens in Vegas," you know. GetEqual staged a rather spectacular scene blocking traffic on the Strip while holding a banner that called out Reid for his inaction on the Employment Non-Discrimination Act. Earlier this week the group threw a tantrum at the Capitol building in D.C. After a few weeks out of the spotlight, GetEqual seems to be back for action -- even if San Francisco's member of the group is vacationing on the continent.
Why not spend some time in fabulous Las Vegas, Kip? On Tuesday, The Independent promoted a fabulous LGBT weekend in Vegas courtesy of the MGM Mirage. Who would turn down the opportunity to spend time partying in the desert in the middle of summer? And let's face it, the Nevada voters passed (with 70 percent in favor) an anti-gay amendment to their constitution but that doesn't mean they are anti-gay MONEY. Don't confuse their contempt for your relationships with their love for your money.
Contempt? Did I hear contempt? The National Organization for Marriage traditional marriage tour stopped in Indianapolis this week and drew out some of the local poison. One fellow named Larry Adams held a sign calling for gays to be hanged because that's what Jesus would do. Larry confessed in an interview included in the above link that he used to crave the feel of balls on his chin, but since he read the Bible he just can't get enough pussy.
Many older women also find themselves in Larry's predicament in regard to pussy. Elizabeth Hasselbeck explained this week on The View that older men are going after younger women and that explains why older women are all lesbians. Barbara Walters, whose third marriage ended in divorce in 1992 was either nodding with agreement -- or just nodding off.
Finally, I leave you with a homework assignment. Please craft arguments in support of the right for Jason Allen Hamilton to be legally married (and potentialy divorced), as many times as he wants, even if he's in prison. Please explain how this conforms to the ideals of "traditional marriage." Do the same for Maurice Lyons.
Hamilton was arrested in Defuniak Springs, Florida after choking his pregnant girlfriend, and Lyons was busted in Cleveland, Ohio after stabbing his wife to death.
I'm sure there is a very good explanation about why those two shit bags are allowed to be legally married. If you get stuck, ask Elizabeth Hasselbeck for help. She's full of useful information.
Patrick Connors is an uppity fag who hopes he never sets foot in a place called Defuniak Springs (let alone Cleveland).
