Jenner comes out – as an LGBT-R!

brucejennerIn the recent Diane Sawyer interview with Bruce Jenner, he came out with a revelation that shocked a community. Not so much that he is a transgender, but that he (gasp) not only considers himself a conservative, but the r-word. Republican.

(Editorial note: Bruce Jenner will be referred to with the male pronoun in this article, because every article I’ve read on this says thats what you’re supposed to do until Bruce says he wants to be referred to as a woman. Beyond this explanation, don’t ask me any questions about it because I don’t have any other answer.)

Apparently, this has set the LGBT community on their backsides. Talk about your basic hypocrisy. Once he made this announcement, the LGBTers went crazy. Here’s a few samples from the twitter-verse. (click it to make it large, warning- profanity).

Nice, eh? All ready to show your overwhelming support and love, only to have it trumped by politics. Yes, you are an understanding, inclusive community indeed. Hypocritical bastards. Worse, he even said he “wasn’t gay.” This apparently made some LGBTers stick their hands down the garbage disposal in despair. That’s sad. Just a bunch of knuckleheaded, hypocritical, judgmental pricks after all. Welcome to the same club you’re always pointing your fingers at.

So, as Fran and I prepared to do our podcast the other night, and I revealed this bit of information, (about Jenner being transgender and a republican) and we both had a lot of questions for which we had no answer. But here’s what I found on the “Log Cabin Republicans” website. Log Cabin Republicans (LCR), by the way, are members of the LGBT community who are Republicans. Their website is linked below.

Before we get there, one of my own philosophies in politics is that nothing ever gets done because politicians only concentrate on what they disagree about. From there, the argument only goes in circles. I’ve always thought it would be better to start with “what do we agree about?” first, and go from there. Especially on difficult issues, let’s find out if there’s anything we agree about first, and then we can sort through our differences. I came about this philosophy years ago by reading Gerry Spence’s book “How to Argue and Win Every Time” which, despite its title, is a book that spends considerable time talking about understanding the other side of an issue. It’s about making “the argument” from a logical standpoint, not an emotional one. Once you know what you’re in alignment about, maybe you can start addressing the differences?

You know, maybe we could solve a problem or two. But that doesn’t get votes, doesn’t sell advertisement on political talk shows.

So here’s a quote I found in an article on the Log Cabin Republicans  website, reprinted from the Guardian, titled “Bruce Jenner: Transgender and Republican, is that a contradiction?”

The organization’s national executive director, Gregory Angelo said that the idea that transgender identify and conservatism were mutually exclusive was a myth put out through the media by the gay left.

“There’s a very diverse LGBT community out there that aligns itself with basic conservative principles” he said. Angelo added that the philosophy of the group was to engage fellow Republicans with 90% of politics in which they were in agreement, and then take on the more difficult 10%” “We remind the GOP of the roots of the party – in equality, in emancipation, suffrage and civil rights”

The 10% may be crucial and seemingly insurmountable, but from the LCR website, here, in part, is their “What We Believe” statement from their website:

We are loyal Republicans. We believe in limited government, strong national defense, free markets, low taxes, personal responsibility, and individual liberty. Log Cabin Republicans represents an important part of the American family-taxpaying, hard-working people who proudly believe in this nation’s greatness.

If I could find people who believe in low taxes, believe in actually paying their taxes, and believe in limited government, that’s a big start. I’ll take that over tax and spend bed-wetting liberals who think government can solve all your problems any day.

Anyways, you go, Bruce. What a shame your big coming out made so many LGBTers miserable.

By the way, Diane, we’re through.

Alphabet Soup For Everyone!

The GOP has invited the LGBT to CPAC. Holy spelling bee batman, that’s a lot of letters. But the group GOProud, a conservative group made of LGBTers, is going to speak at the conservative super bowl known as CPAC. What does all that mean. No idea. All I know is CPAC has been added to my C-Span viewing list.

 

 

 

 

The Tzar groovin on a US athlete who is openly gay. Ha! The irony of it all.

Murica EFF YEAH!

The US begins to assert its dominance at the winter Olympics in Sochi. Medaling in events they haven’t been competitive in for 60 years or more, the US team is peeing on Putin’s propaganda parade. The final straw, US men’s hockey squashed the Russian National team and it wasn’t even hard work let alone a miracle.

 

 

It just... I can't...  .....

It just… I can’t… …..

Zero G and I feel Fine!

John Glenn had no idea when he became the first American to orbit the earth that he’d be followed by a swimsuit model wearing an eye patch for a bikini. Kate Upton went through zero gravity for a photo shoot wearing a suit that proved unable to contain all her wonderfulness. I’m guessing that was the point.
