So, there's this Senator from Idaho. Maybe you've heard about him? I've had a ton of email messages asking me when I'll blog about it. I did a segment on McIntire yesterday. And I've spoken at length with all the important homos in my life about the whole situation. Here's my quick summary:
First, hypocrite with a capital HYP. No question. Closeted gay man actively oppresses us. Not cool.
Second, police “sting” = entrapment. I'm so not okay with arresting people for their thoughts or intentions. Toe tapping and bag placement do not constitute a violation of the law, regardless of their intent. My understanding is that the police officer played along, using established signals to communicate his interest. A friend explained to me that it is physically impossible for the scenario to have gone down without the police officer doing some fancy footwork of his own.
Third, the wingnuts are going to eject Craig faster than Mark Foley can compose an email. He'll resign so a R appointee can take the “incumbent advantage” in the upcoming election. You heard it here first.
Finally, the hysteria around men having sex in the bathroom is pathetic. Good grief, people, get a grip. The predator in the bathroom is not a gay man looking to make a connection with another adult. My friend explained to me in great detail how much effort the individuals take to have some modicum of privacy and not expose their sexual activities to other people.
