>A confused gay republican

>I’ve never understood gay Republicans. Actually, I’ve never understood Republicans, but let’s stick to the gays.

GOProud is a group of Gay conservatives that have split the CPAC group wide open, and for that I commend them.

But they seem to be self loathing, or hypocritical, or something, as one of their members revealed at CPAC this weekend.

Matt Hissey, in an interview with Ebone Bell of Metro Weekly (at 1:39 in the video):

“I don’t really like gay people that much. Gay people frustrate me, the stereotypical gay people, it frustrates me…someone who puts on a total act. I understand that some guys are feminine, which is fine. But some guys, at some point, are normal, straight-acting, whatever and the next minute they’re jumping up and down. It just frustrates me. The whole conservative thing is just be yourself, be an individual and just don’t be someone you’re not. If someone does or does not accept you, that’s fine but don’t change who you are to look different to others.”

A quick question, are you being yourself Matt when you highlight your hair like that, are you changing who you are to look different to others?

Now, let’s dig a little deeper.

“Some guys…are normal, straight-acting, whatever and the next minute they’re jumping up and down….

So, he wants people to “be individual and just don’t be someone you’re not,” but he wants them to act straight (whatever that means) while being yourself.

So is it OK for straight guys to jump up and down? He says, speaking of his fellow gays “But some guys, at some point, are normal, straight-acting, whatever and the next minute they’re jumping up and down.”

These are straight Green Bay Packer fans. Acting straight one minute, jumping up and down the next.

I don’t know. Again, I can understand being conservative. I might disagree with their policies, but I understand that some people have conservative beliefs.

But to be gay, and support the party that wants to keep you from joining the military, keep you from legalizing your relationships, and wants you to be subject to discrimination in housing and employment, just does not make sense.
