No matter what our disagreements, we are forced through various pressures to live in the same homosexual house, and we all have different ideas about how that house should be run. Studying this, I have come to a conclusion:
Gay conservatives are the parents, and gay liberals are the teenagers.
The problem with the gay liberal mindset is that it is infested with a naïve idealism and penchant for wanting to see the world as how they wish it to be, not how it objectively is. The Democratic Party is their first true high school love, and like all true loves, the warts and faults have been smudged to a blurry shadow cast by their perceived Adonis.
Gay conservatives, on the other hand, are generally cynical adults. While some decry it as nothing more than jaded bitterness, cynicism is a characteristic wrought of experience and the wisdom that accompanies it. The Republican Party is not our true love, nor particularly a love. They are a friend we generally respect without feeling a need to be inexpressibly loyal to their every belief. We realize grown adults may reasonably disagree with one another without destroying a friendship and indignantly declaring, “You don’t love me!” before flouncing out of the room.
Please read the entire piece. PrismWarden gets to the heart of something I’ve been thinking a lot about since beginning this blog. Why are gay liberals so hateful toward gay conservatives?
The parent/kid relationship is a great way to explain it. Another way is that Gay Conservatives have figured out how to be gay within the American mainstream and even among those who tolerate but disapprove. Gay Liberals want to be there, but are too busy throwing stones and having temper tantrums and demanding instant and total gratification to figure out how to do it.
In short, Gay Liberals are jealous of Gay Conservatives. Discuss…
