  •  She Cites "Cruel Attacks" on Santorum (21+ / 0-)

    But he is permitted to cruelly and repeatedly attack me and my family in the national media for years and years and years, using the most vicious slurs, without pundits like Parker ever calling him on it.

    He deserves every bit of the counter-attack and more.

    A lot more.

    •  Exactly Bink ! You hit the nail on the head (11+ / 0-)

      He equates being gay to having sex with one's pet and thus the name, Man on Dog, fits him perfectly. What does Santorum expect when he says horrible, vile shit like this !

      He says homosexuality will lead to the decay of American and he expects everyone to throw rose petals at him.

      He is against gay adoption and he is willing to let kids suffer and languish in group homes  and go from foster home to foster home instead of having the chance to be adopted by a loving, nurturing gay couple.   And we are to applaud him and the fact that 100,000 or more kids are out there for adoption but he discriminates against potential adoptive parents.

      He attacks the rights of women and wants to dictate their personal choices and medical decisions and he wants accolades.

      He gets away in these debates with saying he is for equal rights and respects the LGBT community but he is against the rights of them to be treated equally and to truly have equal rights. And he was against the Hate Crimes legislation as well.

      Santorum thinks he should be respected and given a place of importance while all he stands for is discrimination and hate and loathing of women and the LGBT community.  

      He deserves all the criticism and name calling he gets.

      •  I told my 14 year old about this (2+ / 0-)

        The one mentioned in my sig line.  

        I told him about what Dan Savage had done.  At first, my kid was horrified at the prospect of the frothy mixture.  

        I explained to him how Santorum says this vile, hateful stuff.  When my kid was 12 or so, he was uncomfortable discussing homosexuality.  I decided that I had done a bad job of making sure he knows how I feel about this stuff.   He agreed that the guy deserved what he got.  

        The other thing I've had to talk to him about is how to treat girls.  Teenage boys are just jerks to girls.  I will give credit to the boys for dealing with girls, because teenage girls are intent on mentally torturing the boys at this age. .  

        When my daughter was 4, she told me that when a boy likes a girl, the boy stares at her.  I asked her what the girl does, and she told me that the girls pretends the boy isn't looking. I thought about how disadvantaged the boys are when it comes to this game.  She was 4 and she already had the game down.   How is my boy supposed to be able to match that?

        Son to me: "Geez Dad, I'm not a pervert!" Me to son: "Son, you're a 14 year old boy, of course you're a pervert."
