  •  Lack of EMPATHY is clearly seen in.... (10+ / 0-)

    Dick Cheney for example, who had only rats' asses for LGBT people until his own daughter was L.
    and Rob Portman, and his utter lack of caring until his son was one of 'em.

    •  Don't let Portman fool you, (0+ / 0-)

      he still doesn't give a fuck.  If he truly cared, he wouldn't have said it should be left to the states.  He didn't come out and say it, but the literal implication of what he's said about his "evolution" on gay marriage is that he is ok with his son not being able to marry a man he loves, if he lives in a state which chooses to outlaw it.

      As much as I now loathe people like Susan Collins, I have slightly more respect for her, since she came out against gay marriage in a state that recently legalized it, than I do for the assholes who say "I think it should be left to the states" and then try to say they're in favor of it.  No.  They're not.  They just went from "against it" to "I don't really care."

      Fuck Portman.

      •  I agree COMPLETELY! (0+ / 0-)

        Fear not!  When these parents experience the thing that they are against, hitting home, and they accept their kids, that only makes me revile them more.....because they have been hypocrites all along and still don't give a fuck about the rest of us.

        FUCK THEM!!!  (I agree wholeheartedly).
