  •  Why are some gays GOP? (0+ / 0-)

    I think it's simple. People assume that being a member of an oppressed minority group will make the fight for equality your most pressing political issue, but that isn't always true. But the modern GOP appeals to greed, selfishness, xenophobia and bigotry. Gays, like other people, can possibly be all or some of those things. And rich gays probably feel that their money will protect them from any harm that the GOP's anti-gay agenda might do to gays as a whole. Plus they can always rely on the majority of gays who vote for the opposite party to take care of all of those issues of equality. They are like pro-choice people who vote GOP in that way. They will vote on behalf of their economic interests and leave it to Democratic gays to hold the fort on other matters.

    In other words they are selfish and greedy assholes which is the general GOPer personality profile.
