On One Benefit of Being Gay: You Can Vote for Obama and Be Pleased That He Won, But Not Buy Into All This Hope and Change Bullshit, Because When All Is Said and Done, You’re Still a Second-Class Citizen
In which The Gay Recluse ponders life with the majority party.
Confession time: Though we would have been predictably devastated by a McCain victory, we’re still a little nauseated by the onslaught of shallow optimism on display since Obama was declared the winner.
We think of California (and Arizona and Florida) and are left with heavy sighs.
Or Arkansas, where kids now have to be adopted by married (and we know what that means) couples. Seriously, what kind of county are we living in that would allow this to happen?
So yeah, our official attitude is fuck hope (at least in the political sense of the word): what we want is a merciless leader who knows how to stick a knife into the opposition and twist it, just the way they’ve been doing to us for the last ____ decades (including Clinton, obvs).
This is the real reason we continue to feel good about Obama, given that all signs point to the conclusion that he expects to do exactly that.
