Later came the disco queens, Donna Summer being at the top of that list. Over many generations these spotlight stealing celebrities have each held a very important and exclusive title, bringing them hoards of fans and ensured their niche popularity even as they age and fade from the mainstream tabloids. The title I am talking about is that of the gay icon.
When conservative commentator Ann Coulter called former Vice President Al Gore a "total fag" on national television nearly a year ago, it barely caused a stir. Coulter's recent labeling of presidential candidate John Edwards as a "faggot," however, has triggered a huge response, including a campaign initiated today by a gay rights group and media watchdog to persuade mainstream media outlets to dump her for good. At least four newspapers have dropped Coulter's syndicated column, and 40, people signed an online petition to Universal Press Syndicatewhich distributes her column, demanding that it release her.
Ann Coulter appeared on Piers Morgan last night dressed in a slinky, sleeveless blue top and looking more Botoxed than ever. The lanky political pundit stopped by to plug her new bookwhich is essentially just a rehash of her previously-published columns. During the interview, Coulter denied Republicans believe Obama is from Kenya, twisting the whole birther argument around and saying it was actually Hillary Clinton who started that rumor.
GOProud is the tea party of the gay rights movement, with well-tailored dark suits in place of revolutionary war garb. The gay right is thriving at a moment that the mainstream gay rights movement faces a profound crisis. The set of Washington-based establishment groups led by the Human Rights Campaign have close ties to the White House and have turned gay righs into a plan of the Democratic Party platform. The realization that their alliance with the Democratic Party has — for the moment — failed to produce key policy shifts is producing a round of finger-pointing and bloodletting inside the traditional gay rights movement, with calls for resignations and turns toward the courts and toward civil disobedience.
The subject who is truly loyal to the Chief Magistrate will neither advise nor submit to arbitrary measures. Ann Coulter unplugged. The conservative provocateur mocked gay men last night, saying there are two things they can't do - "get married to each other" they can in Canada and some American states and "throw a baseball without looking like a girl.
Conservative columnist Ann Coulter continues to get blasted for her homophobic comments regarding Hurricane Harvey hitting Houston. The Huffington Post Queer Voices reported that this weekend saw the best response yet — from the person Coulter was attacking in her initial tweet. On 28 August, Coulter tweeted it was more believable to think that God sent Harvey to devastate Houston as punishment for electing a lesbian mayor than to blame it on climate change.
There are people that go that way. Coulter is a dull, small minded entertainer relying on the shock value associated with saying profoundly stupid things to promote her book of the moment. She will be of real value to society when she volunteers to serve as a septic tank cleaner, IF she can manage to do the job correctly.
