Tom Lukiwski and the Carnival of Hate
On a day like this one I wish I could just write about Spring...and lovers...and how great it feels to have survived Winter in Canada.
Or write about the things that I really LOVE to do in Summer, like flying, sailing, camping, or just riding my bike.
But instead because I was born gay I'm forced to deal with shite like this.
Yikes. What a GREASER. Once it was a John Travolta wannabe...in Syphilis Night Fever. Now it's a Con M.P. I don't know what's SCARIER.
Or what to say except that I'm not surprised. Stephen Harper's mean and miserable government is crawling with piggy homophobes like Tom Lukiwski. They can't fire his ass because they ALL think like him.
As for his apology.... it rings hollow to me. The tape may be sixteen years old. But three years ago he was still spewing his anti-gay garbage.
At 8 p.m., Conservative MP Tom Lukiwski makes a final speech. So raucous is the chamber, so loud the press gallery that I can barely hear him declare that the bill represents “a very slippery slope” that could lead to polygamy.
So much for the passage of time.
So much for the Carnival of Hate.
You know I never will understand why so many straight people seem to get a kick out of attacking us for who we are. Or who we love.
Personally it doesn't bother me a bit. It says more about them than it says about me. It's like shite off a duck's back.
But as I sit here staring at Sébastien who has fallen asleep on the couch after another long day at work. Helping and healing people gay and straight. And I think that these bastards are also insulting HIM ... and the love that binds us together. And I think how good he is, and how rotten they are.
And what they are doing to my beautiful gay brothers and sisters all over the world. Even though like them they have only one life to live.
Then I get so mad I feel like hunting down a homophobe and punching its fucking lights out.
Then I remember what the sleeping one would say. In French....and in a slightly ruder way.
"No Simon blockhead @%#& ...remember we're better than them."
And I guess we really are. I've never heard gay people insult straights like they insult us. If anybody is diseased THEY are.
That's why no matter what vile stuff they throw at us we will never give up.
That's why the greatest freedom cause in the world can't be stopped.
Oops. The sleeping beauty has woken up.
Eat your cold, dark, dirty hearts out you fucking homophobes.
It's the Carnival of Love !!!!
