Still Pissing And Moaning


Out in Iowa, where marriage equality is the norm, and locusts haven't come to destroy the crops, and the heavens haven't rained down on earth and the ground hasn't swallowed up those evil homosexuals, some folks still don't understand that being gay or lesbian, is not so very different from being straight. And those wingnuts are insistent on punishing the LGBT community.

One such asshat, Representative Chris Hagenow, a Republican of course, lobbied for the Iowa House to adopt an amendment to a domestic abuse bill that would have defined a spouse as between one man and one woman. See, that way, if you're gay or lesbian, and the victim of domestic abuse, the laws don't pertain to you, you dirty homosexual.

Ultimately Hagenow's proposal was shot down, er, deemed not germane to the bill, and his call to suspend the rules to move forward anyway failed, largely along a party vote. Yet, after the vote, Hagenow said his intention was to push the legislature to address the issue of marriage equality and not to deny same-sex couples protection from domestic abuse.

Um, Chris, why don't you get off your fat conservative ass and ask the people of Iowa how they feel about gay marriage. Each and every poll taken in your state since same-sex marriage was legalized shows that Iowans do not care about it; it's a non-issue, Chris.

Get with the program. Your constituents don't have a problem with marriage equality.

Move.On.

Another closet case?

Either way an idiot. Though I guess that's a wasted phrase when you already said he's Republican.
