Conservative lesbians really exist! And how do I know? Because the New York Times has just discovered us! Like uncovering a rare species that flies in the face of the liberally defined political facts of life, the New York Times has tentatively exposed their Democrat devotees to a published presentation exhibiting those very contrary unicorns of the LGBT community: Republican Lesbians.
Although the Republican Party has long drawn gay men who believe in the party’s message of small government and a strong military, Republican lesbians are a rare political breed.
There is no way to measure the true numbers, but gay activists say that in many cases, these “unicorns” were Republicans before they were gay — driven by conservative upbringings, economic issues and libertarian principles. They often did not acknowledge their sexual orientation, even to themselves, until middle age. New York Times
For the most part, the women highlighted in Sarah Wheaton’s article all adhere to the same life scenario and don’t really reflect the full spectrum of conservative and libertarian lesbians. But the article is fair-minded and totally free of the usual snark and condescending commentary that typically ooze from this paper’s so very superior pages.
The comment section is well worth the read. The absolute outrage vented toward the lesbians portrayed in the article, and also at the very concept of conservative women-loving-women, is a hoot and a half. Ms. Wheaton’s article really shook up the puritanically progressive Holy Fathers and Mothers of the liberal establishment.
Click on the link to read the article, and if you’re of a mind, add your comment to the 300 plus already posted. I added my two cents worth under the handle of Les Con. Don’t let those anonymous ‘gay activists’ tell the world who we really are and what we’re all about. Put your face forward and blow their Democratically demented minds.
And thanks to Paula for pointing out the article to me.
