My Name is Nobody

October 9th, 2014

A follow-up to Sexual Deviants, inspired by Laura Ingraham: Being Against Gay Marriage Is Not Being Anti-Gay Or Judging (David Badash, The New Civil Rights Movement 10/10/14 15:16) and The bigots finally go down: How anti-gay haters officially lost the marriage fight (Salon 10/08/14) .

 

“To say that you’re for traditional marriage doesn’t say that you’re anti-gay people or you don’t like gay people… nobody’s saying that.” – Laura Ingraham on her radio show today

 

“I’m saying that, as are a lot of people, including the Supreme Court.” – me (which I guess means my name is Nobody)

 

I, for one, do in fact say

That being against equality makes you anti-gay.

 

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.

Does that make me a nobody then?

 

But I’m not the only one, so Laura, you’re wrong:

The “Nobodies” saying that are a veritable throng.

 

And that, Dear Laura, is what the Supreme Court said too:

It seems that Nobody agrees with you.

***

Here’s Laura.

 

Here’s a scene from the movie (a great one) that inspired our title.


And speaking of the Supreme Court, here they are in Windsor:

 

“This is strong evidence of a law having the purpose and effect of disapproval of a class recognized and protected by state law. DOMA’s avowed purpose and practical effect are to impose a disadvantage, a separate status, and so a stigma upon all who enter into same-sex marriages made lawful by the unquestioned authority of the States.”

 

That’s just a fancy way of saying that if “you’re for traditional marriage” it does mean you’re anti-gay.
