Dan Savage, whose column Savage Love has consistently argued that “the bigger the cushion the more pleasin’ the pushin,” today outed Governor Chris Christie (“my Christie”) as a plus size cross dresser and his adulterous lover of the past decade.  The relationship fractured over Christie’s loss of weight, Savage being a known “chubby chaser” who was looking for some “baby with back” not provided by his trophy model husband.

Savage said he now plans to give up on the gay life and undergo conversion therapy.

Former Governor James McGreevey said the couple had registered on his gaydar for years.

The Terrible, Bad, No-Good Plan to Boycott Stoli Vodka over Russia’s Vile Treatment of Gays

Dan Savage et al are perhaps the same kind of idiot bitches who perform for bloody dictator’s birthday parties for a million dollars.  They certainly buy the music and give a pass to skanks like Beyonce and J-Lo.

Keenan Houlahan, the gay columnist who was so ashamed of his unmanly name that he butched it up and adopted “Dan Savage” as a nom de plume, is on Twitter calling people “cum dumps.”  So sad, he is actually funny sometimes, and often gives decent relationship advice.  But his commitment to the current fascist in office, who scratches “Dan’s” belly and gives him treats, has led him to behave badly on line.

Dan Savage, Anti-bullying Advocate, Calls Ideological Opponents “Cum Dumps”

Yes, you read that headline correctly. A man who claims to be an anti-bullying advocate has stooped to the level of hurling sexual insults at political rivals. This just reeks of immaturity and hypocrisy, does it not?
But if you know ANYTHING about the truth of who Dan Savage is, you likely already know that he’s among the biggest hypocrites to walk the Earth. So really, this should come as no surprise. For those of you still in the dark, let me fill you in.
Yesterday evening on Twitter, Republican and GOProud chairman Chris Barron, who is gay, tweetedan article by anti-bullying advocate and sex advice columnist Dan Savage, who is also gay. Barron told his followers that Savage compares gay conservatives to “drug addicts” in his latest column, and included Savage in his tweet using his handle @fakedansavage.
Savage quickly responded to Barron and was proud to remind him that he had also compared them to “drunks” and “cum dumps” in previous articles.
Well there you have it! Gay conservatives are akin to “drunks,” “drug addicts,” and “cum dumps.” I certainly didn’t know that homosexual men and women who believe in smaller government and fiscal responsibility were all of those things! Thanks for enlightening me, Dan.
It’d be one thing if these kind of juvenile remarks were made by any old person on any given day on any online social media platform. But that is not the case here. These comments were made by a man with more than 85,000 Twitter followers, loyal column readers, and a young, impressionable viewing audience for his MTV show. This man has a proud history of being an anti-bullying advocate for gay youth and yet his actions are consistently the furthest thing from the words that he speaks.
You’ve likely heard of the project entitled “It Gets Better” – an online platform comprised of videos that encourage gay, bullied youth to hang in there because life does indeed “get better.” Savage, apparently burdened by the plight of those who are made fun of, co-founded the project and it has received widespread acclaim, getting the attention of Hollywood celebrities and politicians alike.
Savage is also a sex-advice columnist and host of MTV show “Savage U” where he travels to various US universities and colleges answering sex questions and giving advice to inquisitive young co-eds. 
But if this was all you knew about Savage, you’d be under the impression that he is simply an advocate for those who can’t defend themselves and a man who seeks to improve the world in which he lives. I’m sure that’s the impression he’d LIKE to give to others. But his history of wishing Republicans were all “f**king dead,” ascribing sexual acts to Supreme Court justices, and launching a campaign to redefine the last name of Senator Rick Santorum with a sexual smear is simply the truth – and that truth will follow him the rest of his life.
Oh, you think that wishing Republicans were dead or attempting to redefine “Santorum” as “the frothy mixture of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the by-product of anal sex” is disgusting? I wish that were all he did.
In 2000, Savage admitted to having the flu and proceeding to lick the door knobs of the campaign headquarters of then GOP presidential candidate Gary Bauer in attempt to spread his sickness to Bauer. (Grumpy ‘ol  Savage just didn’t like what Bauer had to say and was actually hired by Salon.com to infiltration the Bauer presidential campaign.)
Oh wait, I’m not done. Savage also didn’t care for Herman Cain’s statement that he believes being gay “is a personal choice,” back when Cain appeared on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight program. So what did our valiant anti-bullying advocate do? He invited Herman Cain to prove that being gay is a choice and invited him to “suck his d**k” in front of a waiting camera crew.
It’s on “Savage U,” his MTV show, where he dishes out little nuggets of wisdom such as calling pregnancy, “the world’s oldest and most disruptive sexually transmitted infection.” (If any of you were awake at 11:45pm EST last Tuesday, you’ll recall I was awake watching “Savage U” and tweeted that line when it aired.)
Oh! And I almost forgot. Savage once called Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia a “homophobe” and a “c**kscuker.”
Whew. I think that about covers all of the instances I know of where Savage has bullied Republicans and conservatives.
Folks, THIS is the real Dan Savage. Is the real Dan Savage an anti-bullying advocate? Yes. Is the real Dan Savage himself the chief among bullies? Yes. The real Dan Savage is the textbook definition of a hypocrite. His credibility remains at ZERO.
Dear readers- I value Savage’s opinion about as much as Al Sharpton cares about ACTUALLY improving race relations in this country without the motivation of political expediency. However, thousands upon thousands of people DO care what Savage has to say on any given topic. THAT is why I even waste my breath or my time telling you all of this.
Obi-Wan: the fail is strong with this one.
***In the interest of full disclosure, that was not the end of the Twitter exchange between Savage and Barron. Once I saw the initial exchange, I couldn’t help but chime in, being the student of Dan Savage’s sad and harmful history of hypocrisy that I am.
Savage responded, implying GOProud had bullied a gay author.
To sum it up, Village Voice author Michael Musto called gay conservative group GOProud “Jewish Nazis” for endorsing Mitt Romney. GOProud executive director Jimmy LaSalvia responded by saying he looked like a “human muppet.”
Savage apparently thought LaSalvia’s remark on Musto’s appearance (in response to being called a Jewish Nazi, remember) is the equivalent to actual, harmful bullying. This was my response to Savage.
I included the entire context of the Twitter exchange for just that – context. The point of my article was to highlight the hypocrisy of Savage with his name-calling, but I wanted to be honest in sharing that our conversation revolved around the Musto article as well.***

Dan Savage, or rather Keenan Houlahan, the plumbing advice columnist whose internalized homophobia led him to abandon his given name of Keenan Houlahan as too faggoty,  for the masculine comic book hero moniker “Dan Savage,” has once again sought media attention, calling a gay political group “faggots” for endorsing someone not his choice for President.

In particular he called them “house faggots,” which is probably projection, given Democratic party gays’ long tradition of sucking up slights, evasions and half-measures, while bending over and spreading their wallets for politicians who otherwise ignore them.

It was kind of an odd charge though, since the group he was attacking, GOProud, is not a membership organization, and has an advisory board heavy with heterosexuals, like author Margaret Hoover and taxpayer advocate Grover Norquist.  How can these people be house faggots when they aren’t even faggots?

One supposes he was aiming at the group’s director, Jimmy LaSalvia, and founder, Chris Barron, who are bonafide (as it were) homosexuals, or perhaps its staff, a uniformly delectable group of college age gay interns (I have visited their Capitol Hill office).  The curiosity there is that Chris Barron did not endorse Romney, but instead is supporting Libertarian presidential candidate Governor Gary Johnson, and was indeed a Johnson delegate this May at the Libertarian Party nominating convention.  Further the GOProud advisory board endorsement was not unanimous, and even the endorsement they did issue had a heavy context of “gay people are more than simply gays, they also are taxpayers who need jobs and a president who will not lie to them, hence Barack Obama fails on all counts,” and for those who are two party faithful, only one “hold your nose” or “hope he evolves” choice remains (and Romney’s history is certainly one of … evolutions).

The gay trolls who live in the leftover blogosphere are in their usual ferment.  Too ugly to leave their basements for a gay bar or film festival, they sit at home all night on their PCs typing howlers in worship of their hero Keenan Houlahan.  The comments at the leftoid RawStory are particularly laughable.  The author manages not to know or report any of the facts I laid out (GOProud board may be mainly straights, Barron a Libertarian not supporting Romney, etc.).  The insectoid readers continue on, discussing Log Cabin Republicans, which is (1) not GOProud, (2) a membership organization, and (3) has, I believe, not (yet) endorsed Romney.  And of course these poor anencephalic poofters (no doubt doubly anencephalic, actually) begin barking about how white gay males who are part of the 1% identify with the ruling class, even as these leftoid pole smokers defend their master’s use of predator drones to kill gay children in Arabia, his placing of gay and lesbian Americans on his Presidential kill list, and his bailout of crony capitalists who control the Federal Reserve System.  And even while gay white male Keenan Houlahan strokes these sheeple and laughs all the way to the bank and his White House dinners with their money.

Good thing so many of them will not breed.

Dan Savage Calls Gay Conservative Group GOProud ‘House Faggots’ For Romney Endorsement


Columnist and co-creator of the It Gets Better project Dan Savage called a gay conservative group “faggots” after the group endorsed Mitt Romney Wednesday.
GOProud endorsed Romney in a news release and said they would commit “significant resources” to his campaign. The group describes itself as “a national organization of gay and straight Americans seeking to promote freedom by supporting free markets, limited government, and a respect for individual rights.”
“Most gay Americans – like their straight counterparts – are not better off than they were four years ago,” Jimmy LaSalvia, GOProud executive director, said in a statement endorsing the Republican nominee. “The truth is that gay people are living in the disastrous failed Obama economy too.” Savage tweeted a link to a story about the groups endorsement, mocking them as “GOP house faggots” for “grab[bing] their ankles, right on cue.”
LaSalvia said the group opposes Romney’s support of a federal marriage amendment and acknowledged the group’s endorsement was not unanimous with two members of its board voting against it.
“For far too long, the gay left in this country has been allowed to dictate what they believe qualify as ‘gay issues,’” LaSalvia said in the statement. “We think that jobs, the economy, healthcare, retirement security and taxes are all ‘gay issues,’ and on every single one of those issues, Mitt Romney is light years better than President Obama.”
GOProud has not officially released a statement on Savage’s tweet, but co-founder Christopher Barron responded on his site: “Apparently, faggot is an entirely appropriate slur as long as Dan Savage is slinging it and gay people who you don’t agree with are on the receiving end. It gets better my ass.”

Fans of Keenan Hollahan, aka “Dan Savage,” the author of the Savage Love sex advice column, have been concerned about an apparent suicide attempt, lost in the news coverage of Whitney Houston’s tragic death.  Mr. Hollahan has been committed to the psychiatric ward of Seattle Children’s Hospital for the past 24 hours, despondent over the fact that his life work, the creation of a definition of “Santorum” as a particular discharge from sexual activity, has been ignored this election season, after a few years of popularity as a slang term.

Hollahan’s husband, Terry Miller, said “for the past two weeks the mainstream media have discussed the Santorum surge without any irony.  Dan has been drinking caramel Appletinis non-stop and finally drove our Prius into a recycling center, screaming that he wanted to be re-incarnated as a gay penguin so he would be a continent away from American politics.”  Savage had been in a catatonic state since the EMTs found him thrown from the car into a bin of sorted recyclables.

At 2:30 eastern time today Savage was said to have become more aware, when Rush Limbaugh, on his nationally syndicated radio program, told a caller that “Santorum has conservatism throughout his bodily fluids.”  Doctors say if his condition continues to improve he may be released in time to get his column out by Thursday.

Reports are that an on line contest being run by Santorum supporters for a definition of “Hole-and-hand” had been temporarily suspended, though sources close to the contest organizers say the winning definition had something to do with bending over and being fisted by a mendacious, waffling politician while saying “Thank you Sir, may I have another!”

Dan Savage is best known as the sex advice columnist who a few years back conducted a contest among his readers to provide an offensive definition to the term “Santorum.”  A winner did emerge, and the definition (which I will leave it to the reader to google), is the first thing that pops up when anyone does a google search for information on Rick Santorum.

Savage is gay and was offended, like many people gay and straight, by Santorum’s remarks likening homosexuality to bestiality.  But Savage is also a partisan Democrat, a sometime party-goer at Obama White House dinners.  Besides his column and his definition of the term santorum, Savage also is involved in a video series that is aimed at helping suicidal gay teens entitled It Gets Better (www.ItGetsBetter.org) and a twitter campaign to get President Obama (whose re-election Savage supports) to go ahead and #evolvealready on the issue of gay marriage.

But just as most so called “liberals” and people on the left support policies that actually harm the poor and minorities for whom they claim to speak, Savage’s policies actually lead to gay teen suicide.

In today’s column Dan Savage’s pro-regressivism comes out again.  His “fatal conceit,” his “pretense of knowledge,” is that only a consciously designed gay-friendly school, with ideologically committed gay-friendly teachers and parents, and explicitly thematized pro-gay re-education programs for the student body, can help a gay student.

If you don’t have these things kids, you are SOL and will just have to suffer beatings and ostracism.

And we should pass a stimulus bill to fund special conferences and workshops (i.e. vacations) for teachers to learn about homosexuals, staffed by all of the professional gay lobbyists, who will then have a federally funded sinecure when not working for Democratic campaigns and administrations.

Out Now

January 18, 2012

My 13-year-old son came out to us this morning. He plans to tell his brothers in the next few days. We love and accept our son, and this news isn’t surprising (but when will the stereotypical neatness kick in?), but we do have some concerns. He has, apparently, already made the news public at school. Any pointers you can give? We want to make sure he knows that we love him and don’t care about his sexuality, while at the same time preparing him to deal with those people who do. Also, any advice you can give for when he starts dating would be appreciated.
Dad Seeks Support
“On behalf of advocates for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth everywhere, let me be the first to say ‘thank you,'” says Eliza Byard, executive director of GLSEN (www.glsen.org), the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network, which works to create safe school environments for LGBT—and straight—youth. “Simply by giving your son your love and support, you have already significantly increased his chances of living a happy and fulfilling life. The importance of an accepting home cannot be overstated.” (The damage that can be done by a hostile family also cannot be overstated: LGBT youth whose families are hostile are eight times likelier to commit suicide than their straight peers. Hostile parents can’t make their gay kids straight, but they can make them dead.)
“The bad news is that school can be a miserable place for LGBT youth,” says Byard. “GLSEN’s 2009 National School Climate Survey found that nearly 9 out of 10 LGBT teens experienced harassment in school in the past year. The good news is that engaged parents can make a huge difference.” 


“Talk to your son and learn more about his school and his experiences there since coming out,” advises Byard. “What kind of response has he received? What supports are in place for him at school? Does the school have a Gay-Straight Alliance? Do students have access to LGBT-affirming resources in the library? Does the school have policies that address bullying? Are there adults in the school community whom he trusts and feels are supportive?”
Call your son’s school, DSS, and set up a meeting. Making sure his teachers and school administrators know that you’re on your son’s side—and they know you intend to hold them accountable—can go a long way toward creating a safe environment for your son at school.

“Send a GLSEN Safe Space Kit (www.safespacekit.com) to your son’s school to give educators the tools they need to provide support and create a safe space in their classroom for your son,” advises Byard. “Visible signs of support, such as a GLSEN Safe Space sticker on a door, can fundamentally alter the school experience of an LGBT youth by helping them identify those adults in the community who are supportive.”http://www.thestranger.com/seattle/SavageLove?oid=11791997

In reality all you need is school choice.  Even homophobic parents don’t want a kid to come home all the time with scrapes and bruises and black eyes, depressed and suicidal.  Just allowing a market in education services would lead to the failing and closure of schools and the firing of teachers and administrators, who allow kids to beat other kids.  And would create more diversity in education.

Another superior feature of the free market, Hayekian, approach to school homophobia is that it allows kids who are NOT out, and parents who do not yet want to acknowledge their child’s homosexuality, to also protect children from homophobia.  Lots of kids are beaten for being gay without anyone ever saying they are gay; they are just beaten for being different, gender atypical, whatever.  Sometimes they may not even be gay.  Sometimes the kids beating them are gay and are experiencing anxiety and homosexual panic, and think beating up another kid, especially a gay kid, will prove that they aren’t gay.  In Savage’s centrally planned government school system there has to be a judge and jury:  the gay kids must come out, everyone must be labelled as “gay” etc., and on and on to get the state school monopoly to decide a protected class is suffering a civil rights violation, and have some redress of grievances.  In a free market a parent just removes his kid and stops paying tuition (or using her education voucher) to a school that sends her kid home beaten up.  And perhaps she sends her kid to a school that bills itself as an art or music or theater or science or outdoor exploring or sporty etc. school, which she may understand as a school where her gay or lesbian or gender atypical child will fit in better, even if they don’t talk about the kid’s being gay — and even if the kid isn’t gay.
But Dan Savage and the Democratic Party he supports depends on pro-regressives rounding up kids, especially poor brown and black kids, and selling them to the educrat cartels for money for Democratic candidates.  The profits of the slave trade are hard to give up, so expect teen gay suicides to continue.
