Bill & wife speak ‘out’ (Hail her past as lesbian pioneer)
NY POST ^ | 12/11/12 | LAUREL BABCOCK and CARL CAMPANILE

Posted on 12/12/2012 4:22:44 AM PST by Liz

Chirlane McCray and husband, NY Public Advocate Bill de Blasio, a mayoral candidate, respond to her declaration in 1979 Essence magazine, “I am a lesbian.” McCray said, “I’m going to use this as a platform to go out and do a lot of good.” Asked if she was no longer a lesbian, McCray said, “Sexuality is a fluid thing and it’s personal. I don’t even understand the question, quite frankly.” A top aide to Mayor Bloomberg applauded the couple. De Blasio insisted he wasn’t exploiting the issue for political gain. “We’re very proud of who we are. We want to tell people what we’re about,” he said.

Sexuality is personal, but it is not fluid. In fact, the use of the words "sexuality" and "fluid" in the same sentence are unfortunately providing me with a mental image that is interfering with my breakfast.

In typical faggot fashion. “It’s all about me”

It seems that all “homosexuals” are afflicted with narcissism

So much for the “I was born this way” argument.

Seriously. It is amazing the same liberals who "Celebrate Diversity" over someone like Chirlane McCray's "sexuality journey", and praise her as "brave", are the ones who ridicule "Ex Gays", loathe Exodus International, and want to ban gay to straight reparative therapy.

The core of liberalism requires hypocrisy.

We want to tell people what we’re about,” he said.

...and I said if it is about your principles I’m certainly interested, if it is about your sexual orientation, tell me why I should be interested.

Quite frankly then you must be a special kind of stupid!
Why is it personal today but not when you announced it in a magazine??

But it is impossible for homosexuals to change. That is why they want to make conversion therapy illegal.

“It seems that all “homosexuals” are afflicted with narcissism.”

Proves my theory that homosexuality is caused by weak boys playing with girls when they were children and adopting girlish ways. It would only make sense then that while the girls will meet boys, the boy with the new traits would also want to meet boys.

Same applies to strong girls playing with boys and taking on those traits. When it is time to meet girls, the strong girl, with the boyish traits she developed would also want to meet a girl.

Narcissism is developed during the period of confusion when they cannot understand why this happened and start to look at it as being everyone’s fault but their own.

Now where is my government grant?

Usually the “homosexual” has been sexually assaulted in childhood

C’mon, you stuffy old conservatives! Of course, sexuality is fluid, just as morals and ethics are.

“Sexuality is a fluid thing and it’s personal..."

It's not personal in NYC if it's over 16 fluid ounces.

I really don’t care that his wife is a dyke.

Why don’t we look at the role Bill had in the housing market crash?

“Lesbian Pioneer”

Yup, many’s the time I’d hear old Gran tell the tale about the wagon trains of lesbians that settled the west, how every night they’d unhitch the bulldykes from the Conestoga wagons and leave their dildos pointing to the North Star...

think RECREATIONAL as the “fluid” (no sarcasm intended) she mentions.

If it is fluid and changing then there can be no designation for discrimination. It is not an immutable trait.

Just like society frowns on canibalism or animal/human sex, so too does society have the ability to say there are boundaries for recreational conduct.

meanwhile some girl is being pushed by her liberal mother to petition for an “easy bake over” just for boys.

It just became the DO NOT BUY FOR BOYS toy. (see also ken doll.)

Only the weirdos of the cooking chanel endorse the concept.

Well, I like the Dennis Prager theory:

Women make emotional attachments that sex goes along with, and they can have them with women or men. In a normal life, they form them with men.

Men are just horny, and some horndogs will find recipients who are male, female, animal, vegetable mineral, whatever. In a normal life, they are horny with women.
