There’s been a lot of smarmy talk about Marcus Bachmann, the husband of anti-gay presidential candidate Michele Bachmann, being secretly gay. Not because anyone knows of him having actually, you know, had sex with men. But because of the way he talks and dances. Including from Dan Savage, the founder of “It Gets Better,” who should know better.
Bachmann is a scumbag because he runs a clinic that offers “reparative therapy’ to cure homosexuals. He’s a homophobe who makes money off of making other people’s lives worse. I have no desire to defend him or his wife.
But he’s not gay because of how he talks or moves, and suggesting that he is, is a total asshat move that implicitly supports a whole range of shitty messages about masculinity and homosexuality.
So stop it.
That is all.
