I SeE GhEy PEOplE

Daryl MetcalfeRepublican Pennsylvania State Representative Daryl Metcalfe lives a nightmarish life.

Every which way he turns, gheyz are lurking in the shadows, looking foist their agenda on an unsuspecting public.

OttoFortunately, the PA public has Rep. Metcalfe there to defend them. The battle is tough, for the gheyz are tricky. But he expertly sniffed them out behind a seemingly uncontroversial, non-partisan resolution to designate October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

The Western Pennsylvania legislator said he detected that agenda in this phrase: “one in six women and one in 33 men have experienced an attempted or completed rape.”

Oh yes. Rep. Metcalfe is good. Very good. How did he know that we homosexuals were promoting our agenda under the cover of domestic violence awareness?

“It had language woven through it that brought men into the situation,” said Metcalfe, who voted for similar resolutions in the last two years. “I don’t support the resolution or funding for groups that go beyond helping women.”

And any men who are survivors of DV must be gay (because a woman could never beat up a man!), and by offering even the intangible support of a resolution, if a gay person is in any way helped, the GHeyZ have won! Oh that Metcalfe, he can see right through our nefarious machinations.  Drat!

“His comments show incredible insensitivity about what domestic violence is, combined with bigotry against lesbians, gays, bisexual, and transgendered people,” said Michael Morrill, executive director of Keystone Progress, an advocacy group in Harrisburg.

…Victims’ advocacy groups say men are victims of domestic violence in both homosexual and heterosexual relationships. There were 835,000 reported cases of male victims of domestic violence in the nation last year, according to the resolution.

Ah. Isn’t homophobia hilarious?  And male DV victims totally not worth helping, because they might be ghey?

You get 10 respect points if you can name the movie that gay zombie hiding behind lilacs is from.

  1. Bruce LaBruce’s Otto: Or, Up With Dead People.

    I am now respectable!

    Just a comment that I’d like to add which you mentioned – you can identify as male and heterosexual and yet be sexually assaulted, raped, etc. And the perpetrator does not need to identify as male or homosexual. *Sigh* Good job of helping survivors, Metcalfe. I am sure more men will now feel totally safe and comfortable coming forward with their stories and/or seeking forms of help.

  2. YOU WIN 10 RESPECT POINTS!!!!! Have you actually seen that movie? It’s awesome. I love Bruce LaBruce. I saw him speak at the US premier of Otto in Seattle! PADOW.

    Um, anyway you also get 10 MORE respect points for the points you make about male DV and SA victims. Well said, and important points.
