RNC goofed big time tonight. Arnold is supposed to be the gay bridge to the Republican Party and he can't drop the girlie men line. I know it's supposed to be "funny" but how is implying anyone is gay and that's an insult endearing, compassionate or proving anything other than Republicans require thier gays in the closet? The man just basically said Either you're with us or you're a fag. Most of America may not see it that way. Or they do and still find it funny, as playground humor is par for the course in this nation. But it's horrible inclusionist strategy.

I myself have never understood the radical heterosexual community and their practice of forcing others to conform to their lifestyle for the sake of their own narrow-minded comfort.
Please tell me more explicitly (i.e. actions) about how you define "fringe".
Is it okay to forcibly (legally) deny a person their constitutional rights based on their sexuality? No, not if you believe in individual rights. Period.

Being gay is okay until you're a Republican/Conservative, then it's the most vile and unnatural attribute possible. Just further evidence of the duplicitous nature of the Liberal/Democrat psyche, and before you throw the hypocrite card on the table, think of all the times you have dismissed the "Shroud of Hypocrisy" which envelopes your favorite liberal... you probably did today...

I really don't think the "girly men" comment is homophobic. At least on Arnold's part. Im sure you are aware of its SNL origins? It was intially said inreference to the Democrats that were stalling on the state budget. The Dems spun it to be a homophobic remark, but it really IMHO was refering to them as wimps. The SF press would have crucified him, but the story was quickly dropped.

They should "Out" every last one of them. ..This guy is a coward; as is anyone who could stand aside & see folks like themselves wronged & do nothing.
This is one issue that Bout Time and I agree on completely.
This man is a taking the lead in supporting a constitutional amendment to deny basic civil rights (guaranteed under the 14th amendment) to a group of Americans based solely on their sexual orientation. A sexual orientation to which he belongs to.
I'm sorry but he had it coming.

I just want to know what basic civil rights are being denied? personally, I don't think the federal Government should be involved in any of these matters, It's a state matter.
