I dredged up this post of mine that I did at Myspace a while back on the Elaine Donnelly Train Wreck.
Thanks to all the Shakers from the Pub for great chats on Zombies, Zombie Fondue, Gang of Lesbians, Jane Doe #37, ZOMG SHOES and Ostriches. But never never ever clowns.
To anyone who was around when it happened, The Guy has had a death in the family very far away. Thanks for the well wishing from all of you Virtual Pub Crawlers. Thanks for learning to alcohol w/ me.
Keep Digging Homophobes, Keep Digging

B/c you are making the job of the LGBTQ community and their allies a hell of a lot easier by allowing rifuckingdiculous morons like this homobigot, Elaine Donnelly to make arguments on your behalf.
Not only did she not make anything remotely close to the ballpark of a coherent point, but she actually managed to unite people against her idiocy. I almost feel sad for her b/c of how twisted she is in her hatred.
For some more opinions on this issue, I recommend reading Mustang Bobby’s thoughts, or Melissa McEwan’s piece on The Guardian’s “Comment Is Free”.
Also, watch this hilarious clip of Representative Shays, a fucking REPUBLICAN chastising her for her lunacy (she can’t even get the people traditionally on her side to agree w/ her!):
I have to ask, exactly what “inappropriate passive/aggressive activity” is so common in the homosexual community that the military needs to clutch it’s pearls and run in shame? How is a woman being ogled by a lesbian any different than the ogling that takes place here and now in today’s military from men? How can it be assumed that inappropriate sexual conduct will run amok w/ LGBTQ people serving openly any more than heterosexual inappropriateness already does? Are we forgetting that rape and sexual assault are huge issues now, among heterosexual service members?
Get the fuck over yourself, Ms. Donnelly. I can’t thank you enough for the progress you made today on behalf of the LGBTQ community and it’s allies. You just managed to insult anyone and everyone who has ever served in uniform by assuming that they are not professional enough to get their fucking jobs done w/ teh evil gayz!!!!1!!eleventyone!! running free.
When DADT is repealed, we will have her to thank.
and, I love this quote from the above linked WaPo article:
Rep. Vic Snyder (D-Ark.) labeled her statement “just bonkers” and “dumb,” and he called her claims about an HIV menace “inappropriate.” Said Snyder: “By this analysis . . . we ought to recruit only lesbians for the military, because they have the lowest incidence of HIV in the country.”
