Homocons: fuck them!

I learned a new word: homocon.

Although not as catchy or as politically incorrect as its African American equivalent, the lexicon of gay slang now has its own version of the term "Uncle Tom." The word is "homocon," short for homosexual conservative, and we have Richard Goldstein and his recent book, The Attack Queers: Liberal Society and the Gay Right, to thank for introducing it.
Bob Berens in Dissent reviewing The Attack Queers: Liberal Society and the Gay Right

Back in the 70s The Advocate began its journey to coated paper stock when it was bought by millionaire California faggot.* I was pretty shocked to learn he was a member of the Republican Party. I’d never met a gay person with rightwing sympathies. Likely I’d never met one who’d admit it.

Back in the early years after Stonewall liberal gay men were more likely to come out. Aside from an ethical need to free themselves and their fellow gay men they were more likely to have friends who could accept them. The conservative queers lingered longer in their closet.

It should’ve been obvious that an unwanted side effect of gay liberation would be log cabin boys: for some people the highest political goal they cam imagine is a nonaggression pact protecting their wallet

Probably finding they loved their own sex separated only a small slice of gay people from the confines of their upbringing. People who would’ve escaped their preconceptions anyway.

Andrew Sullivan is the poster boy of the gay assimilationists. I’m a sloppily romantic, monogamous gay guy. But I don’t have an axe to grind with the Brian Kinneys sucking and fucking their way through life. If there’s anything cheering about life it is pluralism, variety, (an overworked word) diversity.

Republican fags* don’t write much. Possibly many of them wouldn’t get published even in the glossy magazines filled with ads for HIV treatments. But any chatroom or online forum frequented by gay men will tell you there are plenty of redneck sodomites. Their dick is the only thing that has been liberated.

* I don’t use the “f” words to denigrate them. I date from a time when a radical gay man would use faggot much the way queer has been used in recent years. I call myself a faggot all the time.

Sure, I call you a fag all the time too. LOL.

Homocons is a stupid name. I prefer “Banana Republicans,” though I doubt that word has much use outside of specific demografic parameters. A redneck isn’t necessarily a conservative, nor any of the other epithets associable thereunto. I consider myself to be a redneck, growing up in a trailer park, wearing old trashy clothes, drinking beer and belching, farting, watching RealTV, talking shit, getting blown by relatives.

Big fuckin’ deal. LoL I enjoy being me, and that precludes trying to take anyone else’s enjoyment of being themselves away—something these Americonservatives have at heart, a controllin’ demagoguery and a despotism of economic priority.

Your feelings?

Please share your feelings about Homocons: fuck them!.
Thanks,
Richard
