Ann Coulter, voice of reason for our generation, spoke this weekend at Homocon, a summit held by the gay conservative group (no, really) GOProud. After being invited to speak at the convention, Coulter told event organizers that, while she would accept their speaking fee, she probably wouldn’t tell them what they wanted to hear. It seems she delivered on her promise.
Her advice to gay conservatives? Well, for one, that they should ally themselves with the anti-choice movement because, “As soon as they find the gay gene, you know who’s getting aborted.” A biting comment made especially interesting by the concession, rarely found among moral conservatives, that homosexuality may be partly genetically predetermined and not a “lifestyle choice.” An observation that, of course, she then topped off with a creepy eugenics prophesy.
The real question is why Homocon would invite and insist upon Ann Coulter as their event headliner. Are all gays, even the conservative ones, secretly masochists, as some Christians portray them to be? Or is it just that Ann Coulter is, incomprehensibly, the self-professed “right-wing Judy Garland?"
