Homocon horcrux Robert Oscar Lopez and anti-gay Heritage Foundation wonk Ryan Anderson recently gave speeches at a Stanford University conference on “communicating family values.” According to Lopez, gay students ignored his speech but engaged with Anderson. Because one is cute and one isn’t.
The conference plodded along without major incident. The queer students showed up looking very Wall Street with their collared office shirts and executive-boardroom mannerisms. They flocked to Ryan Anderson with commentary, but then when I presented, they sat quietly through the talk, asked no questions, and left. “Shell,” I asked, “is it just me, or did they not have any interest in arguing with me or talking to me?” Michelle had the same impression I did: these “queer” students had no interest in me other than as an effigy to burn. They were drawn immediately to Ryan Anderson’s prep school looks and Princeton charm. “No matter what they say, they are not class enemies,” Michelle noted, hypothesizing that all the banter was like so much foreplay before the onset of a serious man-crush. It seemed that it would be easier for the queer students to give up their same-sex attraction than it would be to give up their attraction to privileged metro power-brokers similar to themselves. She said it was natural that they would not dignify me with any conversation. “Your very existence is offensive to them.”
The “Michelle” quoted above is crackpot singer Michelle Shocked, whom Lopez brought to the conference as a “devilish impulse.”
