The Partisan Idiocy of Homophobic Lesbians

There is NO doubt about the fact that former New York City Council Speaker (not to mention rabid Hillary supporter and Gov. Cuomo shill) Christine Quinn used the sexual orientation of gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon as a homophobic slur when she called her an “unqualified lesbian”, a day after the actress announced she’s going to challenge the Governor Andy Cuomo in a primary.

What makes this noteworthy is that Christine Quinn is herself an out lesbian.

One has to ask yourself why a person who has undoubtedly suffered as a member of an oppressed minority would say something like that to another person who has suffered as a member of the same oppressed minority?

To ME (another member of the aforementioned oppressed minority, so I get to talk...) it has less to do with homophobia (although the comment clearly was) and everything to do with someone who was oppressed getting a leg up and then turning around and spitting on those who supported her.  

Its the same as how "reformed" smokers or alcoholics and/or "born again" Christians act towards people who still smoke, drink and don't "believe", but supported them in their "reformation".  

In other words, to steal a comment from certain Black activists, she is a lesbian "Uncle Tom".

She also, apparently, is a vengeful bitch with a long memory.  Back in 2013 Cynthia Nixon didn't support her fellow lesbian in her bid for Mayor of NYC and endorsing Bill de Blasio (maybe it was because of de Blasio's fake lesbian wife...  I don't know).  

Whatever the reason, Quinn now says of Nixon,

“Cynthia Nixon was opposed to having a qualified lesbian become mayor of New York City. Now she wants an unqualified lesbian to be the governor of New York. You have to be qualified and have experience. She isn’t qualified to be the governor”.

In response Ms. Nixon scored a WHOLE BUNCHA points, IMO:

“Her being a lesbian and my being a lesbian is not the issue, the race is about “the corruption in Albany. It’s time for an outsider. I’m not an Albany insider.”

She went on to say Cuomo had gotten nearly all of his $30 million in donations from corporate and special interests and virtually none from small donors and grassroots supporters.

I'd personally add that he is also a shill for Israeli interests (proven by his unconstitutional actions in support of Israeli interests and his sycophantic visits to Israel... not that de Blasio is a damn bit better), the on-going federal investigations & ethics probes and his history of corruption & political dirty tricks (like HIS homophobic dirty trick that he pulled as his dad's campaign manager.  Remember the pro-Cuomo "VOTE CUOMO, NO THE HOMO" mailer???)

how odd.  

I hadn't heard that "unqualified lesbian" comment but it IS weird.  why would anyone - particularly an experienced pol - say something so totally beside the point and even totally provocative?   and what's so especially stupid is the prospective candidate IS unqualified.  so throw in "lesbian" - just because.....like dotting the i or something.  only being a lesbian isn't dotting any i's.  it's just - well...you're a lesbian.  okay.

I suppose this was because most of us assume that unqualified lesbians are so rare that if you find a lesbian who isn’t it’s noteworthy. 

That’s as nice a theory as I can come up with. 

Just to be clear, I don’t think Quinn deserves a nice theory. 

And I agree, she’s sort of a lesbian equivalent to Clarence Thomas.

koshersalaami, I hope you realize that your comment is every bit as homophobic as Quinn's was.

Shoot, we all know it's dog whistle to scare people away from voting for her. First make sure everyone knows she's a lesbian, which a lot of people find suspect even if they're not totally aware that they do, then throw in "unqualified" which is the same as saying a woman looks tired to ruin her career. And POOF! it's over.

The fact is that like, for example, blacks, lesbians must be ten times more qualified than their competitors to be taken seriously, much less given the same amount of fair attention or acclaim. I believe that strongly, and while I am no expert on Nixon's oeuvre she has certainly been an over achiever and perhaps will be the anti-Schwarzenegger, which would be GREAT to see.

"In other words, to steal a comment from certain Black activists, she is a lesbian"Uncle Tom"."

Harriet Tubman is reputed to have led over 100 slaves to freedom.

She said she might have been able to free 100 more if they knew they were slaves.

She always carried a firearm...

Ostensibly it was to defend herself against runaway slave catchers...

However, the guns had another purpose. Tubman had no compunction about shooting turncoats and snitches...

Yes, Amy, but mine was flippant. Hers was real.
