"Lady G" !!!!!

I have 99 problems with Lindsey Graham and whether he's gay or not ain't one of them. Particularly because if he is - he hasn't come out, and because being gay doesn't make him or any crime he's involved with worse.

Please, we're DU and sexuality is just one thing they slur people over that we don't or shouldn't.

While I don't use stuff like that, the younger crowd is hard on Graham's anti-LGBTQ stance and calls out his hypocrisy.

At this point, they are at the Zero Fucks stage. TikTok has thousands of savage content providers.

... when my son and his husband used it. They mocked him viciously with their exaggerated Plantation Belle accents... it was hysterical. They don't care that he's gay. It's his hypocrisy and so much more, and unfortunately something like that isn't accurately reflected in a very simplistic narrowly focused clickbait binary poll.

to be included in family camp. That is similar to a white person who is related to a black person being included in a conversation in which the N-word is liberally thrown around.

That doe NOT make it acceptable for you (not a member of the LGBT community) to use it or condone its use as an insult outside of the circle of which you are an honorary member.

I dislike him in a serious way, but if his orientation is not the issue here. What I fear is Trump is blackmailing him with something regarding his sexuality which makes Trump the toad I know him to be. Lindsay's sexuality is none of our business. And the decision to come out is so damn personal. Outing someone should be a crime.

DU went nuts with excitement over it that it was going to bring graham down but... and here is a shocker... it turns out some rando on twitter proclaiming that They had info to bring down a senator was full of shit.

But despite that the nickname stuck on here.

Just trying to provide some background info on where that came from. The lease correct me if I have the details wrong.

Yep and the LGBT community has a vernacular that is used within the community but is not appropriate outside of it. There are even sub-communities (in this case male sex workers) that have their own vernacular.

There is a lot of camp and self depreciation in some of the vernacular due to internalized homophobia and the realities of the LGBT community. It needs to be seen in the historical and communal reality before judging it (much like the N word).

41. Correct.

In the same way that blacks sometimes use the N-word within their community - it's called reclaiming it, and use in that manner does not give the outside world permission to use it to insult someone. (Even if you happen to be close enough to someone in the LGBT commmunity to be included on the "in" language - you still don't have permission to use it outside of that community (or even within that community with folks who have not given you express or implied permission to do so).)

155. IMHO, l don't think it was a publicity thing...

... I think he probably was motivated by the desire to try and do something good like exposing a hypocritical Lindsey Graham, but ended up realizing that in a town that wields privacy -and exposure- like a sword, and uses secrecy as currency, he had no choice but to step back out of the spotlight. In other words, his career as a confidential sex worker would be over.

And no, absolutely nothing wrong with sex workers. They should be legalized, recognized, unionized, and organized.

21. Being gay does matter. But not in a negative sense. If he is gay it's part of who he is and...

His overall experience. Our experience informs our decision making process. Bigotry and discrimination toward anyone is not ok.

I do think his being closeted (if he is) is an issue because it opens him up to being blackmailed. He is in far too of an important position to risk that.

I would like to see that hypocritical jackass out of government because he is a spineless toady little weasel. That dumbfuck could actually do the LGBTQ community a lot of good if only he was true to his own sexuality. Instead, he fights against them to appease the RW religious bigots.

64. I really don't think Lindsey's election interference has anything to with his sex life/orientation

It is not a crime to be gay, so any exposure would not justify election interference.
He was just re-elected, so he would not have to worry about his "losing an election" for six years.

I really don't think anything going on with possible pictures has anything to do with what he is doing with this election interference.
Even if there were pictures, at the most, Lindsey would just be embarassed and "get over it"...seriously...he would then say, "This is none your business"

We see much worse out there and it doesn't move the the needle.
America has moved beyond this.
We had a gay Republican run for congress here in San Antonio. Not only is he gay, he owns the largest gay nightclub in town. He won the primary from a large field of candidates. I'm sure there are pictures, but no one asked or cared. He won the "family values" crowd.
America has moved on.

Look at Kyle Biedermann in Texas.

For Lindsey Graham, being gay IS an insult. Thus when we, gays, call him out on it, it isn't that we are feeling negative about our own sexuality, but Lindsey sure does. . . . . Lindsey is one of the biggest homophobes out there and was never for marriage equality. Pointing out Lindsey's hypocrisy makes absolute sense to me. As I wrote above, we aren't the homophobes. If we say there is a problem calling him out on it, I find THAT homophobic by implying there is something wrong with being gay.

... someone by insinuating he/she is gay. Someone's sexuality is no one's business if they haven't put it out on the street themselves. Whatever crimes Lindsey Graham has committed have nothing to do with his sexuality. Being antigay in attitude is one thing. Using slurs to demean someone is something else. His being gay or not has nothing to do with his crimes.

Don't you think there is a problem with implying his being gay makes his crimes worse somehow, isn't that homophobic?

You've told me you're gay, is it alright (I know it's not) for me to refer to you as Lady BigDem Voter if you object? Is it better or worse if I did that if I didn't know you were gay?

And we won't talk about the insensitivity toward the transgendered who get hit with the wrong gender pronouns intentionally, or the added implication on demeaning women by implying it is an insult to refer to men as 'lady'.

Put simply: our mothers taught us not to name call. This Lady G crap is name-calling and hateful on top of it.

148. Strawman poll ...

"A straw poll or straw vote is an ad hoc or unofficial vote. It is used to show the popular opinion on a certain matter, and can be used to help politicians know the majority opinion and help them decide what to say in order to gain votes. Straw polls provide dialogue among movements within large groups."

If this is what you mean, yes it is.

"Presumably". When has Lindsey Graham EVER said he had a "nom-de-guerre"?

In that 99% of those polled agree with me, how am I "accusing DUers en masse"?

BTW - this one of the most responded to polls I've seen here in years.

Don't get me wrong. I think he needs to be jailed for what he tried to with the vote in Georgia, Arizona, and other states.

But we try to maintain civility following the ToS and it works.

149. I never call him Lady G, but I don't take offense when others do.

146. I had no idea what this title meant, no frame of reference at all

I was even asked to sit on a DU jury the other day and had to recuse myself because I was clueless about this one.

147. At least some of the prison rape stuff gets hidden now...

Attributing feminine qualities to men people don't like, almost always stands around here. I'm a straight white female, and I will not use language that doesn't belong to me. Lots of people complain about political correctness, especially when they're the ones dishing out the insults.

Graham is a sniveling lowlife coward who has zero morals and doesn't give one damn about us or our country. He's now trying to strongarm Sec of States into illegal acts. I want him prosecuted in both public opinion and the courts, but no need to attribute feminine traits to him as an insult. Nothing wrong with being feminine, no matter how you identify.

151. Another thing I just don't understand from some DUers. Rape. Extrajudicial punishment. ...

Inmates as our representatives in the application of extrajudicial punishment.

I just don't get it.

157. Of course it's a homophobic/transphobic slur.

It's also misogynistic.

Graham is a racist POS, but using homophobic/transphobic/misogynistic slurs in reference to him is bigotry and is totally not cool.
