Hypocrisy Runs Amok As The Gay Escort Business Pulls In A Fortune At GOP Convention

The 2016 Republican platform has been called “the most anti-LGBT platform in history” by the Log Cabin Republicans, the best known gay conservative group in the country.

The platform condemns “redefining sex discrimination to include sexual orientation or other categories,” referencing trans Americans. The platform also suggests supporting gay conversion therapy in a section drafted by Tony Perkins, an RNC delegate and president of the Family Research Council, a group which the Southern Poverty Law Center has labeled “extremist” and describes “its real specialty” as “defaming gays and lesbians.”

“We support the right of parents to determine the proper medical treatment and therapy for their minor children,” reads the section, which Time reported was initially more extreme and explicit in its original draft.

At the RNC convention in Cleveland however, the Republicans seem to have set out to prove that people like to do the things they aren’t supposed to be doing.

According to an article in New York Post, business for gay prostitutes couldn’t be better. “Business has been way better. I’ve seen 10 clients so far,” said one hustler. One gigolo who charges $250 an hour said that since Monday, when the convention kicked off, he’s been making about $800 per day. Another said he’s made $1600 in the first two days.

The clientele, along with being evidently first-timers, are described as being mostly married white guys in their 40s. “One of them was from Texas and visiting for the convention. He said he was a politician.”

Oddly, according to the article, female prostitutes aren’t doing nearly as well – with one telling the Post that business is actually slower than usual.

Also read that porn sites noticed a huge uptick in traffic from Cleveland during the convention.

2. Not that there's anything wrong with that. As far as professional gay escorts being

slammed ( no pun intended) because the RW was in town. It is definitely interesting though.

4. You're right--there's nothing wrong with it.

It's just that their hypocrisy is so damned overwhelming.

9. Of course for 'family values' types the hypocrisy lies in all prostitution, not in just the

 

gay prostitution but this OP makes it all about 'The Republicans are all gay, like all the terrorists and all the other horrible people'.

It gets so tiresome.

Do you really think family values Christians are not hypocrites if they stick to straight prostitutes?

6. It's the rank, stinking hypocrisy

of the "do as I say, not as I do" crowd.

11. Probable much more

than in Philadelphia, where the delegates who are gay can be so openly.
