what’s going on over at the bigot’s place?
There’s a charming little blog that some of you may have had the pleasure to encounter called Ask the Bigot. The blog host, Bigot, campaigns tirelessly for marriage inequality based on her experience being brought up by her loving mother and her lesbian partner.
Bigot’s blog is all about love. She loves her mum, she loves her step-mum, she loves lots of gay friends and she loves the Christian god God. Somewhere in this cosy sea of love, she hates the idea of gay people ever experiencing a committed relationship with someone they love, and is appalled by the idea of gay people ever being parents.
She sets herself up as an expert in the area of gay relationships and parenting and, oddly, she thinks her blog name is ironic. I stopped following Bigot several months back because her posts were simply too disgusting with her sickly sweet back-handed slaps at all gay people.
However, for my last post about gay marriage, she was one of the Christian blogs that I chose to ask for further information on how they suggest gay Christians live their lives in terms of romantic relationships.
She hasn’t replied, but a couple of her fawning crew (who, based on prior experience, could simply be her in another name, her editor, her editor’s husband, her own husband, or some of her husband’s congregation who have sworn loyalty to him in a signed document) had the strangest conversation around me that I thought would be nice to share.
I can only conclude that Bigot has hired a new editor with an even odder approach to dealing with unwanted input – abandoning full frontal attacks and opting for the disarming ‘distract and ramble’. The Bigot can’t speak for herself, quite clearly.
