Anti-gay rights senator Roy Ashbury comes out

6:45 pm - 03/09/2011
A conservative US state senator who has voted against gay rights measures during his 14 years in office has announced he is gay.


Republican Roy Ashburn came out during a radio interview in California, where he sits on the state legislature. He has been on leave since his arrest last week on suspicion of driving under the influence. Mr Ashburn said his votes reflected the way his constituents wanted him to vote, not his own “internal conflict”.

“I am gay… those are the words that have been so difficult for me for so long,” the 55-year-old divorced father-of-four told KERN radio.
 

Mr Ashburn said he felt the need to address rumours that he had visited a gay nightclub before his arrest on suspicion of drinking and driving in Sacramento on 3 March. Last year, Mr Ashburn opposed a bill to establish a day of recognition to honour murdered gay rights activist Harvey Milk. He has also voted in the statehouse against efforts to expand anti-discrimination laws and recognise out-of-state gay marriages.
Mr Ashburn, who represents California’s 18th district, said he does not plan to run for any public office after his term ends later this year.

Interesting... you are accusing me of something you are doing to me. I guess we are both on the same hole then.

No. You are still homophobic and the people arguing with you are still right. Very different holes.

Not really, I'm making an assumption, you are making an assumption. I think people who are that loud and crazy against gay marriage are hypocrites, you think I'm being a hypocrites. We are on the same boat, the same hole, difference is that I'm not attacking you or calling you anything.
rex_dart 10th-Mar-2011 03:19 am (UTC)
You are a homophobe. I informed you that you are a homophobe. Different boat; my boat is fabulous, your boat is ignorant as fuck. Stay pressed.

Is it kinda like the difference between homosexual ass sex and hetero ass sex?
baby_c15 10th-Mar-2011 03:21 am (UTC)
A. Of being a homophobe and making an assumption.
B. See A
C. Typing, not talking.

C. was not clever when you said it to me and it is still not. gb2 1997

See, the thing is that I'm gay myself, so by accusing me of the very same thing I'm accusing others you are, in fact, accusing yourself of what you are accusing me.

If you don't believe I'm gay, look at my journal, lots of femslash and femslash oriented communities. I guess I'm the very thing I'm accusing others of being.

Of that I just said... Well, now we are just talking in circles. But hey, at least somebody else made a good point about this somewhere her, that wasn't either of us.

If I could find a gif of someone literally pedaling backwards, I would be showing it to you right now.

It was the best I could do.

baby_c15 10th-Mar-2011 03:49 am (UTC)
Actually, if you read this mess you'll see that one of my very first response was saying that I know it's a shitty way to think and I knew I was wrong.
chaya 10th-Mar-2011 03:52 am (UTC)
Oh, gurl, we've all read it.

And copping up to 'it's a shitty way to think' and then flipping out when someone tells you it's not just shitty but homophobic? Not exactly graceful.
kitschaster 10th-Mar-2011 03:52 am (UTC)
And you should have stopped there, but you didn't. And it's hilarious.

THREE LEVELS DEEP!

This is absolutely killing me. I am going to die from laughing at this.
