Savage to Cain: Blow Me. Literally.

This article was viewed 4,193 times

There are benign levels of homophobia and then there are the instances that hit Dan Savage’s radar. Mr. Savage, sex columnist, author and co-founder of the It Gets Better Project, is probably the most outspoken and well-known gay rights activists today. Unfortunately for the equally vociferous moralizers and zealots, he does not take kindly to any assertions that homosexuality is a deviant or depraved lifestyle and his retribution is as swift as it is merciless. Just ask Rick Santorum. If there really was a Rainbow Mafia, Dan Savage would be its Don Corleone, ordering media hits on every bigot pushing their anti-gay agenda.

The latest presidential hopeful to fall afoul of Mr. Savage is Herman Cain, who, in an interview with Piers Morgan claimed that homosexuality was both a sin (per the bible) and a choice. When asked to elaborate on why exactly someone would choose to be gay, Mr. Cain employed the classic “table turn” method and asked for scientific proof that sexual orientation was innate and not a choice. Thus the righteous Savage eye fell upon Herman Cain.

In his blog, Mr. Savage offered himself up as a guinea pig for a science experiment that even the most devout moralizer would be unable to refute:

Dear Herman,

If being gay is a choice, show us the proof. Choose it. Choose to be gay yourself. Show America how that’s done, Herman, show us how a man can choose to be gay. Suck my dick, Herman. Name the time and the place and I’ll bring my dick and a camera crew and you can suck me off and win the argument.
Very sincerely yours,

Dan Savage

Well! The gauntlet has certainly been thrown. Though no word yet on how far Mr. Cain is willing to go for God and science.

    LOLOLOL!! Nice!!! Your counter argument Mr. Cain? Yyyeeaaahhh….that’s what I though. Dan, you are my kind of guy. Figuratively of course. Not literally, because you are gay will never be shopping in the vag aisle. But I would go shopping in the peen aisle with you! That would be fun!!

      Dan Savage was my first celeb sighting after I moved back to Seattle. It was a nice welcome home (even if we’re both batting for the same team).

      Good Morning Mr. Cain,I want to acknowledge the extocpienal level of service I consistently receive from Holly Swan. Her approach is to keep it simple for me. I don’t like to search for items and sometimes there are so many selections that I can’t find what I need. A quick electronic chat with Holly and she provides multiple options for me. When needed she calls me to get an understanding as to how I will use the item and then she always gives me excellent recommendations. She always offers to place the order for me and it’s done. I can get back to work. I find her to be the exception in today’s retail environment which tends to disappoint when it comes to service. I do hope you acknowledge and compensate her well for her superior level of customer service. i really appreciate her and she’s the reason I stay with your company. FYI Staples is always trying to steal us away but I tell them about Holly and that we are not interested. JanMorris Architects
