Coburn Aide: Playboy Makes You Gay!



At the Values Voter Summit, Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn’s chief of staff Michael Schwartz, a veteran conservative activist, said:

“All pornography is homosexual pornography because all pornography turns your sexual desires inward.”

He says this is a quote from someone who supposedly has a hospice for AIDS patients, but Schwartz comes up with some interesting comments, as well. He thinks the comment was “insightful.”

“Pornography is a blight. It is a disaster. It is one of those silent diseases in our society that we haven’t been able to overcome very well. Now, I may be getting politically incorrect here. And it’s been a few years, but not that many, since I was closely associated with pre-adolescent boys, boys around 10 years of age. But it is my observation that boys of that age have less tolerance for homosexuality than just about any other class of people. They speak badly about homosexuality. And that’s because they don’t want to be that way. They don’t want to fall into it.”

How closely was he associated with boys around 10 and why was he discussing this particular subject?

They are not less tolerant – they just don’t want to be accused of it and they have been educated by idiots like Coburn who thinks lesbianism is running rampant in southeastern Oklahoma girl’s restrooms.

They don’t want to be acused of it because of the abuse – even if they are gay.

“Now, think about that,” said Schwartz. “And if you tell an 11-year-old boy about that, do you think he’s going to want to get a copy of Playboy? I’m pretty sure he’ll lose interest. That’s the last thing he wants! You know, that’s a good comment, it’s a good point, and it’s a good thing to teach young people.”

Playboy makes you gay? They are going completely bat-shit crazy.

True story: I have a close relative who was born after I graduated from high school and when he was about five, on the way home from church, he announced he would like to buy a Playboy but he didn’t have enough money.

We asked what was in it, and he said, “Pictures.”

We asked pictures of what and he said, “women.”

We asked if they were ugly women and he said, “No.”

We asked where he saw the magazines and he said, “Julio’s daddy has a whole stack of them.”

He started at five and he just turned 45 and shows no signs of being gay.

We all need to call Coburn’s office 202.224.5754.

The Observer carries on the "give 'em hell" tradition of its founder, the late Frosty Troy. I read it from cover to cover. A progressive wouldn't be able to live in a red state without it.
