Mainstream media outlets around the world are wet with tears over the death of 87-year-old lesbian activist Del Martin. I simply don’t care. Not that I wish death on this woman. I’m sure, during the course of her life, she was a fine WNBA fan, loyal barber shop brush-cut customer, skilled wearer of “comfortable shoes”, enthusiastic maven of “personal electronics”, and adoring attendee at the Dinah Shore Classic.
But that’s not what strikes me about her. What I found funny were the photos of Martin’s wedding to fellow lesbo, Phyllis Lyon, in June. If I were the people campaigning against gay marriage in California, these photos would be my campaign ads. I’d just keep the picture on the screen for 30 seconds with the line, “THIS IS GAY MARRIAGE.”
I’m thinkin’ the only thing more sexy than this would be a photo of Helen Thomas and Madeleine Albright. Hot, hot, hot.
The Island of Lesbos called. It wants its name back.
Exit Question: How many of these types are delegates at the DNC?
