Dan Savage Has Had Enough Santorum

From Slog:

Remember when Ann Coulter apologized for her liberal-bashing books Godless, Treason, and Demonic? Or when Jonah Goldberg apologized for Liberal Fascism? Or when Michele Bachmann apologized for suggesting that the media investigate liberal members of Congress for their anti-Americanism? Or when Rick Santorum apologized for comparing same-sex couples who want to marry to Islamist terrorists who want to kill Americans?

Yeah, me neither.

Conservatives beat up, impugn, and slam liberals all the time. And conservatives make their attacks personal because their policies are unpopular and they'll always have an easier time running on "Who you'd wanna have a beer with?" So they beat up and brutalize their opponents. Because they're bullies. And like all bullies, they react with shock and sputtering rage when someone they're beating the shit out of has the nerve to swing back at 'em.

For the record: Rick Santorum is America's leading anti-gay bully. He wants to reinstate DADT, ban gay people from adopting children, split up bi-bational gay couples—he wants to prevent a gay person from being at his partner's bedside during a medical emergency, for Christ's sake, because perversions like that somehow undermines straight marriage.

But while we're on the subject of traditional families: I support families with mothers and fathers. Hell, I'm the product of one of those traditional families. (And I believe in raising children—those barbarians aren't going to raise themselves.) I also support families with fathers and fathers, families with mothers and mothers, and families with just a mom or just a dad. Support for families isn't a zero-sum game: support for gay families takes nothing away from straight families. Rick Santorum is the hateful douche who's out there telling people that you can't support one kind of family without taking a shit on all other kinds.

You tell him, Dan.
