A new intolerance visits Provincetown: Police say gays accused of slurs (Adrienne P. Samuels, July 14, 2006, Boston Globe)

Town leaders here are holding a public meeting today to air concerns about slurs and bigoted behavior. And this time, they say, it's gay people who are displaying intolerance.

Police say they logged numerous complaints of straight people being called ``breeders" by gays over the July Fourth holiday weekend. Jamaican workers reported being the target of racial slurs. And a woman was verbally accosted after signing a petition that opposed same-sex marriage, they said.

The town, which prizes its reputation for openness and tolerance, is taking the concerns seriously, though police say they do not consider the incidents hate crimes.

Breeder eh? Them's fighting words pardner.

As Rush frequently comments, the left is so much more amusing when they're out of power.

"Breeder", huh? Not much of an insult, but I guess we need a catchy chant.

"What do we want?"
"When do we want them?"

Hmm, not quite.

"One, two, three, four;
Have a kid, then have some more."


"No breeding, no peace."

I know:

"You waste your seed.
We use ours to breed.
Get used to it."

I was thinking more along the lines of:

"We're straight;
We're great;
Get used to it."

Considering that homosexuals don't breed well outside the closet, were do these aging [slurs deleted] think their next pool boy with the nice ass is going to come from? Just wait until the "gay gene" is easily indenified and "breeders" start exercising their "choices", too. We'll finally see what kind of abortion the Dems will ban.

And this would tend to explain Excitable Andi Sullivan's behavior of the last couple years, too.

Raoul: It's not genetic.

Bart, that's not what the gays tell you. They're convinced it's genetic. I've read studies that suggest homosexuality is a congenital abnormality similar to other birth defects, and one recently printed Canadian study found a correlation between the number of fraternal births and homosexuality suggesting that environmental factors have little to do with sexual orientation.

Raoul, exactly what I was thinking. The brother of of my best friend is an "in your face" gay man who's public behavior is similar to those "Act-Up" cretins. He refers to us heterosexual folk as "breeders" and when the first studies came out supporting a genetic origin for sexual orientation he ran about telling everyone that "God made him that way" and all of us "Jesus freak breeders" have to shut up and accept him the way he is. I finally told him that in fact we didn't. That it was our duty as good Christians to help him, and that meant establishing a foundation for the cure of homosexuality and maybe fund it with annual telethons, after all it's a genetic defect like Down's Syndrome. He was not amused.

Mr. Modean:
The homosexuals, like everyone else, are far from united over what precisely causes homosexuality. Remember in 2004 when Howard Dean got into so much trouble with the gay community for saying that there's a gay gene? Like you say, if it's a genetic aberration, then it can be cured and they don't want that.
But I've had so many homosexuals and "breeders" and liberals and conservatives all make the case for nature AND nurture that I've become convinced that most people don't have any idea what they're talking about.
