Christian author says “perverted” Mayor Pete signals “death rattle of a nation”

Bert Farias, left. Via Twitter. As Mayor Pete Buttigieg continues on the campaign trail, hot off the heels of his big win in Iowa and a strong showing in New Hampshire, right-wing nutbags continue to lose their minds. The latest example: Christian author Bert Farias, who penned a lengthy homophobic essay slamming Buttigieg and obsessing over his sexuality. Farias penned columns for the far-right Christian site Charisma News as well as for his own personal website, referring to Mayor Pete as “...

CNN anchor rips into homophobe on live TV

CNN host Jim Sciutto was not having any of conservative pundit Ben Ferguson’s homophobic nonsense when he appeared on his show this week. While talking about Rush Limbaugh’s recent remarks on Pete Buttigieg’s sexual orientation, Ferguson defended the right-wing radio host by implying Buttigieg’s “masculinity” was inferior to Donald Trump’s. “I don’t think it matters that he’s gay,” said Ferguson. “I think that the thing that you are talking about here is two different issues. One, is anyone goi...

Buttigieg “saddened” by woman who wanted her vote back because he’s gay

Pete Buttigieg (Photo: NBC/YouTube) Democratic Presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg talked about how his sexuality may play with some voters in an interview with NBC’s Meet The Press yesterday.

This just in: Christian extremist Dave Daubenmire wants $867 trillion for the “crotch shots” he was forced endure he tuned into last Sunday’s Super Bowl halftime show featuring gay icons Jennifer Lopez and Shakira. “I want to sue them,” Daubenmire rages in a video posted to his social media channels this week. “I want to sue them for about 867 trillion dollars!” According to Daubenmire, the halftime performance, during which the Latina pop sensations gave the gays everything they wanted wit...

Trump supporters clogged Iowa caucus phone line with prank calls to try and hack results

Pete Buttigieg likely won the Iowa caucus on Monday night, though the jury is technically still out. Unfortunately, he was robbed of the opportunity to fully celebrate his historic achievement because of a delay in the official results. Initially, it was believed the delay was due to a malfunction in the mobile app being used track results malfunctioning. But it turns out, that’s not the only reason. Now, the chaos is also being attributed to Trump supporters intentionally flooding the phone ho...

This tweet from Chasten Buttigieg will make you ugly cry

The results of the Iowa caucuses are still trickling in. So far, only 71 percent of the vote has been announced. As of right now, Pete Buttigieg is leading with 27%, followed by Bernie Sanders at 25%, and Elizabeth Warren at 18%, though those numbers could easily change as more data is released. Despite the jury still being out, Buttigieg declared victory in Iowa on Monday night, telling supporters in Des Moines: “We are going on to New Hampshire victorious!” When the 2020 hopeful received push...

Iowa woman loses it after voting for Mayor Pete and then learning… he’s gay!?!?

As the nation eagerly awaits last night’s results out of Iowa, one woman has become a viral laughing stock after voting for Pete Buttigieg and then trying to retract her vote after learning he’s gay. The clip made its way around Twitter and Reddit early this morning. It opens with the unidentified woman–who, it should be noted, is wearing Amy Klobuchar buttons–shrieking “Are you saying that he has the same-sex partner? Pete?!” Nikki van den Heever, a caucus precinct captain, does her best to st...

GOP lawmakers want to ban Pride and trans flags on public buildings

(Photo: Foreign and Commonwealth Office, licensed via CreativeCommons 2.0) Republican lawmakers in Iowa have introduced legislation to ban public buildings or spaces flying any flags other than patriotic ones. The legislation, introduced by Sens. Roby Smith (R-Davenport), and Jake Chapman (R-Adel), stipulates the only flags allowed to fly should be the US flag, the State of Iowa flag, the prisoner of war and missing in action (POW/MIA) flag, plus official flags for political subdivisions that...

Buttigieg campaign cancels fundraiser at gay bar over a stripper pole

A Rhode Island gay bar has criticized Pete Buttigieg’s presidential campaign after it canceled a fundraiser at the venue over the presence of a “dancer pole,” aka a stripper pole. Chasten Buttigieg, Pete’s Twitter-savvy husband, was scheduled to headline the event at the Dark Lady in Providence but backed out the day-of when the club said it would not remove the pole. “We had sent pictures of the club, they knew exactly what the place looked like,” said Buck Asprinio, owner of the Dark Lady. “W...

Gay black lives mattered more than ever in the 2010s

As we enter into the roaring ’20s, Queerty is looking back on the last 10 years of culture in our “Decade of Decadence” series. We’ve seen an explosion in queer representation in film and TV, music, politics, and on social media. We’ve grown more aware of intersectionality, gender identity, and sexual fluidity and we’ve seen major social and political advancements across the globe. It’s been wild, wonderful decade, and we can hardly wait to see what the next one has in store. Do you remember wh...

Pete Buttigieg personally phones journalist who called him a “lying MF”

“I don’t think I’ve ever been called a ‘lying motherf*cker’ before.” Those were the first words Pete Buttigieg said to Michael Harriot at The Root after he published an op-ed titled “Pete Buttigieg Is a Lying MF” earlier this week. The op-ed, published Monday, criticized remarks the 2020 hopeful made back in 2011 when he was first running for mayor of South Bend, Indiana.

New dating app will only reveal photos if you and other user share interests

A tech entrepreneur is launching a dating app he claims will be different: It will keep photos blurred until it knows you and a potential match have things in common. S’More has been developed by Adam Cohen-Aslatei, the former Managing Director of gay dating app, Chappy. He says it will work differently to apps that give you dozens of different photos to swipe or scroll through. Instead, this one will serve you five profiles a day and photos will be blurred (it will be free to use but if you pa...

Alleged gay ally Meghan McCain dismisses Pete Buttigieg’s historic campaign as “sparkly, shiny object”

A new CNN poll released over the weekend found Pete Buttigieg, the first openly gay man ever to run for President of the United States, leading the field in Iowa. And nobody is less impressed by this than The View co-host Meghan McCain. When Joy Behar said she thought Buttigieg had a real shot at winning the Democratic nomination in 2020, citing his service in Afghanistan, his moderate policies, his traditional values, and the fact that he would be a historic candidate, McCain, who is John McCa...

So, Pete Buttigieg Annoys His Competition

I find that amusing. Especially when his competitors immediately go to his lack of Washington experience. There is absolutely no necessary correlation whatsoever between experience and expertise. That’s a well-researched conclusion. My wife, an elementary school teacher, came home one day with an anecdote from a teachers’ workshop. The speaker told the story of someone wanting a position as elementary coach because she had twenty years of elementary school experience. Her principal refused, but...

GOP keynote speaker calls Buttigieg ‘Mayor Pete Buttplug’

Well, this is charming. A right-wing internet radio personality who was hired as a keynote speaker at a GOP fundraiser has come under new scrutiny after referring to Pete Buttigieg as “Mayor Pete Buttplug.” To add injury to insult, Dave Daubenmire followed up his idiotic nickname by professing “We need to make homosexuality unthinkable again.” AdBridg.cmd.push(function() { AdBridg.display("div-gpt-ad-inarticle1"); }); While the internet ramblings of a man who goes by “Coach Dave” (shudder) m...

Crotchety politician rants about “queers,” says straight white men have “very few rights”

Warren Hurst is a county commissioner from Sevier County, Tennessee. He’s also a homophobe who casually drops gay slurs at work. And he’s very, very sensitive. Yesterday, Hurst exploded into anger at a public meeting over whether to become a gun sanctuary city. Speaking with a toothpick hanging from his mouth, he raged: “It’s time we wake up people, it’s been time, it’s past time.

‘The Politician’ and the politics of race, gender, and sexuality

There’s a scene early in the new Netflix series The Politician that kept nagging and gnawing at me every time the comedy-drama introduced a new LGBTQ character – and there were at least seven in season one’s eight episodes. First and foremost of them was Payton Hobart, a sexually fluid high-school senior and aspiring U.S. President played by Tony-winning Broadway star Ben Platt. Bob Balaban and a gorgeously maternal Gwyneth Paltrow portrayed his adoptive parents, so he had a lot to aspire to. H...

From the Atlantic's James Fallows. . . to Pete Buttigieg

In the Fall of Rome, Good News for America. The October Atlantic just arrived and I was immediately intrigued by James Fallows fascinating article. Actually, it's a response to Peter Mellon's, The World of Late Antiquity and the new book, Walter Scheidel's Escape from Rome. Fallows argues that though the US government is essentially sterile and self-paralyzed, he's found a terrific amount of resilience in state and local governments. In fact, he's found that state and local g...

Harris, Warren and Biden Are Going to Get Eaten Alive by Trump

Most Democrats assume that Harris or Biden--and perhaps Warren--can beat Trump in a debate. The fact of the matter is that in a debate there's a high potential that all three of these lawyers will get eaten alive by Trump. The successful prosecution of both Barr and Biden by Harris, many also think, is illustrative of what she can do with Trump. That's profoundly flawed thinking. The problem with all four of them (Barr included) is that they work on the basis of lawyerly assumptions. Wha...

Figuring Out the 2020 Candidates by Counting Words

Back in 2004 Pete Buttigieg, his Harvard Colleague, Ganesh Sitaraman, along with Peter Emerson wrote an intriguing, fun article suggesting that by counting the number of words in the party platform, you could figure out who would win the presidential election. The smaller the page count, the more potential for winning the election. They surfaced a great deal of examples to support their proposal. They found that since 1960 the average page count of the Democrats' platforms in losing years w...
