Politically Aligned Gays

With all the media attention about the co-founder of ManHunt donating money to McCain's Presidential campaign it really got me interested.

Now it turns out that the McCain Campaign has returned the money back saying they don;t want it.

Now there are a few important points that I want to highlight here:

It's OK to be gay and republican but only if you don't run a gay business?


Republicans don't don;t want money from gays?

It's everyones own inalienable right to choose who they support politically, of course you can choose to support someone who considers your 'lifestyle' to be abhorrent and unnatural.

That's your choice!

You know what?

It's even all the Manhunt members who do not support McCain's choice to cancel their memberships and ask for refunds. In fact so many of their members did the guy had to resign from the board.

But he still makes money from the company.

Personally I don't have a Manhunt profile but if I did I would cancel it in protest, because I don't want to be directly or indirectly supporting someone for a position of great power who believes I am a second class citizen.

I do so love the fallout from this, apparently the guy has had a TOTAL change of heart and since he got rejected by McCain he is now an Obama boy!

I immediately asked for my account to be removed from the site because even though I do not currently have a paid membership, I do not want to be associated in anyway. (As I have blogged about)

I found the discussion on this topic over at Archer Radio to be quite interesting.

If the founder of ManHunt wanted to make a donation to the candidate he was supporting that is his business and right. However, whether he is a friend, or someone I purchase something from or even have some association with, I too have the right to distance myself and as such so does anyone else.

It is all about free will.

Being that he is a public image and donations are public, he should have taken careful consideration into what he was doing.

He is still a representative of ManHunt, regardless of this being a personal donation, his behaviour reflects on those he is associated with.

Now that he has switched sides. Sorry too little too late. Actually just too late. We all know where he loyalties lie and that is sickening!

How can anyone respect hypocrisy?
