Default Gay Panic! Aaaaahh!

"I have a wife!"


'A Republican politician has been called on to resign after he halted a House committee meeting to remind a Democrat colleague that placed a hand on his arm he's not gay.
Mr Metcalfe also used his interjection to urge Mr Bradford to seek out someone within his own party if he wanted to feel the touch of another man.
The interruption came seemingly out of nowhere, with Pennsylvania Democrat Matt Bradford part-way through a spirited spiel on land use when he was called out for the arm touch.
"Look, I'm a heterosexual - I have a wife," Metcalfe began. "I love my wife, I don't like men as you might. Stop touching me all the time."

Seriously?

'Mr Metcalfe was so angry at being touched by another man he stormed out of the meeting and rushed into the nearest closet, securely closing the door.'

Mention "the beloved disciple" while you're about it.

'I have these thoughts!' 'What would my wife think of me?'

And didn't Jesus tell Peter to 'play the man?'

Mr. Metcalfe has a high disgust reflex. Maybe he needs flooding.

Yeah nah. Maybe.

I've known and seen heterosexual men touch one another's arm... that's not sexual or implicit of their gayness!

So this politician is emphasising homophobia, kind of, isn't he?

Absolutely. It's fear and paranoia. Which is what homophobia means.

No. I think he's too timid of manly touches. He uses homophobic tone as an excuse to fight for life in an epic sense from the instantaneous and ephemeral, simple and candid reach of the other man's hand. What do you think?

Not sure what you mean. Only thing I can think of besides homophobia is he doesn't like to be touched.Maybe he wasn't touched or hugged much by his parents. I knew a man like that.
Why would he feign homophobia though at the risk of losing his job?
