The Left loves throwing out all kinds of names and titles if you don’t agree with them on absolutely every single issue. Let’s run down a few of their favorites shall we:
- Religious fanatic
- Fat shamer
- Slut shamer
- Fear monger
- Science denier
Of course this isn’t even close to a comprehensive list, the Left is always coming up with new and inventive ways to go after their political opponents. And the most interesting part is that it’s always the Left who gets to decide who is and who isn’t these words.
Among their favorites to call those who disagree with them is “homophobic.” They tell us that using gay as a way to mock others is definitely against the rules and ugly, well unless of course it’s the Left that’s doing the mocking. In that case, it’s perfectly fine?
“Woke” comedian Chelsea Handler recently suggested Sen. Lindsey Graham is gay.

Why would she do something so clearly homophobic? Well, basically it boils down to him disagreeing with her on political issues. Regardless of her stupid joke, Twitter users let her know what they thought of her “joke.”
Why is there such a gulf in understanding this fact: being gay is not something to shame or embarrass someone with.
It's staggering that, at this point, people who appear to be our community's allies still don't get it.

@chelseahandler was funny for about a minute. Now she is just plain gross

Oh, I didn't realize calling someone gay was still a way we insult people in 2018.

Did you think of that quip all by yourself or was it your team of writers? #WTF it doesn’t even make sense? Why do you think it’s ok to insult people for being gay on #NationalComingOutDay #lgbt #WTF is wrong with you?

Insinuating someone is gay on Twitter and making fun of the fact they are hiding because of that fact is not ok – even if the person is Lindsey Graham. There is plenty to take him to task, like literally anything he says or does

So constantly disappointed by "allies" who turn LGBTQ identities into punchlines and sources of malevolent shame. Again and again and again.

Chelsea, such an interesting tactic, using coming out and gay shame as a punchline for a joke. And you call yourself an "advocate," and/or "ally." That is abhorrent, tactless and gauche. pic.twitter.com/cYGLgp1f0t
