That’ll Show ‘Em

Maud links to a funny proposal to ban gay literature, which came in response to reports that Lynne Cheney’s forgotten lesbian novel was being feted again.

i don’t know about you, but i think if the cheneys are serious about stopping the spread of homosexuality, they should propose a constitutional amendment against gay literature. and definitely any gay literature set in wyoming. because if you think about it, there was no gay marriage when mary [the Cheneys’ gay daughter] was a child. and yet somehow — mysteriously — she grew up to like bearded clams. isn’t the solution simple? ban gay literature and then your kids won’t find creative uses for flashlights under the covers in their bedrooms while READING THEIR MOM’S PORNOGRAPHIC LESBOSLUT NOVELS.
