Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, February 13, 2020

Pete Buttigieg, a.k.a. "Mayor Pete," is the only millennial candidate in the 2020 race"and if elected, he'd be the youngest president in American history. Despite his youth and local experience, a loyal band of supporters have gathered around the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, who is openly gay and married to husband Chasten Glezman (who now goes by Chasten Buttigieg on social media).

An openly gay President would be an eye opening challenge for millions of Americans and billions of other people around the world. The levels of homophobia throughout pretty much the entire world are difficult to underestimate. How would Arab or Asian leaders handle it on State visits? How would macho latino culture deal with it throughout South America. Africa? Australia? Let's be honest. There are strong currents of hatred towards gay men throughout the entire world. I think President Buttigieg might have as radical an effect on influencing perceptions as Obama had.

I dunno. First a black Pres, a major step forward, and now possibly a gay male President, which would be another step up the white male tolerance scale.

There'll likely be a male Martian Pres before a woman ever gets the job.

#4 is oblivious, in general, yes, but on topic totally oblivious to the history in the US of political conservative's derision and intolerance of gays.

Well, except for the toe-tappers in public restrooms they elect.

How do you quadruple the seating at a gay bar? Turn the stools upside down.
