mother mary cheney
Everyone's been trying to figure out: What are we going to do with this foul-mouthed (fowl-hunting) self-loathing pregnant lesbian? The other night I caught a glimpse of sex columnist and gay adoptive father Dan Savage FUMING over this subject on a talk show. I tuned in just as he was being cut off by one of those impenetrable (smiling) conservatives who may or may not have been the lovely Janice Crouse of "Concerned Women for America." Sad to have missed what he was saying, I went online and found an amazing and tangential tirade against Ms.Crouse right in the middle of a Savage Love advice column about a cross-dresser. He makes all the great political points with characteristic spice: "...they're condemning Cheney for creating a 'fatherless' child, a child that will have no masculine role models. Have you gotten a good look at Heather Poe, Mary Cheney's partner of 15 years? My son has two fathers, but Heather's left labial lip is butcher than both of us put together." Over at the Huff Post my other favorite gay rights advocate and blogger extraordinaire, Bill Robinson chimes in,"So that's the big objection? No father? Perhaps Concerned Janice and those like her are worried something awful might happen to the fatherless child.... like becoming a lesbian."
