NYTimes reaches a new low with breaking news about two gay guys who are Trump supporters. I mean, what makes this story even remotely interesting? We know there are people who support Trump. It’s a fact of objective reality we’ve all had two years to notice. Is it that they are gay? Well, I’ve got a newsflash: gay people are human. This means they can be super bright, super dumb, and anything in between. One would think that folks would have realized this by the end of 2018.
What’s next, two black people support Trump, so let’s write a long piece about it?
I hate this kind of thing because it is based on the assumption that gay people are not fully human and don’t have the full range of human characteristics. I also hate it because the genre of “OMG, I’m so mystified by the workings of the minds of Trump supporters” grew stale about 18 months ago.
