The Italian (Nut) Job

Well, the good news is that we're not alone when it comes to douchy politicians taking crazy-town homophobic stands in a desperate attempt to cling to relevancy. Check this out.
Above: No, not this. This is just an unrelated picture of former
Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, here for no particular reason at all.
If you didn't click, and I know you didn't, you would have read about Gianluca Buonanno, the Italian mayor who wants to ban gay people from being all gay and shit and kissing in public. You know, because of the children:
Move over drugs and rap music!

"I don't like two people of the same sex making public displays of affection. It's a question of respect. And I'm convinced that it's also morally harmful for children."

-Mayor Gianluca Buonanno, 
reminding us all that Italy 
did kind of invent fascism 

Here's some more of the gaycist balderdash that dribbled from his pasta-hole:*

"Baci in pubblico tra omosessuali? No grazi. Non solo. Da oggi nei miei uffici di sindaco e parlamentar europeo oltre al crocifisso ci sarĂ  la foto di Putin." 

-Gianluca Buonanno, 
Il testa di cazzo
*What? Italy is like famous for being into pasta...
Here's Buonanno waving a fish around
during a session of the European Parliament.
Can you believe it? No, me neither. It turns out that that gibberish he spouted is some kind of ridiculous foreign language, but even translated he still sounds like a lunatic:

"Homosexuals kissing in public? No thank you, not at all. Starting today, in my mayor's office and in my European Parliament office, there will be a photo of Putin over the crucifix."

-Gianluca Buonanno, 
the head of shit

Yeah, he's putting a photo of noted homophobe and doughy strong-man Vladimir Putin up in his office. Above Jesus.
Because there's nothing gay about that.

annual Pride celebrations wear special gear to
protect themselves from elevated gaydiation levels.
Ok, so this is probably more about media attention and less about protecting children from the high levels of gaydiation that emanate from two dudes making out, but Buonanno is picking up on an infuriating presumption among the anti-gay crowd: that their irrational discomfort with gay people somehow translates into a right to live in a gay-free world. It's sort of like if a vegan shows up at a barbecue but instead of just sticking to the quinoa salad, they kick over the grill and demand an immediate and far-reaching ban on all meat in the world forever.

I suppose what I'm getting at is that if you don't like gay-kissing, then don't kiss someone of the same sex. Why do they have to try and ruin it for everyone else? Uh, I'm talking to the homophobes here, not the vegans. Sorry, it's not the best metaphor.
Sorry vegans, I don't mean to pick on you, it's just
an example. But seriously? Seitan is pretty gross.
