In what many are seeing as an incredibly bold move, Michele Bachmann introduced H.R. 22973 today, also known as the âMake Gay People Stop Dressing So Silly Act of 2011.â
The bill states:
âAll people identifying as homosexual must begin mimicking the appearance of heterosexual members of their community, who are of the same sex, or face a fine of up to $5,000 or 1 year in prisonâ
The bill is expected to pass the Republican House of representatives with overwhelming support. House Speaker Boehner (R-OH) called the bill âthe most important piece of legislation we are going to pass this year, since we really have no intention of passing any other type of legislation before the election anywayâ.
Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) said âstopping the homosexual agenda from spreading is really the number one thing American families are talking about, when theyâre sitting around the dinner table discussing these types of thingsâ.
Responding to critics who say the bill is homophobic, Michele Bachmann made the following statement;
âMany men living the gay lifestyle are trying force and ram their views down our throats by dressing the way that they do. There are plenty of recovered gay men who are perfectly capable of dressing like heterosexuals, some that you would never even suspect, even if you were married to them for 23 years. You might not even know that they are a member of the gay lifestyle until the media starts pointing out little things that you never noticed before. But thatâs not the point, the point is that these people are more than capable of dressing like normal Minnesota folks, and I think the rest of America agreesâ.
Many on the left are objecting to a provision in the bill which would make possession of glitter a misdemeanor, and âglitteringâ a politician a felony punishable with a maximum sentence of life in prison.
NOM calls this bill âa major victory in correcting the mistake of âPolitical Correctnessâ, which America made in the 1900sâ.
