"Megan McCain -- and you can quote me -- is less attractive than Jamie Kirchick"

Yeah, I know Smitty's already taken a whack at this particular pinata, but it was the New Republic's Jamie Kirchick -- my favorite gay Jewish writer -- who conducted the Out magazine interview, and since she's kinfolk, I figure I deserve a few whacks of my own.

And, unlike Meghan, Jamie is attractive. This I state as a journalist describing an objective fact since, as a married father of six, my hetero bona fides are beyond reproach. (Ignore that legion of online amateur psychologists shouting "overcompensation!")

"Does it sound campy to say I love gay men?" says Meghan in typical fag-hag fashion, since this is the only way she has of getting affection from men.

What Meghan does not fully comprehend is the special contempt that exists within gay male culture for such desperate female hangers-on otherwise known as fish. Very simple questions, Meg:
  • If they actually like women, why are they gay?
  • What makes you think you are the exception to the rule?

Lesbian culture is more honest. Lesbians don't hesitate to identify men as the enemy. Some are more tolerant than others, but there is no analog in lesbian culture for the fag hag. You don't see straight guys "hanging out" with their lesbian friends. The straight guy who walks into a dyke bar is an unwelcome presence, and may be asked to leave.

Women hanging around the gay disco, however, is a very familar phenomenon. And the belief of some women that they have a special friendship with their gay male friends is a myth.

Let me disabuse you ladies of your naivete: A reasonably attractive young gay man has no problem getting with two or three guys a night. And that's if he's really picky. (Read And The Band Played On, by Randy Shilts.) So when some lonely, frustrated woman wants to hang around with gay guys because it's the only male companionship she can get, she is recognized for the truly pathetic loser she is.

Show of hands: Who thinks Meghan McCain has the slightest inkling of the things her gay "friends" say behind her back?

Uh, I'm guessing Jamie Kirchick didn't raise his hand. In this, as in everything else, Meghan is clueless. And it is her cluelessness, nearly as much as her bitchy desperation, that makes her so unattractive. Look at this:

“Homophobia is the last socially accepted prejudice,” McCain says, repeating it for emphasis.
It's not true. It's just a politically correct slogan, dependent on a dubious pseudoscientific term, "homophobia." Grant that there are genuinely intolerant people in the world, in what sense does opposition to a political agenda -- and her support for same-sex marriage is the chief topic of the interview -- constitute a "phobia," an irrational pathology?

And if homophobia (whatever that means) is so "socially acceptable," then why did Ann Coulter get raked over the coals for calling John Edwards a "faggot"? Coulter was actually making reference to a celebrity imbroglio involving the cast of Grey's Anatomy, and defended herself: "I would never insult gays by suggesting that they are like John Edwards. That would be mean."

Still, even though liberals have spent years calling Coulter a "tranny" -- which is "socially acceptable" as a putdown, because they're liberal and she's not -- even though there is zero evidence that she is actually hostile to homosexuals, merely by saying the word "faggot" out loud, she was deemed worthy of banishment from the CPAC main stage.

Yet Meghan thought her little slogan was so important she repeated it for emphasis, so that the actual meaning was clear: "Like me! Please like me!"

Desperation, see? She's like one of these ridiculous white liberals who parade around denouncing racism as if the act of denunciation were in itself proof of moral superiority -- and proving their moral superiority is the entire purpose of such exercises.

In the end, we can only imagine the ironic thoughts that Kirchick pondered after his interview with Megan. Here he is, denied the right to marry a man. And there is Megan, who has that right -- but not a man on earth is interested in marrying her.

What a waste, eh, Jamie?


  1. God, can young conservative women please not let her be our spokesperson?

  2. Great rack though. Or is she just pushing it out for the photograph?

  3. I am still scratching my head, wondering how and why this woman all of the sudden just appeares everywhere. Has she actually accomplished anything that merits having such a voice in the media? To be honest - I dont know anything about her - am I alone?

  4. Spot-on RSM.

    When I was active in bands the fag-hags were more pathetic that the junkies [the saddest of the sad being the rich ones]. Girls like your cousin were always trying to show how open-minded they were by telling the gays over and over how indignant they felt about the way 'society' treated them and would they like to bring their 'special friend' over to the dorm to smoke some 'grass' [Wellesley girls were the worst]. Thank god for the Sweet Connies and Miss Pamela types, otherwise we would we have been stuck with these trust fund losers as the only way to ease our worried artistic minds [the Jewish gals were the most fun and that's a natural fact]. Ah youth is wasted on the stupid.

  5. I see you noticed a difference between Lesbian and Gay cultures (no "fag hag" equivalent.) I thought I'd address this a tiny bit.

    Even as the oppressed grievance group "Homosexual," gay men are still MEN. That means they CANNOT, no matter how much they might want to, exclude women from activities they might want to exclude them from. Not even being gay protects them from women's rights.

    This is what disgusts me with the 'culture' today. You can have all women bowling leagues, but have an 'all dudes' league and you're sexist. You can have an all black choir, but have an all white choir and your racist. They can exclude you on the SAME BASIS that you would get publicly DESTROYED for, and won't even get an angry glance.

    That said, the white male is currently the most oppressed and discriminated against group in America. They almost HAVE to be gay to get any traction with the other groups.

  6. "You don't see straight guys "hanging out" with their lesbian friends."

    Eh, I'd argue that. The only women I'm capable of having a friendship with are those that I know won't sleep with me under any circumstances. Perhaps that's just me.

  7. I thought I told you that 'Fag Hag' was the politically incorrect term nowadays..

    The correct terminology is 'Fruit Fly'.

  8. I am surprised that as the worldly fellow you are, you are somehow unaware of dyke daddies, the male equivalent of fag hags.

  9. It' a shame that Ms. McCain is not a redneck since in my experience they take in just about everyone. Just find a bar. You'll find people of all races, religions(backsliders)and sexual oriention (line dancers). There you'll be accepted and all you got to do is be decent to them.

    Now Ms. McCain, like many young people, has not learned that many groups have specific, inborn and unlearned characteristics that are not shared with the general public. I believe that there will always be moments when these kids will be excluded because of who they are.

    My best advice to Ms. McCain is to head to a loud redneck bar in and/or around Scottsdale and I guarantee that some nice young fella who has not a clue as to who her daddy is will offer to buy her a drink or ask her to dance. That might be her only chance to see who she really is.

  10. "How many Meghans McCain does it take to change a lightbulb?"

    "Only racist redneck breeders need lights! I just stand here and basque in the glow of gay men..."

  11. Argh, why do you always have to mention that blip in CPAC's past?

  12. I am still scratching my head, wondering how and why this woman all of the sudden just appeares everywhere. Has she actually accomplished anything that merits having such a voice in the media?
    Meghan is another in a long line of "Repub" defectors to the Left [remember when Arianna H was ranting about Dem tomfoolery?] who are instantly accorded extraordinary publicity and vaulted to the top of Memeorandum and other Leftish sites. When the opposite occurs, the MSM is completely silent.

    Meghan is, of course, a clueless ditz with looks that pass muster in a dark crowded bar after a few hits. But the Left dangles the conceit that Meghan somehow represents the INNER CHILD that her ancient father cannot expose and that she is channeling John's real political fellings.

    This pattern will continue as long as American media are in complete thrall to statist elites who wish to overthrow the Contstitution using "soft tyranny" and employing useful idiots like Meghan. In other words, expect more doucherinas like Meghan in the future.

  13. Wow, Robert! Your knowledge of the gay is deep and penetrating.

    It's a good thing you established your hetero bona fides, otherwise people might start talking.

    Who ever heard of a gay man with children? That's almost as crazy as the idea of gay preachers.

  14. Do you know what Meghan McCain considers safe sex? A padded headboard.

  15. Do you think you are thinking a bit too much about fag hags?
