Portland’s Inconsolable Rage

Kevin Williamson remarks upon the poor sportsmanship of LGTBQQ* Portland Thorns soccer fans, and takes no prisoners:

One can understand Portland’s inconsolable rage. It’s a second-rate Seattle, which makes it, by extension, a fourth-rate (22) San Francisco. Which is to say: Austin without the sunshine and higher education and tacos. I’d be angry if I lived in Portland, too.

He lets the cat out of the bag about inclusion

There’s no logical reason that women’s sports should be an especially uncomfortable place for someone with traditionalist views about homosexuality. But the kulturkampf brigades will have only conformity, abject and absolute. That is part of the doctrine of “inclusion,” which, perversely enough, exists for the purpose of excluding certain people with unpopular political or religious opinions.

and clearly thinks Gay Pride has gotten too big for its britches (chaps? kilts? g-strings?)

It is not enough that gay people should be allowed to organize their own lives as they wish and to follow their interests and their pleasures where they will. You can decline to stand for “The Star-Spangled Banner,” but when they raise the rainbow banner, you’d damned well better stand up straight and salute.

Education and journalism schools get a solid, if glancing, blow as well.  As the Big Bad Bloggers say, READ THE WHOLE THING.

* I prefer the near-anagram GQ-BLT, with every innuendo (which endo?) intended.
