Turns out Ken Mehlman is gay.

Now, there's only about 10 of you who will know, or care, who Ken is. He was the head of the Republican National Committee. He was a major advisor for George W. Bush. He has been a major player in the anti-GLBT movements of the last 20 years.

Apparently he someohw didn't know he was gay. Oddly, everyone who watched politics knew he was gay. As John Aravosis of Americablog said, he was apparently the only closeted straight guy in politics, as he'd never answer the question whether or not he was gay or straight.

Assorted 'major figures in the GLBT movement' are supporting him. Coming out is tough, after all. It's challenging. Show him respect for his conflict!

No.

Let me reiterate. FUCK NO.

You are an outcast, Ken. Not welcome. You don't get to attack people all of your career, and the embrace them afterwards. You played a part in harming untold millions of people. Work to fix that. Apologize. Make restitution. When you have helped just ONE more person than you have hurt...I'll welcome you.

Until then... Fuck off.
