AnnCoulterCPAC.jpgAnn Coulter appeared on The Joy Behar Show last night, where she continued to trash gay people and LGBT issues.

She had few positive things to say about New York marriage equality, except for the fact that maybe gays will finally stop demanding their civil rights. She said, "The only reason I might be happy is that maybe they will shut up about it. Okay, the media capital of the world has gay marriage. Can we move on now?"

And, most unbelievably, she asserted that she wished gays would just go away, saying, "I not only want 'don't ask, don't tell' for the military, I want 'don't ask, don't tell' for society. Just give me a week where we're not talking about the gays."

Coulter also had negative things to say about the backlash facing Marcus Bachmann and reparative "ex-gay" therapy.

All of this coming from the woman who was the headlining speaker for GOProud's "Homocon" last fall.

In a statement, Michael Mitchell, Executive Director of National Stonewall Democrats, responded to the Coulter appearance:

The unfortunate truth is that many of the elected representatives within the GOP side with Coulter. If Coulter really believes in 'praying away the gay' one has to wonder what she thinks of her buddies at GOProud. Conservatives will continue to be painted with the hate-filled brush wielded by Ann Coulter for as long as they continue to give her a forum to spew her vile rhetoric.

Watch the full video appearance.

Europe is worried about right-wing extremism. Here we have a prime home-grown example of that very mindset. Words have consequences. She should be held accountable for any actions taken in response to here incitement.

Very un-enlightened. To oppress anyone is hardly an American ideal. Maybe she should get reaquainted with our nations own documents and roots.

Sour grapes. More conservative sour grapes.

If Coulter is in a tiff because DADT repeal and NY gay marriage is sucking up all the oxygen in her media corner -- well, maybe she's right, we are sucking up quite a bit of oxygen lately! We might think of this appearance as Coulter letting go of a big, smelly media fart.

Truth be told, other groups sometimes take up more media oxygen that I'd gladly surrender. As much as I support equality regardless of race, I sometimes feel left out when Black History Month or Indiana Black Expo sucks up all the media oxygen in my room. But I also hasten to acknowledge that racial inequality still exists -- especially racial economic inequality -- and eliminating inequality often requires over-communicating.

Eventually, Coulter will get over her current malady of flatulence ... and when she does, I hope she feels better.

P.S. If Coulter wishes we would just go away, we need to assure her that the feeling is mutual.

It must be difficult - there she is withering on the vine - and she has so much love to give.

I hate Ann Coulter too, but using misgendering and the her being insulted as "a closet trans woman" or calling any woman 'him' as an putdown is tolerated while Kathy calling that out is deleted is, IMO, very thoughtless. Again, this site needs to think about what's an insult to an entire community vs. a supposed insult to someone who posts.

It's really my fault for forgetting some of the bedrock rules of comedy - words with p, b, t, d, k, and g are funny, never break the three joke rule, gay men telling trans jokes are always funny and trans people calling them out are always offensive.

Forget it Gina, it's Chinatown.

"...personal attacks will not be tolerated. Please be respectful of others."

Okay, so how is Kathy's "joking" threat to tell a fag joke a violation of the TOS and the poster's calling a woman a man okay? Quite the double standard, I'd say.

Anyway, you can pretty much take it to the bank on any right wing, centrist or progressive site, including the likes of Bilerico and Pam's House Blend. Mention any female politico and you're eventually going to get crap about her appearance. The male politicos? They've got to weigh darn near 500 pounds and wear cheap polyester before someone cracks wise. There's that double standard again. What a shock.

I do admire Ted for challenging the stereotype of gay men being witty. It took courage.

Wow, seriously? This was deleted and the trans joke wasn't?

I've deleted both the comments now. I initially did not see a "trans joke", as you call it, but finally got it this morning. It's busy over here -- sorry for missing it initially.

Thank you for contacting me on that post you didn't understand before taking action, Jill.

Get Equal, Baby - peace out.

Now I have no love for Republicans but it's interesting you put the statement from Stonewall Democrats but not the Log Cabin Republicans who also denounced her. I give them props for taking her on. Now for the statement from GOProud....is that crickets I hear.

"Watch the full video appearance." No thanks.

You know, just because someone mentions the word "gays" on TV doesn't mean anyone has to cover it. Coulter has no relevance to anything.

Coulter has an advantage of physical attractiveness wrapped in a cloak of hate. She is the wolf in Red Riding Hood's cloak. I don't know when conservative women started looking pretty. Republican women used to look like church ladies walking 3 steps behind their man. Well, as we all know, sex sells and the Republicans are about money and conformity.

By the way, we need a few more to be caught in the bathroom. Lately too many democrats have been slipping up, but always with the ladies. Hmn. As Troy Landry would say "Choot em!" With a camera of course, we don't want any Republican martyrs. Catch those undercover Republican congressmen!

Ann Coulter is a ridiculous figure! She is so psychologically disturbed she make Rush Limbaugh look sane, intelligent and LIBERAL!!! Was she a member of the Hitler Youth Movement(like our current pope)? She certainly acts like she was! Joy Behar, PLEASE STOP GIVING THIS DEMENTED WOMAN A FORUM TO BLATHER HER INSANITY! (Other then having her on your show, you are such an excellent supporter of LGBT RIGHTS)!!!
