Seriously y’all. Someone named Zimmerman needs to, like, cure cancer or something ASAP because that surname is just full of awful these days. So today in “news of neocon dipshits outing themselves as hella creepy”, Austin, Texas District 6 City Council member Don Zimmerman publicly compared gay marriage to pedophilia. This is not news, or even new or surprising, but get a load of how dedicated he is about the subject, the lengths he goes to argue what should be a throwaway point.
Before we get to the screencaps, it’s worth noting this man lost custody of his child over abuse allegations. So, you know, keep that in the back of your mind when you see him desperately opining for tolerance about his alleged desire to marry a child.
(For what it’s worth, I’m not a fan of the argument in the original post either; I don’t think gay rights are comparable to the Civil Rights movement or the continuing fight against white supremacy. /caveat)
