His word choice, incidentally.
Having every orifice in your body penetrated while playing the bugger’s bitch does a snarky sodomite make:
In that slur stream Savage does not, however, refer to the Republican base as idiots or morons or anything else insinuating low IQ. He deserves credit for that because grassroots GOPers are, on average, more intelligent than sexual deviants.
Since 2008 the GSS has asked explicitly about sexual orientation. The mean wordsum score among gays, lesbians, and bisexuals is 6.25 (n = 173). Among those who identify as “strong Republican”, it is 6.52 (n = 490). That’s a little less than one-fifth of a standard deviation advantage–about 2.3 IQ points–for the GOP base over the sexually debased. It’s a modest difference but still one that would be fun to hit the dismissive degenerate with.
Savage, who is raising another man’s child, is only a little less fecund than the ‘community’ he putatively speaks for is. They average less than one child each. These same Republicans, in contrast, average 2.17.
We have the power to make the future ours. People like Savage are terrified that we’re starting to realize it.
