Controversial sex columnist Dan Savage has never been one to sugarcoat his words and that was the case in a new interview in which he told Republican Mike Huckabee to ‘suck my dick.’
In the interview published today in Playboy magazine, the LGBTI activist laid into others in the media who offer sex advice.
‘Dr Laura is a vile piece of shit,’ he said.
What about Dr Phil?
‘He’s part of the advice-industrial Oprah complex. I’m not a big fan of telling women that when their husband looks at porn it’s a form of cheating. That’s what you say if you want to drive the divorce rate up even higher than it is.’
Conversation then turned to politics.
Savage named Russian President Vladimir Putin and the president of Uganda Yowari Museveni as the most offensive homophobes.
Savage said their persecution of LGBTI people was the backlash against the success of the gay rights movement in the US and an easy way to assert moral superiority over the west.
‘They don’t have to take better care of their citizens, they don’t have to have a functioning democracy, they don’t have to have a decent environment, they don’t have to have a justice system that works,’ he said
‘They just have to hate gay people really hard and they’re better than the United States, better than Canada, better than France.’
‘Suck my dick’
The interviewer the brought up former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, who once said Savage was could not be a happy person because he was so ‘rude, vile and angry.’
‘I love that pseudo, false, pious, ersatz, bullshit empathy. Fuck you and fuck your pity, Mike Huckabee,’ he said.
‘Suck my fucking dick. I don’t need your pity, and I also didn’t need your approval. Neither interests me.
‘There is a long list of people I’ve invited to suck my dick, though, figuratively. Rick Santorum never got the invite. Herman Cain did. He always says that being gay is a choice.
‘I’ve always felt the correct retort to “It’s a choice” is “Prove it. Suck my dick, and suck my dick like you like it. You don’t have to have a boner while you suck my dick, but you can’t be crying like it’s an Oz repeat on HBO.”’
Savage then targeted in on Marcus Bachmann, the husband of Congresswoman Michele Bachmann who runs a ex-gay clinic.
‘Anybody who has gaydar — anybody who has eyes — looks at him and sees a tormented closet case who has externalized his internal conflict and is abusing other people, doing his reparative-therapy bullshit. It’s so sad and pathetic,’ he said.
