Dan Savage Demands Canadian MP Perform a Sex Act on Him

Gay activist/sex columnist Dan Savage has been honored across the liberal media elite as an anti-bullying activist. Will any of his media-elite fans notice his latest column that repeatedly asks a recently retired 69-year-old conservative Canadian Member of Parliament to perform oral sex on him...in front of a camera crew?

In his latest “Savage Love” column, published in alternative weekly newspapers in hip cities across America, Savage insisted anyone who insists homosexuality is a choice and not an unavoidable genetic trait is a “choicer” and part of “just another group of deranged conspiracy theorists,” like 9/11 truthers and birthers. Here’s the complete attack (warning: graphic sexual bullying follows).

THE CHOICER CHALLENGE: Last week, the leader of British Columbia's Conservative Party, John Cummins, told a radio interviewer that gay people shouldn't be covered by the BC Human Rights Act because being gay is "a conscious choice."

Like truthers (9/11 was an inside job!), birthers (Barack Obama was born in Kenya!), and deathers (Osama bin Laden is alive and well and living in West Hollywood!), choicers would appear to be just another group of deranged conspiracy theorists who can't be dissuaded by science or evidence or facts. And John Cummins isn't the only choicer out there. We have lots of choicers right here in the United States (Tony Perkins, Rick Santorum, "Stephen Colbert," et al.).

But what if the choicers are right? What if being gay is something people consciously choose? Gee, if only there were a way for choicers to prove that they're right and everyone else is wrong... actually, there is a way for choicers to prove that they're right!

I hereby publicly invite—I publicly challenge—John Cummins to prove that being gay is a choice by choosing it himself.

Suck my dick, John.

I'm completely serious about this, John. You're not my type—you're about as far from my type as a human being without a vagina gets—but I have just as much interest as you do in seeing this gay-is-a-choice argument resolved once and for all. You name the time and the place, John, and I'll show up with my dick and a camera crew. Then you can show the world how it's done. You can demonstrate how this "conscious choice" is made. You can flip the switch, John, make the choice, then sink to your bony old knees and suck my dick. And after you've swallowed my load, John, we'll upload the video to the internet and you'll be a hero to other choicers everywhere.

It's time to put your mouth where your mouth is, John. If being gay is a choice, choose it. Show us how it's done.

Suck my dick.

Savage is basically offering this "challenge" to anyone who challenges him. In Canada, the liberal CBC treated the John Cummins comments as strange and unpopular. Reporter Chris Brown insisted only 23 percent of Canadians agreed in a poll that homosexuality is a choice instead of genetic. The story began much like a U.S. network report, in disbelief at socially conservative views:

CHRIS BROWN: On Vancouver’s rainbow-draped Davies Street, people know a thing or two about being gay.

MAN ON STREET:  You’re born that way. It’s like straight people are born the way they are, gay people are just that way, it’s just born.

BROWN: Don’t tell that to John Cummins, who’s poised to become leader of BC’s Conservative Party...

The story featured another three Cummins critics and a political analyst that said this could help Cummins inside the Conservative Party -- no matter how much the CBC can't imagine it.
