Open Letter to Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll

Lt. Gov. Carroll:

I would ask, as a member of the LGBT community that you refrain from making asinine comments such as: “Women who look like me don’t engage in relationships like that…”.

I’m not sure what your intent was in making that statement and I really don’t care.

What you succeeded in doing was alienating a great many of your constituents and the LGBT community as a whole.

I suggest that when asked questions by the press that you get them beforehand, so that someone in your office who is a bit more intelligent writes your answers so you don’t offend people.

And I agree with your above-mentioned statement in that you’re right in saying that women who look like you don’t engage in [homosexual] relationships. Women more beautiful than you (inside AND out) do engage in homosexual relationships and we are most grateful that you do not.
