Let us look at Exhibit A, then Exhibit B.
Sally Field, actress, talented, attractive.
Sally Field is kind and loves her son, who happens to be gay. Sally Field doesn’t give a flying fuck that her son is gay. She actually thinks it’s rather nice.
Ann Widdecombe, fame-whore, God-botherer, full of hate and empty carbs.
Ann Widdecombe couldn’t have a gay son if she tried because she has never had sex – not even with one of the fingers of a Twix! – though she does have a lot to say about sex. Mostly gay sex. She’s obsessed. Like a crazy person. Though if she were to have a gay son, via magic much like the Virgin Mary, Ann Widdecombe wouldn’t want him to have the same rights she has. But then Ann Widdecombe is simply perfection.
So, ladies and gentlemen and undecided of the court… who would you rather have as a mother?
ps. This is a video of the lovely Sally Field accepting the Human Rights Campaign Ally for Equality Award over the weekend in Washington DC, after being introduced by her son, Sam Greisman. We’d skip that latter bit. He’s a big ol’ sissy and it kind of gets on your tits.
Rhetorical, whilst also topical, question of the day: Which would you rather have as a mother, Sally Field or Ann Widdecombe?,
