‘Douche du Jour’: Jane Skrovota’s Epic Homophobic Rant at Lincoln, Nebraska Anti-Discrimination Ordinance Hearing
Nebraska doesn’t have any laws protecting lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender people from discrimination. That sucks. Lincoln, the state’s capital city, has proposed to fix that by passing a ‘fairness amendment’ that would ban discrimination against LGBT people in the workplace, housing and hotels. That doesn’t suck.
In the spirit of democracy, the city of Lincoln held a public hearing on Monday so that friends and foes of the measure could have their say before the City Council votes on it next week. Very cool.
There were some surprising voices who spoke out in favor of the measure, including religious figures and a former police chief who cited the dozens of hate crimes against LGBT people– and the many more than most likely occurred but did not get reported– as proof of its necessity.
Then there was Jane Skrovota, the silver-haired old woman who spoke in a soft yet sinister voice full of hatred for all things LGBT. Hers was a rare performance which drew stunned looks and even some disbelieving laughter from those gathered before the council that day. Towelroad posted the epic homophobic rant on YouTube for all the world to see the gay-hating wonder that is Jane Skrovota. Here are some of her finest quotes:
“P- E- N- I- S goes into the anus to rupture intestines. The more a man does this the more he’ll be a fatality or a homicider…”
“A huge percent of gay men in school grounds molest boys, partly because they don’t have AIDS yet…”
“Hillary Clinton’s roommate four years in college was a gay woman. To avoid going gay like Clinton did, college students need single rooms and single gender dorms… A college woman is seduced with illegal Rohypnol to go gay.”
“Candida fungus grows hugely on a corpse. AIDS is a candida fungus disease…”
“Roman senators went to Roman baths to be promiscuous gays, bis, and orgiers then went to the Coliseum to watch Christians get mauled and perish. Do gays become this sadistic? Yes. They cuss after coupling, don’t like the land they lay on, and 80% of those that did treason by the year 2000 are gays.”
“Gays can transform to be celibate to live to be 80 years old.”
“Read the book Nijinsky to understand that bisexuals always become insane.”
“A wedding dress is for a woman not a man.”
We wouldn’t have believe it if we hadn’t seen it with our own eyes. Thanks, Towelroad, for this internet gold. And may the fine men and women of the Lincoln City Council have the wisdom to pass the ‘fairness amendment.’ The very existence of people like Jane Skrovota should be all the proof you need that such a law is indeed most necessary.
