For progressive and liberal Hawai'i Senators, it is no longer in vogue to go into a homosexual panic. In fact, right-wing neocon Sam Slom and born again Catholic Mike Gabbard are the only two legislators that are informed by the hallucinations on this issue. Instead of a homosexual panic, the rest of the Senators are possessed by what I'd like to call, the recall panic.
Homosexual panic is defined by an acute, brief reactive psychosis involving delusions and accusing a person of various homosexual activities. Recall panic, however, is defined by an acute, brief collective psychosis involving delusions and accusing a person of various recall activities.
This is a sublimation of homosexual panic. Instead of the slippery slope scare of homosexuals infecting individuals with their deviance and converting our children -- as in destabilizing society, now, the threat is senators will infect and convert each other with the idea that the naked majority can actually vote on the merits of bills.
"My position is that we need to ensure that the Senate does not damage itself, and I'm talking about the relationships among senators, as a result of any action taken," Hanabusa said. 1
Sounds pretty gay to me.
