It’s Pride Month — did you know it was Pride Month? — and to celebrate Pride Month CNN handed over a webpage to writer and editor Melisa Raney to share the story of how she discovered her true sexuality at 36. The reason we say it’s not satire is that it sounds like satire. EWTN’s Brandon McGinley put it just right:

He’s not wrong. Raney writes for CNN:

My life would change forever after a simple Google search in November 2016. I had just seen Kate McKinnon perform the song “Hallelujah” on SNL and discovered that she’s a lesbian. That shocked me because she didn’t fit the awful stereotype often depicted in the media.

I quickly declared her my “new girl crush.” But it was more than that.

At that moment, I realized that I wanted a relationship with a woman like her — but I felt terrible for even having this thought, as someone who was faithfully married.

Not to rag on Raney, but anyone who was “moved” to do anything but vomit by “Saturday Night Live’s” post-election dirge sung by McKinnon in costume as loser Hillary Clinton has lost us already.

Sad, but no surprise; she and her husband separated “in an effort to give me some perspective,” although they do share custody of their two kids, so that’s nice.

For what it’s worth, this editor knows two married men who had this happen to them, and neither one was feeling a lot of pride.

It’s Pride Month … this is a story of pride, not regret.
