Over the weekend, a New York Times opinion piece wondered how anyone in the LGBT could possibly identify as Republican. ThinkProgress’ LGBT editor Zack Ford has evidently decided to take that a step further, coming out and boldly proclaiming that LGBT conservatives give up their legitimacy when they call themselves conservative — and they deserve to be shamed and marginalized for it:

He doesn’t like LGBT conservatives, and by golly, he won’t stand for them.

Holy lack of self-awareness, Batman!

It should come as no surprise that Ford’s getting raked over the coals — and he deserves every last bit of it.
