And some people thought Mayor Pete Buttigieg wasn't "gay enough"

I'm not even going to dignify this idiocy with a link. But for those asking, this tweet tells you everything you need to know about how gay he is:

And I shouldn't dignify this completely misleading headline with a link -- it could very well be all it takes to get the woke gays who are asleep to turn on him. Here's what he actually said:
“I just want to make sure we don’t overrate ourselves in terms of our ability to be pure in this regard,” Buttigieg told AM to DM Wednesday.
“If you’re turned off, as I am, by the political behavior of Chick-fil-A, or their executives, if that leaves a bad taste in your mouth, so to speak, and you decide not to shop there, I’d certainly get it and I’d support that. But the reality is, we, I think, sometimes slip into a sort of virtue signaling in some cases where we’re not really being consistent.”
“I mean, what about all the other places we get our chicken from?” he continued. “Do we know; have we scrutinized the political contributions of the executives of other places that we get all of our food from?”
“I just want to make sure that we’re not too sanctimonious about this, because sometimes we put ourselves in this position of judgment that doesn’t really hold up under scrutiny,” he added. “My belief is that we should primarily deal with political issues in the political arena. And when somebody’s doing something wrong, for example, on LGBT rights in the political space, confront them, defeat them, and bring about a better policy.”
