“Hello. My name is Nickie Antonio and I like to Have Sex With Women.”
I’ll never stop cringing when a big deal is made about any candidate’s unusual sexual proclivities:
COLUMBUS, Ohio — Nickie Antonio has been a special-ed teacher and a “soccer mom.” She has chaired the Cuyahoga Democratic Women’s Caucus and is in her second term on the Lakewood City Council.
She is also openly gay.
It’s that last fact that is getting the attention in light of Antonio’s narrow victory in the 13th House District Democratic primary over fellow Lakewood council member Tom Bullock. With Tuesday’s win, the 54-year-old now stands on the verge of becoming the first openly gay person ever elected to the Ohio legislature.
Antonio knows she would be a gay pioneer at the Statehouse if elected this November, but she hopes that she won’t be defined by what would make her unique in Ohio elected politics.
Yeah she won’t be defined by it… It will just be the centerpiece of her campaign’s fundraising efforts and the only reason why liberal reporters such as Aaron Marshall write about her.
She has lived with her gay partner for 25 years, but isn’t the bigger question there is who are the children’s parents? Aaron is so excited to tell us in great detail about the historical nature of her candidacy that he forgot to tell us anything about the children who are certainly not being raised in a healthy environment.
