America's Voice En Español »
Ted Hickman, the vice mayor of Dixon, California, is facing a recall effort after penning a heinous homophobic column in the local paper Independent Voice and on his personal website calling for “Straight Pride American Month.”
Dixon is approximately 20 miles southwest of Sacramento.
Hickman claims that the column and his calls for a special day for heterosexual pride is “not really legally anti anything; instead it’s pro-family; and proud to be a straight American, and me expressing a private opinion… So there!”
Wrote Hickman in the column: “Last Sunday ended LGBTQF-WTF month Yea! (*Don’t get me wrong I support the First Amendment, as much as the next person, and support the rights of grown men to wear skin tight short-shorts and go-go boots and don tinker bell wings with wand and prance down the streets of San Francisco) with tens of thousands of folks dancing and prancing all over American celebrating the fact they are different than most of the rest of us and showing their “pride” in being so.”
