The effect was immediate.

In addition to that eerie, pinch-faced scowl worn by anti-gay marriage wingnuts that makes them all rather less attractive in general, homophobes may soon be forced to seek out their haircuts from homophobe stylists as well. Bet there are lots of those! Popular Santa Fe stylist Antonio Darden cut the hair of New Mexico’s anti-gay marriage Republican governor Susana Martinez three times before he decided that he doesn’t approve of styling for a woman who doesn’t approve of him being able to marry his gay partner of fifteen years, so he took her off his client list. Oh well, bad haircuts are their own form of Pope-approved contraception, so wingnuts should be pleased in the end, right?

From KOB Eyewitness News 4:

“The governor’s aides called not too long ago, wanting another appointment to come in,” Darden said. “Because of her stances and her views on this I told her aides no. They called the next day, asking if I’d changed my mind about taking the governor in and I said no again.”

The governor has said she believes marriage should be between a man and a woman, and that does not cut it with Darden.

“I think it’s just equality, dignity for everyone,” the popular hair stylist said. “I think everybody should be allowed the right to be together. My partner and I have been together for 15 years.”

Not to worry, Governor Martinez. We hear Bristol Palin will be available to do your styling soon. []

    This is the Governor of my state. I couldn't hate this women more if she were a Kardashian.

    • I've heard nothing but good about her, but that's mostly from corporate cumguzzlers and dickheads. They're touting her as the coming face of the GOP (typical fucking hentai bukkake-addicts). Sounds like I need to buckle on my Research Tools and climb into the pit for some info.

      • chascates

        Yep, hate-filled opportunists are indeed the coming face of the GOP.

        • Crank_Tango

          • Yup. See my tagline?

            I don't want to be Cindy McCain's pool boy. I think she might actually be an ok person when she's not on drugs, but, eh. I'm gonna keep being Repuglycunts who nees destroying, I think.

      • Negropolis

        People saw her coming from a mile away; she was being touted as a crazy, tea party nut when she got in the race.

    • BS4Dummies

      Yeppers, the platform she ran on against Denish was primarily education, promising to not make any cuts to the departments. She had not officially taken office yet and her first public statement after the election was……..she is going to cut funding to the dept. of education.

      I predict some approaching "bad hair days" for the gov.

  • GunToting[Redacted]

    Wait… She got that hairdo BEFORE the poof took her off her client list? Wow, can't wait to see the After results.

    • Uh … obviously, this is her at the between stage when her haircut's grown out along with the dye, and she's in desperate need of repairs. Why d'you think she's calling him alla time now?

            Dang, man, you are *such* a tough audience!

          • Nah, I give ya high marks for Transparency this time. Besides, nobody else goes "Dood!!", so who else could it be?

  • memzilla

    Governor Martinez? Another Hispanic voter for Newt, at least. Wonder who the other 98 are?

    • Probly some aging gusanos in Florida.

      • miss_grundy

        I have to agree with you. It seems strange to me that any latino/hispanic would vote Repugnant considering these people REALLY seem to hate latinos. I can't understand the self-hatred. Perhaps it comes from walking around without wearing a hat in that Florida sun.

        • I have not seen *any* evidence so far that white Republicans believe that anyone who does not fall within their narrow definition of "white" is equal to them or, frankly, even human. I mean these are the same people who considered the Irish and Italians subhuman a mere 100 years or so ago. Any Latino who doesn't realize where their interests lie is either really stupid, or hoping to ride the tiger and win, a pretty feeble hope at best.

  • PrimlyStable

    No no no – when Wingnuts want to run adverts in support of Iranian Marxist terrorists it's allowed because of Freedom and The Market and stuff. If a gay hairdresser refuses to cut the hair of someone who hates his lifestyle and wants to make his life less enjoyable, it's yet another example of proponents of the Homosexual Agenda DISCRIMINATING against "normal" Americans because of their religious faith.

    Seriously, by the end of today someone will have blogged about "How much we'd be hearing from the libruls if a Christian hairdresser refused to style a gay woman".

    • not that Dewey

    • I was just pooting around on Raw Story, and commented about how this should be a rallying cry to LGBTQ folks everywhere, you know, Boycott the Bigots, and man, I got jumped by at least half a dozen Kochsucking trolls calling me out for being a bigot. Srsly.

      • Fukui_sanYesOta

        Wait, wait, what? Doesn't that argument go along the lines of "you can't be bigoted against people who are bigots, that's bigotry. however it's ok for them to be bigots because, um, look at that squirrel!"

        • Crank_Tango

          squirrel, exactly. Chewbacca is a wookie, also.

        • Hey, were you the guy who was posting responses to me? Because, man, that was *exactly* the argument.

          Needless to say, I'm not the most patient soul on the planet, and certainly nowhere *near* as polite and patient as you, so I gave this person a regular-sized dose of my opinion. The argument ended with a petulant frenzy of poutrage, a "I'm not descending into this FEELTHY PEEET of namecalling with you," and a manly flounce off the stage, right. Unfortunately, not pursued by a bear.

  • I cut my hair sometimes. I'm not very good at it, but it's just hair. People laugh at me and ask if I've cut my hair again. It doesn't really bother me. I can just wear a hat for awhile. She should try this.

    • Hey, I do that a lot too. Unfortunately, Susana belongs to a party in which women are judged by how much chemical/surgical enhancement they have consumed within the last 48 hrs, so, you know, no luck there.

      • I know right, It's just hair. It grows back. If you do too horrible of a job, you can just go to that place were the ladies all dress like basketball players and they have TVs everywhere.

        • When I do too bad of a job, I just shave or clip it down to the roots. It grows back, and as long as you have enough stuff to keep the head warm, it's not a problem.

          • SoBeach

            I used to cut my own hair, out on the porch with electric clippers. I could do a boot camp do and a basic training do. I looked like a guy who cut his own hair.

            Now I have this old dude who wears impeccable guayabera shirts and really shiny shoes cut my hair. I think he's what people call a "confirmed bachelor", but I really don't give a shit. All I know is I don't look like I have mange any more.

            The governor needs to grow the hell up.

          • Srsly. I just have to wonder what kind of people have so little going on in their own damn lives that it's important to them who else is doing the horizontal samba.

  • Callyson

    Honey, time to reconsider that position of yours. Your hair needs some serious flip – flopping…

  • You know, Dad fancied himself a bit of a comedian, and would often say to my mother (remember, this was back in the '50s), "I don't know why you spend so much time and money at the beauty shop, you look exactly the same when you come back."

    I'll bet Susana's husband *thinks* the same thing, even if he doesn't dare ask her because anybody with a mouth like that WILL slice your carotid.

  • Rotundo_

    Send her down to Bernie at the corner barber shop, a straight guy can cut hair. She might come out looking a little butch with a crewcut, but I'll bet the state doesn't forget that image. (All kidding aside, if all LGBT folks and supporters out there refused service to these pukes, they couldn't get a can of coke from a machine, let alone a human being, and they so richly deserve it.)

      I think it's just Pillow that's getting the skoolin'. Brisket already knows everything she thinks she needs to know to operate the business because of her experience on some TeeVee show. I think Viper will join them after she drops out of Wasilla High.

      And you know those two little girls are probably getting straight As in math, science, and five different languages.

    • Barrelhse

      The massage business will be the real draw, though.
      ..I wonder if they think Cosmetology is tarot cards and zodiac signs and shit.

      • Tawd recommended a girl, for the massage services.

  • Have great fun live blogging the debate tonight. Those from the NW will be pleased that the Stranger has endorsed Rick Frothy ( & Newt & Ron Paul) in the Washington GOP Cacaucuses. Those are open events and they are suggesting Wonketteers and other libtards could have great fun, as long as your shots are up-to-date, to attend in-person the "steaming turdgasm" that is the Rethuglickin Presidential Race.

  • She probably envisioned she was going to get all dolled up for that inevitable call from an opportunistic GOP POTUS wannabe look'n for a running mate. It would be such a great idea to have a brunette wingnut VPwannabe to appeal to the lady folk. Am I right?

    Let that hag march her unremarkable ass into Fanastic Sam's for a major buzz job. I mean a bowl, a razor – the whole nine yards. Wow, I wish I was there when she called for an appointment. That had to be MAJOR EFFING DRAMA at the salon. Sorry I missed it!

    This got me to thinking who Santorum is going to pick as his running mate? They probably think it should be a woman, a relative unknown. From a relatively sparsely populated state. What they think of as a milf. A rising star. You know, because it has never been done before and they want to look fresh and also concerned about women's issues.

    • HedonismBot

      Ooh! Ooh! I volunteer Cynthia Lummis, the Congresscunt from my home state of Wyoming. They'll lose; then she'll decide she likes the limelight too much to continue being a no-seniority back-bencher, and she'll pull a Palin and resign. Being a Republican congressperson is a lifetime appointment in Wyoming. I'd actually be grateful to Santorum for taking her off our hands early.
      Sigh. A guy can dream.

    • Dudleydidwrong

      You really think Santorum would pick a woman for his running mate? Hell, half of his supporters (maybe more) think that women should shut up, stay pregnant, and stand in the kitchen except when prone to receive the bodily fluids of the master. Santorum's ideal running mate would be a clone of Heinrich Himmler. But…

      Romney: yes, because he can add another wife according to Mormon secret doctrine;
      Newt: always looking for another wife so that's no problem. Callista is old news;
      Paul: what's a woman for, anyway?

  • littlebigdaddy

    Haha, the irony here (in addition to the stupidity…she probably had no idea Antonio the Santa Fe hairstylist was gay) is that when she starts going to Costcutters or wherever she will get a haircut that will make people assume that SHE is gay.

    You people are all missing the point.

    Beyond NM and Governor Suzie's unfortunate hairdo, the larger problem with gay marriage is that it leads to bizarre, Godless relationships… like mine.

    And I think folks have a right to know that my husband and I work very hard each day to: ruin Traditional Marriage; recruit children into our drug-filled, sex-addled lifestyle; tear asunder the fabric of society; increase US dependence on foreign oil; and drink the blood of animal sacrifice at the full moon.

    We may refuse some service to straight people… but not that kind (wink-wink). This is a problem, people. If gays can get married in states like NM at some point… well, it could very well mean The End of Days. And no more nice hairstyles for any of us. No, really. It could.
