Kerry Issues Last Official US Apology for at Least Next Four Years

Secretary of State John Kerry yesterday apologized for decades of anti-LGBT discrimination up to but not including current and especially near-future anti-LGBT discrimination.

Back in the 1950s, alongside anti-communist paranoia, anti-gay sentiment dressed itself up in the sheer, clingy gown of patriotism, flaunting the fierce lipstick of concern that closeted gay people were subversives or targets for subversive blackmail. Two leading proponents of this school of thought included well-known straight men Roy Cohn, and J. Edgar Hoover of the FBI-curious.

As part of his tenure, Kerry created the position of Special Envoy for the Human Rights of LGBTI Persons, a post which Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson will now be obliged to fill and/or eliminate in a story that will be apologized for 60 years from now by our robot secretary of state, along with apologies to Muslims, atheists, and any surviving signatories of the Paris climate-change accords.
