Former Montana Governor: Southern Men Are ‘Effeminate,’ Eric Cantor Is On My ‘Gaydar’


Former Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer, a Democrat, said in a recent interview that southern men come across as “effeminate.”

“How do I say this … men in the South, they are a little effeminate,” Schweitzer told National Journal in a recent interview.

He added:

They just have effeminate mannerisms. If you were just a regular person, you turned on the TV, and you saw Eric Cantor talking, I would say—and I’m fine with gay people, that’s all right—but my gaydar is 60-70 percent. But he’s not, I think, so I don’t know. Again, I couldn’t care less. I’m accepting.

Schweitzer is said to be a potential Democratic presidential candidate for 2016. If the former governor does run, voters south of the Mason-Dixon line will likely remind him “a southern man don’t need him around anyhow.”
