New Jersey Assemblyman Calls The Eagles “Gaybirds”


The stupidity of the human race rarely ceases to amaze me.

New Jersey assemblyman Charles Mainor, a detective in Jersey City, is, apparently, a Giants fan. Yesterday, while at a friends' house watching Manning Face edge the Discount Double Check, Mainor decided to talk a bit of trash on his Facebook page, which is currently marked as "private": 

We are not going to just lay down, we come to play. Who the hell do you think we are the DALLAS COWGIRLS OR THOSE GAYBIRDS FROM PHILLY…NO WE ARE THE NEW YORK GIANTS.”


Doh. Gaybirds is a term that rarely flies when used by elected officials… especially those who are Democrats.

Mainor even fumbled his someone else wrote it excuse by claiming that he began to write the status but his friend finished it and pressed enter, unbeknownst to him. Yeah, OK. []

Mainor was in Jersey City last night at a party to watch the Giants play the Green Bay Packers when he posted almost the entire above message on his Facebook page, he said. A friend of his sat at the computer and added the comment about the “gaybirds from Philly,” Mainor said.

“I have to take full responsibility because it was under my name,” he said. “I have no excuse, other than me not looking before he did send the post.”


Don't you just hate it when you pause mid-status update then your friend makes homophobic remarks and presses enter?

  1. I’d bet my next paycheck this clown was a Jets fan who jumped on the Giants bandwagon after Rex Ryan’s mutts went down in flames. To quote the esteemed Bugs Bunny, wotta maroon!

  2. Serious? He should have wrote:
    Besides, the person most offended by the statement should be Strahan…how else do you think he got the gap between his teeth?

  3. The best is the backtrack about his “friend” finishing the post for him. Don’t be a pussy, Mr. Mainor. Talk your shit, and stand by it.

  4. Gaybirds and Cowgirls? You come up with that all by yourself? Don’t hurt yourself big fella. Douche canoe crap politician.

  5. @DXFlyers: in Jersey City, unfortunately, not only was no harm done to his re-election status, he will probably gain votes.

  6. Hopefully he doesnt bow down and apologize for a harmless shit-talk comment.
    Fucking sensitivity is destroying us all.

  7. So one guy wrote Cowgirls and another wrote Gaybirds? Clever, the black Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David.
    When’s the sitcom.

  8. Isn’t he just as misogynist for the dallas cowgirls comment? Dumb and crass, but is that homophobic?

  9. “I’d bet my next paycheck this clown was a Jets fan who jumped on the Giants bandwagon…”

    And I’ll bet my entire personal wealth that this wee-nubbed wankerer known as FuckedUpFlashInThePan (what her old lady calls her, no doubt) is and will always be a dense clown with nothing interresting to say.

  10. His biggest crime is thinking were all stupid enough to believe the lame excuse.
    Before today I’ve never heard the word “gaybird” used by anyone over the age of 10. First for everything.

  11. Actually this comment likely will fly BECAUSE he is democrat. Crossing broad and other philly blogs will be the only sites to report this while most major news networks wont say a peep to protect dems…..if a gop member said this, scandal city
