California city official’s ‘straight pride’ column has protesters demanding his resignation

A city official in California who wrote a newspaper column promoting “straight pride” — and referring to gay men as “fairies” who wear “tinker bell wings” — defended himself at a city hall meeting this week as hundreds of protesters called for his resignation.

Vice Mayor Ted Hickman, 74, of Dixon refused to step down or apologize for the column published last month in the city’s Independent Voice newspaper, FOX KTVU reported.

“I didn’t give up my First Amendment right when I became an elected official,” Hickman said at the meeting. “To the contrary, I swore like the rest of the council to uphold the Constitution, which includes the First Amendment.”
