Queer beer? Wasting German tax money

The Greens have come up with another new revolutionary idea: The Family Minister of Rhineland-Palatinate, Katharina Binz (Bündnis90/Die Grünen), has started the "Queer Wine Rhineland-Palatinate" competition, with tax money, of course. The fact that Binz is also Deputy Prime Minister of the red-green state government gives the campaign a very special touch.

    The competition is aimed at gay, lesbian, bisexual and intersex winemakers. According to the official statement, all those wineries where non-heterosexuals “work in a responsible position” can take part in the campaign.

    In other words: The winegrowers in the state capital of Mainz who employ a non-binary cellar master should report. Or a lesbian chief grape picker. Trans winemakers probably also have very special opportunities.

    Ministry wants to buy 500 bottles

    The LGBT online magazine Queer was delighted to explain the campaign, which is sadly “unique in Germany”, in the new “gender German”.

    “In a tasting, experts will then determine up to two wines that will be ambassadors for ‘QueerWein Rheinland-Pfalz’. Selected ‘QueerWine Rhineland-Palatinate’ wines are to be presented on May 18, 2022, the state’s constitution day, and sent nationwide to influencers in politics and society”.

    The Green ministry also wants to promote sales of the queer wines itself, but they shouldn’t cost more than ten euros: In order to have enough wine bottles available for shipping, the ministry’s top management wants to buy 500 bottles of the selected wines. Which will not be a problem for the ministry officials since the taxpayer will also pay for the gifts.

    Criticism rains down

    The former Federal Minister of Agriculture Julia Klöckner (CDU) – she was Nahe Wine Queen in 1994 and German Wine Queen in 1995/96 – has criticized the competition organized by the Greens: “Our winegrowers on the Ahr are doing something totally different: Cellars have been completely washed away from the flood, entire crops have been lost.”

    Especially now, “sexual identity isn’t the priority”, she added. “Actually, the quality of a wine […] has nothing to do with sexual orientation”.

    Publicist Birgit Kelle is clearer – and sarcastic – in the Swiss Weltwoche. The mother of four expressed only disdain for the red-green state. The LGBT scene may be sad that straight wine still dominates the markets in Germany, although “everyone knows what a striking difference in taste it makes when a non-binary winemaker has rolled the barrel”.

    Queer beer in the future too?

    Birgit Kelle’s acerbic comments continued: “Down with the old white straight winegrowers! Bring on the trans wine queen!” In times of political correctness, film producers “somehow still accommodate a disadvantaged black lesbian” in almost every screenplay […] in order to ensure the ‘visibility’ of queer people”. But now “politically correct rainbow drinking” is also being foisted on wine lovers.

    On top of that, Kelle has predicted “queer beer”.

    “Isn’t there also a gay lacquer-and-leather beer brewer who has received too little attention from society, who would like to pose with a hairy chest in front of a copper kettle at ‘Germany’s Next Queer Brewer’?”

    Wine lovers are subjected to disgusting personal accounts

    Simon Maier said “she” has dreamed of wearing a frilly German traditional dirndl and a crown, and of being a wine princess. Simon is now called “Simona Aurelia” and has been elected as the district wine princess for the Kraichgau.

    The 27-year-old winemaker told the RNZ about “her extraordinary life”, subjecting unsuspecting German wine enthusiasts to a flood of particularly distasteful information.

    The “woman” from Mühlhausen is “struggling with the hardships of the past few weeks” because she underwent gender reassignment surgery in Munich; a vagina has been formed from her penis. “I’m fine,” she told RNZ and “smiled away her existing pain”.

    According to Maier’s winning statement, in the “somewhat conservative world of winegrowers”, “she” also experienced a great deal of negativity: “I was accused of only doing it for marketing reasons,” said the winemaker.

    Readers also learn that “she” has a handbag that is taken along for visits to the gynecologist. It is not at all clear how this relates to wine, but somehow Green voters find this interesting.
