ANOTHER HOMOPHOBIC OUTRAGE

UPDATE, August 24, 2011. This is SICK! And it may well have been made by homophobes who are mocking the stereotype of what they think Gay people are like. And any Gay person who thinks this is funny, and not a burlesque of gay men and what it means to be gay, must be deluded and filled with self-loathing.

UPDATE, August 17, 2011.

Words fail me! What idiocy and a back handed slap against Gay people! And, unfortunately, too many Gay people, many of whom are self-styled "activists" and "progressives," are too apolitical and/or clueless to even recognize that fact. I'll bet that these people, most of whom revel in using the word "queer," (definitions of which are "abnormal," "strange," and "mentally unbalanced") think that this scenario is very funny.

This ad is another indicator that shows the dumbing down of our culture, and the coarseness of views that deny the inherent dignity of Gay people and the normality of being Gay. Moreover, there will undoubtedly be Gay apologists for this homophobic ad, who will use as a reason that this ad is allegedly designed to raise money for a worthy cause. As if that is a justifiable reason to trash Gay people and same-sex love!

Some folks just don't get it, Jerry: A world that's safe for and affirming of its LGBT citizens and their human rights is not a world where this kind of "humor" could ever be acceptable.

Autumn Sandeen at Pam's House Blend is recuperating from "gender affirmation surgery". Her words: "Ow but yay!"

Thoughts?

Hi Anonymous: I'm happy for her if the surgery makes her fulfilled and enables her to lead a fulfilling life. I hope that one day the binary gender mind-set of people, LGBT and Straight, becomes a thing of the past; that one's body doesn't define gender. Best wishes, Jerry.

Shades of Sodom and Gomorrah! Not to mention the sleazy incest angle of the thing. Anti-Gay feeling disguised as comedy . . . it gets worse all the time, Jerry.

Hi Don Charles: And it will get worse the more the frivolity in much of the Gay communities outweigh energy put into the seriousness of being treated as second-class citizens. And I'm afraid that the election in 2012 will bring a President who is actively opposed to LGBT equality (not that Obama was that great) and might well set the tone and Supreme Court justice appointments that will reverse what gains have occurred; give permission for more anti-Gay "humor" like the above. Best wishes, Jerry.
