Musings

  • Ex-justice of the peace, Keith Bardwell, who refused to marry an interracial couple in Tangipahoa Parish, Louisiana, recently claimed, "I'm not a racist. I just don't believe in mixing the races that way."

Ah, yes, and that sort of focus on race and a misguided concern about races "mixing" would, by definition, qualify as racism, which would make you, a racist...

This reminds me of those anti-gay types who claim they don't have a problem with gay people, they just don't think they should have to hire us, or serve alongside us in the military, or have their kids taught by us in schools, or have to share their exclusive right to marriage with us.
 
  • This week on the Wanda Sykes show, the guests were discussing stereotypes on television, specifically the embarrassment that is 'Jersey Shore' on MTV. Wanda said, "I'm like this. Hey — black people — we've had to put up with 'Flavor of Love' for years, so. Hey, deal with it... We're looking at it and going, 'White people are looking at this! I'm going to have to kill everybody on that show."
Exactly! This is exactly how I felt as a homosexual watching Adam Lambert's lewd performance at the American Music Awards — Straight people who haven't had a great deal of real life experiences with us are watching you act like some sort of hedonistic dominatrix.

  • Queerty.com asks the loaded question, "Is This Really Too Offensive To Ever Show America?" accompanied with this picture: 


Nope, I don't think so, but I think this



was probably too offensive to display at the American Music Awards, yeah.
Particularly at this point in our struggle for equality, when we should be trying to be taken seriously.

And that is my reason for disliking this whole fiasco, regardless how those with the political-correctness agenda want to frame it.
