Queering the pitchHilarious. Not the repulsive column at the hideous Townhall, but the sight of yet another rightist just not getting it.
It's not the word. It's the hatred. It's not that it's not okay to use the word "faggot" to talk about gays, so that it'll all be okay when teh fagz decide we can all call them that, it's that Coulter thinks it's an insult -- a schoolyard taunt -- to call someone gay. It's that this penis thinks that it's okay to joke about bombing gay bathhouses. Tee hee.
I note one of the commenters:
Children are innocents and their sexual drives should always be allowed to develop naturally and normally.
Quite. And sometimes that natural development leads them to butt sex.
You might ask, what is the problem with these people? Why are they so obsessed with gayness? They bang on about children a lot, as if there being gays somehow made it more likely that their own kids would go gay. These fools have the firm belief that you can choose what your sexuality can be. And I think this is the root of their hatred. They are told that you choose, and each one of them, like all of us, has some hidden, dark corners that they feel are not "normal" (possibly because they have been undereducated in sex and simply do not know what "normal" is, so that they fear that most things aren't).
But surely they know it's not all about them? You'd think so but this is the core of conservatism, after all, the heart of the right: it's all about me me me. The whole gay thing is about my sexuality, my marriage, my choices, my life. It's not about someone else's right to choose for themselves what they want. Fuck that. Or rather, don't.
