Bisbee Pride is this weekend. Our local paper has been giving it some positive press coverage. Since it’s online, people can comment on the articles. As one might imagine, there are several comments about how “the gays” are so immoral and it’s disgusting for our children to see men dressed up in women’s clothing.
Milton Berle was disgusting?
Actually, Milty was pretty ugly in drag but I digress.
Reading the comments made me angry. It’s amazing to find out what people really think. It’s also amazing how candid a person is with their opinion when the can be anonymous. For some reason, it annoyed me all day. Then, I woke up this morning to find a snarky comment in my moderation queue (it’s on my last post). I approved it because I believe people should be entitled to express their own opinion (and because it wasn’t completly hateful). I also wanted to make a point:
If you don’t like what you’re reading online, click something else.
If you don’t like what’s on television, change the channel.
If you don’t like Anne Coulter…well, nobody likes her.
<<Engage Patriotic Mode>> This is a great country. Why? Because we have the freedom to say what we want. We also have the freedom to focus our attention elsewhere if we don’t like what we’re hearing. I loathe Anne Coulter because she’s a vile hateful cunt–had to go there with the “C” word with Ms. Cunter–Coulter. At the same time, I applaud Anne. She’s the embodiment of the American Dream. She’s actually found a way to make millions by being such a cunt. Good for her! When she starts in with her verbal diarrhea, I turn her off. Ahhh, no more Anne. It’s that simple.
I do love this country. I just hate the double standard. Freedom and justice for all–as long as you’re one of us and Christian.
Jesus loves me this I know
If you’re white and hetero…
The double standard has turned me into a people-separatist. There’s a reason I left crowded noisy urban Chicago to live on 16 acres in rural Arizona. I didn’t like things so I changed them. Am I a whiny crybaby? It depends on what day it is. That being said, I reserve the right to be whatever I want to be and if you don’t like it, click here.
