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.

4 Thoughts on “So Don’t Look At It

    My thoughts exactly Cobban. I posted on that article / thread a couple of times blasting the narrowminding idiots. It makes me sick that people that don’t live in Bisbee or don’t even live in AZ are posting against the Pride celebration.

    Small minded idiots…

    Hugs to you and all those going to Bisbee 😀 We wish we were there!

  2. I’ve been dealing with those anti-gay FundaThumpers for many years now on the ‘net, AOL, and, more recently, on YouTube. It never ceases to amaze me how vile, hateful, narrow-minded, and ignorant they can be.

    I went to the Bisbee Pride this weekend, and even in the normally openminded Bisbee, even on this gay-pride weekend, I walked into the gulch and heard “It’s a dyke, get the hell out.” I didn’t even bother with a response, I’m pretty sure he was doing what he had to do to make him feel like a man. I figured, if anything, he was looking for attention. I just find bigots are insecure, and I almost pity them that they’re so closeminded. How it must make them feel so big to pass judgement on others… what gives them the right?

  4. Ashley is right; bigots ARE insecure. Being born a homosexual saved me from turning into one of those pinheads. I can’t imagine being anyone or anything else. Thanks Ashley. Hope to see you back next year.
