Lady Bunny: When Beauty Queens Turn Ugly
By Noah Michelson
But even Anita Bryant didn’t call for gays to be killed. These are fighting words! A few months ago gay activists were horrified that U.S. politicians and fundamentalists were influencing Ugandan politicians to adopt legislation which punished homosexuality with death. Now these fundamentalist wackos are sufficiently emboldened to air their poisonous views in this country as well! No longer content with preventing gays from getting married and enlisting in the military -- they want us dead! And every time you watch Glee, American Idol, Bones, Cops or any other Fox program you’re putting money in the pockets of conservatives at Fox who want to kill gays. This should deeply disturb all gays and anyone who cares about equal rights. Wake up, gays. By tuning in to Fox you are paying for your own death. And don’t protest that you watch Glee online because every single click on their sites translates into advertising dollars for people who aim to kill you in the name of the Lord. I call for a boycott of all things Fox. It worked on Florida orange juice. And if there is one thing these trolls care about more than their ideology, it’s their money.
Think I’m overreacting? Leave your gay-friendly big city bubble for a minute. Imagine an uneducated straight guy who is reeling from unemployment, a dwindling savings, and a home in foreclosure. He’s prejudiced against blacks and gays. He already feels that his world order has been turned upside down because he was raised to think that blacks were beneath him and now there's one in the White House. And he hears Glenn Beck on Fox calling Obama a racist and sees tea baggers rallying with signs calling the president a socialist, Marxist and communist. He doesn’t even know what these words mean but he knows they sound un-American. He wants to lash out at someone because the economic downturn has him so scared. But the president’s too difficult a target.
Then a semi-attractive girl like Lauren Ashley comes on the TV and his eyes perk up. She's saying the bible calls for gays to be killed. He doesn't recognize the passage from Leviticus she's quoting but he barely needs another reason to hate queers. So he sits and stews with hatred and fear until he blows a gasket. And before you know it, he's grabbing a gun and finds himself shooting up a local gay bar in the name of the Lord. Desperate measures in desperate times. Just like the guy who just flew a plane into an Austin IRS building to get back at the government. Please think about this before you turn on any Fox channel ever again. If you’re too complacent to even recognize your enemies, how the hell are you going to fight them? And as Lauren Ashley proves, they’re out for blood. Yours.
