Chris Crocker Mad At Homophobes, Media, Lady-Like Language


Uber-queer Chris Crocker makes an expletive-laden return to YouTube this week.

While he previously caught the world’s awe-stricken eye for defending Britney Spears and flashing his incomprehensible crotch, Crocker’s latest offering actually carries an important message: “Fuck you”.

This 2:49 minute display explodes from the get-go, offering a middle-finger to what The Advocate has deemed “The Homophobosphere”: online space where anti-gay jerk-offs leave unsavory remarks like, “Only a stereotypical feces-eating faggot would get this emotional over celebrity gossip”. That happens to be one of the remarks left on Crocker’s now infamous “Leave Britney Alone” video, according to The Advocate. And YouTube ain’t the only place Crocker’s getting shit.

Gawker posted the Crocker video yesterday and already yielded some unsavory bits of non-bent bitchery. The Gay Recluse picked up on some virtual homophobia on Gawker’s post and promptly offered sardonic rebuttals and a reactionary indictment of Gawker, for some reason. All websites, including this one, get cranky wankers leaving trails of stinking textual bile. It’s part of the territory and, yes, Crocker, this deserves more attention.

While certainly Crocker’s “Homophobosphere” carries some weight, we’re more intrigued by the second part of his rantastic display, during which he takes on “the media,” although offers no definitive boundaries for said institution:

The media’s done with me. You know, they’re completely – the went through me like a paper bag, got to the bottom, like a brown paper bag, got to the bottom of me and tossed me. [Ed. note: umm…]

They wanted to portray a crazy Britney fan and they’re done… They don’t want a gay person to be seen as dimensional, multidimensional or as a full human being. They don’t want you to see the full picture. God forbid! Why isn’t the media picking up on this fucking gay hate that all of us are facing on here… I mean, of course they’ll never publicize this video. Ha, ha, ha. Let’s see if they do.

We have to admit that Crocker’s got a point about this one, but we’d also like to point out that The Advocate has now addressed the issue, as have the two aforementioned blogs and now we have, as well. Apparently we’re all small potatoes, which sucks because blogs helped catapult Crocker into the infamous halls of faggotry populated by the likes of Bobby Trendy and William Sledd.

Could it be Crocker’s simply taking jabs to redirect the spotlight? Possibly. Will the mainstream media pick up on and air Crocker’s ire? Not with that potty mouth!

      BRAVO!
      Of course, Chris also should’ve expected the Britney video to get tons of coverage. An androgynous, and seemingly-deranged person screaming about another seemingly-deranged person (whom just happens to be Britney Spears) can only draw media attention.
      But, BRAVO for him for doing this video.

      Crocker gives William Sledd a good name. Crocker goes off on his crazy nonsequitors and leaves us no meat to chew on. His rants are just that – rants. He uses no logic. He does not think his arguments through. He spouts and says absolutely nothing of significance. The fact that the Advocate and three gay blogs even pay attention to him is amazing.

      The bitch just makes me angry. I wish he would just shut is flap-trap and live his over-cosmetic life without subjecting the rest of us with his lame attempts at rhetoric.

      Hmmm, makes me wonder if Crocker even knows what rhetoric is or means?

      Just for the record, I love Gawker (as I love Chris Crocker) and don’t mean to indict the site’s writers–who are all great–but simply the more idiotic commenters; and to be fair, other commenters also pointed out the same flaws. I just wanted to make a point that no enclave is immune from the YouTube bs. I will amend the post accordingly.

      My my my.

      Chris honey, you need to thicken up that skin, cause if you think this is bad, you should have been around in the 80’s.

      This is one of the reasons I have respect for Perez Hilton. He takes shit flying in his face, coming from left and right, from me and a ton of other jaded and bitter homos, and he just lets it go in one ear and out the other.

      I can’t bring myself to watch the video, but it sounds like he has a point. The level of violent, phobic comments on some sites is frightening. We all got on Coulter’s case for one faggot remark, yet You Tube is full of “kill ‘em all” commentary. It might be time to hold some of these sites accountable for hate speech.

      The wonder of YouTube is the viewer always has the option of reporting the video as onjectionable. If you want to report it go ahead. At the same time though remember that the homophobes have the options of declaring innocuous gay stuff objectionable as well.

      It’s not the videos that make me cringe on you tube, it’s the pages of hate-filled comments that follow a lot of the videos.

      This hate follows him around, too. And it isn’t just straight people, but gay people, too. I need to make that clear.

      And no, Chris isn’t making the most concise argument — he’s speaking from his heart. Also, the blogs mentioned had to publish this video AFTER he did it, but as someone who has known Chris and have personally communicated with him before, this level of femme homo-hatred has been following him around for YEARS.

      Even before Britney.
      Even before YouTube.
      or LiveJournal.

      Hell, it is THE reason why he and his family KNEW he couldn’t go to HS in KY.

      What I mean to say, is that this is indicative what is really going on behind the smiles of our newly-minted “gay friendly” world today.

      You can change some laws, but you can’t change hearts.

      We need to take Chris in more as a community instead of… fueling the flames with our own uncomfortability (if you will).

      Some of us don’t like Crocker because of his publicity seeking. Some because of his effeminacy. And, of course, there are the gay-haters.

      I dislike him because of my prejudice against southerners, people with poor grammar, and the fact that he pouts like my ex-wife.

      Damn it! I forgot the positive part. Sad, eh? Crocker is absolutely correct about the big picture. He’s got spine and I admire him.

      Sorry guys!
      But please….. Crocker would have been a regular queer from Hicksvile…..HE was the one who posted his (own personal) breakdown (bad acting though!)…..for ALL the world to see….therefore inviting praise AND criticism…..if it doesn’t go poor tulips way….he rants off yet again……I (as a gay man) LOVE cock & men….I do NOT deem it my right to throw it down others throats (no pun intended)…..I have a friend who walks along a busy city street dressed like Carmen Miranda SCREAMING at workmen “what the f*uck are you looking at?”…..who is the aggressor?……the comments on the tube are of course out of hand…..but hell he HAS asked for a lot of it to be dumped on his doorstep!!
