Queerty is better as a member
I love Larry the Cable Guy! Yes, he is a conservative, but his views on this issue make him a humanitarian.
Ron White is pro-gay. And the funniest of the Blue Collar bunch.
My bleeding little liberal heart loves the Blue Collar dudes.
I prefer the awesome Tig shotout.
I’m not ashamed to support a guy who feels that way. As a result of this article, I’ve just ordered two of his DVD’s.
Do not support mediocrity for someone who barely nodded and gave a half-hearted thumbs-up.
@boring: Yeah, I’m inclined to agree. His response smacks of libertarians who are cool with the gays, but also cool with people discriminating against us. I also don’t respect the response that “it doesn’t affect my life so I don’t care” yadda yadda. Either you think that we should be equal before the law or you don’t – which one is it for him? As far as I’m concerned, his non-answer is an answer: he’s fine with us as long as we keep to ourselves and don’t agitate for, you know, dignity and legal protections.
I also don’t think for one minute that libertarians (in the frankly wrong, co-opted, American sense of the word) are our friends: they simply would replace public coercion with private coercion, which is a far more terrifying and savage proposition given that it is perpetrated by institutions that are, by definition (and in fact) unaccountable to the people.
It’s kind of like Betty Draper’s reaction to the Civil Rights Movement in Mad Men: fine with blacks, but essentially clueless and blase because she has no dog in that fight.
A step in the right direction, perhaps, but a small one.
Any thumbs-up is a thumbs-up in the right direction. Sure, there are die-hard liberals who will never accept the fact that they are indeed accepted by the so-called “intolerant Right,” but I’m grateful that Queerty posted this story as an antithesis to that ideology.
Thanks, Larry, for being fair-minded.
Oops. That “Thanks” was meant for Eric Shorey, the author of the story, not Larry the Cable Dude. Thanks, Eric, for being a fair-minded journalist.
