TV Justice Goes Gay!

judge-david-young-thumb2.jpg
Gay just got another euphemism: “colorful”.

That’s how Sony Pictures describes their latest judicial personality.

Young will take boobs and their tubes by storm this fall as television’s first gay judge. The good judge, who lives in Miami with his equally law-abiding boyfriend, Judge Scott Bernstein, gets the press release work out over at the show’s website:

Quick-witted, provocative and compassionate, Judge David Young arrives to daytime television straight from his native Miami, where he achieved local celebrity for his creative courtroom approach and his tough, but fair sentencing.

Known for his fierce intelligence and occasional bursts into show tunes, Judge David Young brings a refreshing perspective to the daytime audience.

The best part of the show? The not-nearly clever, yet still amusing tagline, of course: “Justice with a snap”.

A judge “straight” from Miami with a penchant for show tunes? GLAAD will either cream themselves or scream themselves to death. We’re betting on the former.

So, what kind of “creative courtroom approach” will Young be taking?

[One] creative judgment included dropping an elderly opera singer’s disorderly conduct charges in exchange for a virtuoso courtroom performance.

We can’t wait to see how he handles irate hookers.

(Thanks for the heads up, Faggoty-Ass-Faggot. You’re a doll.)

      To tell ya the truth, I’m really looking forward to seeing this show. Normally I can’t stand court room programs, but I can’t wait to see Judge Young be all pissy and get up in some defendant’s face.

      First gay TV judge after Ed Koch, of course.

      So, in conclusion, mainstream media if a woman (Judge Judy, Judge Hatchett) gets up in a defendant’s face and shows some attitude, she’s a castrating bitch, but if a gay man does it? Fabulous! The ratings will soar!

      Yup, another point scored for the minstrel route.

      Minstrel show crap, hooray. How lowest-common-denomiator humiating. I’d honestly rather watch RuPaul act as judge.

      I’ve seen JDY’s show and can’t believe he is on TV! He is the most annoying person I’ve ever watched. His constant monotone is annoying. He is arrogant and how can he possibly be fair if he is always pushing his own agenda on his show? Most shows it ends up being about what he stands for and isn’t it supposed to be about the defendant and plantiff?
