WEEK IN COMMENTS

COMMENTS: A Death In Texas, Chuck Norris’ Homophobia, Lohanthony, And More

Time for the Queerty Week in Comments, with the most compelling, thought-provoking or just downright bitchy comments that came directly from you, the readers!

“As a gay Texan, I really resent when people talk about our state like its the source of all anti-gay hate. I went to college in San Francisco, and had gay slurs yelled at me publicly there three different times, which never happened in Houston. Yes, a lot of bigots live in Texas, but they do in California as well, and there are plenty of non-bigots in both places. And may I remind ya’ll that anti-gay bigotry is written into both states’ constitutions. Also, Houston is the largest city ever to have an openly lesbian mayor, which is something SF has never had.

Let’s talk about how we can make queer folks’ lives better in Texas, California, and everywhere instead of using gay rights as a reason to argue over whose state is better.”

“Tsk, tsk, Norris—that extramarital affair you had produced a child. Whatever happened to those good old-fashioned “sanctity of marriage” values you’ve been harping on about? NOM will be very upset with you but they’ll forgive you after you send them a nice fat check and all will be well again. Must be fun being a bigot.”

“Cute kid with personality plus. I could eat him up. Yeah. But he’s got to lose the ‘like’ crutch in his speech. I’m talking, like, if you don’t cut out the ‘like,’ I’m like gonna, like, turn you off in, like, a couple of seconds.”

“Big, brave coppers! Haul out the pepper-spray! Try to provoke the crowd into doing something on which they can be charged, or at the very least legitimize your roughing them up. After all, things have been quiet and boring for you, and you need an opportunity to flex your muscles and play MACHO MAN. Of course, pepper spray isn’t very macho, is it? I wonder how many people have wondered about the average IQ among legal thugs like you?”

“Yes. Everyone should get involved in all social rights issues. We are all affected by the dehumanizing of populations of people. Environmental problems are tied with health and the ability to live a full and satisfying life. These nontraditional gay causes affect the LGBT community. I feel the Queer community should get involved, even if the only reason is because LGBT people can be found everywhere.”
