Itty Bitty Titty Sparks Gay Battle

A gay film festival’s poster sparked a brief culture war in St. Lawrence County, New York. Out at the Movies festival originally placed an advertisement on a public board at the Department of Social Services, but “offended” employees objected and got the poster removed. What was so offensive? Titles like Butch Jamie and Itty Bitty Titty Committee, apparently.

Now the gays are going ape-shit. Said one irate activist, “The real issue is that we know in our society there is homophobia. County policy cannot be that we give into that ignorance.”

County administrator Karen M. St. Hilaire insists they’re not trying to oppress the gays, but are honoring public servants: “This is not about pitting gays and lesbians versus people who are heterosexual. This is about what’s appropriate in the workplace.” St. Lawrence County’s attorney Peter Lekki didn’t find the posters harassing and said they should be reposted, although some words have now been edited out.

Protesters still aren’t happy, however, and have asked supporting politicos to wear rainbow pins in solidarity. Democrats Patrick Turbet and Tedra L. Cobb, Canton agreed. Said Cobb: “I think all of us should be cognizant of the fact that we did not act appropriately.” That lady obviously knows there’s nothing wrong with itty bitty titties.

    I am so sick of whiny activists. Whether on the left or right. Of course there are battles to fight, but seriously, sometimes I’m like shut the fuck up you little whiny bitches go fight something worthwhile. You know some people probably don’t want TITT in the work place, I don’t. It is in poor taste among other issues.

    I’m so sick of whiny commenters. It is in poor taste among other issues. (whatever that means)

    I’m so tired of whiny public servants who have been given more power than God through their unions. Sometimes I’m like shut the fuck up you little whiny bitches go do the jobs your over paid to do.

    Meh. I am up for the fight, when I think it’s worthwhile, but I can see why “titty” on a poster in the workplace might be an issue, gay-themed or otherwise.

    ‘Butch Jamie’, on the other hand,… I don’t get the offense, unless of course there were more vulgar words on the poster not mentioned above.
