"Good Morning, PART OF America!"

You go update your shit, Americans-with-Head-Up-Your-Ass Syndrome.
Yes, more bitching about the double-standard filled bullshit of Good Morning America's
ridiculous puritanical retarded-ass stance!
After Adam Lambert performed on a prime-time AMA show with what was labeled 'inappropriate' behavior by Oral Minority twats, Good Morning America reneged on Lambert's invite to perform live on their show.
Because of the time slot?
Because they have no time delay?
Because somebody complained?
Because they think he isn't professional and can't follow restrictions?
Because they avoid all controversial guests?
Naw. Because they're cowardly, pandering, dullards...and because they're FULL OF SHIT!
The show has featured plenty of topics that were not 'suitable' for young viewers.
They have had performers who normally do very suggestive performances.
They sucked George Bush's dick on national television for 8 damned years while the nation dove into the toilet, and they supported a war that killed thousands.
But two men kissing--on another program--poses a conflict?

Get real.
And the entire bogus controversy is indicative of exactly the problem that Lambert was attempting to side-swipe. A pervasive and troubling double-standard.
Female stars have dry-humped and done completely nasty stuff on stage at awards shows for years. Women can kiss each other. Male rock stars can hump and grab crotch and gyrate--so long as they are perceived or promoted as lady-killers and thereby considered appropriately heterosexual.
But a gay man doing the same routine automatically gets labeled inappropriate and obscene. Get over it already. As Sasha Cohen brilliantly displayed in BRUNO, this country goes nuts with glee for violence, but loses their mind with fear and hate when it comes to intimacy between two men.
High time for a cool change, baby.

The problem exemplified: LOCAL RADIO

"So what's all the fuss about anyway?"

Well, being ignored and demonized by others isn't restricted to the playgrounds.

Let's take a little slice of life from today, Monday November 23, 2009. I call it "Researching the local radio talk shows in Southwest Georgia."

The first talk show available is the "Rick and Bubba Show." Two rednecks talking trash about everyone and coming off as a poor-man's Fox News, ignorant and full of shit. 'Nuff said.' I have heard them before, unfortunately, and didn't even bother to try them today. The South may not ever 'rise' again, but it sure as shit still stinks the same one day to the next.

The second show is the "Bob and Sheri Show." This is actually a 50% great show, as Sheri is superb and intelligent. Her co-host, not so much. He's a tightly wound pseudo-snob. (No, arrogance is not dependent on great wealth or pedigree.) Today, a bit was discussed about a man arrested for being aroused while in the library watching wrestling.

A big to-do was made over "How could he be aroused?" "It must have been the ring girls." "I don't understand." and other ridiculous nonsense that he (Bob) engaged in with either the producer or some other male on air. In other words, the message is: The man being a homosexual is so vexing, so undesirable, so inconceivable, that we must silence it from the discussion so as to feel secure in our own fragile masculinity and heterosexuality. Beat a dead horse, fellas.

Third was the Morning Show on WOOF FM, with Amy and John. I can barely stand her voice or her whole goofball routine, so it's not a typical listen either. But in tuning in today, she was in the midst of a rant about the Twilight movie. (sigh.)

First she stated how only 20% of the audience was men (That might have been a statistic she read on movie sales.) She proceeds to explain as fact how the only men in the theatre she was at were boyfriends and husbands. WTF? Are you smoking crack? Are you a completely vapid B? In addition to chicks facing mid-life crises and needing to vamp on underage boys (like herself,) the largest population of the Twilight fan base is gay men. But we can't talk about that on the radio, naturally.

No, instead, we pretend once more that gay people do not even exist. Eradicate us from the consciousness even. She goes on to suggest that "single guys" (by which she obviously mean heterosexual men who haven't yet acquired their own personal snatch supply) should be free to go to the movie as a chance to hook up with some needy female who has been amped up from watching the movie. Yech! And all this lecherous cougar-like nastiness and trolling of movie theaters is acceptable, but acknowledging a hefty percentage of society (and their listening audience--Hello!) is not!? Whatever.

This seems par for the course.

By excluding even a hint or a reference to gay and lesbian men and women as part of the world, the not-so-hidden message becomes that we are not welcome to be part of the world. That we are less than other humans in the eyes of those in charge. Being a radio host is a big deal; you are the voice that guides many people through their day. By pretending that we don't exist, by going out of your way to ignore the reality of our existence, it's a slap in the face.

And for those who are hiding their true selves, it sets a dangerous precedent; "Stay hidden, if you know what's good for you. That's what we expect, and that's what your purpose is."

Two men laughing about a guy getting aroused by wrestlers is insulting the attraction and devaluing the person who felt the attraction. It also sends a clear message that anyone else who feels similarly should likewise be ashamed, and that such behavior is intolerable. "Mind your place."

No, thank you. You mind yours. You're stewards, and you have a responsibility. People make oversights, sure, and in the course of filling several hours with talk, not every moment can be grand. But these types of things sneak in all the time. And the people they adversely affect do remember them long after they're said and forgotten by the speaker.

Rather Fight Than Swish

"Not that there's anything wrong with swishnin'..."
but sometimes you have to become a fighter
in order to be a lover.
Love this image; it's from a release by the shown title
from Camp Records (undercover gay music from the 1960's.)

Words of Wisdom: Shakespeare

"to thine own self be true,
and it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man ."

-Polonius in HAMLET

It bears repeating, since it doesn't register or permeate
the membrane on the first few pass overs;


A lot of problems are solved or avoided all together by keeping
it simple. Honesty with one's own desires, needs, and makeup
is the only means of happiness and contentedness.
All else is illusion and waste of time.

I start every day by saying to myself:
"Imagine that you knew in advance that
THIS was to be your last day of life on the planet?"

Now, how do you enter the fray?
How do you live your life?
What are your priorities?
How much do your fears and insecurities (and other people's
dismissals) matter now?

Words of Wisdom: Tracy Chapman

"BORN TO FIGHT" by Tracy Chapman

They're tryin' to take away my pride
by stripping me of everyhing I own
They're tryin' to hurt me inside
And make me into a white man's drone
But this one's not for sale

And I was born to fight
I ain't been knocked down yet
I was born to fight
I'm the surest bet
There ain't no man no woman
No beast alive that can beat me
'Cause I'm born to fight

They're tryin' to dig into my soul
And take away the spirit of my god
They're tryin' to take control
And monitor my every thought
I won't let down my guard

And I was born to fight
I ain't been knocked down yet
I was born to fight
I'm the surest bet
There ain't no man no woman
No beast alive that can beat me
'Cause I'm born to fight

"HOW IT WORKS": by NBC Studios dick-heads: crushing GLEE


Ah, the light bulb people. G.E. and NBC: they bring contempt to life.

Too bad no light bulbs went off about the bad press!

First, you hear about a great new popular series called "GLEE" which has all the kids talking and is garnering considerable numbers, i.e. dollars.

So, invite them to participate in the holiday festivities of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Next, discover that the show is written and produced by openly gay Ryan Murphy and--shock of shock--as it deals with a high school glee club--it's gayer than Halloween!

Consequently, as a concerned NBC exec who values (certain) 'family values,' DIS-INVITE the cast from coming to perform at the parade.


A pox upon you, NBC. Screw you and your little bitch parade, too.

Today's Affirmation; Sissies No More!

Deep within you
is a spark
of power
has no limit
has not yet
been seen.

Dig deep,
breathe in,
hold tight.

You are stronger
than you know.

You are
far more
than the sum
of previous
or others'

Ask for
what you need,
provide for yourself
what is missing.

BE STRONG. It's more than
just an anthem; it's a way of life.

Don't be afraid to Love.

The enemy depends on
your apologies and

Don't be afraid to FIGHT!

Say it with me, now;

I have a right to exist.

I have a right to feel my feelings.

I have a right to have my own beliefs.

I have a right to my own values.

I have a right to my own desires.

I have a right to express all of my feelings and desires.

I have a right to be protected from violence.

I deserve to be treated with respect.

Now, when none of these things occur or are allowed...

I have the right--and the responsibility--to stand up for myself.

I have a duty to live the best life I can.

I have a responsibility to speak out against wrong thinking, whether it occurs in a group or one-on-one.

I have a responsibility to shine my light, despite objections and derision.

I will find the strength that is innate within me to persevere and thrive.

I will remember that 'breaking me down' and stealing my joy is exactly what the enemy wants.

"I will not lie down; I will not go quietly."

I will remember that lying about me is doing the enemy's job for them.

Assimilation is death of the heart, the soul, the mind, and the body.

I will forever be my own strongest, best friend.
