Sticks and Stones

I recently received an e-mail from someone I don't know who accuses me of bigotry (that's what it says in the subject line—"bigotry") and writes: "I used to love your [site], but what is with all the white bashing? After all racism is racism. I am Cherokee Indian by the way and you never hear us complain about what people did to us, so why should the Africans and the Asians? Give it up and move into the modern world where diversity is king!"

Apparently, I hate white people now (maybe I should stop letting them put their penises in my mouth) and am wholly unaware of the multicultural society in which I live (I should go look up "melting pot" in the encyclopedia and learn a thing or two).

As I pondered all this, I decided that now would be a good time to check in with the tweens on QueerSighted to see the latest round of angry High School Musical-related comments, which keep on coming and mercilessly won't stop:

* I don't even know what to say. You would get a zero if that was a graded essay. No structure, and your not supporting your arguments with should grow up. and did you know that homophobic people are more likely to be gay than people who accept homosexuality? think about that.

* those dance moves are NOT easy. It took a LOT of hard work and persperation. So if you think your the guy who know's everything, I'd like to see you dance ALL the dance moves to HSM 1 and 2 while singing and you will see how much work it takes to make a masterpiece.

* How insanely ignorant can you possibly be? High School Musical is a movie targeted towards children and pre-teens, not middle-aged cynics who are in the middle of a midlife crisis and have nothing better to do with their time. I guess you have to have a lot of time on your grimy, judgmental hands to be analyzing a CHILDREN'S MOVIE. I understand the fact that everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but it is simply unnecessary to voice it in such a manner as this. I'm going to make an assumption that you're envious of the teenage stars -- who are about 60 years younger than you, I'm guessing -- because they, number one, got SO MUCH positive feedback about the movie, and number two, made so much more money in one movie than you will EVER make in a lifetime writing stereotypical columns. As a journalist to another journalist, this piece is garbage.

* Dude, You're such a fag. I like the HSM movies, I'm a dude, and not gay. You're just a fuckin retard to start this thread. If you don't like the movies, don't make this thread, go sit in a freaking dark corner and bitch and complain about it all you want, but no one else cares about what you think. I truely think that no one loved you enough when you were a kid, so you have to go around spoiling everyone elses time just to make yourself feel better. So just stfu.

...I agree with absolutely everything that was said about me, except the part where it says that I have grimy hands. I do not have grimy hands. I use this, bitches!:


  1. I would also like to see you dance all the dances in HSM 1 and 2. Preferably with Pork Chop dancing backup.

  2. Mmmm. Aloe.

    Why can't people grow senses of humor? I'm completely unsure as to why they have to have a problem with everyone else.

    Dag, yo.

    Agreed, with Cheryl.

  3. Got to love those who assume that you are homophobic...considering that they are reading that article on Queersighted.
    I would love to see PORK CHOP dancing to the HSM soundtracks...or perhaps, since he doesn't fancy movement, to just sit there and look quizzical. Sheer genius.

  4. I would prefer to see Pork Chop at dance rehearsal while you critique from the background all the while munching those delicious shrimp flavored chips. There's a video for the gaybloggies!

    And yes, if you're going to hate us white folks, please stop putting our penii in your mouth. It's duplicitous to say the least.

    Love the "Dude, you're such a fag," line in the queersighted post.

    Well duh?

  5. Cheryl: I can't do all the HSM dances because it takes hard work AND perspiration. I don't perspire. Therefore, it wouldn't work.

    Fleshie: I hear that aloe is also good for women to rub on their hoo-has to keep them soft and tender. Since I am a man, I don't know of such things. I'm just passing along the info.

    Sterling: What I also love is that one commenter thought that "homophobic" meant that you were gay. So he kept saying things like, "The Bible doesn't like it for you to be homophobic. Being homophobic is a sin. Stop being so homophobic."

    The New Me: The Gaybloggies would never have me because, apparently, nobody knows whether I am homophobic (as in, I hate gays) or I am homophobic (as in, I am gay).

  6. I will keep the hoo-hahing aloe advice in the back of my mind for future reference, thanks!
