It's been awhile since I donned this guise

Once in great while, I just have to take a break. Though in reality that isn't what happens. I still read the papers, LA and NY Times, and of course, I'm in book stores all the time so I can't miss the new books. So when I say take a break, I just mean I'm not going to go public with my thoughts for a bit. But now I'm back and the first thing I want to write about is the big deal over Paris Hilton and the gay rights parade. Ironic isn't it? Paris apparently isn't moral enough for the gay community. Hmmm? Don't the neocon and christian right think of gays as immoral? What's going on? Is there another level of morality that we're just learning about, some astral plane of morality that maybe was best explained in that thrilling little short story by T. Sturgeon, If All Men Were Brothers, Would You Let Your Sister Marry One? Or is this just more PR like the Katie Holmes kidnapping?

It is funny a gay commenting her on being whiney and self absorbed. I work in a hospital and the gay guys are nothing but whiney when it comes to getting glass out of their foot or getting a shot. What the fuck???? I've watched two gay parades in my life. There's is so much obscenity open out in the streets at these events, that I can't imagine any gay would find Paris a problem being a role model. Jack asses.

Well, I thought about it a lot but out here it all boils down to pub. Every issue raised just acts as publicity for whatever issue the user wants to address. Hate gays, see how this works to support the why they don't deserve freedom of choice. Love gays, see how this works to show how just like straights they have become.
