    Blog Fight

    Well, well, well, my friends, it looks like we have a blog fight. Long story short, there is a blog devoted to criticizing Jessica McBride. Another local liberal blogger left a comment there referring to Jessica as a “cunt.” Later, in a post on his own blog, he posts an entry claiming that the true meaning of the word is (paraphrasing) “a stupid or silly person.” Still later, after receiving negative feedback regarding the use of that term, he posts an apology to both Jessica and anyone else who was offended. My thoughts can best be summed up in the following bullet points:

    • How like a liberal to back off a position on an issue after being criticized by an “offended” group!
    • We all know that the dictionary definition of “bitch” is “female dog,” yet when anyone uses “bitch” we know exactly what they’re referring to. Hmmm. Illusory Tenant is too clever of a writer to make these kinds of excuses.
    • While I completely understand Jessica’s offense, and she makes fabulous points about it on her blog, I feel that society in general is too easily offended by words. My generation grew up with the gangster rap and we use language differently. See Dlisted and old Savage Love columns, for example. In that spirit, I am now identifying myself as “A Cuntservative” on my blog! Trust me, someday you old people will be voting for us cuntservatives.

    Why people have a problem with the gays...

    (I’m not talking about truly committed homophobes here. I’m talking about people who don’t openly say anything bad about gay people, but go in a voting booth and drop the “No” on allowing gay marriage. I’m talking about those who wouldn’t say anything derogatory when possible gay people might possibly be in earshot, but feel free to let the fag-bombs fly around friends and family…)
    It’s because homosexuals openly display their sexuality. For the average person, homosexual sex is a weird, kinky practice. Heterosexual sex (regular penis-to-vagina) is the norm. Other sex acts commonly performed between heterosexuals have an element of weird-kinkiness to them; like any aspect of sexual behavior, they aren’t typically discussed in public. Less-common acts between heterosexuals are treated with the same type of derision found in the typical response to homosexuality. The average American reacts with fear and disgust at even “normal” sexual behavior when that behavior is displayed in the mass media. It is difficult for many to fathom that one’s sexuality is a major feature of personality. Homosexual sex is obviously a defining characteristic of the homosexual culture; therefore, many people react with the typical fear and disgust. If most Americans could somehow be convinced that gays don’t actually have sex (ever), that they just live together like roommates (or, I would argue, OLD MARRIED COUPLES); homosexuality may be fully accepted in the American culture. Or if we could change the bizarre double standards and contradictions in how sexuality is popularly viewed, then maybe homosexuality may become more mainstream. Yeah, good luck with that.
