So today Iggy Azalea either was fired from Pittsburgh’s gay pride event or got fired because several years ago she tweeted that when two men whisper she thinks they’re “homos”. Despite that it was years ago and people change, she still needed to wear the scarlet “B” for “bigot” and pull out of any pride events.
Okay. I don’t like Iggy Azalea and I don’t personally use the word “homo” unless “sekshual” it attached to it. As someone who has had homosexual relationships I’m not offended by homo. Pretty much the only thing that offends me involves actual actions or a personal insult from someone I know so I have a hard time with this BS social shaming from people in glass houses who toss stones the other direction.
Lettuce Sea for a moment, shall we, what are some of the pejoratives used by the gay community of late.
Word of the Gay: Fish
“Fish” is a derogatory term used among gay males to describe women. The term insinuates that women’s private parts smell bad.
As in “fishface” (gay male who can pass for a woman) or “have you ever gone fishing?” (ever done it with a woman)
Now, from a culture who thinks that we females should have a sense of humor about this:
I find it a little interesting that they lack forgiveness for their “emcee” especially when the parade will have a lot of this
Now, I am all for people saying “fish face” and dressing up like no real women ever look and popping out fake babies all in the sense of good fun as long as that fun is reciprocated.
If not, I think women should revoke the “hood pass” on using derogatory terms that slander us as this black queer feminist blogger also advocates for.
But that’s not what I really want. Personally, I think things have gone too far and we should all learn to just flip people off and then get over it–especially when the intention is not there to hurt anyone.
Today I was reading Celebitchy’s take on Jerry Seinfeld saying we’ve gotten too PC for comedy. Jerry told a story about his 14 year old daughter telling him he was sexist because he said she’d want to start meeting boys soon. This is a father talking about his own child, somewhat being off the cuff and “Agent Bedhead” responded with this:
Well I do agree that the PC crowd can go overboard at times. It can be difficult to gauge an audience, especially because humor is so subjective. But it’s crappy for Jerry to discount his daughter’s feelings on the word “sexism.” Jerry isn’t a woman. He’s not a member of a marginalized class, and I hope he’s not pooh-poohing his daughter’s feelings to her face. It’s not his place to tell someone else how they should feel.
In the United States a rich white girl living with millionaire parents in New York City to be described as a “member of the marginalized class” is fucking rich. How fucking marginalized is she from her limo? Also, tell someone how they feel? Bitch, you run a gossip site where you make fun of people daily and constantly talk about how people should feel. What the fuck is wrong with you?
The absolute insanity and cluelessness of the progressives lately is mind-boggling.
Do you know why I don’t care if RuPaul says “fish face” or “serving fish”? Because he shows a genuine love for women every day of his life. He is an earnest man. So he says one thing I don’t like–so what? So what?
Are we this intolerant and touchy that we can’t see who our friends really are? Is this how progressives actually treat their friends with a checklist of what you can and cannot say?
Ru? Call at fish face. Call it daytime realness. Say that catch of the day is snapper. I don’t care. I love you anyway.
Psst! Her pussy was on fire!
