Read, White, And Singing The Blues (Which Ann Called "Bellyaching" When Black Folks Do It - But Not Gays,...)

As a blogger, it's comforting to know I can always count on Ann Althouse:
“Selecting that Andrew Sullivan quote for this post, I didn't think about the fact that it's one gay man commenting on another gay man, but I'm thinking about it now,...”
She's really great because, no matter what she thinks she's talking about, there's always that moment - like the one above - where she goes off the rails and (garbage in/garbage out) you know there's no need to read further. 

 See, if I was to write a post on, say, Clarence Thomas, would Ann be like, "Wow - it's a black guy - actually talking about a black guy!"? No, she wouldn't (and never has) because the reality is A) there's nothing particularly remarkable about it - gays have always been Chatty Cathy's - and B) she's only saying it because she doesn't give half-a-fuck about blacks like she does gays. 

Everything they do is reason for her to do some really, really deep thinking.

Blacks, on the other hand, are just here to provide the Civil Rights argument for her kid - we're not actually people, or even a people (as she seems to think gays are) with issues to be respected or even thought about. 

If we were, she'd acknowledge blacks didn't die for homosexuality, and - being a lawyer - come up with some original arguments that don't involve dragging us where we don't belong nor (as every poll shows) want to be. 

We all know (from the full-court "Will & Grace" media blitz) everyone will bend over backwards not to offend gays right now. Blacks, not so much. Especially when it comes to gays and their supporters. We have to suck it up - still. I'm sure, subversive little fucks that they are, they get a special thrill from the association - knowing we don't want it made and doing it anyway - but that's not respect either, it's just pervs getting another hard-on and thinking we should be flattered to see it. 

 They never think, how blacks can be so important to their argument, but so unimportant - as human beings - that they'll walk over and/or appropriate our most treasured accomplishment. 

But sadly - when it comes to a certain strain of American - that's nothing new: 

No matter who's doing it, exploiting us is - still - as American as apple pie,...


  1. "The gay", it's what's for dinner now...every. single...night...

    Some folks are dead set on the gay being seen as normal -- or even better than normal.
    It would be a coup in making people bend, in realizing the notion of control over people, that's for sure.
    Once you could make people believe that something like the gay is normal, just apple brown betty wholesome everyday (and not, well, kinda strange to be honest), then you can make them believe all manner of stuff.

    Black folks couldn't give them that key -- for obvious reasons.
    Let's face it: a black man or woman doing the deed with a white woman or man is still what? Yeah, a man and a woman doing what men and women are wont to do with one another...pretty damn apple pie, everyday, nothing mind shocking about that really.
    But the gay? Now that's reality tripping right there (sorry gay people, I don't hate you necessarily, but let's be honest: you can't very well with a straight face, honestly argue that what y'all are doing is SOP, so why the push to make people think it is?).

    And on top of which: just like sex isn't everything/everything isn't always about sex...that goes double for the gay. So why does it have to be kept interjected into everything now? I mean, the culture's already overloading with let's put the gay sex into the mix now too? 24/7365? And expect people to not get tired of this?

    That's my take on it anyway. I'll denounce myself as a bigot ahead of time.


  2. Now I'm just going to blather and rant:

    Already had to labor through that "magic Negro with secret, exotic knowledge of the universe" bullshit -- which was bogus, and sorry but dehumanizing as shit imhao. But black folks were just too damn normal..not magical enough I guess.
    So know we're going to get it hot and heavy with the "magickal gay":Have a pesky personal problem that just won't go away?
    Apply some Magic Gay to chase it away and brighten your a rainbow way; we'd have to say -- you'll be glad you did! By the folks at Acme that brought you Blamo! 19.99 plus shipping and handling, get a second one free on your first order.

    WTF? Give me a break!
