In a piece a little less restrained than my posts (here and here) on the topic, Chad at Cake or Death? weighs in with his thoughts on GLAAD’s rush to judgment when Today film critic Gene Shalit called Jake Gyllenhaal’s character a “sexual predator.” When his openly gay son heard of the brouhaha, he faulted GLAAD for his defaming his father. Given the speed with which some gay activists to take on any with whom they disagree, Chad writes:
No longer are we looking for mere acceptance. You not only have to tolerate us, but you must like us, love us, watch us do what we do, praise us, and generally fellate our egos until we’ve had enough and decide to roll over to go to sleep. If you don’t? You’re a bigot.
While I don’t agree with everything in Chad’s piece, I agree with his conclusion that gay organizations today “continually divide the population, fighting for the little things by highlighting our differences instead of fighting for the larger ones by illustrating our similarities.” As I’ve said before about another of Chad’s posts, just read the whole thing for a taste of his wit and wisdom.
