Here’s what this silly sophomoric stunt resulted in:
- Late-night joke fodder for Leno, Conan & Kimmel
- Absolutely no impact whatsoever
- Proof that gays are not oppressed and that we have it pretty well off in the USA vs. nearly every other nation around the world.
Day Without A Gay participation spotty – My Way News
In San Francisco’s gay Castro district, several residents and merchants said they endorsed the cause but did not think a work stoppage or spending boycott was practical, given the poor economy and how quickly the strike was organized.
“My employers have always been there in every possible way. I didn’t feel comfortable discomfiting them when they have gone out of their way to be there for me,” said Paul Ellis, 51, a manager at Cliff’s Variety hardware store.
Folks, blacks in America in the 1950s and 1960s couldn’t eat in the same places as whites, they could not go to the same schools as whites, they couldn’t live in the same neighborhoods as whites, they were routinely sought out by police and beaten, they were routinely murdered and no one cared or investigated, they were routinely framed for rape and murder of whites.
It is a complete insult and offensive to me to compare “gay rights” in 2008 to the fight for African-American civil rights in the 1960s.
Now — can someone please justify how gays are oppressed in America given how far we have come and how one cannot possibly compare the “plight” of gays in 2008 to what America’s blacks went through during much of this continent’s modern civilization.
The Gays(tm) need to get off the high horse pretty quick.Â Otherwise the obvious gains that the Gay Left wants to ignore are going to be reversed.
PS — And by the way, those of us who DID go to work got punished.Â My boss made me work overtime to make up for all of the gays who stayed home in bed.Â Â (No, not really.Â My boss is awesome.)
