For Entertainment purposes only.

Ok. So I got a bone to pick. It’s been bothering me for a while, but I keep going back and forth about posting it.

The other day, while browsing AI forums, I came across the link for the Bill O’Reilly segment about Adam Lambert. Kid must really be special to make me watch any BoR segment. Ugh.

I have no doubts that when the night falls, this guy, O’Reilly is exactly all the things he’s prejudice about. The skeletons in his closet belong to the Museum of Natural History, right beside the T-Rex.

Anyway.

So, on this segment, they (Bill and 2 republican Sarah Palin fangirls women) were discussing somebody else’s private life. That somebody else, was Adam Lambert.

Ok. Stop.

Note: Guess what, Bill. There was NOTHING embarrassing about those pictures! Not one thing. Zero. None. If anything, they were kinda delish (I hate when I use RR’s lingo, but I can’t help myself), in a “I’m living vicariously through you” kinda way. So fuck you.

As I was saying, those two gals were asked if they thought that the fact that Adam was “allegedly” (snerk) gay could hurt his chances of winning AI.

The women, to BoR’s surprise (I take he never heard of AI’s fraus..hehe), gushed over Adam, so the segment went nowhere.

So, what’s my problem? Here it is. The whole thing made me wonder what those women (or some other BoR viewers) would/did do if/when they had to vote on Prop 8.

See, I’ve seen many saying that they love Adam on stage, and what a great talent he is, and how sweet and well-mannered he seems to be..etc..and so on… But would/did their respect extend to his actual rights? Or it would be one more case of “I have nothing against them personally, I just don’t believe it’s right because of my beliefs” kinda thing.

How many of Adam’s fans (or any other gay artist. I don’t wanna use the guy as flag for anything) actually voted ‘yes’ on Prop 8? How many of those people think he’s the ‘bee’s knees’, but you know, until they cross their “personal beliefs”. Then, it’s all “fuck ’em fags and their shameful (or “embarrassing” right o’R?) lifestyle.” I really hope, for the sake of humanity or at least society, those so-called “fans”, can see that a good person is a good person and a bad person is…..well, one that wants to take other people’s rights away.

I don’t get it and I never will. I admit of having a “head start” because homosexuality was never taboo in my family. There were no closets to hide and everything was always treated as natural as it should be. My uncle was gay and often, at my grandma’s house, half of the people in the room (or, better yet, in the kitchen, laughing our asses off! Good times… <3) were gay too.

Some people are attracted to the opposite sex. Some to the same one. Some for both. Whatever.

One can believe in whatever they want, I don’t care what, but EQUAL RIGHTS should never, EVER be at stake. Ever.

So, please, don’t love your gay “for entertainment purposes only”. Evolution will thank you.

    I was watching Chelsea last night and apparently he (Billy O) made some statement saying that the pictures were embarrassing and that his sexual orientation should affect the voting for AI because he would be representative of America if he wins. Lordy, do I hate homophobes.

    Also, I saw you posted that Cheeks video on a more recent post. Love him! I posted that same video on my facebook 🙂
