What surprises me is how surprised so many people now seem to be about the clear jingosim, chauvanism, bigotry, and lack of compassion extant in the right wing these days. As though it’s new.

In any case, I don’t watch “Dancing With The Stars”, and I don’t have strong feelings one way or another about Chaz Bono.

What I do have strong feelings about is allowing people to make their own choices without oppression or attempted oppression.

And I have strong feelings about the deleterious effect Fox “News” has had on the national conversation.

But, as usual, Jon Stewart brings Fox’s hypocricy, bigotry, immaturity, and heartlessness into stark relief.

  1. Just ignore him, he copies and pastes the same text on any LGBT video he can find. Without the courage to actually defend his position.

    When you are the former daughter turned son of Sonny and Cher, being a performer has to be in the blood and Chaz’s got it for sure. He’s got a hot in Lacey.

  5. i dont care that gay..he looks and sings and acts like a woman..which from a man is disturbing gay or not..just looking at him i wouldnt be suprised if he became a woman someday is pretty much my point.

  6. Let me spell this out for you. You say “I advocate love toward everyone, regardless.” My definition of ‘everyone’ is everyone. That means people who are gay, straight, queer, transgender, bisexual, men, women, 3rd gender, adults, children, etc. are ‘everyone’. Your sexuality and gender identity are of you. By denying that of them, you are denying the whole person. If you love someone, you accept them for who they are – every of them.

  13. Also The bible says the road to heaven is narrow a thief cannot come in, You cannot come in any other way you must follow the straight narrow path, The bible says many people will find it hard to get into heaven and he says to them “quoting the bible” get away from me I never knew you. So if you are following the world and not God you will share the fate.
