Thanks Javelin for a fun post idea. This is dedicated to you.
While this may come as a surprise, I don't think on gay issues very often. I know Javelin and others will be disappointed to find out I really could care less about other peoples sexual tendencies until it is forced into my life. But, as a Mexican-American that is honest enough to admit that I sometimes judge people by stereotypes, I can, when pressed, think of a few things that are the fault of "gays" as Javelin likes to call them.
1. When I go to get my hair done, I am afraid to have a straight man do my hair. Gay men have forced me to think that straight men cannot cut or style hair or even offer basic style advice as they are not in touch with their artistic side.
2. I blame gays for making the bow-tie a fashion faux-pas. Straight men are afraid to wear them because they are afraid of being called gay and gay men will not wear them because they are not as fashionable as a tie. I love the bow-tie and would love to see them outside proms and weddings once again.
3. I blame gay men for the continued popularity of platform stiletto heeled shoes. Women have fought long and hard to remove these evil shoes from the market. Cross-dressing gay men have continued to buy them with fervor and though the sizes of shoes available in this style have grown, women's ability to walk comfortably has not.
4. I blame gay people for the popularity of the comedian Jeff Dunham. He is not funny. He isn't even amusing. In fact, he isn't even so bad that you want to stay and watch the "train wreck." In the words of the teenagers I work with "He's gay!"
Sadly, for Javelin, I don't blame gay people for the immorality in the world. I don't blame them for crime. I don't blame them for the socialistic turn America is taking. I don't blame them for the hatred and discrimination in the world. I blame all those things on people who are too scared to stand up for whats right because they might offend any particular group. I blame it on those who look for hatred in others and by insults and antagonism fuel that hatred. I blame it on those who feel that by accusing another of hatred and bigotry, they are not hateful and bigoted themselves.
