But today I had to layeth the smacketh down on a closed-minded homphobic Republican... being a Republican myself it REALLY wrankles me when people perpetuate negative stereotypes (intolerance, homophobia, and just being generally judgemental perched atop their ivory towers) This person has claimed in the past she can tell people's intentions/demeanors from reading their hand gestures (thus the first point):
A few points:
1) I know you know that Ellen was pushing her sexuality on the world from reading her hand gestures.
2) I can read bowel movements... yours tell me you're full of shit.
3) Close-minded intolerant people like you make me ASHAMED to be a Republican.... Being a Repblican is supposed to mean getting to know people for who they are as individuals, not making broad sweeping generalizations about them because of their ethnic background, gender, sexual orientation, religious affiliation, or what groups they belong to. There are some people I like and some I don't like... But everyone I either like or dislike I've given a fair chance. They gained or lost my respect on their merits as an individual, not from their ethnic backgrounds, sexual orientations, or genders. What the hell ever happened to that? Other than watching her on TV, you don't truly KNOW Ellen DeGeneres any more than I do, any more than you know anyone else you criticize from your ivory tower. I don't like nor dislike Ellen-- never met her in person. But if I did, I'd give her the same chance I do everyone. I don't like how she hosted the Oscars last night, but they say that's the toughest gig in showbiz and good or bad I've got to give her props for putting herself out there to at least try...
... and on that note, I'm out.
