THE CENTER CAN'T HOLD, THINGS FALL APART
MERE ANARCHY IS LOOSED UPON THE WORLD
Just how fucked up is the DisUnited States of America?
I am sure by now most of you heard about the Republican who wants to change the name of Interstate 69 (I-69) in Indiana because it has "sexual connotations". Well, try this story on for size.
DOWN WITH THE FAGS, DRESS LIKE THE HITLER YOUTH!!!!!
From the AP today:
GENDER BENDER A DRAG, TEXANS DECIDE
A long running tradition in which boys dress like girls and vice versa in a tiny Texas school district won't be held today after a parent complained over what she saw as the event's homosexual overtones.
As a substitute for "TWIRP Day," the Spurger, Tex schools, from elementary to senior high, decided to hold "Camo Day" - with black boots and Army camoflouge to be worn by everyone who wants to participate. TWIRP, for "The Woman Is Requested to Pay," was meant to give boys and girls a chance to reverse social roles. - Associated Press
The way this story summarizes the paranoia, fear, intolerance and militaristic tendencies of modern America is beyond unbelievable.
It is my experience that gay men and women (at least the ones who are my close friends) represent everything the rest of the people in this country should be. Smart, educated, successful, well off, tolerant, loving, affectionate and peaceful.
We would have been better off if Texas had remained an independent republic. Shame on you all.
