WHERE ARE MY SHOOOOOOEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS
First thing I see checking my flist this morning? A variety of posts about this madness.

For the lazy: President of a company that sells gardening stuff watches Cold Case and Without A Trace on TV. The former has two men realizing they are quite gay for each other and hug. The latter had a lesbian couple hook up at the end and kiss. He sends an email to every one of the customers on his mailing list about it, telling them to email CBS about how they should stop pushing the gay agenda.

I... what? Dammit, that's not what I like seeing first thing in the morning! What a tard. He calls it "family friendly entertainment." Don't both those shows have all sorts of violence and abuse and murder? He's fine with watching all that with his kids, according to the email, but two ladies liplocking? NOOOOOOO!


Sigh.

The best (worst) bit is that he's so adamant that's he's not a bigot when he's blatantly condemning an entire group of people. I mean, I know that's been done by people of his same opinion before but it's kidn of appalling that none of them notice that it's contradictory.
I'm not a fan of the Silent Hill series (never actually played any of them) but I just read this about the decision to change the main character:

"It quickly became clear however Harry never acted like a masculine character. He was constantly dizzy, fainting, talking to himself, screaming and in fact was very vulnerable. We didn't want to betray the nature of the game by changing the character's feelings and motivations, so we felt it was better to change to a female protagonist and retain all those important qualities. I don't want people to think that I have been "politically correct" because we changed Harry into Rose. There is no political correctness in Silent Hill."


I think... I think that that is LESS politically correct than leaving the main character as a dude! Men aren't allowed to be dizzy fainting vulnerable so they had to stick a woman in there to do it? That is BULLLLLLLLLLLL ;aklsdhf;awheg;iahg. GIRLS ARE WIMPY HARRY MUST BE A GIRL NOW. Graaaah. Frankly I think it'd be more effectively scary to have a guy flipping the fuck out because we don't see it as often. If I saw that Vin Diesel or somebody was scared I'd be way more likely to be scared.

and anyway that's the lamest justification ever.
I think the people below me really are going to make a habit of thumping. INCESSANTLY. They were going when I came home around 4:30 and they're still going now at around 7.

HONESTLY.

Me stomping the floor means YOU SHUT UP.

>:O

Ugh. I need to study chemistry and read biology. :(

(I did make a new icon last night though!)
