Much more busyness so no posting lately. A couple of things making me insanely angry. The last straw was this interview of ignorant homophobe Paul Weyrich from the Free Congress Foundation by Michele Norris on NPR this afternoon. I almost slammed on the breaks in the middle of traffic, it made me so angry. It happens right away so you don't have to listen to the whole thing.

Conservative Groups Call for Accountability on Foley

If you don't want to listen to it (and I don't recommend it if you are trying for a low stress day) he said that Foley shouldn't have been in charge of the Missing and Exploited Children's Caucus because the Republican leadership knew he was gay and as we all know "gay men are preoccupied by sex."

Luckily straight men never think about sex. And "straight" men who are obsessed with homosexuality never think about sex at all. Let alone obsess about everyone else's sex. Dirty, filthy, sexy sex.

I think it's ridiculous how the straight worldview takes every opportunity to treat anything same sex related as worse than their own cases of the same problem: for example, how so many people leap to the fact that Foley was harrassing underage boys, and how they link pedophilia incorrectly with homosexuality. What about all those men who are pedophiles who seek out girls? Pedophilia is pedophilia. Sexuality is sexuality. They're two different things. One is about power and abuse, the other about attraction. People really need to look more closely at their beliefs and how illogical they are sometimes.

And you need to update. And send me that tax and business info! Arigatou!
