Crazy stuff

Gay and Lesbian rights is really not my issue.  I’m straight but my sister, Beth, was gay.  It wasn’t a problem for me or my other siblings.  My parents had some difficulty at first, but then, because they loved their daughter, accepted her as she was.  I was very proud of them.

I don’t understand the problem some folks have with gays, frankly.  But then I saw this clip and, well, it all became clear to me.

Now I do understand the anti-gay folks.  They are bat-shit crazy.  But then again, it would be terrible if there were more “homociders” and “orgiers” in the world.  So I guess I just better rethink this tolerance and understanding of mine.

Because, after all, what would Jesus do?

  1. Funny Lorre, I didn’t think of that — spelling P-E-N-I-S! She does seem to be savoring it, doesn’t she.

    And I find that bigots do tend to do lots of “research.” Especially those who are so vehemently anti-gay. Those are the ones you find in the closet. But this woman, I think she is just plain crazy.

  2. I bet Jesus would never appear on Winter Wipeout. For someone not into being gay, this lady did an awful lot of research.
    Who can set a law against her hat?
    It’s kind of funny that she can’t say PENIS, but she can spell it.

  3. The scary thing, is that the ramblings and “logic” in the woman’s mind is the same as in my mother’s head just before we had to hospitalize her for having a complete psychotic break. This woman is out there, shopping, dealing with the public, probably driving, and is so out of touch with reality that it’s scary! Speaks to the sad state of mental health care in our country.

    • You said it. Mental health care in the US is terrible — and unless there is imminent danger to the person or to someone else, there is no help you can give. Sad, sad state.

      I’m hoping the family of this woman are embarrassed enough to try to help her.

  4. HOLY CRAP!!!! I would love to see the faces of the people she is actually speaking to. I would not have been able to maintain a straight face. What a bunch of disconnected nonsensical words.

  5. That is a crazy bat-shit hat she’s wearing. I can’t even start with these people. My proximity to SF makes me immune to verbal flying rodent detritus.

  6. You’re too kind in your description of her.
    And obviously, Jesus would kill the gays, their families, their friends, their pets, and then go out for a nice meal.

  7. That was a sad commentary on the sector of people like her – but yes – tolerance of others is one of the greatest challenges.

    • Yes, Frank. It is sad that there are (1) people who are so fixated on gays/socialists/fill-in-the-blank; and (2) crazy people who are not being helped in our society by society and/or their families (which if you have ever tried to help a crazy person who is not a danger to him/herself or anyone else) is very hard indeed.

  8. I have just one question for you after watching this clip. Sorry two questions.
    Who is this lady? and how did she reach there?

    Like

    • She is a just citizen who is allowed to speak at a public “town hall meeting” where folks are encouraged to make statements and express their beliefs about various proposals coming before the government.

      Obviously, this woman has a more serious problem than most, but
      more and more, though, people get up there and rant.

      I hope her family members are embarrassed enough by seeing this video to get her the help she so obviously needs.

    ignorance = fear. And fear has been the primary motivation of religion for centuries, and governments more recently. It’s also a great sales tool. Look how many ads are based on fear (losing something, losing someone, being less than, plagues, locusts, famine and car insurance).

    Crazy is putting it mildly (bat shit or otherwise). Seriously, is this what freedom of speech is supposed to be about? You can just spew off crap like this with nothing to verify even one statement. Perhaps we could put something in fine print that you actually have to have an IQ that you can’t count on one had.

  13. I beginning to think that it’s not only that people fear what they don’t understand; it’s that people fear what they don’t understand about themselves. What I mean to say is that all this passionate hatred must come from a place deep inside that they are afraid to face.

    • That’s quite true. And the folks who are especially anti-gay so often end up being gay. (Michelle Bachmann’s husband is the first one that comes to mind, but the list is long.) Folks who are trying to stamp out the gay in themselves. Or who are opposed to other things as well.

    • I agree Tops. I love it that we have the ability to speak our minds without fear of repercussions. I really do. I take advantage of that freedom here on my blog all the time.

      But my fear with this woman is that she is just a more extreme version of the hate speak many people are spewing. Without being shouted down by more reasonable voices. WE reasonable folks are often just too damn polite.

  19. It is by far the biggest waste of time, money and resources to spend talking, debating and arguing this subject. If people want to marry, let them marry! Aren’t there some pedophiles to find, children to educate, families to feed and healthcare issues to be solved? And these are the people we entrust to lead the world? Insane.

    • Glad to share it, John. As I said, gay rights isn’t really my platform, but fairness absolutely IS. It seems these days that it’s OK to be crazy. As long as one is Christian, votes Republican. Although I am always puzzled by how Christianity fits in with these Christians.
