I’m not one to beat a dead horse, but let’s go back to that ignorant ass clown known as Tyler Oakley. You made a video about how homophobes are on the way out. You claimed that they were on the wrong side of history, and that this country will no longer tolerate their intolerance.
How bizarre, considering you referred to these opponents as “bitch” continually throughout the piece that lasted all of two minutes. You also cast a man professing to be straight in the video, and he portrayed gays in the reductive, tired stereotypes in which you seem to find offense.
Not to mention the fact that a few studies on the rising tide of support for gay marriage in no way indicates that homophobia, sexism, transphobia, or racism have been eradicated in this country. If you need me to discuss the intersectionality of oppression and the firmly entrenched institutionalization of these concepts, please ask.
Bravo to those belonging to gay straight alliances in their high schools; their work is important and a great first step. We need gay straight alliances in Congress - and state legislatures, school boards, everywhere - if we want legitimate change in our culture. We need to truly seek out and destroy bigotry in all of its forms, because hatred is not a hierarchy; homophobia is not magically more important than any number of other prejudices in our country.
I’m sure you think that wearing a t-shirt, cursing at a faceless audience, and swinging your metaphorical dick around with palpable male white privilege is a lesson in satire and progressive thinking. In the long run, though, it just makes you look childish. Please work towards making real change and not just cheap shots.
