...you're such a douchebag (even your TV parents agree!). But thanks for being the catalyst that helped me discover a cool blogger.
Mommy Man: Adventures of a Gay Superdad offers up an "I won’t be your gay friend if..." list followed by a proposal for his real friends:
If you see Kirk Cameron, Sarah Palin or any other blatant homophobe, don’t be nice to them. It confuses them.
Don’t shake their hand. Don’t style their hair or do their interior design or perform “Rent” for them. And for the love of God, don’t play your 1970s classic rock hits at their wedding, Elton.
Just cut them off and say, “Sorry, I only do that for friends.”
It’s not polite and it’s not subtle, but I’m afraid it’s the best course of action from here on out. Sometimes the only way to get through to these people is to be a complete douchebag.
You know, like them.
UPDATE: Free Speech and Kirk Cameron, by John Scalzi. Awesome.
