"God knows there’s already enough homophobia in the world. You don’t want to be adding to it."
This morning when Mrs Dirt notified me that the attacks on Lesbianism/Lesbians by Homophobe
Mary Beard, who flatly stated Homosexuality is NOT biological, (meaning it can only be a whim/choice/something fun to do when you're bored on a Friday night and you havent a date) had been taken up by Gay Star News's own David Hudson in FAVOUR of Mary Beard's HOMOPHOBIC position, the first thing I said was "if a gay or lesbian wrote the article they've got some serious fucking internalized homophobia"! The quote/link that begins this post is from the same David Hudson of Gay Star News, regarding an article he wrote only last year on....wait for it.....wait for it....wait for it....HIS OWN INTERNALIZED HOMOPHOBIA! BINGO!
David began his article on Internalized Homophobia with the question "At what age does one’s internalized homophobia fade away?" and answers himself by saying:
THIS morning David Hudson of the Gay Star News has NO problem being a totally fucking HOMOPHOBE! Or maybe being a HOMOPHOBIC dick to Lesbians doesnt count? Hmmm....David continues:
Well David, clearly your HOMOPHOBIA is still firmly intact and clearly you still place MORE IMPORTANCE on the opinions of a HOMOPHOBIC History instructor than actual living and breathing Lesbians! That David, makes you a HOMOPHOBE! That not a single Lesbian was contacted by you for our say, that we were quoted out of context, that Miss Mary was quoted to suit hers/your HOMOPHOBIC bent, makes you a shit writer!"if someone invented a pill to wipe away internalized homophobia, I’d be the first in line for a prescription.
Why is that internalized anxiety still there? Maybe because homophobia is still there. And because we can still perhaps never predict how someone might react to finding out the fact that one is gay. Because we place undue importance on their opinion of us, we want to control how they find out’ disclosing when we think it’s safe."
- David Hudson of the Gay Star News: Did you even bother to read my post or did you simply lazily link it for the sole purpose of giving me credit?
- David Hudson of the Gay Star News: Did you go back through Miss Mary's Twitter timeline and see the barrage of homophobic attacks/slander that SHE said/orchestrated?
- David Hudson of the Gay Star News: Did you bother to contact any of the Lesbians involved to get their Lesbian side of the Homophobia?
- David Hudson of the Gay Star News: Did you even bother to notice it was more than one Lesbian involved?
- David Hudson of the Gay Star News: Did you bother to vet the "
lesbians" whose Tweets you cited? If you did David, then it isnt just your Internalized Homophobia thats faulty, your Gaydar is too!
- David Hudson of the Gay Star News: Do you agree with Mary Beard and her onslaught of Homophobic Het/queer followers that Homosexuality is merely a choice and has no bearing on anything outside of who you want to fuck at any given time?
- David Hudson of the Gay Star News: Do you agree with Mary Beard that even talking about Homosexuality is "crass"? Which btw David Hudson of the Gay Star News, is what this whole homophobic shit storm directed by Mary Beard was designed to cover up.
- David Hudson of the Gay Star News: I Tweeted twice today to you David Hudson of the Gay Star News, asking who it was exactly that said Mary Beard was "old" and have yet to receive a single answer from you or Miss Mary. As not a single Lesbian involved (as was noted in my original post) brought up age/agism nor would we given we're all of similar ages and age wasnt the issue, Mary Beard's Less-than-Intelligent-Homosexual-Design was! So Then David Hudson of the Gay Star News is it then honest to say it is ONLY Mary Beard herself who told you that "she objects to people assuming she is ‘an old het lady’"? Based on YOUR quotes by HER, without a SINGLE QUOTE from myself or ANY other Lesbian referring to her as "old"!
So legally is Mary Beard the one to be held libelous for slanting YOUR articles readership to believe I (a 50 year Lesbian) called a slightly older Women, OLD?
Are you David Hudson of the Gay Star News to be held libelous for slanting YOUR articles readership to believe I (a 50 year Lesbian) called a slightly older Women, OLD?
Whether you accidentally stepped into this shit storm David Hudson of the Gay Star News, was willfully led or paid as the case may be, either way David Hudson of the Gay Star News, you need to fucking remember what you wrote last year: "God knows there’s already enough homophobia in the world. You don’t want to be adding to it."Or David Hudson of the Gay Star News, should the Gay Star News be held libelous for slanting YOUR articles readership to believe I (a 50 year Lesbian) called a slightly older Women, OLD?
And as of today David Hudson of the Gay Star News, you just added to the over flowing Homophobia Gays and Lesbians are still fucking daily drowning in. Feel better about yourself?
PS BOYCOTT GAY STAR NEWS!
Edit to add:
This is my Mrs Dirt's personal message to Gay Star News:
I wanted to tell you that David Hudson's story about Mary Beard is biased, unfair, unbalanced, and completely wrong. He never even researched the history of the Twitter wars involved in this situation; he never contacted ANY of the lesbians who disagreed with Mary Beard; he never presented our side of the issue; he quoted tweets that were defamatory to us; and he implied that we (lesbians) said Mary Beard was old which is completely untrue. If he was going to do a story, the only fair and balanced way would be to present BOTH sides of that story which he did not. Also, how reprehensible to take the side AGAINST lesbians. Shame on him for writing it and shame on you for publishing it. Stories like that reveal the utter lack of ethics in reporting now, and also, sadly, the lack of solidarity between gay men and lesbians. Thank you for listening. This whole debacle has been incredibly stressful, and the LAST thing lesbians needed was to be attacked AND misrepresented by a member of our own "community".We have yet to hear back from them. I encourage Lesbians (and Gay men) to write to Gay Star News about their Homophobic content. If Gay Star News, like Mary Beard believe Homosexuality doesnt exist, then they shouldnt be calling themselves "gay" star news. Write to them here: email@example.com
