Fulton … The end of the line.

I have not been able to blog about the Fulton Idiocy largely because I can’t bring myself down to the cool, calm, collected level I usually operate at being that I’m a professional blogger and all. I will blog about it, but later. I’ll blog about it mainly because I want this to come true:

You can find a job, kid from Fulton, but it will be a job that requires someone just like you. Prepare to spend the next fifty-some years of your life taking the same kind of orders you’ve been taking from your parents and your teachers and your friends. You’ve just waved goodbye to your chance to grow up and determine how you want to live your own life.


That’s from Stephanie Zvan, who correctly identifies this event as a game ender …. for life … for those kids from Fulton. Fulton is the place where it is normal to short-bus the gays. OMG. (wait, wait, I’m starting to blog and I promised myself I would not do that yet… must. stop…)

OK, so go read “To the Kids of Fulton, Mississippi” and for now, that’s pretty much my opinion. Fulton Mississippi. Google it. For the rest of time, Fulton Mississippi will be where they short bus the gay. OMG.

I also recommend that you visit my friend Jaf’s blog. She’s a new blogger, and she’s written about her outrage over Fulton: “Words can not express….”

    I live about an hour and a half away from Fulton.

    I still don’t get it. Why do gay people think they have to announce their decision to the world? Frankly I don’t care what they do in the privacy of thier own dwelling situation.

    I find a girl wanting to wear a tux and act like a man a little disturbing. That girl should definitely seek pshychiatric help.

    As far as the school goes, they did what they had to do becuase if they had let this thing fly full swing into a sodom sex party, the outrage from the parents of the normal kids would have been far worse than the fake outrage of the Ass Crusty Lickers Union (ACLU.

    Besides they school board or council members probably thought the same way the parents did – this is not right.

    I suppose next year a boy will want to wear dress and panties to a prom and take his boyfriend? This stuff is getting way out of hand.

    I’ll put it this way:

    If you want to have another man’s dick up your ass, then keep that stuff private. There is no need to announce the size of your asshole to the world. No one gives a damn. Is that plain enough to understand?

    In other words, you can be homo all you want, but I don;t want to know. Keep that stuff to yourself. Nobody wants to see it in public. I have never understood why people who choose to be gay insist that the world know it. It’s the equivilant of saying “Hey look at me. I just let a gorilla screw me up the ass. Hey everybody watch me and the gorilla get it on. If you don’t wanna watch, you’re a gorillaphobic bigot”.

    The shame of this fallen wicked twisted sin laced world.

    Maybe liberals are heterophobic and Godophobic bigots.

    Wow, “Confused Conservative” is a Fulton local. Hee-haw. What a surprise.

    As for Stephanie’s post, here’s a little immediate gratification for those unwilling to wait for an unlikely (imho) turnabout: Photos from the “real” prom.

    Confused Conservative, thank you so much for proving everyone within 100 miles of Fulton Mississippi should be given psychiatric help as soon as possible.

    to Confused Conservative (oddly appropriate name choice): I’m going to go right past all the many logical errors in your “comment”, (yes, I put quotes around that, but you’ll fail to understand why), and I’ll go straight to a reply more suited to your style.

    We all live less than an hour and a half from each other on the internet.

    I don’t get it. Why do stupid people think they have to announce their decision to the world? (You did decide to become stupid, right? You weren’t born that way, were you?)

    Do you really need to show the whole world how big of an asshole you are? No one gives a damn.

    In other words, you can be stupid all you want, but I don’t really need to know. (Subtle distinction that will be lost on ConCon, I don’t want to stop you from announcing your stupidity, I just don’t understand why you’d want everyone to know).

    Wow, for someone who “doesn’t want to know”, Confused Conservative sure likes to provide a lot of details about what (he thinks) gay people are up to in private.

    And he has some interesting ideas about what gays and lesbians want to wear to the prom as well.

    Dear Mr. Poe (aka “[Sexually] Confused Conservative”):

    Your comment is long and wordy. Please consider the following edit suggestion:

    I don’t mind gay people, as long as they stay in the closet.

    I think you’ll agree that the new version is much more concise, and frankly, would not make you look quite as unhinged.

    Respectfully yours,

    MPL

    PS: You’re aware the Bible also prohibits sex with farm animals, right?

    (Heh, this stereotype stuff is kind of fun. ;/)

    “I find a girl wanting to wear a tux and act like a man a little disturbing. That girl should definitely seek pshychiatric help.”

    I am sitting at a computer, wearing a turtleneck, flannel shirt, and corduroy pants. I am an electrical engineer. My hobbies include Lego robotics and model trains. Sound manly? Oops, I am female. Should I seek psychiatric help?

    A turtleneck? A real turtleneck of one of those fake jobbies? We need to know that before deciding on the proper therapy.

    Dear Confused Conservative (that’s a bit redundant, actually),

    I understand your position completely.

    I don’t mind heterosexuals as long as they act queer in public.

    ” A real turtleneck of one of those fake jobbies?”

    A real one, cotton knit with a foldover collar. (It was warm here last week (in Ottawa, Canada), but it’s now proper April cool and wet weather, so the clever Tshirts have to go back into waiting as I have reverted to the turtlenecks.)

    No. I am resisting the urge to inquire about your relationship status, though. ;/

    …and subsequently realizing how many ways that comment could be interpreted. I meant to say that description sounds appealing. x.x

    “No. I am resisting the urge to inquire about your relationship status, though. ;/”

    I’m flattered, but I am happily married (to another geek), coming up to our 30th anniversary in a few weeks :)

    I wish Confused’s comment was a parody, but I fear that it’s not. This episode is a good example of the reason so many gays move to cities. There are many out gay students (and faculty) at my Houston high school. It is becoming a non-issue. Note who is our mayor. So, Constance, come on out to where many consider you a hero!

    Constance didn’t “announce her plans to the world” until they canceled her prom. This is not her fault. And shame on the adults from that town for being bullies.

    shame on the adults from that town for being bullies.

    Unfortunately, they do not see it as bullying, they consider themselves to be a persecuted minority taking their stand for righteousness in an immoral society, and training up their sons (and incidentally their daughters) to be just like they are.

    Even here in Mississippi, I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the amount of outrage about the fake prom bs albeit more over the out and out meanness of it than disagreement with the homophobia.
    Noel, i think you have a point – many areas here are rural and people just don’t have exposure to much cultural diversity. It’s getting better but there is still a long way to go.
