I do share his feeling on some of the items that he posted, but I must take exception to a few.
I'm angry that Rosie O'Donnell and her partner, Kelli Carpenter O'Donnell, didn't donate any money to fight amendments in California, Arizona, or even Florida - the state they supposedly loved so much. They take gay money with their cruise ships, but I guess it's too much to expect them to give back to the community that's always backed them.
Rosie has done enough for our community, it is right to keep asking her to fight in every cause and to give in every cause, she does have a life, and she is entitle to do what she pleases, no matter how we feel about it. Rosie has been on the front lines enough, just like anyone, after a while she deserve a break and to take some time for yourself. I have no problem with Rosie on this issue.
I'm angry that the first substantive post fellow contributor Pam Spaulding put up on her own blog, Pam's House Blend, was a "Don't blame the blacks" post to deflect the fact that African-Americans in California overwhelmingly supported Prop 8. I'm angry that some in our community will still blame African-Americans.
Pam has a point, you really can't blame them. Yes some will still blame African-American simply because they have always been made the scape goats all though history. To tell the truth no one is really to blame at all. There was just more bigots then family members and supports.
How I do share his view on this one 100%.
I'm angry that our community put so much energy and cash into California's marriage amendment while giving the other states short shrift. Arizona was the darling of state and national groups as the first to defeat an amendment, but this time they struggled to get noticed.
I'm mad that we put so much energy and cash in to this amendment, while we can hardly get anyone in our community to become more active on HIV/AIDS issues, like we had back in the mid 80's. Those who fought for HIV/AIDS in the 80's seem to be the only one today doing their parts. Why the younger generation hardy does anything anymore. Why there are member of our community out there trying to get HIV for some very sick reason.
And this one he hit the nail right the head.
I'm angry with Hollywood celebrities, producers, directors and other insiders who are as gay as the day is long, but didn't give to protect the community. I'm angry with liberal straight celebrities who kept quiet on this one while screaming their damned heads off about fur, the environment or whatever disease they've decided to champion only to drop after the cameras have gone.
Gay Hollywood, is the worst of all. So many Actors/actress who can't come out to help us, but want to hide in the damn closet, but don't mind getting down and dirty on the casting couch if it will help their careers. These A-list actors/actress who can do so much chose to only lend their name to a cause that will boost their careers and their incomes. I won't name names but they know who they are.
Now that the elections are over, its time to get back to the basics, we need to re-educate our community on the danger of BareBack sex. We need to get the word out that HIV/AIDS is on the raise again in our community, because we have gotta soft on this issue. Just imagine what we could do with 73 million dollars for HIV Education.
