You Bet-cho

The other day, I received a cold call on my cell phone from Jim, a phone bank operator working with the campaign supporting Proposition 8, the fucktarded, bigoted backwards ban on gay marriage. He left a message asking me to support the fundamentals of “traditional marriage.”

After listening to his voicemail, I used the callback feature to hit him back on his cell phone.

“HI JIM,” I said. “This is Diana. You called me earlier regarding Prop 8?”

“Yes, I did! I want–”

I continued: “I don’t know how you got my fucking phone number, but I don’t ever want you to call me again. Whatever list my name is on, you need to fucking take it off right now. Your cause disgusts me. What you’re doing is not good. Prop 8 is a disgusting, insecure, unfair resolution to the problems held deep by an ignorant sub-population crippled by fear. It’s a fucking disgrace. You should do better with yourself. You’re wasting your time on bigotry and hatred, maybe you should spend some on getting educated. Or just fucking pick your ass all day. I don’t fucking care, you fucking asshole.”* [Click]

I have kept his phone number for future drunk dials. But I do wish I hadn’t lashed out with expletives, and perhaps reached across the gap to try and talk some reason into the stupid prick.

Our lady Margaret Cho–who clearly does better–has taken a much nicer, more-proactive approach to condemning Prop 8:

I suggest taking her advice and talk gently with your friends, family, and neighbors. And try not to use the word “fucking,” unless of course you’re saying something helpful like, “Fucking is fun for everybody, but don’t you think that sex is better for married couples? I think all gay and straight couples have the right to more fucking fun and good sex. Yeah! Can I get a woot woot? And a high-five! Now let’s go vote ‘No!’”

* This transcript is not 100% accurate. I’ve corrected grammar, aggrandized some words, and omitted some expletives to make myself sound smarter and more articulate. But this is half my gosh-darned blog, so I can do whatever the heck I want.
