Ur So Gay, U Probably Think This Post Is About U

I was naturally disturbed when our friends at Homo Shame discovered the Tumblr blog of this young DISGRASIAN-in-training:.


No, I’m not about to use this forum to disgrace some nobody young’un (that’s not how we roll), but I did wonder what this little girl’s obsession with gay tests and not being gay and calling people gay came from who the hell is influencing the kids today, yknowwhatimsayin?

A quick scroll down the page answered that question in this instance:


AGH. Of COURSE! KATY PERRY! That creepy Zooey Deschanel knockoff with the inane outfits and creepy saucer-eyed stare (Is that all it takes to be a pop star these days, by the way? Somebody ask Lady GaGa) and former Christian pop career and new top 40 songs I’ve never heard (thank bejeezus) and semi-famous rocker ex. Of COURSE this ignoramus is responsible for the influence of our country’s dumb, ADD-afflicted, impressionable youth.

What’s the deal with this song, anyway?


Can somebody please explain to Perry and, for that matter, Capitol Records, that tossing around the word “gay” as an insult is REALLY FUCKING IRRESPONSIBLE? Do we need Hillary Duff to tell them all what’s what (I’m not sure I ever thought I’d see the day)?

Perhaps they might realize that there are real results to having a provocative hit song that playfully attaches a negative connotation to a word that describes sexuality–beyond a couple of people that “live to be offended” writing on Perry’s social networking profile.

And those results are what you see above.

(Also, it’s “you’re,” not “Ur.” Stupid kids!)

In the current issue of Vogue, Zhang Ziyi says that she doesn’t understand why people have been protesting the Olympics.

“I don’t see why people are so negative. The games are about friendship,” she says. “I’m Chinese and I’m proud of my country.”

Listen, lady. I’m Chinese and I’m muthafuckin proud of my mother ship, too. A lot of people like me are. But just because I’m juiced for the Olympics and ready to lock myself in my house for the next month doesn’t mean I don’t understand why people are “negative.” Yeah, it hurts me when people conflate the Chinese government with the people, and I’d like to think that if your average American lived one day in your average Chinese’s shoes, fighting their way onto a public bus, shitting in a dirty public squat toilet, watching every word they say, they would get why the Olympics matter so much to China. But that doesn’t change the fact that the Chinese government does a lot of shady shit. The Olympic Games are putting China on center stage and, for better AND for worse, China’s detractors. Don’t act like you don’t know the score, Zhang Ziyi. That’s plain stupid. And stupid, girl, ain’t very Chinese.
