Why the fuck is this funny?!


http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...



Oh, that's right, faggotry! Hey, even better, a nasty Jew has these pictures and that is why he maintains his chairmanship! I mean, after all, we know how sneaky the Jews are.

Homophobia and anti-Semitism, together at last. I wonder who is fucking whom up the ass (or large nose)?

1. Where did you find this...?

:scared:

You should know, it will be your fault if I'm forced to sleep with the lights on tonight.
Not because this features two men (usually a beautiful image), but because of an image of 'w' in bed.
:puke:

3. It is on a thread here.
I am guessing someone made it themselves.

I would agree, "W" in bed with anyone...yuck!

But, why is it when someone has something bad on someone, so many resort to the "homo" angle? Why is it when a traitorous weasel retains his chairmanship it is because of his nature and not of the magnanimous attitude of the elected body? I may have jumped onto anti-Semitism too quickly, but given the BULLSHIT I have seen posted and STILL posted here, what the hell am I supposed to think?!**

PS...I can send you better pics of men in bed. :) Of course, not of me and Mr. BTA, because I am apparently too unattractive to even bartend. (long story)



**I am not making an accusation against the the author of the other thread; it is more of an overall action to the past week.

10. I hear you...
Edited on Thu Nov-20-08 05:23 AM by bliss_eternal
...it's a pathetic (but convenient) way to slur someone (crack a joke, say someone or something isn't masculine, etc.)because society at large still thinks(and uses) "gay" as a punchline.

Um...since when is a bar allowed to base a person's job performance on the way they look?
Please don't tell me they attempted to terminate you over some silliness. :grr: :mad:
I don't have the funds at the moment to fly to nola to cut whoever the hell is being stupid.

6. heehee. I was hoping you'd remember that one.
It was such a clever comeback :eyes: to your destroying another's ignorant "logic." I must say, I got a big laugh because the best comeback the sap could come up with was about you lifting weights. Has to be the saddest personal attack I have EVER seen on this board.

11. Yea. And what was so ridiculous is the person in the avatar
is smaller than me :eyes:

And since everyone is going to want to know, someone accused me in a thread a few weeks ago of being a dumb weight-lifter because of my usual avatar you see in the large photo. That photo is some how meant to illustrate that I'm a tough guy.

It's former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted. And the reason I chose it is for a clever sentimental reason immediately after I read something about him. He joined the band to replace another member who died when their tour bus crashed in Sweden.

Jason said he never felt completely welcome .. as though he was never part of the "family" because the person he replaced was irreplaceable.

And that's how I've felt most of my life being gay .. that I'm accepted for the most part, but that I'm not really part of the family. I feel different.

So I chose to fly that avatar in quiet solidarity, because I know what it's like not to feel completely welcome. And it will return as my avatar once we straighten out Prop 8. No pun intended.

Now excuse me while I go take my steroids. HA

7. Hypocrisy, that's why
Wanting to take away (established now) rights away from people, but who themselves are no different.
hope that answers your Question.
The mega powerful have always been guilty of the most heinous (and not so) things they would immediately make illegal for others, but they themselves do all the time.

The mega powerful are drug addicts of the highest order (not all, but many). They make it illegal for US to have any, to put US behind bars, but for themselves... it's all a big party.

The humor is in pointing out their hypocrisy, that's all.

13. you have a valid point, but I also think it might be portraying the political cliche of
"being in bed together".

I honestly took it that way at first, but I see your point completely. The reason I took it as its less obnoxious state was the inclusion of the pretzel, the photo, and other snarky comments on his presidency.

even then, I did not take it as all that funny.

14. It's always funny when a raccoon is boinking a beagle in the front yard.
It's funny when inferences are made about sexual involvement between Palin and McCain. Or Bill Clinton and the Bimbo of the Day.

But it's not funny to suggest that Bush and McCain are "in bed together"? Sorry, it's funny. Just because it's same sex doesn't eliminate the humor; in fact, it shows a certain maturing of our humor.

You would never allow your sense of humor to mistake that photo for another bad Republicans = must be gay inference, isn't that right Buzz Clik?

The day you put me on your ignore list must have been one of my better performances.

26. I can see how might get that impression ...
... if the only sex jokes at DU involved gay sex. Or if just the mention of being gay here at DU was considered to be a joke or an insult.

I dislike -- despise! -- George Bush, but he isn't gay. Neither is McCain, and I dislike him as well. Portraying them in a motel romance merely suggests that, among their other faults, they are cheap and disloyal.

Sorry to disappoint you, but none of my initial reactions to this picture had anything to do with "same sex".

40. You know, sometimes some people just need a reality check.
Not everyone who isn't gay who makes a joke involving homosexuality is a homophobe.

41. Are you gay? No? Then guess what?
You don't get to decide what is homophobic and what isn't.

As another example to illustrate my point, I'm not a woman. Therefore, I don't get to decide what is misogynistic and what isn't. If a woman tells me that my behavior is sexist and inappropriate, I would immediately cease the offensive behavior and make amends. I wouldn't continue to engage in the same behavior after being told by her that it was inappropriate, because that would make me a jerk. And I certainly wouldn't openly brag about doing so.

But I suppose that is the difference between you and I.

Edited on Thu Nov-20-08 10:56 AM by Buzz Clik
Sorry, but you cannot tell me that I'm homophobic just because some pouty, hypersensitive drama freak has decided to shit his or her pants over a joke.

Granted, I can't tell this pouty, hypersensitive drama freak that his or her feelings haven't been hurt, but I sure as hell can tell them to get their head out of their ass.

44. OK, when did I say that you, personally, are homophobic?
I haven't done that, or implied that, so stop saying that I have.

And please try to understand that the "pouty, hypersensitive drama freak" knows a little more about homophobia than you do. Does that mean that you are homophobic? Of course not. But his judgment on what "humor" is homophobic and what isn't trumps yours. To blatantly flaunt that "humor" in the face of someone who already stated that it is inappropriate is disrespectful and wrong.

And the photo in the thread linked in the OP was removed not one, but twice. Perhaps, then, you are wrong about its appropriateness in this forum.
