If everyone else is afraid to say it, I will, GROW UP! I direct those words at not whom you may think. After hearing the news that Phil Robertson had been indefinitely suspended due to his remarks in GQ, I must admit I became agitated.
"It seems like, to me, a vagina -- as a man -- would be more desirable than a man's anus. That's just me. I'm just thinking: There's more there! She's got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I'm saying? But hey, sin: It's not logical, my man. It's just not logical," Phil Robertson is quoted as saying in the latest edition of GQ.
Now I don't know were he was going with the whole bestiality statement, however I would like to point out one simple fact here, this is still America. The home of free thought and especially free speech. His remarks were not harmful to anyone. He certainly was not inciting hate and oh yeah, let's not forget, he's a REDNECK! By his own admission he is "white trash", he's not claiming to be anything other than that. Except maybe the head of the Robertson clan. For the record I happen to agree with his remarks in regards to the vagina. I am a straight man and proud of it. Is that even ok anymore? Fact of the matter is I find certain gay parades offensive, I do not see those coming to end anytime soon. No one rushes to the defense of the uncomfortable straight man being harassed by the pushy gay guy. Don't miss read this. I have nothing against the gay and lesbian community. I do have a problem with people of this country's convenient sensitivity. Let's all be hyper sensitive to the the homosexual community because it is wrong to hate. Sound good? However if some man or woman doesn't care for their way of life and has something to say about it, then that should be just as acceptable. Society should just as tolerant with free speech as it is with sexuality.
