What We Missed

A man with a boot on his head glitterbombs Randall Terry. You’re welcome.

Hugo Schwyzer on “gaslighting,” the myth of male-bashing and why he resigned from The Good Man Project last night. Good on him.

Meet the hipster duo who are trying to make social conservatism cool — including “wifely submission.” Fucking scary.

    …Seriously? You’re going to applaud Schwyzer? After all the stuff that’s been all over the place about how he tried to kill his ex-girlfriend?

    Right, I’m done.

    Can we please stop applauding glitterbombing? The target of sparkly rage might be mildly inconvenienced, but as a theatre techie, I know that the real people hurt by glitterbombing are the janitorial staff. I’d like to propose spontaneous show tunes as an equally fabulous, but less “make the techie weep in the night.”

    I love the strange boot hat and harmless glitter. I do not love the language of “turning” Terry gay. It makes me uncomfortable. I can’t formulate an argument to dissuade people from saying things like, “Jesus told me to make Randall Terry gay”, but I do. not. like. it. Maybe someone else can help me elucidate why it might be wrong.

    Randall Terry has made many public statements about how homosexuality is a “behavior,” and that his own gay son was a victim of Human Rights Campaign-approved brainwashing. My interpretation is that the boot guy was making the point that no one turns, or is turned, gay.

      Thanks for bringing that up. I feel slightly better with the awareness that I’m probably just missing some intended irony.
