Fair, Balanced, and Gay

Shep Smith is the worst case scenario for the traditionalist crowd. He’s been one of the most recognizable faces on Fox News since it went on the air in 1996.  And he’s gay.  So what’s the big deal?

There is no big deal – and that’s the biggest fear among anti-gay people.  Smith just shrugs his shoulders, expounds his way-right, conservative views, and professionally does his job.  He doesn’t make a big thing out of his lifestyle.  He’s – can I say it? – “normal” – and easily fits into straight society – just like the vast majority of gay people.

Anti-gay dweebs fight hard to make homosexuality “an abomination” and not acceptable to mainstream America.  They belch their paranoid fears about teachers, priests, and scoutmasters being gay and influencing straight kids.  Traditionalists love pointing out nude flamers with balloons and day-glo painted “parts” marching in San Francisco’s Gay Day parade. They don’t want to tell you that the next day many of these same queens go to work as lawyers, bankers, and analysts in regular suits. Putting things in proper perspective is not part of the anti-gay agenda.

The simple facts are the sky is blue, water is wet, and some people are gay.  And problems about gay rights could be easily solved if all these straight parents would just stop having gay kids!
