I Didn't Say It........

Matt Damon, to teachers:
"So, the next time you’re feeling down, or exhausted, or unappreciated, or at the end of your rope; the next time you turn on the TV and see yourself being called “overpaid”; the next time you encounter some simple-minded, punitive policy that’s been driven into your life by some corporate reformer who has literally never taught anyone anything, please, please, please know that there are millions of us behind you. You have an army of regular people standing right behind you and our appreciation for what you do is so deeply felt. We love you, we thank you and we will always have your back."

Nicely put.
As the son of a teacher, and the product of teachers, many of them extraordinary, we need to do all we can for them.
For without teachers we might are be illiterate, uninformed, incoherent, Michele Bachmannites.
Just sayin'.

Dr. Keith Ablow, writing for Fox News, as an asshat:
"I advise parents to not allow their children to watch the episodes in which Chaz appears....Chaz Bono should not be applauded for asserting she is a man (and goes about trying to look like one) any more than a woman who believes she will be happier without arms, has them removed and then continues to assert that she was right all along—her self-concept was that of a double amputee. Now, all is well. Chaz Bono should not be applauded any more than someone who, tragically, believes that his species, rather than gender, is what is amiss and asks a plastic surgeon to build him a tail of flesh harvested from his abdomen. If only a plastic surgeon would acquiesce, all would be well."

Hey, um, "Doctor"?
Chaz is not asserting anything other than dancing.
HE, yes, motherfucker, HE, has the same rights to be on some cheesy reality show as anyone else. And if you don't like it, fine, then you don't watch. But don't spread fear and hate and bigotry and intolerance.

Judith WeismanLiberty University law professor, on all gays--and women--being pedophiles:
"We know that pedophilia, which was the original Greek they say it’s ‘love of’ but of course it isn’t, it’s ‘lust for’ boys. And there’s a strong, clear, cross-cultural, historical reality, people don’t want to do deal with, but the propaganda has been loud and strong to deny the fact, the aim of homosexual males and now increasingly females is not to have sex with other old guys and get married but to obtain sex with as many boys as possible. That’s the reality. I wish it weren’t, but it is."

Hey "Professor"?
Any idiot with an education and an internet connection can discover that the majority--and it's well over 90%--of pedophiles are heterosexual men.
Heterosexual men.
Pedophilia, child molestation, child rape, are not sex acts, but acts of power over someone else. The pedophile feels so inadequate that they must molest young boys and girls in order to feel a sense of power and control.
It isn't about sex any more than you are about education.

Kathy Griffin, on how Marcus Bachmann is her act and her audience:
"Okay, he's very anti-gay and LGBT rights, and it's odd, because if you look at him on YouTube, it's almost as if he himself... or, it's as if...I would say that Marcus Bachmann reminds me of a lot of the type of men who come see my live shows...And he wants people to 'pray the gay away' and so I was going to call the special 'Pray the Gay Back'" but Bravo changed it to Pants Off."

Marcus Bachmann is probably getting a little tingly in his nether region at the words "Pants Off" though.
You go get 'em Kathy.
He'll be enraged, maybe, but he'll be watching....and watching again when Michele goes to her own room for the night.

Joe Solmonese, of the HRC, on the mistrial in the Lawrence King murder case:
“It is disappointing that the criminal justice system has failed to bring closure to the family, friends and community that loved Lawrence. In the wake of the mistrial, and in honor of Lawrence, we will continue our efforts to prevent these types of tragedies by working with school districts across our nation to stamp out the ignorance and prejudice that led to Lawrence’s death. It’s up to the adults around children to call out that early behavior and prejudice, and to explain that the differences among us are part of what makes us strong: that being different is not something to attack, but to appreciate. If Lawrence or Brandon had lived in that world, their lives might not have collided in tragedy and death.”

It's a sad world where one young boy can take a loaded gun into school, walk up behind another young boy, shoot him in the back of the head, and have a mistrial declared.
It's also a sad world when just expressing your love, your attraction, your like, to another human being can result in your being murdered.

Lacey Schwimmer, Chaz Bono's DWTS partner, on the "controversy: 
"No human is perfect, so why are they pointing out what they perceive to be an imperfection in someone else? It's not cool. We’re all taught to not bully, or harass, and treat everyone as equals yet all these people are doing exactly the opposite...At the end of the day, everyone is going to have a hater. I choose not to listen to it, because it’s ridiculous. To us, it’s more important to focus on the positive people. I was absolutely thrilled [to be paired with Chaz]. I’ve always been a huge supporter of the LGBT community and I couldn’t be more excited to have Chaz. Not only is he Sonny & Cher’s child but he’s also a generally cool person...This is my sixth season -- the producers know that I’m very open-minded and really accepting of everyone. Ever since Lance [Bass] was on the show, it opened the door for the LGBT community to be accepted in Middle America and it’s about time. It’s 2011, let’s evolve a little bit here."

Oh, I think we need to evolve all the way.
But, it's a step.

Rick Perry, speaking to evangelicals and teabaggers, about any secrets--i.e. rumors that he's a flamer--in his life: 
"I can assure you that there is nothing in my life that will embarrass you if you decide to support me for president."

Other than the fact that you are a lying, pandering, big business, non-job creating, pray the drought away, bigoted asshat who looks and acts and walks and talks like W.
And, since we've been down that road before, I certainly hope we are smart enough not to go back.

Bryan Fischer, of the AFA,  on recriminalizing homosexuality, and passing laws outlaw unprotected sex:
"What I’m suggesting is that we enact ordinances in city after city and laws in state after state that mandate that same exact penalty - whatever penalty gay activists think is appropriate - for unprotected homosexual sex. Hey, if it’s good enough for porn stars, it should be good enough for the average gay man on the street. And if someone wants to extend that same penalty to unmarried straights who have sex, who am I to complain?"

This is so over the top as to be incomprehensible.
Outlaw being gay?
Outlaw unprotected sex for everyone who isn't a married heterosexual?
Seriously, is the Delusional Bus ever gonna pick this fucktard up and take him away?

Jane Lynch speaks out about hosting Emmys:
 "I'm a person, not just a gay person. So I don't focus on gay things like [my sexuality]. I just focus on good jokes and being funny. I've thought of every aspect of it, I'm very much collaborating with everybody." 

She isn't the "gay" host. She's the host.
Just like NPH.
When we limit ourselves to one defining identity, i.e. gay, we limit ourselves completely.
We are not gay people.
We are people who are gay.
Subtle, yes, but still a difference.

Gary DeMar, "evangelist", on a Gay Death Penalty being enacted Christians achieve dominion over the United States:
"Obviously, certain sins often may escape detection. Homosexuals who practice behind closed doors are out-of-bounds for the courts, of course, unless others witness their criminal behavior. Such behavior may not be dealt with by courts in history, but will be dealt with by God, either in history (e.g., AIDS) or eternity. The law that requires the death penalty for homosexual acts effectually drives the perversion of homosexuality underground, back to the closet, to the dark realm of shameful activity."

So, this "man of god' wants to Kill The Gays.
And keeps spreading the myth that AIDS is god's punishment for being gay, even though straight men and women, and even children have died as a result of AIDS.
It's punishment.
Look, fucktard, I ain't goin' back in the closet.
None of us, deal.

Oscar De La Hoya, former boxer, on those 2007 photos that showed him in full-body fishnet drag, but blaming it on cocaine and alcohol addiction which he says he has since conquered:
"Let me to tell you, yes, yes, it was me. I am tired now of lying, of lying to the public and of lying to myself."

So, he puts on a fishnet body-suit and a wig and some make-up and poses for pictures and then denies that it's him for four years.
Until he decides to admit it's him, but that it was cocaine and booze that made him do it?
Maybe if he'd admitted it right away he could have gotten sober sooner.

David Arquette, on his fellow DWTS "star" Rob Kardashian's backside:
"The thing about Rob is, and a lot of people don't know this, but he's got a great ass just like his sister...I'm serious! Once you see it, his ass is fantastic...And I really think it's going to be a secret weapon."

David sounds like he's up for trading dance partners so he can grab a coupla handfuls of Kardashian boy booty.
And yet, I don't hear any outrage about that.

Troy Aikman, former Dallas Cowboy, holding a grudge for Skip Bayless speculating that Aikman was gay...FIFTEEN YEARS AGO: 
"When a guy like that comes out and, whether it's intimated or stated, and there's no substance to that claim, and he's doing it purely to gain interest in a book, that's a problem...I will tell you this. I've not seen -- I've not physically seen Skip Bayless since that time. That was in '95. And I still kind of wonder what I might do to him when I do see him." 

Methinks the lady doth protest too much.
It's been FIFTEEN years, Troy.
Build a bridge and get your ALLEGEDLY straight ass over it.

With teachers MattD. needs to add the occasions when their administration and district also expect them to solve all the student's problems regardless of the severity and depth.

I love all your STFU's. Those folks Are ridiculous. Chaz Bono will have me tuning in

Skip Bayless is an asshat but Troy Aikman never filed a libel suit in the sixteen years since that book came out. So who's volunteering to give him a toaster and a copy of the Gay Agenda?

Ordinarily I would think Prof. Weisman's comments are a violation of a law school's code of conduct. However, given this is Liberty University Law School, I doubt there even is one.

What exactally does Gary DeMar think that homosexuals are practicing? Oh! I know Dancing! That's how Chaz got so good at it! All that dancing at home. I'll be sure to watch and pick up some handy tips.

Jane Lynch. She is the best ever!

As for the rest of your asshats? I'm thinking they were dropped as babies, or huffed gas as teens. There is no other viable reason to explain the crap that falls from their mouths.
