via [livejournal.com profile] rm: I found this delightful piece of nausea inducing vitriol from the mouth of author, John C. Wright. It's one of the most offensive things I've ever read. More so even than Orson Scott Card, which is saying something.

It's also really charming to see names I recognize from various fandoms (Star Wars being a particular offender) agreeing with this crap. I knew these folk wrote het, but I didn't realize it was from hate as opposed to "I just happen to ship this."

[livejournal.com profile] faris_nallaneen: we were eying some of his books the other day in B&N. I think we can safely say avoid, yes?

If you too wish to express dismay with the power of your pocketbook, here's a list of all his works.

OMG, that Wright thing: I'm just sitting here going D: -- it makes me feel a bit icky just knowing that I share the planet with someone like him, and the people agreeing with him in comments.

I kept reading expecting it to be some really complicated form of sarcasm. Like... okay, and the punchline is where? For some reason I read the link at the top as being to the offending article, and thought what you'd linked me to was someone (ham-fistedly) making fun of the person spewing the homophobic bullshit. And I was like... wow. Okay, so that's the characture of what these people say, I wonder what the actual link says. Then I realized it *was* the rant.

And felt like barfing in my mouth a little.

You know, I was expecting the same thing? Its tonal quality really makes it sound like caricature. And then it's....not.

If I *were* going to bother to engage, I point out that there isn't a single *sin* a homosexual can perpetrate upon or with a member of their gender that a heterosexual *can't* perpetrate upon a member of the opposite sex.

Except for docking. And I don't think they cover docking in the bible. ... Though, considering the whole circumcision thing, I'd wager they're against it.

Right? I mean the part where he's all like: Then someone tried to convince me that two lesbians licking each other in the crotch was the same in all ways, just as sacred, just as romantic, just as normal, just as beautiful as Romeo and Juliet, Tristan and Iseult, Micky and Minnie, Adam and Eve, Jove and Juno, Father Sky and Mother Earth, me and my wife. (http://johncwright.livejournal.com/269139.html?thread=8206931#t8206931)

and I'm like, excuse me? Since when is crotch licking a "homosexual perversion"? I feel sorry for the wife. Except I don't.

"And on the far wall of the palace complex, you'll see a traditional rendition of the hieros gamos, complete with puffy white gloves and semi-anthropomorphic dog attendants. The Goddess is identifiable by her polka-dot bow, while her youthful consort, his virile blood soon to fertilize the lap of the Mother Goddess, is dressed in the ceremonial red shorts with giant white buttons."

SRSLY. WAT.

Between him holding up Jove and Juno as paragons of romantic love and saying that Oedipus and Jocasta are more normal and natural than queers because hey, at least they can have children, I'm even more skeeved out than I was by his original post. Please tell me he and his wife are childless.

There were some racists and homophobes at SJC, no question. Mostly Catholics, because the Evangelicals generally went to different schools. But people called them on that shit, both in and out of class. It still makes me feel gross and dirty to know that she went there (and that, as of press time, Gillen is on her friends list. *eyeroll*). Just... Ugh. Argh. Why couldn't they have gone to Thomas Aquinas instead, and taken tests and played football and stayed off the steps of the opposite sex's dorm?!

It also occurs to me that I've heard this "Diversity = Perversity" thing like a billion times lately, and never before a month ago. Did all the bigots in the world just figure out that the two words rhyme? Do they all feel terribly clever about this? Is this a talking point? Are all right-wing talking points now to be delivered in rhyme? Does this explain Bobby Jindal's elocution style? I MUST KNOW.
