Yesterday Was Pride Day

Yesterday, the gay pride parade took place in New York City. One of the grand marshals was Constance McMillen, the Mississippi teen who caused a kerfuffle among the bigots when she wanted to attend her prom with another girl. Once again, the bigots' small-mindedness has backfired on them, as Ms. McMillen has received national attention, scholarship money, and a free ticket out of Palookaville. Good for her.

I am going to take a moment to say that I am not gay, I never have been gay. That being said, my iPod is definitely bisexual:






The song, by Canadian duo Kon Kan (jokingly named after the Canadian Content laws in our Socialist Northern Neighbor to the North), is a glorious mess, incorporating the melodic "hook" of Italo-Disco Diva Ivana Spagna's Call Me, the chorus of Lynn Anderson's I Beg Your Pardon, I Never Promised You a Rose Garden, a vocal sample of Get Up And Boogie (That's Right) by Deutschdisko group Silver Convention, and (hilariously) a snatch of Elmer Bernstein's The Magnificent Seven Overture.

Now, watching that video is almost guaranteed to turn you gay, so beware!

The frivolity aside, I just want to give a hearty "Boo Hiss" to all of the bigots who love to try to make life miserable for gay people. You're losing the battle, bigots, and your followers will hopefully awaken to the reality that they are being fleeced by you. The fact that you are spending some of this money on gay prostitutes is merely the hallucinogenic, unripe mulberry on top of your hypocrisy sundae.

Oh, and by the way, evolution is real, assholes!

Happy belated Pride Day, people!

And so is this.

P.S. It's truly depressing how many alleged "small government" types want the government persecuting people they don't like.

I was gonna add that, Thunder, but had to leave for work.

I had to spend a lot of time outside today, and I had a bad hair day.

I second the boo hiss.
I'm not gay, but I love your bi iPod.
This song is super fun, and totally new to me.
To celebrate our Pride parade I add a whole lotta Pet Shop Boys and Erasure to my iPod.

Awesome song.

I'm also trying to remember which commercial used that overture as their background music. Was it Marlboro?

Jennifer said...

one more thing- your BiPod needs some Bronsky Beat.

Probably, I'm not sure, though. That whole soundtrack is awesome.
