Anti-Equality Blogger: Gays Totally Powerful, Straights Rule!

Sometimes, you really just have to laugh at stuff on Internet.

Anti-equality blogger "Playful Walrus" is totally pissed about Tina Fey's statements condemning Tracy Morgan's homophobic stand-up act. At his hoppin' namesake blog, he quotes Fey's statement where she expresses hope that "30 Rock's" gay and lesbian employees will accept Morgan's apology because without gay people he wouldn't have "clothes to wear, sets to stand on, scene partners to act with or a printed-out paycheck from accounting to put in his pocket."

In response, Walrus claims that "30 Rock" must be engaging in illegal discrimination for, apparently, only hiring gay people.

Like, it's really not at all clear if he's joking or if he thinks there's some sort of "30 Rock" hiring ban on heterosexuals. I wouldn't put it past some people, steeped in frothy paranoia about the homofascist agenda, to actually think Hollywood only hires gay people. For, Walrus goes on to conclude:

"...Morgan is just another example showing that the general public is not 'anti-gay', nor are homosexual people powerless (as marriage neutering advocates have argued). They are obviously extremely powerful."

Oh, I see.

The homosexual people can hold regular jobs as writers, costume designers, set builders, and accountants just like the Normal People can. I can't think of bigger sign that the homosexual people are taking over the world than this.

And who would know better about these allegedly non-existent anti-gay attitudes among the general public than a dude who devotes almost his entire blog presence to monomanically opposing gay equality and writing smart-ass, sloppy-minded retorts to the slightest positive media coverage of LGBT advances in society?

His parting non-sequitur:

"By the way, if it weren't for heterosexual people, none of us would be here."

Geez, why doesn't he just buy some of those giant foam #1 hands and organize a Straight Pride Parade already?
