Video: 'Big Brother' on gays' big bother

by Jeremy Hooper

::sigh:: Can we not consume one form of media in which the "fag-hating" folks at Westboro Baptist aren't given mention? This is from last night's "Big Brother After Dark" show on Showtime Too, where the BB house guests were talking about what they deleted from their computer before coming on the show:

You know, it always surprises us when people don't know about Westboro. But then again, we live in a little bubble wherein Fred Phelps is synonymous with "holy mother of batsh*t crazy." The rest of the nation, many of whom do not have to so readily fight to just live in peace, are not always as clued-in to the ugliness that our community faces. Thus the reason why we like to put it out there for folks to see, as we truly think that if the majority knew the full picture of anti-gay antipathy that exists in this country (both Phelpsian and more mainstream), then far more would step up and help us fight the battles that so cruelly rob us of our right to "normalcy."
