Video: Ann versus 'the general population'

by Jeremy Hooper
On this week's edition of "Gay USA," fabulous co-host Ann Northrop raised a point that has been annoying us all week. Responding to the media's somewhat irresponsible coverage of the MRSA scare, Northrop said this:

Amen! This is something we come across all the time in not only the fringe outlets of our opposition, but also the mainstream media. They all too often make it sound like an issue is not an issue of value until it affects a heterosexual. As if it takes the majority population to break a societal ill out of a box that's deserving of marginalized lip service and into one that is deserving of vigilance. Such a view is not only a threat to those who are fighting whatever potential threat is being discussed, but also those who are fighting the casually heterosexist attitudes that keep LGBT people detached from society at large.

So thanks Ann, for bringing this to notice. Perhaps once it pisses off a heterosexual TV personality in a similar fashion, we'll be able to make strides towards combatting it.
