Attn. 'pro-family' leaders:

by Jeremy Hooper

If you choose to send the writer of this website an email with the presumptive, arrogant subject line, "Repent, Jeremy," and you proceed to criticize his frank acknowledgement of a certain sexual act that realistically takes place among some consenting adults, your words are unlikely to hold much weight or credence if it was you yourself who posted the unedited pic that led to the discussion of that particular bedroom behavior in the first place. For while you might think it's "yuck" to give a benign verbal hat tip to this certain action, most people -- especially among those who operate from the sort of perspective that makes them think it's their place to tell others who they don't even know to "repent" -- would surely agree that the unwarranted, suggestive, NSFW photo you chose to run is far more disruptive to one's sensibilities.

All the best,

Good As You

P.S. That's Mister "Lost Friend" to you, pal. :-)

Your thoughts

Is this about Mr. LaBarbera? If that's the case, since when has he EVER been your friend? Just because I can have a civil discussion with somebody doesn't necessarily make them my friend LOL

If he believes the action going on in the picture he posted is limited to gay men, he's crazy. When you live in an era where people are increasingly open about their sexuality, you learn things. And one thing I've learned is some women take advantage of their man having a cute ass, too! LOL And of course men have been doing the same thing to women forever.

I'm really curious Jeremy. Can you show any of the letter that they sent you or is it that bad that you couldn't post it.

Posted by: Sam | Aug 1, 2008 9:41:50 AM

Nah, let's just leave it where it is. It's not that it's "bad" -- it's short and all of the pertinent details are addressed here. It's just that (a) I wouldn't post it without obtaining permission, and I really don't think it would be granted; and (b) I have no desire to get in a personal back-and-forth, much preferring to just address the silliness in the abstract. I made the point that I won't to make.

It's more than a little difficult to comment when we don't even have a link and have only coy references to go on. So I guess I'll just "leave my comment where it is" and reserve it for less "abstract" issues.

Isn't that MASTER 'Lost Friend'.....?

Marcia: I'm confused -- why do you feel like you MUST comment on this? You've never once commented on a post.

There is no link to be provided. There is nothing else to say, really. A particular person wrote, and it annoyed me. I addressed it in a certain way. Everything I wanted to say about it is on the page.

keep it up, jeremy. you are obviously doing excellent work if you are getting under their skin so much. ;p

I always find it telling that he feels he must e-mail you privately.

I suppose subconsciously he knows his ideas wouldn't stand up to scrutiny in a comments section.

Posted by: Evan | Aug 1, 2008 1:24:13 PM

yes, care to elaborate?

Ain't "leader" a bit of an overstatement? More like "one-man freak parade" if it's the particular "pro-family leader" I'm thinking of.
