Such a dumb assessment!
Okay, not to downplay the nastiness of Rep. Foxx comments -- but is it possible for Perez Hilton to denounce any female's rhetoric without resorting to nonsense like this?
And if not, can he stop putting on a suit and playing the role of activist? Please. Emphasis on the please.
Some of us who prefer reasoned refutations of regression are already sick of the mileage that our far-right opposition has been able to get out of Perez's sexist bumblefuckery of the Miss California situation. So if he can't criticize or even denounce without ad hominem "b" and "c" words, we are begging our fellow blogger: Stick with superficial attacks on whatever outfit Heidi Montag chose to wear on a specific day, and let us take on the congressmembers who wear bias on their sleeves. Because while an assessment of Heidi might lead to awkward stares at Fred Segal, this sort of highly-trafficked low road can cause has caused repercussions for an entire movement.

No because he's a dumb b*tch!

Riddle me this - will the religious right sidestep Foxx's comments and try to use Hilton's comments to claim that misogyny is active in the "gay male lifestyle?"

PEREZ!! SHUT UP ALREADY!!
Emphasis on what I just said!!
At this point, I would defend Foxx from Perez even though Foxx is SO wrong, but the bill has already passed and I'm already moving on.

I appreciate the humor, however, the comments Virginia Foxx made today on the floor were so disgusting all I can do is cry knowing that a Mother had to sit there and listen to the lies.

Have anyone noticed that Perez Hilton has--- how shall one say.... mental problems? The more abuse and scorn piled on him, the better he likes it.... in fact, he likes it enough to sink the whole ship as long as he can get vilified the whole way down. He will take ANY kind of attention, whether it's positive or negative, as long as he gets some.
Just ignore him about this whole thing and he will soon move on to something else. Insults and pleadings to abandon the newly-found "activism" will only keep him fixated on the activity.

At least he didn't call her a cunt. I did. Why do you care what Perez Hilton called that dispicable woman? We're not going to get any rights if we wait for everyone "to like" us.

The object isn't to get them to 'like us', it's to get them to have human respect/decency for us.
This can not be accomplished that well if people call the opposite side swear words.

As she is KO's WORST Person in the World... for saying these things, when Judy Shepard was in the gallery... See Countdown transcript tomorrow... His summation:
She should not be representing the American people... She should resign... She is a national shame.
Not only that, but I will say it...she is a SHAME to Women and Mothers everywhere. If I were in her district, she would be out tomorrow! MOTHERS know how to defend their young. (Not that Dads dont too...you know what I mean.)
Mother Against Rep. Foxx where are you??

Normally I'd agree with you, but in this case I think "dumb bitch" wasn't strong enough.

And the object is also not to do anything that's counterproductive. I don't see the sense with giving the opposition ammunition to tell lies about us. It's not about being liked, it's about being smart.

I suppose Judy Shepard is somewhat use to negative things being said, but this was just too much. I sort of wish Judy could have taken a couple of swings at Foxx.

Unfortunately, I think Hilton's inability to see beyond his own face is only going to hurt here...certainly, his comments do fall in line with what I see in the gay community: scads and scads of woman-bashing. Yep, she's dumb, but he could have used THAT as his nominative and left it at that.

Rep Foxx is a dumb bitch! Perez called it right in this case!
And BTW, don't be so high and mighty about who is and who isn't the right kind of Gay Activist.
