'The f*g of America'

by Jeremy Hooper

Jordan-big-brotherMore anti-gayness from what is shaping up to be the most slur-filled season of "Big Brother" yet. This report from Reality Blurred:

Talking to her allies in the back yard and upset about the eviction of Braden, Jordan said Jessie is “the fag of America.” Michelle walked away, asking her not to use that word, because it offended her, but insisting she’s not mad. There was some brief discussion about Michelle’s bisexuality, and someone said something about Michele being married to a man, apparently not quite grasping the idea of bisexuality.

Jordan justified her comment, later saying, “I always say fag and I always say gay.”
...
About an hour later, Jordan said, “Sorry for saying ‘fag.’ I didn’t mean to offend you. I say gay a lot. I need to work on that.”

Yes, Jordan, it does seem that you need to "work on that." Hopefully national exposure of your seeming inability to even comprehend what you've done wrong will help you with that.

Your thoughts

I truly respect and get the point you're trying to make with your Big Brother coverage.

But come on - it not like the Big Brother cast is full with a bunch of brain trusts, It's a show about douchbags to make other douchbags feel better about themselves.

Sorry for saying 'douchbags' I didn’t mean to offend anyone. I say douchbags a lot. I need to work on that.

No big "point" intended, Alonzo. Just noting another development on this here American landscape :-)

But some would argue that BB is representative of American society -- a microcosm of sorts. So in that sense, it is interesting to see just how frequently slurs crop up in that house.
