Audio: 'Party in the GOP'

by Jeremy Hooper

MalzbergRadio host Steve Malzberg is a particularly eye-opening personality when it comes to homo-centric detestation, because he seems to need only the most minor of impetuses to launch into full-blown attack mode. And when he goes to those places o' scorn, Mr. M's disgust, be it feigned or natural, tends to be ratcheted to a bizarrely visceral level.

Just last month, we heard Mr. Malzberg go what the kids call "apeshit" because he heard inaccurate information that Guy Ritchie's new Sherlock Holmes movie is to feature a gay relationship at the center of his story. Now he's turned his rage towards innocuous comments that ace Advocate reporter Kerry Eleveld made about a certain YouTube viral video:

Geez, Stevie: Conservatives are supposed to be scared and/or vomitous simply because of gay male creativity and a reporter's acknowledgement thereof? That reporter would be homophobic if she made a generalization (which she qualified as such) about straight male strongpoints? And a TV host is worthy of falsely macho scorn simply because he references a "Sex and the City" episode?

Well you might wanna be careful, if that's the best you can come up with, Mr. M. We wouldn't want you to prove Kerry's point about which sexual orientation tends to be more creative!

But you've certainly added more fuel to our belief that social conservatives' rage against LGBTs often has much less to do with whatever political matter you are claiming to be part of our "agenda," and much more to do with the fact that we can freely Party in the USA (or FIP) without having to first obtain permission from this nation's self-appointed moral authoritarians.

Your thoughts

I get so sick of a small group of guys determining what men are supposed to like. I'm straight, and I like art and music and cooking and theater and baseball and hockey. A friend of mine is gay, and he likes art and music and cooking and theater and and baseball and hockey. So what if a straight guy likes "Sex in the City"? So what if a gay guy is a rabid Oakland Raiders fan? I thought this was America. Oh wait, it is.
