An odd title for a blog post perhaps, but Stacy asked a question, and I answered it
What? I’d missed this news: Evidently, the rock guitarist’s lesbian divorce turned nasty and Daily Beast columnist Tricia Romano decided to write about it in the context of “what does it mean for the gay rights movement?”
This is retarded: When Charlie Sheen got divorced, did anyone write about that in the context of “what does this mean for the cocaine-and-hookers lifestyle movement”? I think not. For some reason, when two lesbians break up, that’s about political rights, whereas when Charlie Sheen breaks up with somebody . . . . Well, if he accuses the hooker of stealing his watch, nobody really views Charlie as a victim of discrimination or anything, you see.
As I see it, the Left is obsessed with placing labels on everyone. They take people, and make them think that EVERYTHING that happens to them is a direct result of their skin color/religion/gender/sexual preference. The Left has played this identity politics game for decades now. Generally, the Left has been all too effective in embittering Blacks, Hispanics, women, Gays, Lesbians, and any other demographic they can come up with. This is all about keeping these groups voting Democrat.
I have worked with a few people who have fallen into this trap. EVERYTHING bad that happens to them is because they are a Lesbian, or Black, or a woman, or an atheist, blah, blah, blah.
So, of course, the Etheridge divorce MUST be about Lesbianism. At least in the minds of the Left.
