When I get saddened by modern instances of anti-gay bigotry, and when I wonder if there’s ever going to be true equality for us in society, all I have to do is remember that things have been much, much worse.

Take this video, for instance: Boys Beware

Ah, the moral, family-friendly olden days! Don’t you miss ’em? I have to wonder if Sid Davis produced a similar film, Girls Be Vigilant, where perfectly heterosexual men stalk Jane and Betty and Linda. These men aren’t mentally ill with the “demand for an intimate relationship with members of their own sex,” they’re just mentally ill with the demand for an intimate relationship with members of the opposite sex. Oh, and they happen to pray on kids. Yes, one is a pedophiliac, one is a homosexual. They are interchangeable, the only difference being sexual preference. (And, come to think of it, that term itself—sexual preference&#8212seems a bit incorrect. Isn’t a preference a choice of some kind? Guess it’s semantic.)

***sigh***

People are dumb. I’m sure you know that. Put a bunch of them together (in ANY group) and they somehow aggregate their stupidity in to full-fledged insanity.

I want to move to Alaska or Canada and become a hermit. Not a crab.

The biggest problem we face in this world is misunderstanding. Oh, and greed.

Robb has posted a much funnier commentary on the video than I have. (I blame being sick and work, two things which have been taking up my precious “free to be you and me” time over the last two weeks.)

Go, laugh and enjoy Robb’s blog!

While there, you may also run into some horrifying shots taken while shooting episode 3 of the sitcom. Or you may not. It’s up to you. Do you have the wherewithal to go find them?

Have you ever seen the hilariously, breathlessly paranoid “Perverted Justice” episodes of Dateline NBC? I wonder how far we’ve REALLY come in 45 years …
