Shapiro spilled his disdain for the entire concept of transgenderism: “What exactly is the battle? I mean, self-definition is what you do, and my baby’s doing it at 18 months old. I was unaware that you get a medal for it.” And when Shapiro refused to call Jenner and Tur by anything but male pronouns, the segment went straight down the tubes. “Forget about the disrespect,” Shapiro said, in the full clip first reported by Breitbart.
“Facts don’t care about your feelings. It turns out that every chromosome, every cell in Caitlyn Jenner’s body, is male, with the exception of some of his sperm cells.” We both know chromosomes don’t necessarily mean you’re male or female,” Tur replied, and then put her hand on Shapiro’s shoulder. “So you don’t know what you’re talking about, you’re not educated on genetics.” That prompted Shapiro to ask: “What are your genetics, sir?” And off we go. “You cut that out now, or you’ll go home in an ambulance,” Tur shot back while holding Shapiro by the back of his neck.
he rest of the show’s guests then explained to Shapiro how he knew full-well his use of “sir” was meant to be inflammatory, but he was not moved. “It’s not a matter of aggressively insulting,” he said. “The entire discussion is whether we are embracing mental illness and delusion as a society.”
When the conversation resumed after a commercial break, the fire hadn’t subsided. Tur told Shapiro, “You’re consumed with hatred,” after the conservative commentator denied any ill will towards the transgender community. “You’re a little man,” she added. “Little boy.”
Knowing HLN, if Zoey and Ben had gone to blows the producers (and especially Drew) would’ve probably egged them on. This pick of guests and seating was clearly deliberate. But I must admit that I’d pay good money to see Zoey kick “Little Ben’s” pompous ass across the studio and back.
The right wing site RedState whose parent company Salem Communications, owns dozens of Christian radio stations as well as Twitchy, Townhall, and HotAir has joined the Mozilla boycott launched several days ago by Brietbart.com’s Ben Shapiro’s Truth Revolt.
Today, users of the Firefox web browser were given a message when accessing most of our Front Page content at RedState. They were told that this site could not be displayed, because of a conflict with the values of the Mozilla corporation, and they were suggested to visit another site. Send a message that you won’t take it lying down. Get another browser. Tell your friends what you’re doing, and why. Safari, Chromium, Internet Explorer, Konqueror, you name it. None of these browsers is developed by a corporation that is persecuting individuals for what they do with their own time and money. Firefox is, because that’s what Mozilla has done to Brendan Eich.
With the right wing spin machine going full force on Eich’s stepping down from his CEO position at Mozilla after blowback by it’s employees, techies across the country and the LGBT community after it was discovered he not only donated to California’s Prop 8 but also supports extreme right wing and anti-semetic fringe politico’s. Will this situation spin out of control like the Chick-fil-A debacle of 2013?
While the grassroots gay community has stood strong on the subject a few contrarian and fearful “assimilation queens” have been opening questioning what happened and questioning the community itself, (Bruni, Sullivan, and Mixner) giving additional ammo to the right wing for their latest “Gay Mafia” and “Christian persecution angle” while our National Orgs (HRC, GLAAD. The Task Force aka Gay Inc.) who have the ears of the mainstream press have remained silent and are again using the “lets not talk about it and it will go away strategy” that allowed Chick-fil-A to become the mess it did in the first place. HRC, GLAAD. The Task Force either need to step up and start taking proactive actions when situations like this occur or they need to hand over the reigns and let others to be spokespeople for our community. Their silence on some very important subjects and battles is not only deafening, but dangerous to the LGBT communities fight for equality itself.
Gay Inc. needs to understand that LGBT advocacy is not only press releases and gala’s and every once in awhile they are going to have to stand up and fight and get their hands dirty.
Brietbart.com senior editor Little Ben Shapiro (who looks and acts like he should be sorted into Slytherin at Hogwarts) doubled down on his homophobia this week much to the chagrin of Captain America himself studly actor Chris Evans whose brother is gay.
Shapiro then went on the Piers Morgan Show to explain himself and Morgan took the whiney and extremely effeminate Shapiro to task for his homophobia to which Shapiro accused Morgan and Collins of hating America by thinking that it’s all homophobic not just a minority of evil idiots like Shapiro.
After the program actor Chris Evans took to Twitter and laid his opinion of Shapiro out in under 140 characters tweeting “I genuinely dislike Ben Shapiro”
In over 140 characters let me say that Ben Shapiro Shapiro’s a troll. He’s a typical Breitbart attention-seeking whore. Shapiro is the guy who claimed that Chuck Hagel belonged to a non-existent group called “Friends of Hamas.”
But the most disgusting thing about Shapiro is that he makes these comments at the expense of the gay community so as a Jewish man he be accepted by the largely anti-Semitic GOP. the Party of Jeebus freaks by regurgitating the GOP’s intellectually dishonest talking points against gay people, so he buys himself one more day tolerance from them and earn his weekly paycheck of blood money.
