Worldwide silliness in a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• The Prime Minister of Poland thinks society doesn’t need more gay people. Responding to criticism over a proposal to terminate teachers for “homosexual propaganda,” he said, “Nobody is limiting gay rights in Poland. … However, if we’re talking about not having homosexual propaganda in Polish schools, I fully agree with those who feel this way. … Such propaganda should not be in schools; it definitely doesn’t serve youth well. … It’s not in the interest of any society to increase the number of homosexuals — that’s obvious.” This guy’s gonna catch some heat now — that’s obvious.
• In New Delhi, arrest warrants were issued for Richard Gere and Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty after the two kissed at a public gathering. In conservative India, the kiss allegedly “transgressed all limits of vulgarity.” Apparently, India believes it’s not in the interest of any society to increase the number of heterosexuals. Although some might argue Gere doesn’t fall into that category.
• A Los Angeles Times sportswriter has revealed he’s a transsexual, and in a few weeks, he’ll be known as a woman. “I am a transsexual sportswriter,” wrote the man. “It has taken more than 40 years, a million tears and hundreds of hours of soul-wrenching therapy for me to work up the courage to type those words.” No comments yet from Poland or India.
• Don Imus’ ex-producer blasted the Rev. Al Sharpton for overreacting to the infamous slur against the Rutgers women’s basketball team. “The media treated him like he was Nelson Mandela, for God’s sake, without asking him about his past comments, this sanctimonious skunk,” ripped Bernard McGuirk. “They appeased this terrorist here. It’s almost like free-speech surrender.” McGuirk should feel damned lucky he’s not in Poland or India.
