succumbing to peer pressure

Friday, February 18, 2005

So I'm lying in bed this morning, listening to the tail end of one of those awful morning news programs, when after a commercial break they do a teaser for the nightly news. After mentioning that a certain cartoon is going to tackle the topic of gay marriage (duh, the Simpsons) the announcer says, "Is this funny or just another case of Hollywood not getting it?" Wh-what? I'm sorry, not getting what? Not getting that everyone is entitled to the same legal rights in the United States? Not getting that this administration has been fueling a mean, hateful tirade against homosexuals? Did a mainstream news program seriously just imply that gay marriage is wrong? Damn that liberal media!
