With so many completely despicable/annoying gay organizations (Human Rights Campaign, Log Cabin Republicans, etc etc etc) it seems unimaginable that one could stand out as the most birdbrained and– DARE I SAY– FAGGY. And yet! GLAAD (that stands for the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) manages this handily! Last we heard from these fools they had taken up the pointless and idiotic fag patrol mantle; now it seems that they’ve changed their mission to shameless corporate shillery.
Apparently worried that ABC might be criticized for homophobia re: Adam Lambert’s banishment from the airwaves, GLAAD has valiantly rushed to the television network’s defense, issuing the following statement:
“It would appear that the kiss between Adam Lambert and his keyboardist did not factor into ABC’s decision,” said Jarrett Barrios, President of the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD). “ABC has a history of positive gay and transgender inclusion that includes featuring kisses between gay and lesbian couples on-air.”
Well thanks for that charming corporate apologia, GLAAD! But shouldn’t you be getting back to your normal job of flaccid whining and gay speech policing!?
