Finally someone Said It….

Hey guys!  So, I was listening to Auntie Vera’s Podcast yesterday at the gym and one of the eloquently covered topics was the new public service announcement airing at home in the U.S. with Wanda Sykes.  Naturally, I looked the commercial up on Youtube when I got back home and I was so impressed that I thought I’d post it here to share with you.

The last time I visited home was my first real exposure to the commonly used catch phrase, “That’s so gay!”  It was sort of thoughtlessly used out of frustration by a person close to me, and then immediately followed by a “No offense, Tom!”  I remember thinking nothing of it at the time, mainly because I didn’t really understand how the context of something being bad or stupid equaled being gay.  The statement didn’t really make sense to me at the time, but in the time that followed till now I’ve come to resent the use of this phrase.  It does bother me when people say it, and I’d like to send up a little public praise to Wanda Sykes and Hillary Duff for having the courage to speak out for us.  It is bad enough that we are denied our fair share of civil rights by our own country in regards to marriage and equality.  However, I still believe that the following quote from the Declaration of Independence does and still hold true for ALL American citizens.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.”

Sooo….having said that, please watch the video and to all my straight and/or conservative listeners please think next time before you speak.  “That’s so gay!” is in fact very offensive and hurts especially when it comes from one you love.  Take care and talk to you guys again very very soon!

So Where is Tom?

evil-computer

Good morning, afternoon, evening….and all that good stuff!  I start to get this guilty feeling when i don’t post for a while, so I thought I’d at least sit down tonight and touch base with all my listeners.  It’s the least I can do, right?  Thanks so much for the emails i’ve recieved and as always i want you guys to know that I really appreciate them.  I’m actually having some “issues” with the podcast hosting service that I use.  You know the one that starts with an “L” and ends with a “N.”  I honestly think i’m at my wits end with their service…or lack there of in this case.  I’ve been unsubscribed and re subscribed to them more times than i can count now and I’m fed up with them.  Soooo…I’ve a big question for my fellow podcasters out there?  Does anyone out there have any hosting site recommendations?  Anyone use another besides the big ‘L’?  Hopefully i can get it sorted out and I will post another podcast as soon as I do.  Much love to you guys and promise to be back soon!
