Why did I just remind you? Oh, you’ll see.
If you watch Buffy, you know that Willow Rosenberg is a witch. She’s also a lesbian. That means she likes to have “relations” with girls. And by my clever use of the pronoun “she” you can, I’m guessing, understand that she is a, well, she. And hopefully by “relations” you understand that I mean “get naked in bed and play with each other”, yes?
Well, Gerald Allen, State Representative of lovely (stuck in the past) Alabama, “wants to ban novels with gay characters from public libraries, including university libraries.”
Now, I know what you’re saying. “Hi, Buffy is TV, and, er, books are, well, not TV.”
But y’know, it has to start somewhere, and I can tell you right now that Mr. Gerald (“Fuck the Present”) Allen will probably not be satisfied until he has managed to spread his intolerance throughout our culture. Hell, I can only imagine what Allen’s thoughts of Alexander are …
Dave Friedman says, “The boys in Alabama never learn that the idiocy of their politicians makes them the tragic laughingstock of our country.” Well, at least the boys in West Virginia are getting some slack.
Allen did say one thing quite telling, “[our] culture, how we know it today, is under attack from every angle.” What Mr. Allen doesn’t realize is that he’s the one doing the attacking.
