Here’s the video, watch it first and try not to let his insanely awesome mustache distract you from the real issue.
Back now? Good.
So CM Punk called this fan at ringside a homo. So what. No one in the area cared. In fact they all laughed as Punk tore this yellow bucktoothed tool down. You know why?
Words don’t hurt.
What does hurt is GLAAD and every other special interest group telling you they do. They are the ones giving power to such words by essentially brainwashing you in to believing that words can ruin your very fabric. They perpetuate the stereotype by acknowledging what these words now mean.
They have gone from an actual necessity to word police. They are now trying to dictate how and what a word should mean to someone? Who made GLAAD the spokesperson for all gays, lesbians, transsexuals and the rest? Why should anything, and I do mean anything, they do matter? Wasn’t their sole purpose the fight for equality? When did t become monitoring what people say?
Let’s be clear here. What Punk did hurt absolutely no one. Off the cuff remarks do not have that critical sting you are led to believe. For example; I am Polish. You think there isn’t one joke about being stupid, dumb, retarded (whoops) idiotic, slow or any other assortment of the like? It doesn’t matter at all. Words are words. Unless you are Matt Hardy who has never heard of the sticks and stones theory. (See got him in here.)
As for WWE, as a business they need to tell GLAAD to fuck off douche bags (wording chosen on purpose so save it). Really that is what all businesses should do with these sort of groups. These sort of things never come back to hurt them the outrage is manufactured. They get their name out in the press. It leads to more dollars. GLAAD makes bank off of these situations while muddying their stated purpose.
Sponsors always come back once the media moves on to the next dead baby or missing sorority girl.
The idea that someone has the right to boycott, change or in GLAAD’s case, train your natural (not an American right) right to free speech should sicken and scare you. GLAAD actually uses the word train in their press releases and everyone goes along with it. No one bats an eye.
No one, and I do mean no one, has the right to dictate what you think, say or feel. -Jeremy Maes
