Where Is The Outrage?

All this week after the news came out about the tragic suicide of Tyler Clementi at Rutgers University following his same sex encounter video being posted online I kept expecting some Sparkle Cow outrage. After all, don’t they style themselves as champions against all that is bias against homosexuals?

They sure spend enough time attacking people who don’t like Adam Lambert as bigots, haters and gay bashers online. They make out like they are their very own chapter of the GLTB and the Rainbow Coalition. Truthfully they’re not even a Rainbow Cotillion, just a bunch of people that only care about discrimination against gays when they can use it to defend Madam’s craptastic music.

They said nothing during the tense week where most thinking people in this nation waited for the government to repeal the failed homophobic policy known as ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ Not a word,, not a peep of protest from the Sparkle Cows. Some crusaders against homophobia they are.

And this week, the news of the tragic suicide of a promising young man in the face of harassment over the same sex encounter seems to have generated exactly zero passion in the group. I bet you none of them could tell you that there have been five gay youths to take their lives in the last three weeks either, like Raymond Chase. Nothing registered in cow brains with the deaths of Seth Walsh and Asher Brown or Billy Lucas either. That glittery bubble they live in must be one very sheltered place.

Fakers, phonies, actual homophobic biddies hiding behind lust. Waste of space.

It makes me sick, their lip service to something they actually profess to believe in but they refute by their inaction.

Where’s your outrage and your passion now?

Please consider supporting the Make It Better Project and their week of action to end suicides among LGBT youth.

    The tragic death of Tyler Clementi has stayed in my mind all week. My husband and I have discussed it many times and our hearts are sick over it. The sheer anguish this young man must have felt to lead him to the final outcome must have been tortuous. Not only have I not seen the Sparkle Herd give it nary a second thought, I have not seen their Sparkle Gawd refer to it either. Other gay celebrities have had strong voices regarding this travesty throughout the week, Ellen even crying about it. If it doesn’t have to do with Madam directly I suppose it doesn’t matter to the Cows. After all, they have more important things to discuss, like what they should gift Lamebert for his birthday and where he is vacationing. They wouldn’t dare let those TRULY suffering from homophobia get in the way of such “important” things.

    Homophobia is not constituted by disliking someone’s concert or song, homophobia is harassment, violence and driving someone to suicide by hate.

    FDC, I’m afraid this post will fall on deaf ears. The Sparkle Cows have tunnel vision. I applaud you for making this entry. Prayers to the families of those lost and to all the TRUE victims of homophobia.

    FDC, this is a very well written and VERY true post. These Lambert fans, these champions of gay rights and these outspoken warriors against homophobia DON’T GIVE A FLYING F*CK about homophobia unless it pertains to Lambert.

    Here’s one for you, cows. I HATE ADAM LAMBERT. I hate him, I hate him, I HATE HIM. It has absolutely NOTHING to do with the fact that he is gay. It has EVERYTHING to do with the fact that he sings horribly, acts like a self-important tool, comes across as extremely fake, says anything that spews out of his mouth without ANY reprecussion, has absolutely NO humility, panders to the cows in some of the most disgusting ways (panty sniffing, anyone?) and actually thinks that he is as good as Bowie, Mercury and Elvis. THAT’S WHY I hate him. I don’t give a shit who he sleeps with.

    Nonna, it also has stayed in my mind all week, it’s bothered me more than anything in the news of late. This poor kid, this lonely kid who felt ashamed and betrayed and felt the only way out was suicide. How alone he must have felt. Would it have been that bad if his family/friends found out? We don’t know. It just breaks my heart, that when I think about it my heart actually hurts a bit. This kid’s parents hopefully would have loved him unconditionally. It’s too bad it’s too late. 😦 😦 😦

    All you parents out there, let your kids know that you love them NO MATTER WHAT. If you’ve loved your child his/her entire life, that love shouldn’t change because that child realizes they are gay.

    Excuse me, I meant “repercussion”.

    The Sparkle Herds activism is as phony as their knowledge of music. Their outrage over an off-colour joke made at Lambert’s expense was disgusting in its hypocrisy. The juxtaposition of these suicides with that other incident just shows how transparent their motive for supporting LGBT rights are.

    Lambert is not much better. He’s quick to use his gay status to cover his asinine behaviour but as I asked before at TI, what has this assclown ever done in support of gay rights or to condemn discrimination. He tweeted his pleasure that Prop 8 was overturned along with EVERY OTHER CELEBRITY in Hollywood. Big whoop!

    The level of abuse suffered by gay teens is horrible. It’s unacceptable that this is still going on in this day and age.

      A-fucking-men. It has nothing to do with the actual cause of LGBT rights and everything to do with what they perceive ADAM cares about. Deep down, to them it’s right up their with his favorite car or brand of liquor (OOOH, Adam, I like Maseratis and Patron TOOOOO!!11!!1!!). If Adam Lambert was a straight member of the NRA these loons would all suddenly be Second Amendment supporters.

      • B York Says:

        Adam Lambert and his fans really have no f*cking clue about LGBT rights and how hard activists from all walks of life, including celebrities, are working to create equality, including the right to live bully free, marry the one you love and have a family.

        Lambert’s acts of courage are to be more outrageous than Pink, Madonna, Lady Gaga, etc with his coy, I’m breaking new ground because I’m living my life openly gay and the whole world can see it. Well that’s not doing shit for a gay kid stuck in a conservative town in the rural mid-west. It’s doing squat for guaranteeing LGBT people the same rights to marriage, children, spousal benefits, service in the military and so on. Fine, he doesn’t want to be an activist or poster boy for gay rights. Right?!?!?

        Well think again…

        One of his clueless fans created (ripped off) a photo of Adam Lambert that mimics the brilliant NOH8 photo campaign:

        People paid to participate, funds going towards fighting this odious piece of legislature. But no, Adam did not participate – he just freaking posted the fan art on his twitter wall. What a champion!
