The Sheltered Lives Of Stupid White Men

Joe the Plumber (it's an American thing) on gay marriage:

CT: In the last month, same-sex marriage has become legal in Iowa and Vermont. What do you think about same-sex marriage at a state level?

WURZELBACHER: "At a state level, it’s up to them. I don’t want it to be a federal thing. I personally still think it’s wrong. People don’t understand the dictionary—it’s called queer. Queer means strange and unusual. It’s not like a slur, like you would call a white person a honky or something like that. You know, God is pretty explicit in what we’re supposed to do—what man and woman are for. Now, at the same time, we’re supposed to love everybody and accept people, and preach against the sins. I’ve had some friends that are actually homosexual. And, I mean, they know where I stand, and they know that I wouldn’t have them anywhere near my children. But at the same time, they’re people, and they’re going to do their thing."

1) Anyone want to break it to Joe that God is make believe? He isn't explicit on anything because he is a fictional character in a made up story!
2) You wouldn't let your gay "friends" near your children? Erm... friend is such an over used word. I think Joe maybe met a gay person once, and decided they were his "friend". Bless him. He's like a 12 year old girl on Facebook.
3) Women and men are not for anything. We do not have a purpose. We are, in fact, pointless. Life is thus what we make it. Nobody makes it out alive.

If there was a God (which there isn't) I'd thank him for making me gay (which he didn't) because of the new perspective it gave me on life and the ability to see beyond my own sheltered existence and empathise with fellow human beings who live "alternative" lives to those of the privileged "majority". I wish I could make homophobes live a year as a gay teenager and see what they think about life, the world and everything at the end of that.
