On the Other Hand…

At HuffPo, Noah Michelson serves up  a one-sentence summation of what we’ve actually hearned from the Ducks Die Nasty controversy:

You can say whatever you want, including that gay people are sinful and full of “murder, envy, strife, hatred” and are in the same league as those who enjoy being penetrated by barnyard animals and that black people were “happy” and were not “singing the blues” when Jim Crow laws ruled America, and as long as you later tack on “I love all of humanity” and I would “never incite or encourage hate” and throw around the word “tolerance,” and as long as there’s enough money and publicity swirling and more ready to be made, you will face absolutely no consequences and if anything you’ll be celebrated as a hero and lauded as an icon of freedom — some will even go so far as to call you the “Rosa Parks” of our generation — while the people you were talking about will still be vilified and will have to fight even harder against society’s belief that they are — even in the 21st century, even in a country that is not supposed to be ruled by religion or heartless, hateful zealots — at their very core all of those vile and (let it be said once and for all) patently untrue things that you said about them.

While I can’t say that I disagree with it, I nevertheless have a question: At its core, how far removed is this from the lesson that is perpetually taught as to what Gay, Inc. – and its apologists – must be permitted to get away with regarding maligining trans people who disagree with the lie that is incremental progress, the Marriage Derangement Syndrome agenda and, beyond that, even questioning the very legitimacy of trans people’s existence?

Here’s a dose of reality for you to chug as 2014 arrives: A&E is just the HRC of basic cable.
