It is as it as because of THIS:

"if white people are so privileged
why is there a Black Entertainment
Network and no White
Entertainment Network?

Men don't have privilege, there
are women's only gyms!

Why isn't there a campus centre
for straight/cis people!?

SAME REASONS WHY IN MARIO
KART YOU DON'T GET BLUE
SHELLS OR LIGHTNING BOLTS
WHEN YOU'RE ALREADY IN
FIRST PLACE, *expletive*



I should know, as really many of those points mentioned by the OP are valid for me, too!

Edit: This is a quotation from some twitter-feed (twitter.com...), but I was unable to insert that pic here.

Bob needs to reach down and see if he has a pair because right now he sounds like a whining bitch so tell him to man up. And here's a nickels worth of free advice to Bob as long as you worry about what other people think then you will never be able to live a happy life.

He explained that every movie or TV show now forces the homosexual lifestyle down our throats even though they only make up about 3-5% of the population.

But a very large percentage of the performing and creative arts are homosexual. It's no surprise when you consider that.

Side note: the two homosexual Creative Directors I worked for in advertising were far superior people/talent to the three other heterosexual creative directors I worked with.


Can't you just imagine what would happen if someone claimed that "white heterosexuals" were BETTER at something than homosexuals? You'd have a series of screaming banshees crying "Racist Haters!" to the ends of the Earth. There would be demands for whomever said such a thing to be banned, strung up, sued, and all manner of punishments inflicted.

Yet it's OK to say the opposite.

Do you get it yet?

What is also interesting about that comment.....is ... I guess if you want to be more artistic (which is a type of intellect)....so essentially ... if you want to be smarter....just turn ....gay? Because gay people are smarter.... I think is what he is implying.

I think it means that....sexual deviation creates creativity.

you must remember that "Bob" was just talking to a good friend on the phone....there was much conversation and then reflection....it was more of a comment (deeper more philosophical in nature) than I think you are giving credit.

he was neither whining nor complaining but taking note of a direction that things have taken.

He was not passing judgement on people not like him or even passing judgement on people that he felt were attacking his way of life.....just taking note that things were taking place...and judgement was being placed on his lifestyle.

I think he was seeing the issues that women, blacks and homosexuals have had to deal with and was relating to it.....

I don't know. My husband is 1/8th Native American. He was adopted by blue collar Tennessee white folks. He looks about as pale as anyone. He doesn't know much about his NA heritage except that he has it. Everything he's earned in life, he's done as a standard white hetero Christian male. For fun, he keeps a tally of the things he could have had if he claimed the NA heritage.

The differences in the lists is lengthy. For example, he lost out on at least on cushy government job because he and the other candidate were more or less equal in qualifications ... but she was female and thus "diverse." Had he claimed his Native American status ... he would have technically been more diverse because she was a white female and he might have landed that job at least three years earlier than his break in at the corporation he currently works for.

Then, there are all the scholarships and grants and ...

So, yeah, I'd say being from the so-called class of privilege really only means that everyone else just gets to use you as the politically incorrect whipping boy they can use to feel morally superior to.

"Under attack" and "being repositioned" are two different things.

All the other 'strange' people's cultural choices he voiced (except for a largely corrupt gov, that is) are simply getting more acceptance to live as they see fit, not being pushed down anyone's throat by force.

It is actually a whimpy, prosecution oriented paranoia he's voicing that's really an agenda pushed by Fox news and AM talk radio to gain more corrupt gov power by getting scared white folks to team up under the "old fashioned" political idiots vying for power.

So that part of the MSM's propaganda machine seems to be working pretty well... sigh.

Bob can sigh a breath of relief, because he is wrong


Yes a lot of creative people are gay, but not all gay people are artsy types.

Let me tell you a true story about Bob's clone and his eldest son.

You see, Bob has many clones the world over, my own dad is one such clone and if he were to do his 'Bobness' checklist it would look like this;


I am a male
I am white
I am heterosexual
I have a wife (who doesn’t work but chose to stay home with the kids)
I have five kids
I work for myself on my own farm
I am a Christian
I own guns
I like to watch sport on TV
I think homosexuality is wrong
I like to hunt and fish and camp out in the bush
I feel it is important to prepare for the worst but hope for the best
I feel the government is a bunch of pansies and lefties.

The thing is this Bob clone (my Dad) raised his four boys and one girl to think and act just like him. The problem was that his eldest son somehow became one of them thar homosexual types that he didn't like very much. Bob's clone can't understand why, when he made it perfectly clear to God and his son's he didn't want no homos in his family and he even signed a petition against them when they were decriminalising it.

Bob's son however is a regular chip of the old Bob block. He is a carbon copy of Bob's clone in every way, except he doesn't have kids and because the farming world is run by Bob's many clones he can't get a job in that field. Sadly he had to leave for the city where he dreams of returning to a farm of his own because he loves the life and work his dad has.

Bob's clone was deeply insulted when he found out his own son was one of these homosexual folk. He was so offended that he rejected his son for going against what had been taught to him. His son was forced out in the big wide world at the age of 17 as an orphan - suddenly motherless and fatherless (Mother was a lady bob and agreed with everything Bob's clone said on this issue)

So Bobs clone's son had to make his way in the world alone with no help and no moral support from his family. Bob's son learned to let go of the feelings of anger and betrayal however and just got on with his life, telling everyone that he was an orphan with no family for many years.

Then one day, around 20 years later the darndest thing happened. Bob's clone picked up the newspaper and there was the son he had disowned all of those years ago in it receiving an award for being the best in the country for his work. Bob's clone had some kind of epiphany that day. He realised that without any of his support his son had not withered and died, he had not become some lost and hopeless drug addict, he'd gone on to fight just like he'd been taught to and in fact had actually done very well for himself.

So Bob's clone picked up the phone and he called his son and started a conversation. His son was a little bit shocked and weary at first, expecting to be attacked for something, but Bob's clone just wanted to say "well done son, I'm proud of you"

On that day Bob's clone started to make a change. He realised for the first time that gay people are not always the effeminate little 'fairies' that he hated. In fact once he started to get to know his own son again that they can be remarkably like him.

It might be age (Bob's clone is 65 now) but Bob's clone is starting to mellow and realise that the world does not have to fit into his rigid idea of what is right and wrong. In fact now that he is letting go of that 'my way or the highway' mentality he is becoming a lot happier. And guess what? Bob's clone has re-discovered a talent he kept hidden for many years because it was 'not manly enough' - Bob's clone is quite a talented artist. Yep, the old dairy farming homo hating manly man from the land is now painting pictures and quite good ones too.

its to bad we all cant walk in each others shoes for a week. I think most of us would see how much alike we really are. We always look at what stands out the most as far as our difference go. Its to bad we cant get out of our own way as far as a species goes. We then could do a lot of good. But that would be utopia.

great story....

and I am glad you and "clone" are back on terms as nothing should be able to break that bond.

so...you answered my question....you also felt attacked or even worse...abandoned because of who you are.

and Bob's clone probably felt the evil world had turned you against him or...."attacked" him

and you further prove SkepticOrverlords point that homosexuals are superior ..... since you are the best at whatever it is you do


and since "Bob's Clone" was proud of you....I think it is safe to say it wasn't gay porn

Lol, you made me smile a bit just then.

Bob's clone is a technological dinosaur. We never had a computer and the internet hadn't been invented yet anyway. We didn't even own a vcr in our house until long after I was gone because lady Bob thought they were the gateway of the devil.

So, no porn had no influence on any of our family

I'm sure Bob is a nice person, but I think he may be a bit melodramatic.

What does he mean when he says he is under attack?

Does he actually feel hatred coming from people on a daily basis because he is a straight male? Is he less likely to be served in a restaurant? Has he had rights taken away from him because of the color of his skin? Have his driving privileges been revoked? What about his right to vote? Does he have a curfew that he must adhere to? Does he pay more for goods and services, than say, a homosexual person? Has he been denied his right to practice religion? What about enrolling/attending school? Has he been denied a job because he is a male?

Or....Is it that he is simply afraid of anything that he doesn't personally understand? Because he has identified himself as a straight, white male, is that what he would prefer to see on television or read about in books? And anything to the contrary feels scary and foreign?

My guess is probably the latter.

You know there were people that were outraged at Cheerio's for showing an interracial couple in one of their commercials? Supposedly it was "shoving multi-culturalism down (their) throats". A 45 second commercial. Showing couples that exist in this country. That threatened people. Isn't it weird what people find unsettling?....

2. You are a lesbian. This is GOOD. It's better than being straight because it is politically correct and expected, even, if for nothing else than as a reaction to those hated men who are, if nothing else, invasive. You're not like straight Bob, and this makes you a better person. It's best to avoid men. After all, they are bigger, and they smell. And they're often hairy. (Yuck!)



You're right. So much better. I mean, it isn't like people are actually targeted and murdered for being gay? Right?

Like Rebecca Wright. A lesbian that was attacked and murdered while hiking along the Appalachian Trail because a man witnessed her having lesbian relations with her partner.

Or Larry King. The eighth grader that was shot to death by a classmate because he wore dresses and asked the boy to be his valentine.

Or Nathaniel Salerno, who was called a "f*ggot" while being beat to death by a group of young men.

You're right - It's better to love someone with the possibility of physical violence, than to be straight.

come on.....no one is saying that or believes that. Any persecution is bad.

It is bad when Christians are killed because they are Christians.

It is bad when Jews are killed because they are Jews.

It is bad when Rwandans are killed because they are Rwandans.

It is bad when blacks are killed because they are blacks.

It is bad................you get my point......

It's easy to romanticise a story when recanting it. I can tell you that for me my life was sink or swim when I was cast out and there were many times I thought I was drowning.

Thing is though, when I think about how angry upset and all the other emotions I went through all those years ago, when I look back I feel compassion for Bob's clone too. He went through many phases of blaming over my sexuality, firstly it was me, then it was my school, then it was something I must have seen on TV, then it was himself and so on and so forth. He was struggling to swim too.

Sadly, the standard Bob does not come with emotional reckoning ability as standard because Bob has to keep up his manly appearance. So in many ways Bob had it as hard as me, because while I was cast out it meant that I was free to become the man I am today without having to justify myself to him or anyone I knew any more. Bob on the other hand had the awkardness of having to come to terms with one less son, explaining that to everyone who knows us and then telling them it's because he has a gay son and he threw him out. Not the sort of conversation Bob is comfortable with at all really.

Basically, it wasn't easy for any of us. But the message I was trying to get to all the Bobs out there is you are right, you may feel under attack. The world is evolving and we are now a pluralistic society. This means that Bob can still be right, but I can be too. There are many times I see Bob's clone struggling with this and it always makes me smirk a little. He will start on his 'In my day' or 'This is the way it has to be' rants and then he will look at me and self correct because he realises that it's not his day any more and it's not the way it has to be, it's one of many ways it can be.

The thing I loved about your reply is that it shows that Bob's friend at least has not forgotten his humanity. Some of the things you said made me smile, because they show your Bobness too.

Bob can be a great guy. The contributions he has made to this and many other countries around the world are great and it is little wonder that he is feeling a little sidelined in the world of today. The thing is, Bob is the man that everyone aspires to be like. His only downside is that he's got so used to being king of his castle that he feels threatened when everyone else wants to be seen as equal to him.

As a gay person I don't see myself as superior to Bob or anyone else - winning awards for the work I do just mean that I did what Bob's clone taught me to do - make sure that when you do a job you do it as if you were doing it for yourself. I'd trade my award for a life back on the farm any day.

Right...But it isn't better to be Christian than atheist, agnostic, Hindu, etc.

Same with being Jewish.

It isn't better to be Rwandan than American, Canadian, Ethiopian, etc.

It isn't better to be black than to be white.

Etc. You get my point.

I can't think of a time when a straight person has ever been physically assaulted whilst having heterosexual slurs thrown at them. If anyone believes that it is truly better to be LGBT vs. heterosexual simply because gay people are more accepted today than 50 years ago, that is delusional.

Poor Bob.
Bob is a victim of Rush Limbaugh and FOX.

Bob believes that the acceptance of 'others' or maybe more accurately, 'icky others' means rejection of himself. It's true racists, homophobes, sexists, religious bigots are going the way of the dodo... well not really, their world got bigger is all, they realized that gosh, not everyone thinks like me, and omg not all tv shows center on a white male misogynist with enough MAN power as to impregnate women... er white women through their TV screens, wow there's the gays on TV and the blacks, oh Jesus there's some mexicans... NO! not lesbian mexicans adopting white children.

I mean there's still plenty of strong white dominant male characters on tv shows, movies, public office, running businesses... even big ones!, plenty of white dudes banging gavels, wearing badges, swearing oaths, delivering news. But now there's also the icky others. Poor Bob. Trapped in his own perceived prison and needs a binky, needs the comfort of how good it was in the old days, when only white guys talked, were listened to or opinions mattered.

You know what's really funny about all this BS about being made to feel guilty if you're white? It bounces right off you unless...

Bob can kiss my white, straight ass.
