Shrek, You Girlie Man!

First Spongbob Squarepants and now Shrek.

This is just nutty. If you look hard enough you can find a pro-gay message anywhere you want.

I remember as a kid having a friend who's dad wouldn't let him watch M*A*S*H because Klinger wore a dress. It didn't matter to this father that Klinger donned an evening gown to get out of the army, or that the core message of the show was a celebration of peace. Politics was irrelevant. All that mattered to this father was that a man was wearing a woman's clothing.

I find these people astonishingly shallow. These folks who are looking for so-called pro-gay messages under every rock. If they weren't so ridiculous they'd be dangerous.

They are dangerous - in a very scary way. Hitler used very similar tactics in his persecutions of Jews in the 1930s, and the world thought that he was too ridiculous to be dangerous.
Too many people find a gas chamber solution to 'undesirables' covenienent. It's not ridiculous that they act this way - we're ridiculous for not fighting right now.
