On Judith Warner and Sarah Palin
In which The Gay Recluse hates smug people of any political persuasion.
Aww, NYT “Domestic Disturbances” columnist Judith Warner is upset! She doesn’t understand why we have to spend so much money on pets, when we could just take them out in the backyard and shoot them when they get hurt or sick, like they used to do in the good old days. Srsly, that’s what she wrote, quoting some dipshit from “rural North Carolina.” She sums it up like this: “It seems to me that pet ownership has become – like so many other aspects of modern ‘parenthood’ – a realm in which the goalposts have been moved to greater and greater lengths of expense and absurdity.” Ha ha, we know some guys from rural North Carolina that would say the same thing about women, too, Judith! The comments are really sad, though, because in addition to all the scolds like Judith, you can tell she really hurt a lot of people’s feelings, sad losers like us who don’t even exist in her world because we’re not straight and married with children. But some people were very eloquent and deserve a column of their own! Like Jen, who writes: “A person who loves animals should not be an object of contempt,” and Ed: “Life is too short — and sometimes too difficult. A dog can make all the difference in the world. I know it has for me.”
As for Sarah Palin, she’s basically a self-described fucking Nazi evangelical Christian, so we cocksuckers don’t exist in her world either. (Or at least not as equals.)
There’s a lot of beauty in the world. Why do we get the sense that Judith Warner and Sarah Palin are equally incapable of seeing any of it? Part of us wants to know what they would say about Beatrice, and part of us already knows, which is why we hate them both.
