An update on the Buster in Vermont controversy I “ranted about”:http://www.globalspin.com/mt/archives/000480.html earlier: An “absolutely idiotic article”:http://www.gazettetimes.com/articles/2005/02/27/news/opinion/edit07.txt by Bill O’Reilly underscores the basic misconception involved. O’Reilly claims that the issue isn’t gay couples, it’s that “sex in general is an inappropriate topic for small children.”
And there you go. The first thing Bill O’Reilly thinks of when he sees two women working on a farm in Vermont is _sex_, of such a prurient nature that the mere hint of it would sear a child’s eyes for life. We might look at such a show and see a family working together to make maple syrup, but O’Reilly (and, by his deduction, the toddlers of America) see hot girl-on-girl action.
It’s all so clear now.
