What is wrong with people today? Do we have to be derogative and obusive
just because there is something that we do not understand, or something
that we just dont like? I dont like my neighbours, that doesnt mean that
I try to insult them as harsh as possible.
The reason I am writing this is that im actually quite fed up with certain
peoples crusade FOR and AGAINST homosexuality. You like it? Well,
Good for you, that means that you are accepting a lot more then the
general population and has understood that it isnt the midsection in
a person that you fall in love with.
If you shun homosexuality and think its an abomination well, what
ever your motives may be, let me tell you. You, my dear reader,
are most likely a person either hidebound by religion, or, locked
in ways of thinking that doesnt accept the actions of your fellow
What caused this outburst then? Well, you know that I read
“Bruno the bandit” A webcomic that contains modern day technology
mixed in with medieval society, add a huge pinch of humor, a dollop
of sarcasm and a healthy spoonful of irony and you start to get something
resembling the comic.
I have been an avid reader for a few years now and the writer. Ian McDonald
managed to surprise and entertain me and many more people with his strips.
His latest arc, is called Tito The Thief. Where Bruno’s cousin comes paying
a call. It appears that Tito, is not the standard heterosexual bloke, but, I wont
spoil too much for you. What Ian does is poke a lot of fun at the stereotypes
and exaggerate these to extreme. I find it hilarious, and a newsflash, my
brother who, by some, would be labeled “a flaming homosexual” and
on top of that, -OPENLY- HIV positive, and frankly, he didn’t take offense
to the strip. He simply said “Well, playing with stereotypes like that actually
makes it amusing, since I am pretty sure i he doesnt think gay people are
So why did Ian get a hatemail?
My guess its either A: an extreme homophobe with own homosexual tendencies
that has to try to find faults in others instead of accepting themselves. Or B:
A homosexual who cant stand that someone makes fun, even if with extreme
sarcasm and irony, of the gay culture.
So, wich one are ya? Come out come out wherever you are.
