Waukegan High School in Wisconsin voted a lesbian couple "Cutest Couple" for their yearbook this year. And they're definitely cute! So who could have a problem with this?
Bill "Everybody's got to relax on all this gay stuff" O'Reilly, that's who. He said this past Wednesday on his show:
I believe, based upon our investigation of this Weekaugan High School deal -- and the picture, and put up the picture again of these students -- that the kids voted this couple the cutest couple to tweak the adults, Doctor, to cause trouble, to make an issue of the yearbook.[...]
This is inappropriate. You do not define yourself in a high school yearbook in a sexual way.[...]
[T]hat's the old argument. Let's legalize drugs because it happens anyway. There's got to be boundaries.
And those are just my top three picks for Craziest Quotation from that segment. The whole crazy transcript and video are at Media Matters.
But does Bill have to hate on high school students? Picking on a couple of 17-year-olds is reprehensible (even though, unlike Don Imus picking on college students, the mainstream media isn't even going to notice this).
But if Bill O'Reilly can see such ugliness in the Cutest Couple, you've got to wonder how homophobes see the unCutest among us.
