Fuck You Awards

The “Fuck you, you transphobic douchebag” Award

A proposal “gathering dust” on a Swedish Minister’s desk would require the sterilization of all transition transfolk.

The “Fuck you, you casually-racist piece of crap” Award

Mobs attacking Roma dwellings in Italy due to rumours a Roma was responsible for the abduction of a child? Your thoughts, Italian Government Minister? “Well, that’s what happens when gypsies steal babies.

The “Fuck you, you pathetically-insecure homophobic wankstain” Award

On Canadian Idol, a male judge tells a male contestant that said contestant’s performance “even turned me on”. Male contestant “doesn’t know how to take that”.

Video at Hoyden About Town, with transcript, but no commentary – it hardly needs it, but I need to get the cusswords out of my system before Torchwood:

IT MEANS HE WANTS TO TAKE YOU UP THE ASS, OBVIOUSLY. THERE IS NO OTHER POSSIBLE REASON WHY A MAN MIGHT COMPLIMENT ANOTHER MAN. IT’S OBVIOUSLY BECAUSE HE’S GAY, WHICH IS OBVIOUSLY A TERRIBLE THING. OH MY JESUS, HOW COULD ANY MALE POP STAR EVER FUCKING STAND BEING FOUND ATTRACTIVE BY OTHER MEN? THEN HE MIGHT SELL MORE ALBUMS OR SHIT. That whole, “Dude, I’m hetero, and that was hot”? NOT A COMPLIMENT, A SNEAKY, SNEAKY GAY COME-ON. OBVIOUSLY.

Take the fucking compliment, moron.

Finally,

The “Fuck you, you judgemental asshats who wouldn’t recognise your privilege if it smiled at you while denying you food” Award

To all the commenters over at frogblog‘s post about some awful, and at the very, tiniest, infinitesimally least, inappropriate behavior of a Work and Income employee who told a single mother to “fuck off” when she applied for a food grant.

I sincerely fucking hope that none of you ever face, for example, the loss of a partner, the collapse of a company, the “right-sizing” of a job, the unannounced increasing of a rent, unplanned pregnancy, or, oh let’s not forget, fucking rising costs of living and fuel (like that would ever happen, QoT, what are you on about?). Because when you do, you deserve nothing fucking less than for some sanctimonious assclown to say, “WELL YOU SHOULDN’T HAVE HAD A CHILD, YOU SHOULD GET A JOB, YOU SHOULD STOP RELYING ON NANNY STATE, YOU SHOULD MAGICALLY ALTER CIRCUMSTANCES TOTALLY OUTSIDE YOUR CONTROL AND NEVER EVER HAVE ANYTHING UNEXPECTED HAPPEN IN YOUR LIFE”.

In conclusion: fuck you all.

    I’m willing to take the Canadian at face value – that he genuinely doesn’t know how to take it. It seems more likely that he’s been so thoroughly heteronormatised that compliments from men about finding another attractive have been so off limits that he just stands there confused.

    [QoT: George, his answer to being asked if he’s hetero is “unquestionably”. He’s in pop music, an industry hardly bereft of male sex icons whose careers benefit by being found attractive. The compliment is paid after a lead in referring to Pride Week and the judge himself stating his own heterosexuality. His “confusion” would be the homophobic – however unconscious – insecurity I mentioned.]
