We looked up to so many women on Saturday Night Live for so long, because as a woman who always wanted to be on SNL as a kid, there were no better examples of great comediennes than the likes of Gilda Radner, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Jan Hooks. One woman on SNL that we can’t say we look up to anymore is Victoria Jackson, whose blog is so full of animosity toward against gays, Muslims, President Obama and liberals that it’s scary. We’re all for opposing viewpoints, but Jackson crosses over into hate speech at certain points, in our opinion.
TheFABLife is an entertainment blog, so we won’t get into all the political aspects of Jackson’s post, we just find it amazing that someone who spent so many years in Hollywood has such a seething hatred of gays. Jackson writes “Everyone knows that two men on a wedding cake is a comedy skit, not an ‘alternate lifestyle’! There I said it! Ridiculous!” She later singles out Glee, writing “Did you see Glee this week? Sickening! And, besides shoving the gay thing down our throats, they made a mockery of Christians – again! I wonder what their agenda is? Hey, producers of Glee – what’s your agenda? One-way tolerance?” she wrote, referring to the gay kiss between Kurt and Blaine. Hey, one-way tolerance is better than zero-tolerance, we think, but still, it’s really never been a secret that Glee is a show that’s very pro-gay. If you’re that offended by gays, how have you watched it this long? We’re not even a fan of Glee, we’re just not a fan of blatant homophobia. /end rant
