News of the Day: Dr. Laura and the ‘N’ word

Dr. Laura Schlessinger acts miffed that blacks can use the ‘N’ word as much as they want, but she used it repeatedly on air and got crucified. I will respond to her outrage over what she sees as a double-standard somewhat obliquely by giving two examples:

Three women relax in a living room. They are supporting each other, all about to undergo gastric bypass surgery. One says to another, “Come on, fatty. If I can do it, you can do it.”

A woman orders a cheeseburger and fries at a fast food restaurant. The boy at the counter says, “Come on, fatty. Wouldn’t you rather have a salad?”

Two gay men relax in bed together. They kiss and one says to the other, “I love you, you old fag.” They pull the sheets over their heads, laughing.

The same two men walk outside together later that morning holding hands. Their neighbor says, “I hear San Francisco is a nice place to live. Why don’t you give it a try, fags?”

Seriously though, if she is a “Dr.” in any sense, she should understand this very well already. I mean, what I just wrote seems so elementary that I can’t believe I’m even writing it.

    Todd, your explanation is so basic that even someone like Dr. Laura should understand it, but I doubt she will get it even given these simple examples because she just doesn’t get it.
