A little reflection on the days tweets

I read an update on twitter today, thought ‘ho hum’ and obviously filed it away until my brain was ready to process it.  Well I was ready to think about it when I was driving home from netball this evening.

Here’s the tweet

Beenie Man kicked off BDO line-up

Soooo…..a little background.

Dance Hall artist Beenie Man has been scratched form this years Big Day Out line-up because of his homophobic antagonistic lyrics.  Gay rights activists launched a FB campaign, got some publicity and the promoters pulled old Beenie Man.

What I find ironic or moronic about the tweet by djsevere is his indignation at ‘conservative’ New Zealand.  Ummmm, I could be wrong but in my experience it’s the homophobes of the world who are generally classed as the conservatives in ANY equation.  My hash tags would be #headdesk #fail @djsevere.

Discuss.

I live in rural Auckland, New Zealand. Two boys, one big, one not so big and 2 boy dogs belong to me and I them. I love Coca Cola in all of its sugar-less forms and I love you internet. I take way too many pictures of my kids and collect them all here. This is what I am doing when I should be cleaning or cooking or doing other 'useful' things.
