    Re: Chris Crocker is Causing Homophobia...

    I agree with Liam.

    I don't like when fellow Hispanics wear all that jewelry, make all that noise and do things that are embarassing to me because it does affect the image that some people have about us.

    But I also know that these people would find something, anything to fault us for who we are or for what we are.

    because of that I will never blame the person that is acting in a certain way, when in reality it is the people that are being prejudiced that should be blamed. In a way I am grateful for them, because they help me spot the haters easily...

    Re: Chris Crocker is Causing Homophobia...

    Every time I've seen clips of his Britney video on television, the newscasters and emcees are snickering and laughing at him... You can almost hear them saying, "There! There! You see? You see?"

    Paul Lynde and Charles Nelson Reilly (to name two performers) could get away with making fun of themselves, because it wasn't so overt. But Chris Crocker is so over the top, he's not doing the gay population any favors... I for one, wish he'd go back into whatever closet he crawled out of...

    Let's get away from making this something else it isn't. This is about people using stereotypes like him to make us look like sissy fags.
    I am most sure that there are better gays out there that are more news worthy and better role models.

    But answer this:

    Why is he getting so much attention?
    I don't see how he is making you look like anything - other than a reactionary. He's not making you look like a sissy fag - only YOU can do that. Don't blame him for being who he is - and don't expect him to change into something that you happen to find acceptable - he would never expect you to do that for him. And stop worrying about role models. He's a perfectly fine role model, IMO.

    He's getting attention because he is entertaining and people like him.

    Re: Chris Crocker is Causing Homophobia...

    The reason CC got any attention was because he did what he did at the right time. Namely this whole Britney Spears thing. Before that he was just another guy on YouTube. Because Britney's performance was SO bad that everyone was talking about it, and CC reacted in the manner that he did in a world that has YouTube and typing 'Britney Spears' would give you other kinds of links, he came up. So many of us in this board didn't who know CC was until that video had been posted.

    Thus proving that if people are basing their homophobia on CC it's been done in order to justify it, not because he initiated it. CC is no different than other comedians that have been that over the top.

    CC is not responsible for any homophobia. Homophobes will look for any excuse to target gays. And to say that he is propagating stereotypes, I think Lex said it best when he said that all we would have to do is cut and paste from this board in order to find a 'poster fag'. Just the fact that this board was created on the basis of porn then goes to prove that we gays are nothing more than sex obsessed perverts. So then all of us as a group and member of this board are doing nothing more than proving stereotypes about queers. This is not saying that this board is about porn only -I know many will start saying how that's not why they're here, blah, blah, blah- but nonetheless look up at the 'news' overtop this forum and learn all about the latest find from Illinois who in his short 8 month career has made 15 films. So that if for whatever reason right-wing homophobia media bumped into this forum, this forum could be used as a means to endorse further stereotypes and fears about fags as perverts. Look at some of the avatars people use in this site. Their dicks? And that doesn't speak volumes about stereotypes? Really. People who are homophobic can then turn around and use this board to justify gays as pederasts and they wouldn’t be so wrong would they? After all isn’t there thread after threads of how sexy twink straight guys are? People can use the words of this board to prove then that we gays are nothing more than a congregation of recruiters drooling over straight men like predators.

    The point is, just as we can say that this site doesn't do things like that, the same can be said of CC because CC is just another person whom people will utilize because he has made himself public.

    Re: Chris Crocker is Causing Homophobia...

    People ARE laughing AT him - and the rest of us, for that matter... He IS the stereotypical "fag." He's everything that so many boys and men struggling with their homosexuality are trying to get away from... What kid wants to come out to his parents and have them think, "Oh! You're like that sissy Chris Crocker...! Are you telling me that you want to wear makeup and wear sequined bras? (Gasp!)"

    Chris Crocker is not doing any of us any favors... He's only making these videos for the attention, but he's going "over the top" with each one, trying to outdo himself... Hopefully one day, people will grow tired of his brand of humor and see it for what it is, a narcissistic drag queen looking for lots of attention...

    His brand of humor is not opening doors for us... I perceive it as a disservice to us and a dishonor to people like Matthew Shephard, Paul Broussard, and Michael J. Sandy who have been victims of fatal gay bashings...

    I wonder why, if he's considered to be so hilarious and outspoken, why no one's invited him to join us here on JUB?

    Which reminds me of a comment by Mr. Humphreys on "Are You Being Served" when the store employees were interviewing applicants for a job. One of the applicants was obviously gay, a bit of a dandy, and while some of the other employees seemed to like him, Mr. Humphreys wadded up the man's application and threw it away. Mr. Lucas says, "Aren't you being a bit hasty?" Mr. Humphreys replied, 'What? You don't want people like THAT working here...!"

    But is he gay? If he's not, then he's guilty of some of the worst type of humor...

    Frankly, I view his videos as his own unique brand of hate speech...

    I have never in my life called another human being a "faggot," but in his case, I'd be willing to make an exception...

    And I'd dare him to take offense...

    If CC were the only image of gay men in our "culture mirrors" then I would probably take him more personally. But he isn't and I don't. CC isn't representing anyone but himself and I think he's a hoot!

    Git a grip people!

    So y'all are telling me, that out of you whole group of friends that you don't have ONE friend who acts like that?

    I do! It's an over exagerated act, which leaves all of us in stitches.

    Really, some of you need to get out more.

    Here's what Seth Green has to say about Chris Crocker:





    Lighten the hell up people!

    Saying that "Chris Crocker is Causing Homophobia," is like saying "Blacks Cause Racism."

    You touch me like you know me!

    Wow, I know a Shakespeare quote that fits perfectly here: "Thou protest too much!"

    In other words, you guys who think Chris Crocker causes homophobia are guilty of being homophobic. Don't be so cowardly. I remember gays who were dubbed radical drags because they flaunted their homosexuality in the faces of everyone -- gay or straight -- in a kind of fuck-you-bitch way. Many people called them heroes.

    If Crocker is gay, he's doing the same thing. Good for him!

    Nothing constructive to add except that I agree with all the people who believe that stereotypes and homophobia will be perpetuated no matter how one acts so there's no point in scapegoating him.

    Your analogy of Paul Lynde and Charles Nelson Reilly are perfect! Chris Crocker is over the top. If you have to be over the top to make yourself a good comedian, then you are lacking in talent that others have like Paul and Charles.

    I'll give you a perfect example:

    Bill Cosby can make people laugh until they're in stitches without a single curse word, but Eddie Murphy has to say "fuck" in every other sentence. I'm not saying Eddie isn't funny, but he doesn't have the natural talent Bill Cosby has. Neither does Chris Crocker.

    I realize many of you have extremely different opinions here, but that doesn't excuse the personal attacks and bashing I've seen so far.

    Why can't you guys agree to disagree without doing such a thing?!

    Personally, I don't find Chris Crocker funny or entertaining at all. I realize there are some gays that are as extreme as he appears to be, but you have to admit, his "act" does not put the gay persona in any kind of 'acceptable' category that the general population would find tolerable if that is indeed what we wish to see from the rest of society.

    Another brilliant comedian I just thought of was John Inman who played Mr. Humphries on Are You Being Served... He was campy and exhibited some of the stereotypes of effeminate men, but he wasn't over the top like Chris Crocker...

    Paul Lyne, Charles Nelson Reilly and John Inman are proof that carefully, expertly crafted comedy takes real talent...

    You aren't alone, BeardedWoof. I hadn't heard of him until I saw this thread. Then I went to YouTube and watched five of his clips.

    Folks, that's not over the top. I've met more people than I care to remember just like him in gay bars. I get away from them as fast as I can and flee to the other side of the room.

    I wish there were ignore features in gay bars.

    Never have seen this guy and hadn't heard of him before I read this thread.
    I guess if you don't like him you shouldn't watch him or by tickets to his shows.... Actually I don't know what the guy does, don't even know if he is a comedian that performs on stage.
    But if you don't like him turn off the TV or don't see his shows. Simple as that.

    I saw "Chris Crocker" and wondered what a National Football League defensive player has to do with homophobia.....

    Now I guess I'd better look for the YouTube stuff y'all are talking about.

    "Thirty-one* states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons. In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them. They should set up Pink Pistols task forces, sponsor shooting courses and help homosexuals get licensed to carry. And they should do it in a way that gets as much publicity as possible. "

    I wonder what that Chris Crocker


    thinks of this Chris Crocker?



    BTW, his Wikipedia entry says he's been receiving death threats... No kidding...?
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chris_C...t_celebrity%29

    Here's his YouTube page:
    http://www.youtube.com/user/itschriscrocker

    And here's his MySpace page:
    http://www.myspace.com/itschriscrocker which says "Chris Crocker is getting pregnant..."

    His sexual orientation is listed as gay... So he's not some straight dude playing it for laughs...?

In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them. They should set up Pink Pistols task forces, sponsor shooting courses and help homosexuals get licensed to carry. And they should do it in a way that gets as much publicity as possible. "

    Re: Chris Crocker is Causing Homophobia...

    I wish Chris Crocker the OTT caricature of an emotional effeminate gay stereotype would shut the fuck up.

    Saying he is like the Stonewall veterans is silly. If anything he perpetuates and reinforces the stereotype that the ignorant homophobic masses have of the gay community.

    Homophobes see effeminate men not as men but figures of hate and derision, and often a target of physical violence. They can't tolerate anything but a masculine ideal of what a man is about, and see all gays as effeminate stereotypes like the Crocker caricature. This bodes ill for people in their community who want to come out, because like the ignoramus who beat up a kid wearing a pink shirt recently, homophobia is out there, and Crocker is gonna fan their flames.

    He's not an asset to the gay community, just a negative liability.

    Pray for those young teens and men who are thinking of coming out in a straight environment. The homophobes will be those who think that gays are like Crocker, and that narrow outmoded notion is what will make these people unable to break out of their closets because they don't identify with the stereotype.

    Okay, I just watched a dozen or more of his videos. The one with him being interviewed on ABC or whatever was great, and the one where he's telling his grandma that he likes showing "some leg" is good, but most of it is just... lame.

    Enough of this thread....

    I agree with your comments... and I'd like to add a few points...

    How many times have we read here, "I didn't know any gays when I was growing up.." or "I'm the only gay person I know..."

    Well, get this - to A LOT of the straight population, homophobic or not, Chris Crocker is the only gay guy they know... and I suspect that he's also the only gay person a lot of gay kids know, too... The world is a big place, and not every city and town is New York, Philadelphia, Atlanta, or San Franscisco. There's a lot of small towns and burroughs scattered in-between...

    And to many of those gay kids (and adults), Chris Crocker is NOT an accurate representation as to what they feel inside.

    And somewhere, in the U.S. (or the world, for that matter), you can be sure there's some gay kid or even a straight effeminate mama's boy who's being tauted with name calling, "You Chris-Crocker...!"

    I agree with looseliam and Mikami (off-topic: Mikami Is that Mr. Bubbles in your avatar?) on this thing. It's stupid to blame homophobia on Cris Crocker even if he is straight.

    Re: Chris Crocker is Causing Homophobia...

    I think if anything, those accusing CC of causing homophobia are justifying that homophobia being practised. So what? Someone who is effeminate should be chastised. Well good to know we're endorsing sexism as well.

    This thread is nothing but catering to the sensitivities of heterosexist which in the end seems like CC has the gonads to stand up against. Yeah, perhaps he could use a little more reading in order to make his views all the more poignant, but nonetheless the kid is bright. Just listen to him argue why gays shouldn't be in the army, or what it takes to be 'straight acting' and his got a point.

    Then again in board full of gay men who salivate over heterosexual twins like vultures what is there to expect? Oh wait. Am I making an assumption out of a whole group of people over the basis of one or two? Well then I'm acting just like you. That what makes a bunch of gays here seem homophobic. And this, to think you all ragged on some guy because he thinks that hot people should only stick to hot people. So then gays should only be 'straight acting' for the sake of keeping face with the heteros? FUCK THEM. No fucking hetero norms is going to dictate what I can and cannot do as a HOMOSEXUAL MALE WHO TAKES IT UP THE ASS AND IS SEEN AS AN EFFEMINATE DEFORMINTY BY A DOMINANT POWER.

    And that's what CC and those at the Stonewall riots were all about. It wasn't no closet cases trying to keep face. Being homosexual and living with the risk of bashing is a reality we all have to deal with, but we should not be turning it against each other but rather the establihments that are leading to accept that to cause violence on another because of the way the act superficially is not cool.

    If anything CC has more balls than any football quaterback, and obviously enough more people on this board. So go drool over your heterosexual men all you like and blame CC because he's not into you.

    Re: Chris Crocker is Causing Homophobia...

    I took some time to day to investigate just who Chris Crocker was. I hadn't a clue until I saw this post earlier today.

    I watched the video 'Leave Britney Alone' on YouTube and must admit that I laughed a lot.

    He's made a lot more videos - which have spawned a lot of reactions and comments so it is no surprise that the media has picked up on a good story.

    We're all media savvy these days and just about anyone can become 'famous' for fifteen minutes. If Chris Crocker has any sense (and talent) then he will capitalise on the publicity and make a career out of it.

    The guy is only eighteen years old. He might cringe and regret every last word when he looks back on all this when he's thirty but hey, the guy is young and having fun.

    The internet provides each and every one of us with a voice (if we want it). We all have the freedom to express ourselves. The web is the best and easiest place where we can say what we like.

    Of course there are repercussions - as Chris Crocker has found out. There is always someone with a contrary view. And they too have every right to their say.

    Does Chris Crocker cause homophobia?
    No way - most people who think that way will not change their view.

    Let the guy have his fun. He just wanted to be noticed.
    And he got his wish.

    Awww, he's not hurtin nobody.

    I'll agree he's got issues, but then who doesn't?

    Chris is like a car accident; you know you shouldn't watch, but you can't help it.

    If Chris offends you, it's only because you're letting him. He just... does what he does. And, I might add, he's damn good at it.

    He's got people talking about him all over the internet, doesn't he?

    Agreed.

    You're either homophobic or you're not.

    I really doubt Chris would post here. He just doesn't seem the type.

    But I could be wrong as hell.

    I know I wouldn't after a thread like THIS.

    Well, I just watched some of his videos on YouTube.

    He IS entertaining. And he DID get a lot of attention.

    HE is what he is. The homophobes out there were already homophobes.

    Its the era of the Internet. Enjoy the ride.

    The only one of his videos that truly disturbed me was the one of his "shrine" to Britney. Where, at the end, he said something like (I'm not quoting because I don't remember exactly) "... and this is a death threat to anyone who disagrees with me," or whatever the hell he said. That's just crazy. You can't publicly threaten people who hate Britney Spears. You just can't, lol!

    I personally like Britney. I do, I have nothing against her and I think she's a fantastic performer. And I feel bad about her latest comeback attempt because I think she could have done much better.

    And what's with everybody saying she's fat??? She is NOT fat, for crying out loud.

    But whatever, I think she's had a rough life and got pretty messed up in the head. And that's what her kind of lifestyle can do to a person.

    But Chris needs to chill out just a tad with the death threats and the slander to anyone who doesn't like Britney. Because that's their prerogative. Just like it's his prerogative to LIKE her.

    I mean hey, dude, have your likes. But don't put down those who don't like the same things that you do.

    Oooooooooo!

    Well, he's a disturbed individual, Chris. He's probably lonely and has tried to fill that void with someone else's life.....Britney's. So that's sad.

    Yeah.

    On one hand I wanna hug 'im.

    On the other hand I wanna smack 'im.

    I even messaged him once, but I doubt he'll ever acknowledge me. Not to mention he probably receives about 10,000 messages a day, lol.

    I cannot explain that whole britney shrine thing, but even after seeing that, I think he's still fucking with every one on it.
    Well, that's very possible. I mean, who knows? He could be for real or this whole thing could be just a bunch of bullshit to gain popularity. I personally can't judge him because I don't know him. But yeah, the possibility is always there.

    Yeah, I've seen those. I'll tell ya the videos I'm personally getting sick of are the parodies mocking and making fun of Chris and his video. I mean, seriously, it's getting sooooo old it smells of rot.

    They really need to give it a rest. But then hey, they're just having fun.

    I think.
