I'd Rather Be Gay Than Fat

Being gay is certainly newsworthy these days, and not in a good way. In just the last ten minutes I have come across the following stories online:

* A gay teen who committed suicide and was an organ donor had his eyes rejected because of a law against it, the concern being passing along HIV virus in the surrounding tissue. His mother calls this  law "outrageous and archaic" and wants it changed.
* A gay performance artist plans to have sex with a different man every day for a year, calling it his "art."

* Those Westboro Baptist Church weirdos are planning to picket the funeral of Robin Williams, calling him a "fag pimp" for playing the role of a homosexual in "The Birdcage" and for cross-dressing in "Mrs. Doubtfire."

It's too bad that sexual orientation is seen as fodder for sensationalism, since homosexuality is as old as the hills--older, perhaps--and hurts nobody. Personally I think there should be news stories about fatties who do wrong or get in trouble by behaving badly, since obesity is much more of a crime against humanity.
