Crocker Knows What's Up

You can file this up under "Bottled Up Angst."

So here's this Chris Crocker guy again. You remember him? You know, the "Leave Britney Alone" guy? The guy that it was so funny to laugh at for his effeminacy and his undying support for Britney Spears.

Well, I've always been a fan of Chris Crocker and this goes waaaay before the whole Britney thing. About the time of the hair flip skit. I think he's funny, outrageous, off-the-wall silly, campy, talented but most of all, I find him courageous. Yeah that's right- he's courageous. This kid who goes by the alias Chris Crocker lives/lived in the South and unfortunately was too effeminate to hide himself. So instead of throwing himself into being shy and staying out of the mainstream he thrust himself out there with a "you don't like it- fuck you" attitude, "I'm still going to be funny," and flaunted his creativity and personality.

Then you have all these people mocking him for who he is- bashing him for being none other than his true self. And then you have people- gay men, bi men, married men (who suck dick) who sit and and like to say, "It's your drag queens and your leather men and the fags who ruin the pride events, who take down the rest of the community with them, who make me feel ashamed to live as a gay man!" Well, you know what? You fucking cowards- fuck you. We need you like a hole in the head. The real men of this community stand up for who they are and what they believe in while empowering others to be just as healthy and honest as they are. So you want to bash someone like Crocker for being out there, for being queeny? Fine. But ask yourself, what kind of balls do you have?

Testify, Crocker

Eric!

Wow--thanks for bringing this to light. I hadn't heard of him before. You New York boyz (You and JMG) rock with da newz, brah!

I'm going to go to Chris' YouTube site and send him some words of support.

He's a very articulate young man and he speaks the truth.

Thanks again, buddy!

If we were to attack Chris Crocker would we have to go through you first? Because that would be kind of appealing in a way.

I agree with you 100% here and disagree with you about 85% about "Lost"

Wasn't it the drag queens who stood up for the rest of us gays at Stonewall? At least Crocker has the guts to be himself and open about it.

I have a love/hate relationship with Crocker. I think he's lovely, admire him, and yet, his rant on how the media isn't presenting gay people as "multi-dimensional" rings hollow when he, one of our most verbal and visible speakers, is completely one-note. Switch it up, Chris. Switch it up and move to L.A. already.

I have to say, I completely agree. No one is free when others are oppressed and for me, offering Chris Crocker's gender/sexual identity expression anything other than acceptance would be homophobic, plain and simple. I admit, when I first saw one of Chris' videos (before the Spears video) I was confused but I was also intrigued. I applaud Chris for being openly his authentic self (and hot, too ;)
