The fact that I don’t want to dress like a woman doesn’t make me misogynist! Stop trying to tell me how I feel! I don’t feel like dressing like David Bowie either, and I love David Bowie! I certainly don’t think it would be degrading to dress like Donal Trump, but I don’t feel like that either. I think it would be degrading to dress like Lady Gaga - but not because she’s a woman.
In any case, if you investigate, I’m sure you’ll find the resistance  to cross-dressing in the general male population is more motivated by  homophobia than misogyny (not that homophobia is any better, but the  photo doesn’t take account of it).
People want to do things or don’t want to do things for all sorts of reasons. It’s not right to point at what someone and say “You feel like this because you’re not doing this.” Fuck off.

Those are song lyrics, but okay. There is a pretty intimate relationship between misogyny and homophobia. Much of the hatred directed at gay men is focused around the stereotypical idea that they’re effeminate, as well as disgust toward gay male sex because being the “receiver” is degrading.
Aside from which, the “you” in the song is society, not men who don’t want to dress in drag. The point is that if a man wants to appear “feminine” by wearing dresses, make-up, etc, it will be frowned upon. The United States has pretty rigid ideas on what behavior and style of dress are appropriate for the sexes. As a case in point, I read this disgusting article earlier today.

[California] State attorney general seeks resumption of gay marriages ›

Kamala Harris has asked that marriages resume for same sex couples while we await some final results from the Prop 8 fiasco. But the best part of this story is the following:

The president of the Family Research Council, a Washington-based advocacy group that opposes same-sex marriage, said Tuesday it suspected the government was colluding with lawyers in the Proposition 8 case.

Tony Perkins, the group’s president, pointed out that lawyers for the two California couples asked the 9th Circuit to lift its stay just a few hours after U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder announced the administration’s new position on the federal act.

Perkins asked the government to provide records of any contact the Justice Department might have had with the attorneys.

“Even the appearance of collusion between the Department of Justice and litigants is highly damaging to the rule of law in America,” Perkins wrote.

LOL, Tony Perkins!

Today, the Department of Justice filed a notice of appeal in the case of Gill v. Office of Personnel Management, the challenge brought by Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders (GLAD) to Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act…

As expected, the whitehouse files a last minute appeal to fiercely advocate for opposite-sex marriage.

AMERICAblog Gay: “‘Legal experts’ tell AP: Obama does not have to appeal DADT ruling.” Way to be a “fierce advocate,” Mr. President! — Ryking

Glenn Beck Professor David Barton Wants Feds To Regulate Being Gay ›

Barton suggested being gay should be regulated like other unhealthy vices such as alcohol or cigarettes.

“We have a Department of Health and Human Services; we have health care bills; we have health insurance and we’re trying to stop all unhealthy things so we’re going after transfats and we’re going after transparency in labeling to make sure we get all the healthy stuff in there.”

“So if I got to the Centers for Disease Control and I’m concerned about health, I find some interesting stats there and this should tell me something about health.”

“Homosexual/bi-sexual individuals are seven times more likely to contemplate or commit suicide. Oooh, that doesn’t sound very healthy.”

Barton added that gay people are more likely to contract HIV, Hepatitis B and C, and Syphilis.

“I mean, you go through all this stuff, sounds to me like that’s not very healthy,” he said, then asked, “Why don’t we regulate homosexuality?”

“And now here the CDC is saying ‘here’s a really unhealthy lifestyle’ and we’re saying ‘great, let’s promote it in schools and let’s protect it in law.”

I can’t even…

Archbishop Nienstedt refuses communion to gay activists at college mass ›

Twin Cities Archbishop John C. Nienstedt, leading a student mass at St. John’s Abbey recently, refused to give communion to members of a gay and lesbian college student group who were wearing rainbow buttons in a sign of solidarity.

The conflict between the archbishop and students from the Roman Catholic St. John’s University and the College of St. Benedict occurred during Sunday night mass in Collegeville, Minn., on Sept. 26.

The action came as Catholics throughout Minnesota have been sent hundreds of thousands of DVDs from the state’s bishops in support of a ban on gay marriage.

During the mass, members of PRiSM (People Representing the Sexual Minority) positioned themselves to be in the line for receiving communion from Nienstedt. Some of them reached out for the communion wafer but were denied it.

HATE.
