    The word "rape" never came up in that. The method for getting said bi-curious/bisexual/lesbian daughter in bed went unspecified. GLAAD are faggots... again.

    I was going to say that have your daughter ***** straight was a pretty irresponsible thing to say, then I read what he actually said. "You should get one of your friends to screw your daughter straight." The writer of the story and GLAAD are fucking reprehensible. He didn't say the word **** at all. Sure what he said was stupid, but to imply that he said that she should be ***** straight is dishonest and a dangerously irresponsible way to write a story.

    Or stop letting these special interest groups run radio.

    Having said that, I'd probably fire a guy for saying that on terrestrial radio.

    I noticed I spelled daughter and irresponsible wrong, and once again the fucking Mozilla spellchecker screwed me again and changed daughter to Daugherty. God damn it.

    For saying "***** straight" or "screwed straight", and why?

    Everyone on that show should be suspended, simply because it's an awful show. Alan Cox, the afternoon guy, is way better.

    Definitely for the first. Maybe for the second. As long as it's a decision made by radio people and not Reverend Al or GLAAD, I wouldn't care if the guy was fired.

    Besides, it's a hack joke.

    Do you think you're going to change their minds? Their entire business model is based upon manufacturing outrage and getting people fired. One of our hosts even got in trouble and had to take a class run by GLAAD for something he said at his previous station. Of course our station is run by absentee owners, and management leaves as soon as their air shifts are over, so the guy now spends 4 hours a night bashing gays with impunity.

    I know what you mean, but if he can get away with it I think he should stay, even though the joke is foul and unfunny in its hackiness and ignorance towards homosexuality. Jokes that make assumptions that homosexuality is somehow equal or related to pedophilia or a choice are based on a false premise and bug the hell out of me. That said, if you're saiyng that to be ironic or purposely obnoxious, I might find it funny. .

    Either way, I think I'd rather ignore it then deal with firing someone, but then again I don't know anything about working in radio. It just seems its more work to fire a guy for saying something shitty when there's no backlash in ratings.

    Your email is well thought out and presents a good case. It went right into a spam folder. Making phone calls in support of the guy is what you can really do to help. Positive support for the personality is the best way to save him short of buying tons of ad spots.

    This is my take on this
    Both radio hosts and interest groups walk a thin line. Sometimes the radio hosts cross the line by doing or saying stupid stuff (killing a women with water, having sex in a church, calling a private person a slut), sometimes it's the interest groups that cross the line by being overly sensitive and targeting male oriented shows.

    In this case it's the latter.

    They're here. They're queer. Get used to them getting their way because another minority isn't as organized to stand up to them.

    If I actually unpack what this guy said, it's reprehensible to me on four different levels. If I was part of the audience, my reaction would have been not to laugh at it. And I can see why special interests would have something to say about it, though unless it was meant seriously nobody should care who isn't a listener.

    But advocacy groups would still get their news coverage without directly messing with the guy's job. They could use the time on the news to talk about the fact that what the guy was joking about on the air is actually being forced on gays in parts of the world to "cure" them. Send him a letter with their position that he can read from on the air if he chooses, which you know he will because it's in the news, but don't force an apology. Take the high road instead of alienating the audiences of various "offensive" radio shows from their cause.

    I listened. 100% meant in a humorous tone. They're knee-jerking like Sharpton did. Exact same fucking thing. No one in the comments section has listened to it. Vapid inbred retards, the lot of them.

    Yes. Both are abhorrent in the eyes of our one true Lord and Savior.
