Snoop Dogg & Alex Jones Join The Caitlyn Jenner Haters
“Hear me out though. Joffrey had some good qualities…”
Since her Vanity Fair cover and the announcement that she will be receiving the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPYs, Caitlyn Jenner has seen a social media outcry usually reserved for everyday schmoes who don’t understand that their bosses care way more about shares sliding a point than standing up for their dipshit employee’s freedom of speech. In Jenner’s case, celebrities are now loudly voicing their disapproval of someone’s personal decision to publicly expose their lifelong hardship in the hopes of being released from repression. Not to mention the encouragement of others trapped in similar situations who don’t have fame and wealth as a shield against bigoted hate. Drake Bell stepped in some shit the other day, and now Snoop Dogg’s dipping his toe in the ignorance pool with this Instagram post:
Granted, he makes a great point about newsworthy stories like Akon’s African relief efforts going unnoticed, but that point probably could have been made without referring to a transgender woman as “a science project.” Then again, smoking a dump truck of weed for breakfast probably dulls your cultural sensitivity, so not that he gets a pass, but we’re dealing with a guy with single comma levels of brain cells. If only someone in his house would have popped in that Caillou DVD a little sooner, he’d probably still be staring blankly at the screen right now.
Meanwhile, Alex Jones has managed to confuse transgender people with “transabled” people — An actual, categorized mental illness in which people compulsively amputate their otherwise healthy bodies — which is, of course, all wrapped up in a government conspiracy aimed at lowering birthrates for the purpose of population control. Yep. Via Salon:
“The agenda behind all of this,” Jones continued, “Is to confuse society and break everything down and make the natural systems — the set default systems basically anathema.”
Which is part of his juice box theory from back in 2010 about how the plastic lining inside them makes you gay or something:
“The reason there’s so many gay people now is because it’s a chemical warfare operation! I have the government documents where they said they’re going to encourage homosexuality with chemicals so that people don’t have children. […]
Hey, let’s stop drinking out of estrogen-mimicking containers. And again, I even catch myself drinking out of these estrogen mimickers because it’s everywhere. I mean, take this [holds up juice box]. I don’t know, but I should check. This is probably lined with the type of plastic that has it. But I still grabbed this off the shelf this morning. Even though it says it’s organic, that’s not enough. In fact, let me — guys, give me a knife so I can tear into this. Let’s see if it’s lined with it. In fact, it’ll probably say it if it’s lined with it inside the plastic packaging. […]
After you’re done drinking your little juices, well, I mean, you’re ready to go out and have a baby. You’re ready to put makeup on. You’re ready to wear a short skirt. You’re ready to go, you know, put together a, you know, garden of roses or something. You’re ready to put lipstick on.”
I will say that I thought then-Bruce Jenner’s Diane Sawyer interview seemed to be comprehensive and well-meaning without straying into realm of sensationalism. That said, the Vogue cover, the KUWTK: About Bruce horseshit, and the subsequent reality show deal are all starting to leave a real Kardashianeque taste in my mouth. And as much as I hate swallowing butt-pee, I’m still able to admit I don’t for a second understand Caitlyn Jenner’s struggle, but I respect her decision to try to enjoy her life unshackled from her own mind. I guess what I’m saying is when a stoner whose claim to fame is beating a murder wrap, and a paranoid, delusional conspiracy theorist who thinks Kool-Aid will make you go gay-crazy and castrate yourself are your intellectual comrades, it might be time to reconsider your position.
