OMG, NPR’s Karen Grigsby Bates hates teh gaiz

You’re in your car, settling in the seat, trying not to bump anything over from the buzz you’ve gotten from your Triple Mocha Frappuccino and generally feeling like the world’s a good enough place for the day, especially since you’re listening to one of your favorite shows, Morning Edition on your local NPR news station.

And then this happens. And then you remember that you’re not a real person who deserves real, fair, fuck, even balanced reporting, even from a serious news organization like NPR because you’re a queer.

This is a slam dunk obvious winner for bad reporting of the day: everyone knows when you’re writing a story about how a minority is totally terrorizing the fuck out of a majority community, you should only talk to the majority and only about how the big bad minority is oppressing you.

This just in: my big gay face just ruined your straight marriage.
