Until Sunday night, everybody pegged Michelle Shocked as an '80s-era lesbian superhero. In less than a week she has become the female version of the Reverend Fred Phelps. That's the power of bullies who pretend to be bullied. They can change the public's perception of a known public figure almost overnight. The folk-rock singer, in an armageddon-arrives-the-day-after-tomorrow fashion, voiced her opposition to homosexual marriage in San Francisco Sunday night. Her career was over by Monday morning. Read my article @ the American Spectator on how you can learn a lot about a society by its taboos.
In society's current environment I supposed I'm surprised that a performing artist who likely caters to more left leaning audiences would make such a statement in public. But I applaud her for it as she is correct.
The fag lobby works through intimidation and its nice to know that some, even publicly exposed, have the guts to take a stand for what they (and, as said, the voters of Cal and everywhere else where there has been a choice up for a vote) think is right and commit to it.
I hadn't heard a word about her in 25 years.
