The Phallus Palace: With all the talk about blue state values and red state values, one would think that a blue state group like GLADD or a famous actor such as Ellen Degeneres would use their fame to expose the ignorance of homophobia. Or maybe a red state member of the Log Cabin Republicans or someone like Mary Cheney might expose the ignorance of homophobia. One would find it absurd that a Brit with a typical Orthodox Jewish upbringing and who is still a practicing Jew and who is not gay but pretends to be a Queen for laughs would be the one who brings bigotry against gays in the US to the forefront. But if one thinks about who is most effective at exposing homophobia in the US, one should think about and thank this guy. Sacha Baron Cohen, who on the Da Ali G Show plays Bruno, a Queen Austrian, is the most effective spokesperson for the gay community at illuminating the fact that gays still face prejustice and discrimination by some segments of American society. The Da Ali G Show is seen on HBO by millions of Americans who laugh at the ignorance of homophobes. Cohen should win some kind of award from GLADD and other groups that are supposed to bring gay discrimination to forefront.
