Enough Already!

Is anyone else super annoyed with Ryan Seacrest's not-so-subtle homophobia on American Idol? I mean, is it really necessary for him to constantly joke that Simon "likes" male contestants with the obvious intent to insult him by insinuating that he's gay? An insult that only works in a messed up world where being gay is considered (by douchebags like Seacrest) laughable? The whole thing is just so fucking adolescent.

Huh. I noticed the gay jokes but didn't think of them as homophobic. Which means that I'm completely oblivious to gayhate. Yay!

I am in no way condoning Seacrest's homophobia, but I think it comes from the fact that EVERYONE on every celeb gossip site says HE'S gay. He's overcompensating.
