Letter to Leno

I found this through AMERICAblog, but it's been all over. (Seriously. Like, CNN-all over).

Anyway, one of the writers behind Avenue Q wrote a letter to Jay Leno in response to Leno's love for a good, ol' gay joke.

Check it out.

I like this because we know how to reply to gay bashing, or intolerance, or etc. But what about those gay jokes that you know on some level are really upsetting, but can't quite articulate? These are the jokes that fill prime time TV. After all, you don't want to be accused of not having a sense of humor.

Jeff Whitty articulates his problem with these jokes beautifully.

I hate Jay Leno. Wrote about it a while ago here if anyone's interested.
