Is there anything funnier in this world than people flying off the handle because they misunderstood a joke? I think not!
The Illinois Review is a conservative blog that I was unfamiliar with until Defamer pointed out a recent entry entitled: “Shrek: A Strange Setting to Promote Transgenderism.”
The writer, Fran Eaton, says she’s reluctant to sound like an ogre herself by spoiling everyone’s fun with “Shrek the Third,” but “there was [an] issue raised in the movie that I’ve seen no one yet address.” Of course, the reason no one has yet addressed it is that it only exists in Fran’s imagination. The issue? Cross-dressing. Specifically:
It’s the awkward inclusion of a transvestite and the uselessness of the character himself (herself?) in the story that is troubling.
Right in the midst of a warm “traditional family” setting, the film writers place a man dressed as a woman in with Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Snow White (the good gals). The crossdressing character simply doesn’t make sense, except as a ploy to desensitize children and parents to transgenders.
Homosexual activists now are careful to not only use the term “LGBTs” as a unit, they are more boldly now declaring lesbians-gays-bisexuals-transgenders as a unit pushing together as one for civil rights. Those confused about their sexual roles are pushing for equal rights to be free to publicly demonstrate their odd sexual behavior. For transgenders, appearing to be a different sex in public is their particular turn on. We need to understand that acceptance of this sexual behavior is just another step moving our world toward sexual chaos.
If you’ve seen the “Shrek” movies, you’re probably thinking: What the hell is this crazy person ranting about? Turns out she’s talking about Cinderella’s ugly stepsister, the woman with Larry King’s voice that hangs out with the princesses in “Shrek the Third.” Is this character a transvestite? No. This character is a woman who has an ugly face and a mannish voice. That’s the joke: She’s SO UGLY, she even sounds like Larry King.
Apparently, Fran thought that since the character has a man’s voice, the character is therefore a man — a man who is dressed up like a woman, has a woman’s body, and in every other way behaves like a woman. Fran missed the point of the joke! And the wrong impression she got made her concerned about the welfare of America’s children! And then it made her say comically ignorant things! Can you see why I think Fran is hilarious?! Hooray for people seeing agendas where they don’t exist! More of this! More of this, please!
