Hey Neil: What if You Were Gay?

Reported by Melanie - June 9, 2005

Neil Cavuto's officially sanctioned editorial (as opposed to the editorializing done throughout the show) today was titled Food for Thought. It was about Cavuto's reaction at seeing a couple of guys insult an overweight woman who was buying some food.

One sentence in particular stood out to me: "I guess picking on fat people is the last condoned prejudice in our society today."

Comment: Neil Cavuto came out from behind his studio desk yesterday when he interviewed President Bush at the White House. He is surprisingly heavy. (Here's video.) I imagine he empathized with the woman buying the food. What the men said to her was awful and I have no doubt she felt terrible.

But, no Neil, picking on fat people isn't the "last condoned prejudice in our society today." What this country, particularly your party is doing to gays and lesbians, with the full force of the government behind it, is the "last condoned prejudice in our society today." Imagine it Neil: how would you feel if states were legislating against fat people and the President didn't think they deserved full citizenship? The prejudice displayed by the idiots at the airport is nothing compared to the state sponsored prejudice against gays and lesbians running rampant in this country right now.
