Ding ding ding! We have a winner.

No, this has nothing to do with banning free speech.

You are comparing apples to oranges.

JT is actually making a reference against homophobia, but you aren't seeing that.

Hicks is huge in the South!
sad, but this could affect his sales
What was his motive?

he may not hate gay people

but he appears to be using bigotry agaist gays to harm Hicks

and that is disgusting!

That's right. There's no comparison to what he said and what Mel Gibson said. Mel just pleaded no contest to a drunk driving charge and got three years probation.

Actually, Timberlake just made the blanket accusation that Hicks' fans in Mississippi of being homophobes.

Are those types of generalizations okay?

I would be more inclined to think he was "using" the assumption that Mississippians are mostly hair-trigger homophobic rednecks to disparage the American Idol audience, and the "pressure" that trying to play to their sensibilities puts on contestants (talented or not)...since he'd just finished expressing the mixture of revulsion and fascination he feels towards the show.

and AI is the juggernaut that drives sales?


Quote:
Timberlake's second solo album, "FutureSex/LoveSounds," is set for release Sept. 12. "Sexyback," his first single from the CD, began playing on U.S. radio outlets last month.

"I wanted (the album) to look to a time when everything was really sexy," he says. "Maybe everybody was coked up, but who cares? It was hot. It was all about sex."
In the same conversation he talks up sex

of course he means man on woman - hot sex
not that man-man (taylor?) sex .

Most believe it is a given, that (many) Southerners are not Gay tolerant.

Hicks would lose sales in the South if he were gay
or even thought to be gay.

Who does not know this?

I take it you think this is an acceptable stereotype of Southerners.

I did write

"that (many) Southerners are not Gay tolerant."

and


"Hicks would lose sales in the South if he were gay
or even thought to be gay."


do you disagree with these statements?

I think if you polled Mississippi I think the majority would probably agree with JT, and I think they would proudly turn their backs until he "converted".
