    Irony: Santorum's ‘FRIENDS DON’T LET FRIENDS USE PINK BALLS’ moment

    TP is reporting that

    "Rick Santorum jokingly chastised a boy for using a pink bowling ball during a campaign stop in Wisconsin on Wednesday. According to Reuters reporter Sam Youngman, Santorum told a boy who reached for a pink bowling ball: “You’re not gonna use the pink ball. We’re not gonna let you do that. Not on camera,” adding, “Friends don’t let friends use pink balls.” The Human Rights Campaign has issued a statement criticizing the remarks as “another example of Rick Santorum intentionally making ignorant statements that have a real impact on LGBT people” and JoeMyGod points out that Santorum is no stranger to pink fashion."

    Uhuh. You mean THIS, Rick?



    Hey, Rick, nice PINK TIE ya got, there!!!!

    Now, I'm not saying that Rick secretly likes to diddle young guys when no one is looking, but you know, friends don't let friends wear pink. And we all know that pink is the color of the devil and will make you instantly gay. Uhuh.

    File under: SANTORUM, aka Frothy Mix.

    Not for anything, it is possible he was trying to be humorous. Could you imagine if he said "Friends don't let friends use blueballs"

    Could be, but it would be akin to a skorpion using humour on the 10th fox after he killed the first nine.....possible, but not probable...

    I see it as him wanting to keep those strict gender roles and stereotypes....pink is for girls and blue is for boys.

    I said he was trying to be humorous. There is also a question if he meant blue for boys vs pink for girls in and of itself without addressing a gay/lesbian issue.

    Someone with authority insisting on everyone maintaining their traditional gender roles is inherently related to the gay/lesbian issue. Remember, measurements of bullying in schools--for example--show that bullying occurs because of PERCEIVED sexual orientation, not actual orientation. That means lots of heterosexual boys and girls get bullied because they don't happen to fit strictly into gender stereotypes--their actual orientation is secondary.
