    Well, that was one of the more interesting things I've seen on the internet machine.

    Lol, I referenced this in a comment way back in... A review a month or so ago. I think my joke was that me and Hagan should have a baby, since I'm a gay guy, and I'm assuming she's a lesbian, and since lesbians don't exist, it would be the anti messiah because it had no mother, because lesbians dont exist.

    Batshit insane ftw.

    Just to clarify, I'm only saying this out of frustration. Anyways, if you're watching this and wondering if the video ever gets serious, it doesn't. It's just the same bit the whole time, with nothing important or insightful said. The title seemed serious enough...

    I for one,learned things.

    Yeah, since this site is all about being serious.

    (Sorry, I had to.)

    I'm sorry, but, you were expecting something important and insightful from Aleister D. Homelesssb'sterrd? XD

    can't wait for the time when people hate gays again. Not really one for all this equalness, and love and tolerate stuff. Can't we all just hate each other in peace without some ass hole group trying to force everyone together?

    Gay people don't HAVE history, since they don't reproduce. They live out their sexually depraved lives while they're young, then either grow so old that no one wants to fuck em, and die alone, or get AIDS. Take THAT, leftist pig, hahahahaha!

    -This is Bobbarker saying to spay and neuter your straight men. Because god knows they always try to outdo the gay men in being sexually depraved every year.


    I think they are cheating!

    I REALLY hope you're trolling. Plenty of gay people have children.Oscar Wilde for one.Sandy Toksvig,a gay comedienne & national institution in the UK,has 3 grown children who are all happy,healthy & studying law & medicine at university.She is just one of many gay people who have children,& to suggest they aren't REAL families with a history is insulting & mean-spirited. If you don't like gay people,don't watch videos about them. Gay people have existed in all of human history & aren't going away any time soon. If you can't be accepting,there is no need to be actively nasty & insulting.

    Okay, that last couple of comments have to be fucking with us.

    I'm pretty sure the last one is a legit troll.

    That's the problem, isn't it? You can never be too sure if it's someone with no talent for satire, a troll with a "hey, look at me" five-year old mentality, or a genuine idiot.

    And honestly, it's not worth the effort to find out.
  • ScattySafari

    Indeed.I kind of think it's a hollow victory when a person successfully trolls you into thinking they're homophobic. There ARE people who think EXACTLY like this. Westboro Baptist Church & Vladmir Putin,Nigerian & Ugandan politicians to name just a few. Some people genuinely feel that gay people should just die. A good troll has a subtle but definite key to tip you off that it is in fact a joke. Writing hate even in jest isn't particularly funny.

    Why is this on this site?

    Is there a problem with it?

    Dear Mattew G

    Because Hagan can, and she did it to piss you off and is enjoying every second of it XD

    p.s. She is TROLLING YOU! Mwhahahaahahaha!

    Of course lesbians didn't exist! They were all on Themyscira the whole time! Too bad no Greek God ever gave all the gay men their own hidden, immortality-granting island.
  • JethroQ

    Well they did, ever been to Myconos? We just got bored so much faster.

    Anyway, a good recap, and while it is about Europe, it manages not to be eurocentric, which is a plus. I was just a bit confused, because this was on blip ages ago.

    It's not frantic enough. If you wanna go for the jumpcut approach to video editing, don't do these transitions. They ruin the rythm, go directly to when you speak again without any transition. Just like The Bum's reviews. It maybe less classy but it flows much better.

    That's about all I have to say, except the new french government is going to allow gays to marry and adopt so yay for us, now gayness will spread everywhere (even in dark tight places) and everyone will eventually turn gay so there won't be any children to adopt anymore because people won't be able to reproduce so we're all doomed, or so I've heard. There's probably some evil empire at work behind this.

    Huh. Your English soldier voice is just so manly.

    I feel inadequate about my own sexe now.

    On the T word

    Because if I don't sya anything, I don't know who will, and someone has to say it.

    "Tranny" is a serious slur. I advice anyone who cares about not being an asshole to other people never to use it, especially about transgender individuals. For those who don't vare about not being an asshole to trans* people? Well, fuck you lot.

    The use here is kinda problematic. It is in character; Alistair is slightly insane, and doesn't relaly think that much about what he says. And the video does mention the trans and lesbian erasure in the usual Stonewall Riot narrative. Still, it should be noted that the word is very harmful, and some people will take deep offfence to it.

    I hate he word like I hate the N-word or the F-word. But its in Aleisters character to say shit like that, so I did it. As uncomfy as it made me.
  • jackprime  - bollocks
    I seriously cannot believe the bullshit i'v just read, 'its offensive to say tranny now?' Grow up, its short for transvestite and transsexual, its people like you that make other people feel racist for saying black, or homophobic for saying gay, honestly you need to get a life and stop being the p.c brigade. Thank you, goodnight, much love.

    Been a girl born in a boys body I really appreciate you´re concern. :3 But I think it was okay for Jerrica to use it in that context cuz she also used the d word, both obviously used ironically as a silly character.

    Is it just me or is Alistair drunk? Oh, no, wait, probably just madness.

  • pkingdom
    It took a lot of guts to post a video like this. This kind of thing is can easily attract a lot of nasty comments.

    I thought it was funny and interesting, though. Nice work! If people don't like it, they can just not watch it.
  • Sewblon  - Huh

    I always thought that lesbians were named after the island of Lesbos rather than the other way around.
  • trlkly
    avatar
    That was the joke, I think.
  • REBELComx
    avatar
    You are correct, my cthulhu-esque avatared friend. Which I always found odd seeing how the SCISSORS were invented nearly a thousand years before Sappho (from the isle of Lesbos) began writing her love poetry and letters to women.

    Unfortunately, with the Alistair accent and the fast talking that caused you to mumble a bit, I had trouble understanding the last half of this. The worst are the proper names, but enough other words were affected that I left confused.

    Ok...

    Great issue to talk about, but not sure if it should be covered in this matter.
  • Morzikei

    ...wait... were the Spartans just called non-Greeks? HOW? WHY? WHERE? IF?

    Also, why does LGBT stuff on TGWTG leave me confounded beyond repair? Though I guess if contributors started debating politics, economics and the like, I guess I'd find it odd as well

    and I think lesbians were known in the middle ages and beyond... doubt all those witches were grass collecting pagans
  • DiamandaHagan
    avatar
    Did I call them non-greeks? If I did it was because Aleister (the character) gets things wrong, its part of the humour. His main thing is reviewing plays and thinking shit like theres flying dentists in Andrew Lloyd Webbers Cats.

    As for this being like economic or politics, no its not. Those are things you have an interest in, or an expertese in. I AM lgbt.O ther people have done vids about what they are and this is no diff.

    Umm the spartans were greeks.

    I am pretty sure fire island has not sunken into the sea.

    As far as oscar wilde wasn't it that they knew he was gay, but couldn't prove it and without proof could not prosecute?
  • Kev N.
    avatar
    Oscar Wilde was most definitely prosecuted and incarcerated over his sexuality. Did you not at least watch the whole of that Steven Fry movie? Or did you just find his performance so compelling that you were convinced he was let off?
  • Great_Old_One
    avatar
    was that in response to my post?

    I am well aware that Oscar Wilde was prosecuted, convicted and imprisoned for being gay.

    What I meant was that even though many people thought he was gay without proof they could not prosecute him for sodomy. However, his downfall was when he brought libel charges against the Marquess of Queensberry. Which as you know the court found that the Maquess had standing to make his statements and Wilde could be prosecuted for sodomy.

    This isn't typically a website for political ranting.
  • DiamandaHagan

    I can do political rants and that wasn't one.
  • cheshire

    It seems to me that Hagan regularly rants about the political problems, like people who keep trying to invade Haganstan.

    Pointing out the existance of a people isn't politics. It's just history.
  • Thessa

    Why would lgbt immediately imply politics? Does the heterosexual immediately imply politics too?
    This was about history, told in a funny way.
