What the fuck is wrong with you people?
This is my weekly comment on, What the fuck is wrong with you people? A comment on how society is pissing me off. There're a lot of them, so this will be a long running column. Please do not get this column confused with
"Who the fuck is you?", a weekly column on individuals who are pissing me off.

This week's Who the fuck is you goes to anyone.. pretty much most of you it seems.. who give even 2 seconds of thought about the Michael Jacko case.

What the hell is wrong with you people? Who the hell cares about some messed up has-been? You made this guy. You gave him all his money. You warped him, now you're enjoying his downfall. You people are sick.

Beside, you people who are watching this crap (yes, you media is responsible too for creating this craving for the idiot sheeps out there). There's also something else here right below the radar that most people aren't seeing.

The big deal with the whole Michael Jackson thing is terrible is not because what he did or didn't do, but WHO he did or did not do it with. Once again, our conscious or sub-conscious homophobia rears its ugly head by crucifing Michael Jackson while we let others (Mr. I believe I can fly) to be free (and have a top ten single) while openly admitting (and taping) to having sex with someone underage. The only difference here is that in the 2nd case, Mr. Ignition was caught with a girl. So instead of a molester, he's a stud that simply forgot that picking up girls at the roller rink is a bad idea.

So what's wrong with this picture? Both crimes are heinous and very similar, unacceptable behavior between adults and children. Yet our society's perception are so different in these cases. We throw everything we have at one while making the other a conquering hero.
