U.S. men's figure skater Johnny Weir says he was 'frankly, pissed' upon learning that the two French-language commentators questioned his gender and made other jibes during his Olympic skating performance... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a6-MAmhGKsU

Some of the comments from persons watching Johnny's video statement are the usual red-necked ignorant
creeps who hang out at UTube.

Click "more info" in my post if you want to browse the crap. . . .from the crappers.

I, for one, am a major Weir fan. As for the scorn of rednecks, Liberace had a response for their kind: "I'm crying all the way to the bank!" Go, Johnny, go.

I wonder if rednecks complain about being called rednecks.

I doubt they even know they are "rednecks"! LOL

I come from an area of the US that is known for it's rednecks and have since moved to an area known for it's biggots. (Nice life!) Trust me, they don't have a clue as to how stupid they sound.

Yes, Stew, one of the unfortunate realities of life is that everything has an opposite... love and hate, long and short, joy and tragedy, and on and on it goes. Your comment about rednecks reminds me of what a bloke said one time... "forgive them Father for they know not what they do".
