Uncle Tom Award #2: So You Think You Can Dance
Once they had two men, Mitchell Kiber and Misha Belfer performing -- for the shock value, introduced by the song "It's a Man's World":
It's a man's world,
But you're nothing -- nothing at all -- without a woman.
When the male couple performed, Mr. Homophobe told them point blank that they shouldn't be dancing together, that they should "dance" with women: "Who knows, you might like it!"
Very easy to see what he really meant: "Don't be gay, try sex with women. Who knows, you might like it!"
Utterly disgusting. And it's not only still on the air, it's popular!
Nico is heterosexual, but growing up, he was often "accused" of being gay due to his interest in dance, so he suffered severe trauma.
How traumatic to be accused of something so horrible!
Rise above the taunts of the bullies who "accuse" you of being gay?
Hey, Nico, did you know there are kids in the world who are actually gay?
