My gayest look

In case you are out of the loop this week, there's a little protest going on on these internets to respond to Jay Leno's constant mockery of gay people on his show. It started years ago with this guy's story. The recent snippet of Jay's show that has instigated the "my gayest look" protest is there too. You can also see the people who have sent in their pictures to show support.

Gay jokes can be funny, but make sure the gays are laughing with you and not feeling frustrated and mocked. Would Jay ask someone to give their "blackest" look? No. There is comedy and there is bad taste. So for you Mr. Leno, here is my gayest look.

Well said, torn, in words and photo. It's a shame that someone as popular and (at times) as hip as Jay Leno finds humor in making fun of our community. Fuck Jay.

I wonder why it took 9 days to hear about this? And, I was never a fan anyway. And, I got a VERY GOOD DEAL!

It is a shame in this day and age that Gays can still be ridiculed on network TV. Fox does it all the time but I expect better from NBC.
In the category why do we need legal marriage in the USA? A couple of guys who live in Massachusetts were joined in a legal Union and went to file their taxes at H&R Block jointly. As soon as they mentioned the legal Union, the H&R Block people said sorry we don't recognize anything but a legal marriage. Of course no legal marriage is allowed, Catch 22. Ed

Hopefully Jay will take this as an opportunity to educate himself.

You tell him.

Nope, he wouldn't be able to get by with the "blackest" look, and shouldn't be able to get by with the "gayest" look.

Bad taste, indeed.

Love the photo, hon!

Great photo in a number of respects. Your "comment" is very precise.

Okay, so I know I'm supposed to be on board with everyone else and make some sort of appropriate comment here about joking at someone else's expense.....which I could do and agree with completely. But I'm just wishing that you could have flipped him off down a little bit lower so we could have seen more down South.

Jay Leno is a loud and proud Republican. Should any of this surprise anyone? I've always despised the guy...long live Letterman.

Nice photo.

I did, as you know, the same on my blog.

The sad part is, NBC will allow this to continue. He still beats Letterman (which baffles me) and scores in millions for the network. He has the power and NBC are wimps.

Like most republicans (I know, it's a broad brush at which I paint), making fun of gays is, and always should be, allowed. Yeah, we're people, but not humans.

Leno has never been funny, and I will be glad to see him give up the Tonight Show in the fall of 2009, when NBC moves Conan into the slot.

I'll be interested only because Conan will not be the same demographic that watches Leno -unless NBC's neuters him.

Anywho, Leno will continue to hate and make fun of us because he can. And with NBC doing nothing, the best we can do ourselves is to continue not to watch the Tonight Show and, maybe, boycott NBC shows.

Happy to inspire you my friend! You look so gay, it's incredible!

I've always found Jay Leno to be an unfunny a$$hole.

Maybe we should do a Biggest Chin Look or a Best Dumpy White Guy Look. I agree with everyone else, Leno is unfunny. His gay intern Ross is, I'd be curious to see what he has to say about all this. He has a blog at NBC, but dollars to donuts he's not blogging about this.

Heck, TW, that's hardly gay-looking at all!
