Offensively bad, not offensively offensive

It’s a shame the gay indignation councils will receive credit for the cancellation of a clearly horrible sitcom. 

I doubt many, if any, transgendered people were that bothered by “Work It” — after all, it is a broad “comedy,” much like drag shows. (For those overly sensitive types, including the token straight guy who works for a local gay publication, I’m aware not all transgendered people are drag queens.)  

It’s the indignation councils who pose the greater threat. If we were disabled they’d demand people call us handicapped. 

I’d prefer not to be symbolized by a queen coiled up in fetal position screaming “shame” at passersby.
