Sensitive fairies - CHANNEL 9 commentators Eddie McGuire and Mick Molloy have come under fire over comments made about the men's ice skating. In their Winter Olympics wrap last night, the pair took aim at some of the costumes worn by the male competitors in the figure skating. As the pair discussed the men's figure skating, Molloy said: "They don't leave anything in the locker room these blokes do they", before a sniggering McGuire interjected, adding "they don't leave anything in the closet either do they."

Molloy was quick to jokily reprimand McGuire, warning him he could get into trouble. The network then cut to an image of a skater wearing a tuxedo-style costume, which Molloy described as something even singer Prince would not wear. The footage then showed a skater wearing a costume of overalls and a flannelette shirt with McGuire suggesting it was "a bit of broke back". Molloy agreed saying: "A bit of Brokeback Mountain exercises, you can't wear that."
Yes really, the fairies are most upset by all this. You'd think that they'd be happy now that they have their own gay day where all the assorted fairies can punce around, flash their asses, wave the fairy flag and generally carry on for themselves, but no, that's not enough, the sensitive babies can't even cop the odd joke. Oh and i'm expecting one of the angry fairies to come rushing in here to huff and poof at me any moment now.


  1. Actually most of the perfectly happy fairies I know couldn't care less about it or poor tragic Eddie, but it seems to have made your day, and hey, you got a comment. At least one person read your blog. Have a GREAT weekend.

  2. Is this any worse than the bull rider (rodeo) wearing pink sequined chaps? Both are enough to make you 'toss your cookies'

    Michael in Nelson (NZ)

  3. Must say i haven't see that Michael, then again, it sounds like that's a good thing.

    "Actually most of the perfectly happy fairies I know couldn't care less about it....."

    Sure, you keep telling yourself that.

    "At least one person read your blog."

    Might want to look at the blog stats, it's down the bottom, moron.

    You have a swell weekend too chunkee.

  4. Sounds like a Fawlty Towers skit.

    "Look, don't mention the faggots. I mentioned it once or twice but I think I got away with it."

    If there's anything more tedious than Mardi Gras it's how precious they all are.

  5. Men giving other men a bit of hard time is part of masculinity. Much of what masculinity is, is the separation from the feminine. Homosexuality in society is seen as effeminate even though there are many masculine gay guys, it's just that you couldn't identify them as gay precisely because of this.

    Just like saying a guy throws like a girl, it does it mean that girls are inferior (well, most are at throwing a ball compared to most men) or that gays are lesser people, it is just having a go at 'perceived' lack of masculinity.

    The point is, for a man being the recipient of this 'ridicule' is to not let is get to him, it's like a test. If he just brushes it off or has a witty comeback letting others know it doesn't bother him means he can do something seen as typically feminine and be respected for it as his core masculinity is secure.

    Now granted the ice skaters were not there to defend themselves, but the reaction to Eddie and Molloy's comments reflects the feminine values of nurturing and caring, avoiding stating anything perceived as offensive prevalent in modern society (political correctness).

    If girls and gay people take offense to men comparing other men to them, they gotta realise that women are not attracted to men who act effeminate and is an inherent part of what men do to keep other men in check.

  6. Now look here, MK, if you're going to make free with rump rangers' feelings, how are we to know what you might do next? I mean, if you're willing to slag off the poofters, it's but a short step to denigrating the boy lovers and beastie boppers, don't y'know? Remember the immortal words of Thomas de Quincey:

    "If once a man indulges himself in murder, very soon he comes to think little of robbing; and from robbing he comes next to drinking and Sabbath-breaking, and from that to incivility and procrastination. Once begun upon this downward path, you never know where you are to stop. Many a man has dated his ruin from some murder or other that perhaps he thought little of at the time."

    A word to wise, old thing!

  7. Oh very precious ar, let any one dare to utter anything about their madi gras like pay for it yourself fairies and it's like genocide or something.

    Nicely said Monad.

    boy lovers and beastie boppers eh, i wouldn't rule them out as off limits Francis, that's for sure.
