What the Duck?.... Interesting Article GQ

When I woke up this morning, my favorite show was trending on Facebook. #DuckDynasty is what’s up! I love this show. I just had to read that GQ article! I was already set to be really offended, but I wasn’t. It was just Phil saying things that are very similar to what is said on the show. The quote itself is a classic:

“It seems like, to me, a vagina—as a man—would be more desirable than a man’s anus. That’s just me. I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical.”

I get it Phil… it’s not logical to you. This is what was said…. That’s not a “gay bashing” hate crime… it’s an opinion. Do you believe people have the right to voice their opinions? I do. As a blogger, how could I deviate from this thought?

Many of the shows’ fans are showing up en masse to demand that A&E lift the indefinite suspension it has placed on Phil. They want everyone to #BeardUp and boycott A&E. Did you know that Phil has over 1.8 million fans? Guess what—they don’t care that is REAL.

Someone can correct me if I am wrong, but isn’t this the same channel that shows people getting raped, murdered, and killed on CSI? How about that Rodeo Girls show? Nevermind, no one watches that. However, 11.8 million people watched the August 15 season 4 premiere and now we are at the gist of the situation. A&E cannot afford for Duck Dynasty fans to stay true to their battle cry.
