CONCHITA’S STATEMENT WAS TOO MUCH EVEN FOR US
VIENNA, AUSTRIA – I would like to begin this post by saying that Austria was a well deserved winner, Conchita Wurst gave a stunning performance and the song was simply an amazing tune. When Conchita Wurst won she made a comment that really bothered me.
During her awarding on stage and later on at the press conference room, Conchita repeated the phrase: “we (gay) are unstoppable”. This is something that bothered even me!
What does unstoppable means? Is the LGBT community a troop force that is about to “conquer” the straight community? Doesn’t she talk about tolerance and acceptance while at the same time she disrespects every other social and sexual group with that phrase?
I can’t stop wondering? Is it a personal menace against straight people? again homophobic Russia? or just an explosion of emotions due to the victory?
