Quote For The Day III

"And, of course, my dad had an issue with it in the beginning for altogether different reasons. But he had said, ''You can talk to this Rachel Maddow lady all you want, and you can talk to the gay blogs, I don't care, but stop talking to the Korean Christian conservative radio stations and newspapers. You know what this makes me look like.'' He's a Southern Baptist minister. My mom's like, ''You've just gone crazy.'' She says it all in Korean; it sounds a lot more violent in Korean. [Laughs.] There was a soldier in my unit who came up to me and said, ''Sir, you've been talking about gay shit on TV?''

And I was like, yeah, that's what I was talking about -- I was really wondering what he was going to say or what kind of commentary he was going to provide me as one of my soldiers. And he was like, ''That's awesome shit. You need to get glamour shots and make-up and maybe you should get a cosmetologist....'' I was like, you just stop right there because I have no idea what you're talking about. That's way too gay, how do you know all this stuff" - Daniel Choi, civil rights activist.
