"Razor Ramon HG (Hard Gay)"



This is a comedian who goes by the name "Razor Ramon HG", HG standing for "hard gay".

Kanako Otsuji, Osaka Prefectural Assemblywoman, and a lesbian, in a Japan Times interview recently responded:
[The way the media treats sexual minorities] makes me angry. This morning I saw [comedian] Razor Ramon for the first time. I never watch TV. I'd only heard about him. He's not homosexual. He just uses gayness for his act, to make people laugh. I'm afraid that people will get the idea that gay people are all like that, yelling and pumping their hips.

Not sure what she means. Can only homosexuals portray homosexual characters on TV? If this precedent goes into other areas, what will happen- the producers of the new movie based on "Memoirs of a Geisha" will be in serious trouble for using (gasp) Chinese actresses.

Hard Gay is tasteless. Also harmless. Anyone who would be influenced by it is obviously beyond redemption anyway.

I think she means that people of all race, kind and gender should be given due respect.
