At The Watercooler: "American Idol"
So are Simon and Randy jerks making fun of "gendernauts" (people who are confused for members of the opposite sex) or just treating everyone the same -- with dismissive airs? They've been blasted by GLAAD and others for mocking kids -- mostly boys who look like girls. Are they taking advantage of these kids or being bigots? Keep in mind the first few shows always traffic in talented singers mixed in with weirdos. Should they consider these kids weirdos -- just like the brain-dead entrepreneur who could barely pronounce the word -- or keep them off camera if they're gonna mock their appearance. Weren't you confused abut the gender of some of them or is it wrong to make sport of that?
