Transcript HOUSTON VOICE / APRIL 7, 1995 25 ■; i ■//: ;■•; Phobic Pizza One of the nation's leading fast food chains has hired one of the nation's leading homophobes to serve as a company spokesbigot. Pizza Hut's new television campaign features none other than Rush Limbaugh. In the Pizza Hut commercial, Limbaugh praises both the pizza and his ego. Shown stuffing a pizza slice in his mouth, Limbaugh chats about his knack for "always being right." In a somewhat odd twist, Limbaugh has already used his own national TV show to promote the Pizza Hut commercial. He recently described, at length, ihe ad's content and told his viewers to be on the look-out for it. Needless to say, Limbaugh has also offered glowing praise for Pizza Hut, urging fans to praise the company for having the "good sense" to hire him. When he's not too busy pushing pizza, of course, Limbaugh is busy bashing lesbians and gays, women, an people of color. His radio and television broadcasts are filled with homophobic misinformation and downright ridicule. During one broadcast of his TV show, for example, Limbaugh derided a meeting of rural lesbians, which took place on a farm. The women. Limbaugh said, were "mating with pigs" in order to "perpetuate the species." Fortunately, "operators are standing by" at Pizza Hut's corporate offices, monitoring public response to the Limbaugh commercial. Reports are being filed on the basis of each telephone call.

Inquiring Minds Want To Know For all il*-* sensai ionalisl slea/c. the "National Enquirer" has a certain reputation for accuracy when it comes to gossipy enter ta inmeni news. In January, the popular tabloid reported that scriptwriters for "Roseanne" had put together an episode titled D.J.'s Coming Out," in which the Conner's teenage son tells Ins parents thai he is gay. The "Enquirer" quoted the "insider" who claimed the plot could unfold over several episodes, with the "Coming Out" storyline ready to air this May (a critical "ratings sweeps" period, when the popularity of TV shows are surveyed nationally). In a rumored scenario. D.J. (played by Michael Fishman) develops what the "Enquirer" described as "an unusually close friendship with a new boy at school." The script reportedly win deal with the harassment poor D.J. experiences, his father's "macho- efforts to teach him self-defense, and the young teen's eventual revelation that "I was fighting myself— fighting my feelings." The "Enquirer's source also reported that —while "Roseanne" producers are bracing for a homophobic backlash from the network (ABC)— the plot development is fully backed by Roseanne herself, who hopes "that D.J.'s coming out could help kids who are going through the same thing." It remains to be seen if these rumors have any basis in fact. Rest assured, however, that the widely-read "Enquirer" has already provoked letters from "concerned" homophobes. who prefer gay boys kill themselves rather than come out. Already overpopulated with heterosexual teens, prime-time television would surely benefit from "D.J.'s Coming Out." Send encouraging feedback to Roseanne, Co- Executive Producer.
