    Sometimes it’s weird reading blogs by east coast bloggers when you’re not from there…

    It’s almost like they expect everyone in the country to know about the locals. What’s this guy do for a living? What is “Queen of Bounce”?

    Hey Mike, there is a thing called Google. I’m sure if Diplo – the white and okay looking hetero mentee of Big Freedia – were featured here you wouldn’t be such a smart mouth. Long Live FRREEEEDIA!!!!

    I understand the reason why stories about New York City get more attention on his blog. But, what bothers me is the assumption that everyone knows NYC geography.

    Unless you know that Herald Square is in NY City, you’d have to guess where this event happened. (And, the linked Towleroad article says “New Orleans Bounce queen Big Freedia”, so many people might assume this was in New Orleans.)

    If you don’t know Big Freedia by September 2013, one has to wonder what rock you’ve been hiding under for the past two or three years. Good grief, queens!

    Ted Cruz has a filibuster in Washington, while Big Freedia holds a twerking marathon in New York City.
    I’m trying to figure out which one is the most ludicrous.
    Americans are…….interesting……!!

    Feeeedia is the best!and for you trans phobic bigots, she is a he who does not identify as a she, she’s just awesome.If you can’t get behind her music at all, what is wrong with you? Why do you live like that?

    @ “This behavior is total degeneracy and should be disavowed by gay people.”

    So, are you auditioning for the Meryl Streep role in the Towleroad production of “Doubt”?

    @Bill: Expecting everyone who visits this site to know the lyrics of a 100+ year old song is silly. I don’t think that adding “in New York City” is too much to ask of the folks who post articles.

    To not know that Herald Square is in NYC is just ignorant. It’s amazing the way people get upset about their own ignorance. You certainly don’t need to be from the east coast to know what bounce is, or who Big Freedia is. Maybe you don’t pay attention to everything that has been going on in the world, but don’t get upset at a blog because you are ignorant.
