Henry Rollins Offers Suggestions for a Revamped 'Duck Dynasty'

Henry Rollins

Once upon a time ago, A&E stood for "Arts & Entertainment" before a 2002 management change turned it into the Walmart of television stations, a comparison made apt by the ever-enduring popularity of its hit show Duck Dynasty. We've covered the show and its attendant controversy, particularly the never-ending stream of nonsense from patriarch Phil Robertson, ad nauseumLA Weekly's Henry Rollins has chosen to weigh in on the show with an acerbic editorial that makes an interesting proposition: turn the show into a gay porn.

DynastyOn the flip side of things, one of you supremely talented graphic artists should start a comic book series starring the Duck dudes as homosexual bears. Talk about crossover potential. The thing writes itself. At the next major gay pride event, there should be hard-bodied men in camo hot pants, ridiculous beards pasted to their chins, blowing through duck calls. Dick Dynasty is a gay porn series just waiting to happen.

It will be interesting to see if anyone actually follows through on these suggestions, and you can rest assured we'll report on any that we hear about.

  2. I would definitely oppose turning that TV program into gay porn. Having to have sex with those "duck" guys would be demeaning for the actual porn stars.

    Wisecracks aside, someone told me about seeing a picture of those "duck" people before they started their reality show, and they had kind of a prep-school look. Those scraggly beards and silly clothes are just part of the act.

  3. Ol' Hank knows his stuff. He was the subject of the same treatment with the Henry & Glenn Forever comic book where him and Glenn Danzig were lovers (Hall & Oates were their satanic neighbors). Henry took it well, Glenn not so much. Here's a YouTube link to an xmas special that's hilarious. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9n7WnPw8Swg

  5. Henry Rollins has always been a gay ally and equality in general. It'd be hard for him to take offense as being portrayed as gay as he sees nothing wrong with it.

  6. I don't think phils comments justify another gay pride parade where Men revert to the childish antics of bitchy queens. The show is funny. He never said he dislikes gays, but that he disagrees because of the Bible. Hes a 60 year old Man who isnt ever going to change no matter how much poo we fling at him. I never agreed with snookies behavior from jersey shore, but couldnt stop watching it either. Be a proud gay Man and remember God will never judge you for who you love, but for whom you hate

  7. Just think... people in other countries think these people represent America...

  8. Look around, these people do represent a fairly large portion of America. They brought out religious zealotry in friends of mine who I had never heard speak on these issues before. I think they felt comfortable speaking up when this blew up. It's sad and scary to think there's this much animus below the surface.

    I vote for Colby Keller to be in this.

  9. I suppose we can put ol’ Phil up on a cross now and stick a spear in him since he’s the new martyr for the Christian Right. Last year, it was the Chick-Fil-A Chicken being branded as the new saint of Christianity for standing up for all that is Holy Matrimony in the eyes of the Church. These folks want to be on the wrong side of history with their public criticism of homosexuality but cry fowl (pardon the pun) when their own bigotry is examined in a public light. Phil’s licking his fingers at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2012/08/holy-rollin-poultry-on-cross-chick-fil.html

  10. While Henry is an ally, I think his idea shows a bit of ingrained stereotyping.

    I think we'd be better served by showcasing gay men who actually resemble the Duck guys - not in porn or wearing hotpants - but those who live normal hillbilly type lifestyles.

    I don't think the answer is always 'comic sexual satire'... Sure, it's fun... But not always the best course of action.
