The Register Takes Cheap, Homophobic Shot at Hilary Rosen

Posted by Ernest Miller

The Register goes for cheap, homophobic jokes aimed at Hilary Rosen (How Hilary Rosen learned to stop suing and hate Apple's iPod). Look, I like to Rosen-bash as much as the next copyfighter, and even take the cheap shot every once in awhile, but some things are just not cool:

A lesser man would deny the incredible attraction Hilary's shift conjures up within his soul. He would remind himself of Hilary's gay leanings and choose to admire her from afar. I am not a lesser man.

Ever since my dear wife Gertrude passed - God bless her soul - I've been searching for a spirit that could tame the unbridled yearnings which consume me. No woman has seemed up to the task until the new Hilary Rosen came along.

"The new iPod my girlfriend gave me is a trap," Rosen writes. "Yeah, it is great looking and I really love the baby blue leather case but when, oh when, will Steve Jobs let me buy music from somewhere other than the Apple iTunes store and put it on my iPod?"

It's hard to admit in front of you all, but, as I read this passage, I focused on one thing - my girlfriend, my girlfriend, my girlfriend, my girlfriend, my girlfriend, my girlfriend, my girlfriend, my girlfriend, my girlfriend, my girlfriend.

Was this signal - this cry - aimed directly at me? Wasn't this line from the new Hilary Rosen saying, "I have a girlfriend now, but I've proved that I can change"? Wasn't Hilary - pictured in all her glory on this fetish site - declaring her openness to the potential of heterosexual love?

My assistant wrote this week to the Huffington Post asking for an answer to these very questions. We've yet to receive a reply. So please, new Hilary, consider this an open letter to you. I request little more than a date or at the very least a sensual podcast. I can assure that I'm the man for the job.

This is supposed to be funny. It's not. It's pathetic and The Register ought to be ashamed for publishing it.

That was my take on it as well. There are so many other reasons to ream Mrs. Rosen for her hypocritical stance that making fun of her appearance and orientation doesn't even make sense. The very fact that she owns an iPod is bad enough, although perhaps if she had Diamond Rio it would be as hypocritical as possible.
