Guilty pleasure television

So my DVR list has a pretty wide range of shows on my list. I have confessed to the guilty pleasures of “American Idol” and “So you think you can Dance” and the train wreck that is “Jersey Shore”. I also love standard popular shows like “LOST” and I just watched the season finale of “Heroes”. Mix in some other shows like “Survivorman” and “man vs wild” and “Dog the bounty hunter”. Throw in some expected shows like “mythbusters”, “conspiracy theory with Jesse Ventura”, and “the daily show”. So what show could I tell you that would make you say WTF?

RuPauls Drag Race!

That’s right, I said it. I watch a show about drag queens and think that it is FAB-U-LOUS! It is a world that I don’t know anything about and I find it fascinating! I really do. I have to say that these men…er..women…err…yeah…anyway, these people are genuine and truly comfortable with who they are and I respect that they stand up and aren’t afraid to be who they are. This may be a bit of a leap, but it is teh same way that I am not afraid to stand up and admit that I am a hacker.

I admit that their situation may be much harder due to social stigma, but hackers can relate at least o a small scale to having to hide who we are to certain people. There is a lesson here of tolerance and even though you may have laughed at the first part of this entry, I hope that you finish reading this post with a lesson. How can we expect other people to accept us for who we are if we don’t accept other people for who they are. Or to put it into words that Rupaul says on the show…

“How can you expect anyone to love you, if you can’t love yourself?”

That’s right, I quoted RuPaul in a blog post on a hacking site. That is what makes me the dawg.
