File under "Duh" Part 2

So I logged into the Claymates Message Board today. To see what the jean wearing, Sarah Palin voting, soccer moms had to say about Clay's revelation.
While about 98% of the posts are supportive and congratulatory there are about 2% that are shocked to their core. I laughed so hard I nearly cried reading them this morning.
Please to enjoy the following:

"please tell me I'm not the only one who is shocked beyond belief! I feel numb I'm so upset. This can't be real!! How can you guys say this won't change anything? This changes EVERYTHING. I don't even know what to think right now."

"I wish him well and hope he gets some peace of mind now BUT I feel he lied to everyone-especially us fans. He should have just said so years ago. I feel like we were "used". I still love to hear him sing but I also feel he has now become like a Michael Jackson and it's a bit too weird! He isn't just the plain ordinary person with the values he first stood for.-but it's just my opinion."

Really? Michael Jackson? It's not like Clay bleached himself and started molesting children.

"I guess, I always thought, this day may come. And, I am not realyl surprised. Not that I ever realyl thought he was, but the admission, is just not a shock to me. And, I love him still, and support him. To me.. the confession, really doesn't fit. Despite all the rumors, and the accusation, and such.. I just never saw it in him, and with the confession, I still don't. But.. I accept Clay for whoever he is. Cause, I think he is an amazing man, and really his sexuality, still is none of my business. This doens't change his voice, or the humanitarian he is. That's who I fell in love with,. and that's who I still love.

I wish Clay all the prayers and love I can send.

And, that cover. He looks gorgeous. And, Parker is such a cute baby."

That is some hag devotion my friends.

"Okay, i'm going to come right off and say that when I saw it, I did cry. and I probably will if and when it is confirmed. Which will be tomorrow morning hopefully. I'll probably be late for my first class, because i'll be surfing the internet in the library. I knew in my heart for awhile that he was-...but my head was having nothing to do with it. I knew it might come eventually, but again my brain denyed it. I'm sure its a shock to all of us, weather we believe it or not. And for all those people who think he lied to all of us, I say whatever."

I was the same way. I had to reschedule my surgery appointment and everything.

"I don't understand how anyone can say that this changes nothing. It's as simple as this for me: Clay is NOT the person I thought he was. I can't look at him the same way again and this is killing me. I want SO bad to feel the same about him but right now I just can't. And the funny thing is I have NO problem with gay people. But it's just that he lied about it and I can't forgive him. "

LIAR! Why is it that homophobic assholes always include that "I have no problem with gay people" phrase in their I hate gays mantra? It's that he lied. Seriously? Why don't you go vote for John McCain you right wing fascist idiot!

"The Diane Sawyer interview bothered me too. I just pushed it out of my mind. His having Parker with Jaymes pretty much confirmed it for me, so I have slowly been backing away. Now this. I have been a fan from the very beginning and will always admire his voice and quirky personality, but I just can't do this anymore. And I will very much miss, probably as much as Clay, the wonderful and clever chats with those members of this board, and I really mean that. Stupid tears are gunking up my contact lenses"

I can no longer do what? Listen to his music? I sure hope she doesn't have any Queen or Elton John or n*sync or Janice Kapp Perry.

Look, I'm sorry that your boyfriends gay. You need to move on.

Here's another quote that was on MSN.COM from the Claymates message board...

"This is really shocking news as I had no idea he was gay," read a comment posted by "Sheridansq." "And now I have to deal with this. I am not sure what to say to people who know I was a fan. ... I didn't go to work today and am not answering the telephone."

Not going to work or answering the phone...did her mom die? Oh, no, Clay Aiken just finally came out...not it all makes sense...
