Must We Care What Camille Paglia Has to Say About Fighting for Equality?

Like certain Internet personas, bitter author and Salon scribe Camille Paglia is not someone you necessarily want as a figurehead of the gay community. In this whirlwind ramble of an interview with Xtra, Paglia pits herself as one of those gay people who don’t care so much about being treated equally. Paglia, of course, has the fortune of being white and relatively wealthy, so she has the luxury of not worrying too much about how to handle the legal parenting issues responsibilities with her (now-ex) partner Allison, or how to afford the health care for their daughter. All you silly fags complaining about how President Obama won’t give you your rights are, frankly, pissing Camille off. So could you stop it please? (via TR)
