Repulsive Blogger From Gay Community Half-Apologizes for ‘Faggot’ Incident

Just a reminder why this person should not speak for gay people, their rights, nor their wants: “My intention – however misguided it may have been – was to stand up for myself and tell this belligerent man that I had enough of his badgering and was not going to continue to let him berate and intimidate me. I wanted to hurt him with the word I chose, not anyone else. Unfortunately, the one who got hurt was me and, subsequently, a lot of other people. I wish none of it had happened. I can’t take it back. I did what I thought was best at the moment to stand up for myself in a non-violent yet still assertive way. Clearly, I am not homophobic. Also, I am not nor have I ever claimed to be a spokesperson for the gay community. I am just speaking for myself, a gay man.”

GLAAD’s press release that demanded this person apologize and asked the media not to repeat his slur should have instead asked the media to remind viewers that, uh, we don’t want him either.
