    on many or most issues who seem to have blind spots specifically on LGBT topics. Are we not allowed to discuss why that might be?

    Can we not ask if there is an elephant in the living room?

    •  no argument there. (0+ / 0-)

      But if you ask, and someone says, 'I've seen elephants, and I don't think that's an elephant -- I know it may look like one, but just take another look', well, maybe that person has a point.

      It's just as easy to take a look as it is to say someone's 'moronically overreacting'.  

      •  he's been confronted, his statement (6+ / 0-)

        that the offended are "confused" followed GLAAD reaching out to him. He still isn't sorry.

        He now has the opportunity to avail himself of the resources at GLAAD and other orgs to educate himself so he doesn't make any collosal errors like this in the future.

        Whether he enbraces the opportunity to learn and grow or not will be informative, I think. We'll see.
