  •  I'd like Dan more if he would stop... (3+ / 0-)

    bashing Bisexual men as Non-existent.  And then Defending his points by saying "well, I am not Bi-phobic, but everything I said about them is true"

    His own words.

    Seriously, the guy's done some very good things, but this one point is really annoying to me personally.

    I don't blame Christians. I blame Stupid. Which sadly is a much more popular religion these days.

    •  He's irritated me from time to time too (3+ / 0-)

      but overall, I appreciate his voice where it matters.

    •  I just realized how that may have come off (4+ / 0-)

      I didn't mean to imply that bisexual issues don't matter. They most certainly do.

      I just read that entire link and I don't see him saying that bi men don't exist.  

      •  Why does this happen? (1+ / 0-)

        I know this is a bit off-topic, but it does seem that Mr Savage gets blamed for a lot of things he never said, i.e. that bi men don't exist.  Why does this happen?  I've seen it over and over with various topics and you go back to what he said and it simply isn't what was claimed.

        How does this happen so consistently?

      •  Yeah, I read it too- (1+ / 0-)

        Savage is saying a couple of things about bi men: that they should be honest with their straight partners, that adult bi men have a more solid understanding of their sexuality than teenagers who might be in an experimental phase- but nowhere in that piece does he express a belief that bi men don't exist.

        •  Respectfully... he blamed Bi folks for the closet. (1+ / 0-)

          That many of them are forced into because of the very attitude he's espousing.

          It's a non-apology apology for earlier columns telling people not to date bi-folks, etc.

          Honestly, I still like the guy, I just cringe whenever he mentions bisexuals, because I know that he's going to pull out the old "You're playing oppression olympics" canard and use other very right wing attitudes to defend himself.

          I don't blame Christians. I blame Stupid. Which sadly is a much more popular religion these days.
