Alec Baldwin calls me a “fundamentalist” in gay advocacy. A lot of gay activists must have just spluttered into their morning coffee. I just believe that explicitly homophobic slurs directed at actual human beings as a way to degrade them doesn’t have a “but-he’s-a-liberal” exception. It’s ugly and would not be tolerated if directed against any other minority group. MSNBC did the right thing. But it was their choice not mine.
