Yes, Alec Baldwin Is A Homophobic Bigot

Alec Baldwin is a homophobic bigot. But unlike other homophobic bigots, Baldwin doesn’t believe his bigotry should be given force of law. — Dan Savage (@fakedansavage) November 14, 2013 Wow, Alec Baldwin shows his true colors yet again. How is he going to lie and excuse his anti-gay slurs this time? — Anderson Cooper (@andersoncooper) … Continue reading Yes, Alec Baldwin Is A Homophobic Bigot

Alec Baldwin Is A Homophobic Bigot

(The video below is NSFW!) We knew that already, of course. His instinctive, reflexive recourse to homophobic slurs is now well established. Let us review the previous evidence. This is what he said about a vile Daily Mail dirtbag who offended him: “George Stark, you lying little bitch. I am gonna fuck you up … … Continue reading Alec Baldwin Is A Homophobic Bigot

Press Charges Against Alec Baldwin

A reader quotes me: “It was one of the purest expressions of violent homophobia you can have.” No, it really wasn’t.  It was someone who was (rightfully) upset lashing out in a homophobic way.  That’s wholly different than someone beating a guy up for something like “looking like a fag”, for example, which is much more … Continue reading Press Charges Against Alec Baldwin

You Are Worthless, Alec Baldwin, Ctd

This is now getting hilarious: [T]he idea of me calling this guy a ‘queen’ and that being something that people thought is homophobic … a queen to me has a different meaning. It’s somebody who’s just above. It doesn’t have any necessarily sexual connotations. To me a queen… I know women that act queeny, I … Continue reading You Are Worthless, Alec Baldwin, Ctd

My “Scorn Of Feminism” Ctd

The in-tray keeps getting flooded with feedback on this subject: Here is my take, as a long-time reader, on the reason so many of my fellow Dishheads have written in to express disappointment with the coverage of feminist issues on the Dish. I read articles such as the recent expose of the culture of silence … Continue reading My “Scorn Of Feminism” Ctd

Dissents Of The Day

@ParkerMolloy @sullydish Couldn’t even respond to his own critics, Had to do so vis a vis a @fakedansavage story. And we’re ‘pathetic’. — Rachel Collier (@missrachel76) June 10, 2014 Collier may have missed our airing of dissents from transgender readers here. The Dish doesn’t duck from strong criticism. Another reader: I disagree with your view on language … Continue reading Dissents Of The Day

Dissents Of The Day

Among the scores of upset readers rattling the in-tray: I’m going to disagree with you, quite strongly, about the resignation of Brendan Eich. While I agree that he is certainly entitled to his point of view, and to take actions in support of that point of view, he is not entitled to face no consequences from those … Continue reading Dissents Of The Day

Don’t Judge A Baldwin By His Outburst? Ctd

TNC strikes back at Alwan’s understanding of what “bigot” means: The notion that bigot has “its origins in the general notion of close-mindedness” would be news to etymologists. The origins of the word ”bigot” are unknown, but the current theory holds that it is an import from Middle French denoting someone who was sanctimonious or hypocritically religious. Alwan is concerned about … Continue reading Don’t Judge A Baldwin By His Outburst? Ctd
