Savage quickly retracted his comment and wrote on his blog that “It was a stupid, rude, thoughtless remark. I regret it and I retract it and I apologize to anyone watching at home.
Is Dan Savage really sorry or is this one-sided tolerance? Rather than educating and campaigning for open minds do we bully the bullies until “It Gets Better”? Homophobic comments made by public figures who then retract there remarks are still expected to put their words into action. Should we hold Savage to the same standard and expect him to work with straight republicans for tolerance on both sides?
