commented on Savage Love
You're absolutely right! and it was great that you published this blog.
Here's an excerpt from a NY Times article...which hits the nail on the head:
"...In a pair of blog postings last week, Dan Savage, a sex columnist based in Seattle, assigns the blame to negligent teachers and school administrators, bullying classmates and “hate groups that warp some young minds and torment others.”
“There are accomplices out there,” he wrote Saturday.
In an interview, Mr. Savage, who is gay, said he was particularly irate at religious leaders who used “antigay rhetoric.”
These are the people who are responsible for the hate, indifference, bullying, gross negligence that allows gays to be pushed to suicide.
The Federal Government (Justice Department) should be investigating each of these events as a denial of civil rights of the gay, lesbian, transgender persons.
HELLO??? JUSTICE DEPARTMENT???? WHERE ARE YOU???
YOU WERE ABLE TO INVESTIGATE THE LONG SERIES OF BLACK MURDERS AND DISCRIMINATION OVER THE YEARS.
WHAT HAPPENED TO THE RIGHTS OF GAYS WHO ARE BEING BULLIED AND EVEN MURDERED?
WHAT HAPPENED TO FEDERAL CIVIL RIGHTS AND YOUR RECENT NEW DIRECTIVE TO LOOK INTO GAY HATE CRIMES?
