Hey, Mr. Savage. I have a request for you. Can I use your house? I mean, just like, come over. Use the bathroom. Sleep in your bed. Throw some parties. Take a long shower and use up all the hot water at awkward moments. Play loud music whenever your neighbors are trying to sleep.

No?

Okay. No one can say I don't respect when someone tells me no, I can't use their house.

So, I'm going to be over in a couple of days. But in respect to your feelings, I will loudly announce that I am NOT using your house while I proceed to use your house.

That's how it works, right? I can use whatever I want as long as I explain that I'm not using it?

Because that's what I'm seeing here. Saying that you've stopped using a word in an article that repeatedly contains that word is the utter height of disingenuousness. You want to be patted on the back for being progressive and given a pass for your behavior--past, current, and future--while not actually changing anything.

I have a new definition of chutzpah: reminding bi folks why they should stay in the closet (specifically, because of biphobic assholes like Dan Savage who complain that being asked to not be a biphobic asshole is being told to pretend he doesn't know what he knows... AKA, the "I'm just telling it like it is!" defense) and then telling the same bi folks in the same column that they should come out of the closet for their own good.

Dan Savage, it will get better faster if you'd stop making things worse.

Dan Savage, maybe it gets better BUT YOU MAKE THINGS WORSE.
