Dan Savage a hypocrite? Not even close…

Sunday, May 6, 2012
Dan Savage
The religious right wing clearly have no clue what bullying is really all about. A speaker, known for his “straight”, sometimes “salty”, talk, at a public forum, is not bullying you when he says your religious beliefs are bullshit. He doesn’t have you cornered against a locker, trapped behind the auto shop building, or head down in the commode in the bathroom stall. He isn’t threatening you with physical harm, not even the promised threat of “getting you later” after school. The right wing thinks all these kind of interactions are not bullying, especially if religiously motivated, but a speaker at high school assembly, who points out logical and factual inconsistencies in the way you behave is the bully and a hypocrite? Bullshit.

Dan Savage and the truth about homosexuality and the Bible

Monday, April 30, 2012
People get bullied because of who they are: how they look and act, what they say and do. ... The people who walked out during Dan’s talk were not separated from their peers by anyone. They were content to do that themselves. They were not frightened or cowed. They were offended. ... And they were pleased to show their intolerance of Dan’s words by protesting against them in the manner they did. Theirs was not an act born of suffering.
