    The term "queen" has been frequently used as in "drama queen". No gay slur there sorry. The foot up in the ass and you'd prolly like it comment is not a gay slur either.

    Different meaning. Completely different. The term Queen of England is also used frequently. Doesn't mean that's a gay slur, either.

If one black man calls another black man "nigga," believe it or not, it's almost meant as a term of endearment. But if a white person, based on attitude, calls someone the "n" word, it's a racial slur - again, as it should be.
    "Queen" can be a descriptor, but even when used "within the family," it can be a slur too.

    Meanwhile, Baldwin's explanation is hilarious and really lame:

    "The idea of ... that being something that people thought is homophobic ... a queen to me has a different meaning. It's somebody who's just above," Baldwin said. He added that he would have moved out of New York long time ago if he were a homophobe.

    Baldwin explained further, "I know women that act queeny, I know men that are straight that act queeny, and I know gay men that act queeny. It doesn't have to be a definite sexual connotation, or a homophobic connotation. To me those are people who think the rules don't apply to them."

    Oh, uh-huh. Keep trying to spin it, Alex. The "he'd enjoy it too much" part makes his meaning clear.

    He is an entertainer, and not a very good one at that IMO. I've come to expect no less from him in light of his previous public actions.
    Remember his rant on his own daughter? What was that he called his 11-year-old child again? A rude thoughtless pig?

    I wonder if he will face the same consequences as Paula Deen?

    Baldwin is a crazy drunk who says stupid stuff. He isn't getting a pass any more than Mell Gibson did or anyone else.
