    Re: Alec Baldwin using gay slurs

    See, half assed apology and no crying.

    Alec Baldwin apologizes to NY gay group for tweets

    No excuses like he is a southern woman so it makes everything OK. No crying. No playing the victim card. Just an apology and a statement that his actions speak louder than his words. He will still take shots, and maybe he might be shuffled to the back for a bit, but he is not going to lose like paula. My thought is he wont be making daily videos with weeping and excuses over all of this also.

This is why most of us recognize when certain people are just pretending to be concerned about the feelings of gays and the insults towards them.
    Whatever. The word queen is a not a gay slur. The foot comment is just something that is used towards another straight person to suggest they are gay. It might very well be insensitive, and gays might be insulted, but the fact remains he did not use any gay slurs.

    yes, it is. You see, you do not get to decide whether or not something is deemed offensive or a slur. The reality is that even you understand that which is why you want to pretend it isn't a slur so you can use it as a slur.

    Exactly, and he certainly was not saying the person was gay as a compliment or in a positive way. he was implying insult with saying he would enjoy a foot up his ass because he was gay.

    Now you even admit it is insulting to gays, but yet are trying to claim it is not a slur. In your verbal gymnastics attempt that counts as landing on your head.

    Ok, since conservatives are going to continue to pretend to be concerned about the happiness of gays, let us go down that road. If this really does bug you there are some things you can do. You can do boycots of commercial companies who allow their spokespeople to use their celebrity status to slur gays, and make them aware you are not going to tolerate it. You can endorse laws which prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation. You can refrain from using negative representations of GLBT people as an insult. You might also endorse gay marriage to normalize the presence of gay couplings on society. Feel free to actually do something about the prejudice by saying you will not tolerate it in your party or from other people. Please show us how much you actually care with actions. Actions like Alec has actually made in the past and not because he is trying to cover up a dumbass thing he said. Please feel free to show us your real feelings by following through and prove me wrong that this is not just a case of feigned concern for homosexuals due to some manipulative goal.

    Wouldn't really call it some full on, homophobic rant.

    Suggesting that a straight man is gay is supposed to be insulting to that straight man since he is straight. If some random person outside of that takes offense it doesn't really matter. It has nothing at all to do with them.

    I am just telling you how it is. if you wish to keep on running with that offensive attitude feel free. I personally would prefer to only insult people I mean to, but if you are cool with collateral damage and being a jerk to those who you may not wish to be then have at it. In the end you are wrong, and only the people around you will know it.

    Don't listen to conversions that are none of your business and you will not find yourself with hurt feelings.

    It is true, this really was not a rant against homosexuals, and it is unfortunate that he used homosexuality as an insult as he did. Alec has also done things for the gay community in the past, and is not trying to offset his behavior by making some guilt ridden contribution after the fact. It was stupid and dumb and if he wants to insult someone in the future i think he will probably stick to generic insults. There are a few reasons why this is not killing him.
