Very interesting discussion on identity politics, internalized homophobia, and outing over at Blogcritics on Brian Flemming‘s posting, “Homosexuals Sullivan, Drudge silent on publisher’s call for genocide of gays,” which references a fascinating-as-always Mike Signorile NY Press piece. Couple of thoughts: Does it matter whether Matt Drudge is gay? Anyone who supports the genocide and/or the refusal to acknowledge legal equality of GLBT citizens (ala spiritual/legal genocide) is contemptible anyway. Anyone using his or her brain knows that the Rev. Sun Myung Moon is hateful and that his odious Washington Times is merely his means to maintain a place within the so-called mainstream press. The fact that so many right wingers praise the Times is proof that they are just as hateful. And self-loathing –fill in oppressed identity group here-? Old news, babe.
