Joy Reid’s Homophobic Commentary Revisited So We Never Ever Forget
MSNBC’s Joy Reid started to trend again this week and I thought it was important to remind people that she was once in the middle of a homophobic controversy. With so many hypocrites out there, and so little support for anything LGBTQ, I think we need to revisit certain topics every so often so no one ever forgets.
The homophobia happened in old blog posts and in Tweets. This is typical straight privilege.
Tweets have resurfaced from 2010, before she was well known, in which she questions conservative commentator Ann Coulter’s gender and calls Senator Lindsey Graham “Miss Lindsey”.
Here’s more. What bothers me is that there seems to be a double standard for anyone who makes homophobic comments. They always get away with it, as if nothing ever happened. Alec Baldwin got away with it, and so did Joy Reid. Every day I see people get away with it. The least we can do is remind people that it happened, so they never, ever forget.

“A wonderful story that I loved. The characters were well developed, and strong. Gus: A sweet young man. Doing something for all the wrong reasons. Craig: his boyfriend, he’ll go along with anything Gus say. Henry: Gus father a no nonsense man, who’s husband died last year. I enjoyed this story.”
