DNC Homophobic E-mail Leaks “No Homo”
I’m not sure what to make of this…I’m talking about the tone of the article, not the actual leaks. I expect to see leaks like this. I expect anything with politics at this point. But the article sounds way to willing to laugh it all off, and I’m not quire sure I’m ready to do that yet. I think what people do online and what they put in private e-mails usually tells you who that person really is.
One e-mail says this…
I love you too. No homo.
Homo is a derogatory term. That’s a given. It’s a slur. It’s right up there with fag. And then there’s this…
Doug Hathaway is definitely gay. He swims for the gay and lesbian team in DC.
Again, it’s not so much the e-mails that bother me. But the tone of this article itself makes us all sound as if we’re blithering idiots.
Just to show you that I’m not the only one who questioned these e-mails I’m linking to another article below.
And one wondered about the use of the term “homo.” Isn’t it considered derogatory? What if someone in the Republican National Committee had used it? How about someone else?
