    I have mixed feelings about Savage. He's done some great things - getting people to open up and talk about things, the it gets better project, ect. But he can be a real jerk about things too.

    Meh, I guess that's what they mean by package deal.

    The only thing I know about Dan Savage is the It Gets Better project which seems pretty all right. Why don't people like him?

    (Seriously I want to know icon_smile.gif

    There are too many times that he wipes out any "attaboys" with his "aw shit" mouth! Otherwise he wouldnt have these issues.

    perhaps you should mention that part of the reason is he implied transexuals are freaks

    I simply adore Dan Savage. I can't help the fact that he walks around like his shit don't stink and call it like he sees it without giving a shit. If the worst thing is he gets glittered from time to time, I'd laugh it off to and say... thanks for the shiny confetti. icon_razz.gif

    Crystal Fancy Glitter $2.00 Each package of glitter has a net weight of 1/2 ounce

    Damn, this stuff is more expensive than lox. They should start throwing lox at him.

    Zabar’s
    2245 Broadway, at 80th Street; 212-787-2000
    Cost: $24 per pound.
    Pros: Nice and pink, not oversalted, this nova from Nova Scotia—which Zabar’s cures and smokes itself—would be perfect to scramble with eggs, or as the base of a Benedict.
    Cons: A bit fishy, and lacking in nice salmon kick—and what about that slightly oily aftertaste? But for a basic bagel topping, this is it.
    Rating: Three stars

    Finally. So many people think he is the greatest thing since sliced bread. He does some good, and he also does some bad. My feelings are mixed, too.

    After reading a bit, it seems Dan did nothing but read out loud a question written by an audience member regarding her boyfriend's porn habits. The words were read verbatim.

    He went on to defend the trans community, supposedly.

    ...indebted to Dan for changing anti-gay, ultra conservative Rick Santorum's name into a household potty term. Thank you Dan!

    So, the heart of the matter is that some people consider "tranny" and "shemale" to be "slurs", but he uses the terms.
    (The stuff about "freaky" etc. sounds out of context [i.e. he used them 'in quotes' in the above case] based on the second hand of his response to the article.)

    Not sure I feel much outrage. I don't think many people consider "tranny" or "shemale" to be derogatory. At least not the latter. Not saying they aren't used that way, but it's not as clear cut as the intention or use of many slurs at the very least.

    I think his advice is often terrible, but in this instance I don't have a problem with what he said. He said "she-male porn" in response to the girls saying "she-male porn." Trans porn is often called she-male porn, and Dan didn't call a trans person a she-male, he referred to "she-male porn."

    Dan didn't say "Tranny's or she-males are freaky," Dan said "he's a very freaky boy."

    I think anyone who had a problem with what he said in this instance is an overly sensitive idiot.

    I don't like Dan Savage his advice is usually pretty black and white without depth. Usually it's something along the lines of "You/he are fucked up, better break up" icon_rolleyes.gif followed by a list of stupid relationship "rules". He's like the Dr. Laura of the gay community. Worthless junk advice with no depth or understanding but people eat it up, cause he's "honest" and "tells it like it is". Sorry relationships and people are far more complicated than that.

    calibro saidperhaps you should mention that part of the reason is he implied transexuals are freaks

    That's what you heard, it's not what he said. He said "freaky." I've described my own sexual tastes as "freaky;" it isn't Savage's fault that you're over-sensitive and jump to conclusions. Do you want to give Dan Savage a pre-approved list of words that couldn't possibly offend anyone? Please, be the world's language monitor.

    That being said, Savage is an asshole who should be punched in the face. If the trans community objects to the term "she-male," he should make an effort to say "transsexual porn," at least until calibro up there decides "transsexual" is offensive and gets a puff in his petticoat about it.

    I don't like how he passes judgement on people while giving them advice, but I like that he pulls no punches, and of course for all his work on the "It Gets Better" project.

    I've listened to every one of his podcasts. Actually, he is remarkably nonjudgmental. That's one of the reasons like him.

    jpBITCHva saidI love Dan Savage. He's god. And he's hot.


    He's even hotter in person. He can be an asshole who pulls no punches, but the world needs more assholes who pull no punches.
