Dan Savage: 'I would like to apologize for describing that walk out as a pansy-assed move'

Dan Savage has apologized ... sort of ... for remarks he made that led some students to walk out on a speech he gave April 13 at the JEA/NSPA Spring National Journalism Convention in Seattle.

From a Savage post Sunday at Stranger.com:

I would like to apologize for describing that walk out as a pansy-assed move. I wasn't calling the handful of students who left pansies (2800+ students, most of them Christian, stayed and listened), just the walk-out itself.

Savage is the same sick creep who licked the rims of clean coffee cups and doorknobs at the Gary Bauer campaign headquarters to get the campaign workers sick.

It is disgusting that gay blogs like this one revere Dan Savage as a gay icon and publicize his sick exploits. Why else would you be giving him any ink?

how the Obama administration ever put Savage in charge of anti-bullying says a lot about their judgement. Has anybody read about the past of Savage? Wishing all Republicans to die...and I think he assaulted and did some sick things to Gary Bauer...

The tolerant are really the intolerant, and anti-bullying becomes a slick way to push gay activism and propoganda into schools.
