GLAAD Wants An Apology

You knew this was coming. GLAAD (Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) is seeking an apology from Dana White and the UFC for his remarks about Loretta Hunt and her sources. I'm not sure why GLAAD feels the need to step in. I guess whenever anyone with name recognition says a word like "faggot" they jump at the chance to seem needed. The reality is Dana's usage had nothing to do with sexuality. Although groups like this would like you to believe words have a singular meaning, it's not even close to true.

In other news, I'd also like an apology from Dana for making me sit through an hour of British fighters talking on camera. My eyes still hurt from all the subtitles I had to read.

The thing is that faggot is used as comparison to the general idea that people have of gays, if you r gay you r a pussy, of course dana was pointing to the cowardness of the anonymous interviewed, but he should be smarter. After all, of course gays watch Ufc, why wouldn't them, most fights show lightly dress men rolling on the floor.

Hey words hurt. You can't just walk up to someone and call them names...unless they're Matt Hamill.
