I smiled/laughed; you are correct. The news media will. not. stop. quoting antigay persons in news articles.<quoted text>
Why, it seems like only yesterday. Oh, actually, it was only yesterday!
I will. not. stop. saying, So next time there is any article about women's inequality, be sure to use quotes from misogynists. Next time there is any article about race relations, be sure to use quotes from groups like the KKK.
The news media quote literal ANTIGAY and gay-HATING sources. Yet they will not *dare*, wouldn't *dare* to do the same thing if the article was about, say, Martin Luther King's legacy.
And to this day, people vehemently argue that it's not the same thing. And that makes *zero* sense to me.
