Some people may remember awhile back when Bil told us that transsexual and transgender are the same thing, declaring imperiously that it was merely a matter of semantics. Well it seems he doesn’t like it when someone else does the same thing to him. He whines here about one of his “allies” using the wrong language to describe his group:
After a co-host explains why the LGBT community doesn’t use “homosexual” to refer to itself, Uygur goes on an incredibly arrogant rant about how he’s “drawing a line in the sand” and refuses to say “gay,” “lesbian,” or even “LGBT.”
The sheer amount of privilege Uygur demonstrates so aptly is overwhelming. Not only does he refuse to refer to our community by the name we prefer, he sets himself up as the arbiter of what is or isn’t acceptable to gays and lesbians…
What’s good for the goose, Bil.
