From Perez Hilton to Pink is the New, everyone is up in arms about this Eric La Salle poser. The "gay community" (I only quote it because not all gay people care about this bullshit), has taken it upon themselves not only to boycott all ABC shows and use of their affiliates merchandise, but they are petitioning to have the man fired. Now maybe I have to be gay and have a lot of free time on my hands to understand this who thing, but isn't it better that he learn from his mistakes and be forgiven?
You can't fire someone for being ignorant. John Mayer has the right idea.
I would like to offer my suggestion for a solution; produce an episode of Grey's Anatomy in which Mr. Washington's character, Dr. Burke comes out to his friends and colleagues as a gay man!!! What better way for an actor to get to the roots of his discrimination than by portraying the very the subject of his own ire for the remainder of his contract? That'll learn ya!
Then there will be an episode where patient keeps calling him fag or faggot, queen, etc. BAM problem solved right? Not really but at least then all these fags who wont let up about him saying fag will calm the fag down.
