A VIDEO

This is an old tweet, from one of the presidential debates, but it is something that is still relevant. Dan Savage has been known for his ignorant comments about race, trans individuals, bisexuality, asexuality and everything else under the sun, but what is interesting about this particular tweet is that in his world it is okay to make sexist comments in the name of irony or sarcasm  And we, the follower, are idiots if we don’t get that what he is saying is sarcastic and not just another one of his nonsensical comments.

This is what makes Dan Savage dangerous: he gets the blessing of being an equality champion from the mainstream straight and gay media without ever being called out on his various modes of oppressive statements. Savage become a creditable source for the mainstream (in actuality he really only advocates for those individuals that share his characteristics) while everyone else who isn’t in the mainstream are left to figure out how they can get their message of oppression out to the world and perhaps also show the hypocrisy of Savage.
