SNT: GLAAD GOOD OR BAD for the community
From the Glaad blog,
"We congratulate Clay for making this decision and for setting an example for others and his family," says GLAAD President Neil G. Giuliano. "As we're seeing, more and more gay people, including celebrities, are living openly and honestly, and this has tremendous impact in terms of creating awareness, understanding and acceptance."
This is why I can't stand GLAAD; they will flip from any actor or actress who comes out after years of denial and bashing us. At times I wonder if Glaad does anything at all for our community. Example,
If a certain actor (Tom Cruise) was to come out tomorrow, after years and many lawsuits confirming that he wasn't gay. Glaad would welcome him with open arms. Glaad would bend over backwards to get him to host dinner and Galas for them. They would use this news to fatten their pocket books and membership and sponsorship.
Here is something else that bothers me:
"Glaad shapes the national media coverage of Grey's Anatomy cast member Isaiah Washington's repeated use of the "f word." After Washington publicly apologizes for his remarks, GLAAD partners with GLSEN to work with Washington on an ABC-produced public service announcement (PSA) about the power of words to demean a person. The PSA reaches millions of Grey's Anatomy viewers."
Now would anything been done or said if Washington would have said "I'm not your nigger". So which one was it Glaad or Glsen talk Washington in to rehab for saying the word FAGGOT.
