James Seabolt, recent Facebook comment,

Jamie Seabolt Why does the fags of West Virginia insist on being so third-world, backword, TRASHY!?!
about me & why I’d like to be mr gay.com 2008
You could call me ambitious or someone with a flame lit under him, but I have always loved to help others. As a teen, I won grants to improve my West Virginia high school and logged the most community service hours in WV schools history. In my early 20s, I started two gay newspapers to fill much-needed gaps and Gay.com gave me a top five spot in their first "Entrepreneur of the Year" contest. Since then, I left gay media to expand my horizons as a positive gay male in corporate and federal government work. Now, I have moved into the Bible belt to Myrtle Beach where organizers fought for gay pride for over a decade against a narrow-minded city government. Here, I have continued my involvement with nonprofits and revived my gay media skills with a fresh-faced gay magazine. I am proud of our Southern gay culture, and with a minimum 5% of profits donated to gay charities, I work to bring equality and pride to gay life, which can successfully incorporate with our communities both large and small without sacrificing identity. With over 1,000 new people a week joining my new media venture, my initiative is infectious, inspiring all generations of LGBTIQ Carolinians to do the same.
he also a works/writes for a gay news group,
Stereotypd business and artistic director Porscha Yount, OnQ’s Jamie Seabolt and Stereotypd editor Lin Orndorf distributed a press release announcing the merger. In it, Seabolt is identified as the Asheville paper’s new publisher and Stereotypd is identified as “part of the OnQ Network.” A few days later, the new OnQ team announced a merger with the Charleston, S.C.-based Drag Magazine.
So will the gay community demand a apology from him for that comment???? or is a matter of free speech..Wow what a change, it would seem those in West Va has gone from being second class to third worlders, what is next..
Update, I wonder what Glaad has to say on this matter..
