PFOX has responded to Ann Coulter’s recent use of the word “faggot” in a joke about Democrat presidential hopeful John Edwards. While they briefly acknowledge that “no one should be subjected to hateful name calling, either gay or ex-gay,” the main thrust of their comments draw attention away from Coulter and onto Edwards.
“Unlike Coulter, McEwan’s statement was not made in jest or for humorous purposes,” said Regina Griggs, executive director of PFOX while calling attention to the recent blogger scandal concerning Edwards.
It seems a simple, no strings attached admonishment for something so obviously hateful and indecent was too much to ask of PFOX. Their reaction is even more incredible considering how many of them must have children who have been hurt deeply by people who called them such names.
