Dan Savage (founder of the “It Gets Better” project) is a perfect example of the whole “LGBT pride so long as you’re only a white cisman and nothing else” community.
Here are a few of the things he’s done:
- He has called trans* people “trannies” and “shemales”, as well as told a parent they were selfish for not waiting until their child has graduated from high school to have their sex-change operation. [x]
- He has attacked a rape survivor over her relationship with her husband [x]
- Savage falsely labeled Washington State Attorney Rob Mckenna as transgender as a joke(?) [x]
- He has stated that “avoiding bi guys is a good rule of thumb for gay men looking for long-term relationships.” [x]
You can find more of his sexist, racist, transphobic, biphobic comments here.
Things everyone who hails Dan as a veritable Queer Jesus should look at.
