I Love Dan Savage

I Love Dan Savage July 11, 2011

I can’t do the post I wanted to do today, today, and since I’ve waited this long I just want to say I love Dan Savage. I think he makes a good point in this video, and I promise a real post tomorrow.

NSFW!

And I’d like to say I do love being in a religion where homophobia is a rarity. That simply rocks!

  • I also luz him. He’s smart, fiery, cute, uppity, cute, and well cute. He does what he loves, and that adds some zest and zeal as well.  :)

  • Yes, homophobia is a rarity in most of modern paganism; however, transphobia, biphobia and many other forms of prejudice are common. considering that Savage promotes some of those, he’s not so high on my list of positive role models.

  • ehh… I agree with HR Mitchell and would also like to add that one a recent episode of Dan Savage’s SavageLove podcast where he and another atheist use the premise of talking about atheism to play a call from a girlfriend who is worried that her boyfriend might be kinda cheating on her while going through his wiccan initiation where he will be kissed by I believe his High Priestess.. and Dan says he played that call specifically to show that its not just the christians that are bat-shit crazy… and then they go on bashing spree of religious people where I just turned off the podcast.

    I understand that Dan Savage is human but I think he needs to realize what his position of influence really is and to wield the power that that position gives him with a little more empathy, compassion, and sensitivity.
