Shorter Andrew Sullivan, The Daily Bitch:
The Evolving Politics And Ethics Of The Closet
- I am completely opposed to outing anti-gay bigots who get caught being gay in airports. However, the sexual orientation of everyone else, including Elena Kagan, is fair game, particularly if there are a bunch of Google searches consisting of that person’s name and “gay,” “fag” or “lesbian.”
‘Shorter’ concept created by Daniel Davies and perfected by Elton Beard. We are aware of all Internet traditions.™
*Cf. Andy neglects to mention that his statement that he finds “coercive exposure of details of people’s private sex lives to be appalling and cruel” might be based on his own experience rather than on some purely objective policy concern.
