It Gets Glitter

It seems Dan Savage has again been "glitter bombed" for what critics call his trans-phobic language. It's the second time this month the advice columnist and father of the It Gets Better campaign has been targeted by glitter activists.

From Bilerico:
Savage was in the middle of answering a question from a student who was wondering if her boyfriend was a freak because he watched porn featuring trans women. Savage suggested that her boyfriend was a freak, while freely using the terms "shemale" and "freaky tranny porn." That is when two individuals ran up and threw glitter on him yelling "Transphobe!" Someone from the MTV tech crew muttered "Oh, not again!" Savage laughed it off and said that being gay he loves glitter.
Many activists have raised concerns over an open conflict in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) coalition.

What do you think? Is Dan Savage to blame, or is this just a savage glitter attack?

It Gets Better Founder, Dan Savage

  1. How, please, did transsexual issues get hooked in with Gay and Lesbian ones? I still can't figure out how that happened. Speaking for my own transphobic self, I'd also like to know why it can't be undone.
