    “I wonder if GOProud will be demanding an apology from Peter LaBarbera?”

    I know you are being facetious Will. The dumb asses at GOProud will demand an apology from Dan. You know I wonder if these idiots at GOProud are even gay? Having gay sex does not make you gay. It is how you behave as a social human being and these fools are not social human beings. I could fuck a woman but no way would I consider myself straight or even bisexual.

    I was at the event and a supporter of Dan Savage, as well as a member of the LBBT community. I do however feel the need to clarify what happened to Porno Pete as it has been reported inaccurately. As a witness to the action, I reluctantly tell the truth. After the exchange between Dan and Pete, Pete did try to return to his seat. The woman who sat behind us (and unfortunately next to Pete,picked up his stuff and threw it down into the aisle. Porno Pete made no aggressive or belligerent remark to this intolerant of intolerance woman. Security rushed over, the woman spat out that she did not want to sit by Pete. Porno Pete merely calmly whined that he wanted to return to his seat and was then hustled out. If anyone should have been tossed, it should have been the woman.

    I certainly do not want to defend this man, but in the name of true respect believe that what occurred was inappropriate and certainly does not preach tolerance. This man’s rhetoric is hateful, however he also deserves his right to free speech.

    Thanks for listening…
