    Your last paragraph is exactly right.

    “the whiney and extremely effeminate Shapiro”

    Will, while your overall point is solid, I really don’t understand why you’d resort to describing Shapiro as “extremely effeminate.” What does that even mean? Is there something wrong with effeminacy that you’d choose to use it in a way clearly meant as pejorative (e.g., by pairing it with “whiney”)? What bearing does his alleged effeminacy have on his argument? Would it make his argument any less offensive if his bearing were — to your eye — less effeminate? Of course not. So it’s a word that adds nothing to the description, but that in contexts like this frequently comes off instead sounding misogynistic and/or as internalized homophobia.

      “Misogynistic and/or as internalized homophobia?” Me? Actually it was used to state that he might have his own issues with homosexuality that might be more internalized and undercover. Maybe the snark was a tad too over the top though. Thanks for the imput.
