Dan Savage Calls Jo Becker’s Book Forcing The Spring “Bullshit” and “Appalling”

Dan Savage

During an interview with HuffPost Live’s Josh Zepps about his upcoming Hump! Tour, an amateur porn film festival, Dan Savage went off on Jo Becker’s (and who are we kidding Chad Griffin and HRC’s) new book “Forcing The Spring: Inside the Fight for Marriage Equality,”

“The book has been universally condemned by people all across the ideological spectrum in the gay community.

It’s really kind of a case of sort of theft, a theft of credit. The book is a lie, a lie to its readers, it’s a misrepresentation, and the treatment of [marriage equality activists] … is appalling  This is a bullshit Washington history, and it will not stand, and the community — the gay community — is united in opposition to it.”

That’s what I like about Dan Savage. Always so soft spoken.
