#!markdown I have long been a defender of gay rights and I never use words referring to gay people in a derogatory way. As I mentioned above, this was directed at me - not by me. I was talking about what happened rather than condoning it. In fact the opposite was the case. Would it change things if you learned that I am gay? You don't know one way or the other I imagine but while I am straight, I would never be offended by anyone suggesting I am not. I believe in marriage equality and that sexual orientation is not a choice. While I realize I have offended people because of the title of my piece, I was actually reporting on something that happened - and I certainly don't think it's okay to talk that way. All I can do at this point is reiterate that I'm sorry for any offense I have caused. I usually do something stupid every day so it's nice to have it out of way for today.
