|The supposedly homophobic tweets.|
And then, the internet exploded with Baldwin being called a homophobe. Really now - this again? I've proven the same point about Louis C.K, even though those were completely different circumstances. Here, I don't feel an ounce of homophobia coming from Baldwin. He was (rightfully) directing his anger at a moron who doesn't know math. A moron who picked on Baldwin's wife for a shit reason. Even more so, Stark (the moron) isn't gay as far as I've been able to dig up. And even if he is gay, he's a gay moron, so he had it coming.
The LGBT community is striving for equality. We have no problems calling out bigots and idiots all day long, but Lord Hamster forbid we call a gay person a queen. After all the progress we've made in the past years, it's about high time we let go of the whole war on homophobic slurs. Sure, it's not elegant and it's not something an educated person would do with absolutely no reasons whatsoever. But in this case, Stark deserved Baldwin's anger.
