Bill Maher Interviews Dan Savage

Adult language warning. This is Dan Savage, after all. ;-)

Dan talks about DOMA, sex, and what's really wrong with marriage.

"The problem with monogamy is not gay men, but all men". Yeah, that's starting to become clear to me too ;)

I'm marginally conversant with Dan, in the sense of, I know who he is and he's a champion of equal rights for LGBT. This is sort of an off-topic question, but do you have any insight as to why he seems to piss off so many feminists? I know I can't possibly have heard everything he's ever said so maybe there's some obvious incident or reference I just don't get ... but I've read more than once someone talking about why his views are harmful to women. Because unless he's said or done something specific, I would think his liberalism *extends* to feminism ...

(Or could they possibly just have been mixing him up with Michael Savage? ;-) )

I didn't know of anything. A quick Google search reveals that some think he is sexist, racist, "fattist," even transphobic. He lacks tact, and that is by design. Some things need to be blunt to be heard. He is white and affluent, and that is all some people need to hate him.

Others rush to his defense. Even with this clip where he is holding back, he aims to shock and offend. It's his M.O.

The people he pisses off most are self-righteous, fundamentalist Christians, and that scores points in my book!
