I heard this story all last night at work. I find it stupid. I mean I heard the speach, and heard the context in which he spoke. I understood where it came from, and it was meant as a joke from a tv show. It wasn't some form of gay bashing. I swear gay groups, and womens groups can just get uppity around such small stupid shit sometimes.
