Last week I took Apple to task for approving a PeekabooTranny app for their iPhone store. This week, a gay dating app was rejected for using the word "gay" in its description. Seriously. Look:
This has gone from one extreme to the other. When we wonder why the movement for LGBT equality gets stalled constantly, maybe it's because we've not done a good enough job of delineating and comparing a "don't ask don't tell" homophobic mentality and actual actively offensive/violent homophobic language or actions. Apple got smacked for using bad terminology and now there's been a knee-jerk reaction. Sound familiar?
