Sandra Fluke Says Monica Crowley Insult Was 'Blatant Homophobia'
Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke responded to Fox News pundit Monica Crowley's tweet on Thursday, saying she was disturbed by the conservative commentator's "blatant homophobia."
“I’m not going to let this kind of thing get to me personally,” Fluke said during an appearance on MSNBC's "The Ed Show." “What really bothers me about it the blatant homophobia in the comment, and the idea that that is an acceptable thing to say publicly.”

2. Let's not be unclear about Monica's idiotic insult, now
Crowley caused a stir on Thursday when she responded to the news of Fluke getting engaged to her longtime boyfriend by tweeting, "To a man?"
During the MSNBC interview, Fluke said she was most disturbed that Crowley intended the tweet as an insulting joke.
“I don’t want an apology from anyone personally,” Fluke said. “I think it is possible she owes an apology to the LGBTQ community, because I am not offended to be asked whether or not I’m with a woman. It’s not offensive to me to be gay, but it was clearly meant as an insult.”
I've got to say, Ms. Fluke impresses the hell out of me every time she opens her mouth. I suppose we have morons like Limbaugh and Crowley to 'thank' for giving this very smart, very articulate young woman a place on the world stage. I realize they intended to put her down, but all they did was raise her up. Her opinions are shared by many, they're valued, and she expresses them brilliantly.
Love when that kind of stuff happens!
