42. When I objected to a person's bigoted statement about a certain republican
being so ugly and homophobic that he *must* be gay, I was immediately put down by multiple posters for being too sensitive and ridiculous.

Hey, I am white and straight and saw right through that crap as plain as day. Can't imagine how much more offensive it would be to the gay community. It was surprising that people defended the op so much--even if it was a slam against Santorum it was also a slam against the LGBT community in the same breath.

But then again, there are many things which happen here which cross that line regularly and are defended.
