Yep. The FX network thought it would be cute, or funny, or something to put on TV an anti-gay bigot and let him spout all the tired old lies from decades ago – and THEN, not have anyone there to say “uh, those are all lies.” So, FX’s viewers were left with the message that gays abuse kids, are mentally ill, beat their partners, and more. Lovely. Maybe FX can get Heinz as a sponsor. More from Dan Savage, and GLAAD. Dan is right. This is outrageous. It’s bad enough for FX to let these bigots broadcast their tired old libel against gays, but then to not have someone there to point out that the “facts” are actually lies. Incredible.
