    As far as confirmation bias, I guess you may be on to something since my bias is that assholes exist and this guy confirms it.
    You appear to be dismissing the point that Baldwin is getting a pass because he's on the left.

    Are you serious? In what universe is claiming someone go do a sexual act the same as using a racial epithet? Or is it OK for only blacks to use this as well? Seriously, the levels of stupid you go through sometimes is mindboggling.

    Getting a pass? Sounds like he's getting grief to me. What do you have in mind?

    I don't know what you just accused me of, but I'm pretty sure I didn't do it at usual.

    You can say that somebody is gay without using nasty language. Nobody should be using degrading terms to describe a group of people. Seriously, am I really asking too much to suggest somebody be treated like a human being? I don't care who says it. Blacks, whites, liberals, conservatives. The f word is just a nasty word and shouldn't be used.

    Well, considering that this is habitual behavior (not simply the gay slurs, but the violent and threatening behavior), I'd like to see Hollywood treat him the way that they treated Mel Gibson, whose behavior was no more outrageous. In fact, given that Baldwin was sober when he made the slurs and physically assaulted the photographer, it's actually worse. MSNBC can start by firing him.

    I never knew that 40 years ago when I would overhear my grandfather call someone a cock sucker he was actually using a anti-gay slur and he must of been a homophobe for doing so.

    They are just words and I could really give a shit less what people say or think.

    Ah, but the left constantly tells us that words hurt, unless it's a leftist who is using them. Then it's okay.
