1000x better than “It Gets Better.”  Stop lying to kids, it doesn’t get better unless we make it better, and we can only make it better by utterly destroying heteropatriarchy.

*destroying racist ableist (all the -ists) heteropatriarchy (kyriarchy?)

Yesyesyesyesyesyesyesyesyes

THANK YOU. “It Gets Better” was a well-intended but incredibly problematic campaign. It will NOT “get better” until we MAKE IT better.

I refuse to be told “It Gets Better” by a man who blames homophobia on poc and has publicly ridiculed bisexual people and trans* women.

Submission from anonymous:

Has Dan Savage’s anti-rural bigotry gotten much attention yet?  He was the apparent author of an extremely offensive essay in The Stranger, “The Urban Archipelago”.  The gist is privileged upper-middle class metropolitan/suburban people are the source of all good values and progress, while rural people are dumb hicks who should not be catered to.  It is also based on a lie: county maps showing Democrat and Republican voting, with most of the large “blue” areas obviously rural yet he claims with an apparent straight face that they are urban. 

Classist tripe if you ask me.  And that he thinks VOTING, for anyone, especially Democrats, is a sign of how progressive one is, that says a lot about him too.

RE: Buck Angel, pussy, and pronouns (submission from dudecrooks)

On 4/11/12, Anonymous inquired about  “an interview I saw awhile ago where he was with a transman, and he was constantly calling him a she and referring to his ‘pussy.’”  The interview is question is here: http://www.thestranger.com/seattle/SavageLove?oid=4319746.

(Mod Note: I don’t think that’s the interview being referred to.  He did use “he” here, although he also used the word “pussy” which, while some trans men are quite okay with using, not all trans men are)

Dan Savage is a bully, a hypocrite, and CERTAINLY not someone to be hailed as a hero.

Woah, when did he say that? I’m not denying he did, but, wtf? D:

That’s what he said about ace people. He’s also said a lot of shitty things about bisexuals (e.g. here) and trans* folks (some on that here and here) and others in the community. He’s also said a lot of racist shit (he repeatedly blamed POC for the passage of Prop 8 in California), he’s said fat shaming things, and when people asked him to stop using “retarded” in a derogatory way, he made a joke of it. So much for being against bullying.
He’s generally just a really shitty person, imo.

Finally, a post from the-unpopular-opinions that I actually agree with.

I’m not a fan of Dan Savage. I really haven’t ever been, despite one of my best friends being a die-hard listener to his show, I just never caught the fever. Aside from his piece about bisexuality (and I’m not even going to get into that right now), his appearance last night on The Colbert Report (which isn’t online yet, as far as I can tell) was nothing short of enraging.

But, he’s fighting the good fight! He’s a visible gay leader! Don’t split hairs!

I’m sorry, Savageites (is that a term? Is that a thing?). His interview with Colbert left me rage-shaking. Here’s why.

Savage was on the show to promote his idea that abandoning the staunch monogamy of marriage can help save one in the right circumstances. Sure, things get a little crazy on The Colbert Report and maybe he threw in some half-sentences he didn’t mean in the fray. But you know what? Dan Savage is smart. He believes what he said.

And what he said was that “heterosexual marriage” is between two consenting adults, no longer is it an exchange of property, and the two adults enter on an even playing field. Of course, getting in to the times when it is NOT the case would not be conducive to his argument.

Oh, and his whole “we are not geared for monogamy” theory (which I essentially don’t have a problem with — I think that consenting adults should have the ability and freedom to do whatever they want between themselves and whatever other people they involve) comes from the misalignment of male and female. “You know how a male mind works,”* was the suggestion to Colbert. And no, he never actually says “men aren’t monogamous, women cling to monogamy!” but the implication is there.

Dan, Dan, Dan. Do you know why “men aren’t monogamous, women cling to monogamy”? Because of people like you expressing that idea. The media is filled with images that insist women want something steady, something sure, and that men, if they don’t already, should want to sleep with anything that moves. Not only is this insulting to MEN, Dan, but this is insulting to women. So stop. Seriously.

Monogamy might be outdated and something that should be negotiated with couples and not by society, I’m hardly arguing with that point. But please, don’t claim that the reason comes from something special about men or women that makes the very notion unlikely or even impossible.

A friend of mine found this quote by Dan Savage, but neither of us could quite place our finger on why it struck us so badly. It seems so… not quite homophobic (and I apologize for using a -phobic word, but I don’t think heterosexist works quite right, either), but just nasty towards gay men and assumes that all gay men either have AIDS or are so promiscuous that they’ll soon have AIDS:

"So why not drug-support payments? If the state can go after deadbeat dads and make them pay child support why can’t it go after deadbeat infectors and make them pay drug support? Now that would be radical. Infect someone with HIV out of malice or negligence and the state will come after you for half the cost of the meds the person you infected is going to need. (The man you infected is 50 percent responsible for his own infection.) Once a few dozen men in New York City, San Francisco, Toronto, Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, and Vancouver are having their wages docked for drug-support payments, other gay men will be a lot more careful about not spreading HIV. Trojan won’t be able to make condoms fast enough."

"Fuck No, Dan Savage" was created to showcase the cissexist, sexist, anti-asexual, anti-bisexual, classist, racist, sizeist, and ableist douchebaggery of Dan Savage, of "It Gets Better" (for privileged queers only) fame.

It's currently moderated by Kerry (basicallykerry), Christy (sciencefangirl), Phineas (expectedly) and Em (epiphenomenon).
