The disappointment of Morgan Spurlock

I, like many of my fellow queers, loved Morgan Spurlock’s McDonald’s exposé Supersize Me as well as his interesting FX show 30 Days, wherein folks with opposing viewpoints take a glimpse into each other’s lives. But this clever man has come under fire lately for his mishandling of a debate on gay parenting.

I, like many of my queer blogger/writer peers, understand that at times GLAAD (Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) can occasionally go overboard in their desire to combat offensive speech. I appreciate a nasty joke here and there. But Queerty, Dan Savage and most of the Q media have got glad’s back on this one. Though I haven’t yet seen the entire episode I watched the clip in question and am inclined to agree.
