In case you didn't see it, this happened:
'Last Thursday was national "coming out" day. This Monday is national "disown your son" day.' - Ann Coulter
First off, let me say that I truly believe that in this country, she has the right to both have the beliefs that fueled this statement, and express her opinion. I have always had a very firm conviction that we support individuality and uniqueness in the US, even if it's an unpopular position or we simply don't like it. For me, it is only when that belief or statement crosses the line into action that it becomes something worth fighting over.
Second, and this is something that's starting to tickle my gag reflexes a little even as I type, I have to respect Ms. Coulter in her not rounding off her edges or couching her words just because they're hard to hear. I don't like what she has to say one teeny bit. But I applaud her for having the convictions to say them and stand by them in the face of scrutiny and adversity. What that we could all be that true to ourselves.
