It is mind-boggling that serious news outlets would dedicate a story to the horrible scandal of a teenager using the word “queer” in a tweet six years ago:
When Murray was 15 years old, he tweeted at his friends (via his since-verified Twitter account) using an anti-gay slur to defame them. Four offensive tweets remained active on his account late Saturday night but were eventually deleted by Sunday morning — when Murray apologized for his insensitive language in a tweet.
Who was it that told me this summer that nobody would think of using gauche teenage writings against people who aren’t trying to get hired for serious governmental positions? This kind isn’t trying to work for the government. He simply played a good game of football.
No, slippery slope is not real. No, it will never happen to anybody else. (And when it will, they will totally deserve it, the bastards.)
I was right the whole time.
