The manager of the Chicago White Sox, Ozzie Guillen, referred to Chicago Sun-Times columnist Jay Mariotti as a fag, amongst other not-so-nice terms for being gay. But Guillen insists he didn’t mean to offend anyone. Apparently, in Venezuela, fag isn’t a derogatory word. Besides…
Guillen also told Couch that he has gay friends, attends WNBA games, went to a Madonna concert and plans to go to the Gay Games in Chicago. [link]
Dude. Ozzie. Are you serious? Attending WNBA games and going to a Madonna concert don’t exactly give you the fag card to be waving around, pal.
I get that Mariotti can be kind of a douchebag, just by reading some of his articles, but let’s call him a douchebag. Fag is way overused, and douchebag is funnier. And when I hear a Major League Baseball manager call someone a douchebag, I laugh. A lot. When I hear them call someone a fag, I just get angry. And you won’t like me when I’m angry.
