A Response to Ann Coulter

Recently Ann Coulter used the F-word to describe John Edwards. In a rebuttal that explains Coulter's lack of concern or repentance for using the word, Andrew Sullivan writes a brilliant piece against her main defense. Her defense in using it is that since the word wasn't directed at a gay man, then it wasn't a homophobic slur, per say.

In my opinion, his response is the most eloquent piece I've ever read about the powerful ramifications towards gay men that results when someone directs the F-word at a straight man.
