I don't think Tracy Morgan is funny, and his gay jokes were in the poorest of taste. But who cares? While we continue to fight for our right to marry and to defend our right to serve in the military, why are we wasting energy on this?
It seems to me that Tracy has channeled the anti-gay anger in our culture and is holding it up for us to examine. The things he said are merely more outrageous versions of homophobic beliefs that all of us live with -- and silently accept -- every day.
