Dan Savage On Mitt Romney's Gay Stance: 'That Man Is A Homophobe'

True to form, Dan Savage is mincing few words when it comes to Mitt Romney.

The outspoken lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights advocate and syndicated columnist told John Fugelsang (sitting in for Joy Behar) that he didn't distinguish "between an honest bigot and a dishonest bigot" and that the Republican presidential candidate was "100 percent anti-gay."

Savage also noted, "Whether someone punches you in the nose because they really hate you, or they punch you in the nose because they want to impress people who hate you, you still have a broken goddamn nose...What I care about is policy, and his policies are homophobic, and by my estimation, that man is a homophobe."

In other Dan Savage news, Viacom officials announced this week that a second, hour-long installment of the award-winning "It Gets Better" TV special will air on MTV and Logo two days ahead of National Coming Out Day, with Savage once again serving as anchor.
