Ghosting 'Rogue': On Palin wordsmith's anti-gayness

by Jeremy Hooper

Lynn-Vincent-Palin's-ghost-writerWe've yet to hear whether or not Sarah Palin's new memoir contains much (or even any) gay-centric stuff. But her ghostwriter Lynn Vincent certainly has a trail of affronts. This from Media Matters:

In her many years writing for World, Vincent has authored several columns on gay rights issues, frequently deriding gay men and lesbians as abnormal and "devian[t]," often trafficking in hackneyed stereotypes of the gay community. Vincent even went so far as to lament the American Psychiatric Association's decision to declassify homosexuality as a mental disorder, and she also wrote that the struggle for gay rights differs from that for African-American civil rights and women's suffrage, in that it will not "benefit[] society at large."
