Maggie Gallagher's new website: Where gay is alleged?

by Jeremy Hooper

Earlier today I showed you Maggie Gallagher's new "Drudge Report"-emulating website. Well now check this out: I just noticed that Maggie is apparently planning to follow the editorial guidelines of far-right sites like WorldNetDaily and the AFA's One News Now, putting the word "gay" in fear quotes:

[Maggie Report]

Not even "gay marriage," mind you, which could be construed as saying that particular legal notion isn't meant for consumption (something Maggie certainly believes). The concept in fear quotes is "gay" itself, implying that the sexual orientation is what Maggie and/or her editors want readers to believe is up for further debate.

Then again, Maggie has gone on record to tell gay people they "can always control their behavior" -- "behavior" she admits she considers "unfortunate." And she also used her nationally syndicated column to suggest President Bush provide "ex-gay" therapy with more research dollars, as well as admit that she considers homosexuality to be "at a minimum, a sexual dysfunction much as impotence or infertility" and "like infertility...a sexual disability preventing certain individuals from participating in the normal reproductive patterns of the human species." So maybe this "make sense."
