“Because apologizing and moving on doesn’t make the world a better place for people who are gay or people who are transgender. Being an ally does.”-Don Lemon
From time to time I have put Don Lemon on blast on these electronic pages for fumbling on trans issues. But since the Orange Fool has been in power, he has been on fire in terms of calling crap out on a wide range of subjects.
